Bells Buses provided a minibus solution to our nursery at short notice, where other providers could not. Further more the costs quoted were competitive and the service friendly.

Colin - Kingfisher Nurseries

I must say that the 17 seat minibus your company has provided me with was brilliant. The vehicle was perfect, my family enjoyed it and the driver who dropped it was very kind aswell. It was nice to do business with you. Thanks.


Thank you very much Andrew, myself and my group really enjoyed the minibus that I hired from your company on the 1st to the 6th Sept. I will pass on your number to my friends who will be interested in your bus and I will definately be coming back to hire with your company. Thank you very much.


We were running a charitable event to raise money for the local community and Bells Buses were kind enough to give us a discount on the already competitive price. The team were friendly, efficient and ensured that we had everything we needed. The bus was almost new and really comfortable - I can say that as I lived in it fir the whole weekend whilst on the Three Peaks Challenge!

CSH Surrey

We at Carlin motorsport have used Bells Buses several times and have always found the company to be exceptionally professional and delivered on time exactly what was promised and agreed. The minibuses are always well maintained and very clean, as our businessis in motorsport we are always working to very tight time scalesand when you have to rely on outside suppliers you have to be sure they will deliver on time which is why I would recommend using Bells Buses.

Carlin Motorsport

Thank you Andrew for making our Cricket Tour of England a really pleasureable experience. The 3 x 9 seat minibusesyou supplied were great to drive - new, clean and very spacious. We also appreciatedthe no hassle service at the beginning and end of the hire, after our long journey we were able to go straight to our hotel in Teddington where you met us and then able to drop the vehicles at Heathrow airport where your friendly staff met us again. We will most certainly recommendyou to our fellow Australians and hopefully see you again on our next tour.


We leased a minibus from Bells Buses and the customer service from the enquiry stage through to delivery of the vehicle was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and our endless questions were met with courteous prompt replies. We would certainly recommend this company.

Future Choices

I would just like to say that buying a vehicle from Bellsbuses was a process made simple. My main goal was to buy a safe, reliable vehicle for Reading Sea Cadets to transport young people. Bellsbuses were very accomodating by arranging an independent vehicle check by a Ford Dealer and even arranging delivery of the vehicle too. Reading Sea Cadets now have a fantastic minibus with low mileage. I would definitely recommend Bellsbuses to other youth organisations that are looking for a minibus.  

Reading Sea Cadets

When buying a minibus from Bells Buses, I found their staff incredibly helpful and went out of their way, even helping with other things we needed in our organisation such as getting us a new sign for our office.

Andy, Regenerate

Bells Buses were very helpful. The vehicle purchased was exactly as it was advertised. All the staff are very dedicated to provide genuine customer service. Yes, I must admit that I am a satisfied customer and I have already recommended you to a friend of mine.


I found the whole experience of buying a vehicle from Bells Buses extremely easy, we viewed it one day and bought it the next. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our needs even to the extent of coming out to let us view the vehicle late on a Saturday night. Being ex-lease the vehicles for sale are of an extremely high standard and excellent condition. I would recommend this company to anyone.

They are friendly and reliable and very good to do business with, and I would certainly recommend them to potential new customers.

Great Service, we are very happy with our minibus. Thank you!

Wroxall Primary School

When trying to organize a 15 day minibus tour of the UK and Ireland for 7 mature adults from Australia the task seemed impossible until I discovered Bells Buses. An email to Andrew and a short phone call all was confirmed. When we arrived in London our VW Transporter was delivered to our hotel and arrangements made for the pickup at Heathrow. The quality of service and vehicle supplied were impeccable and I would recommend Bells Buses to anybody wanting the best in European self drive holidays.

David Kinlyside - Gold Coast Australia

We have used Bells Buses extensively over the last few years. They offer exceptional value for money, excellent quality vehicles, and superb customer service. The option to have vehicles delivered or collected being particularly useful. So far we've taken buses and vans as far as Snowdonia and Switzerland. A fantastic company who have enabled us to offer adventurous activities to far more young people than we could do otherwise. Thank you!

Alex Ward - Explorer Scout Leader, Southwark

Purchasing a vehicle through your company was a pleasurable experience. We were treated professionally and your staff were always very helpful and courteous. Your deadlines were kept and we look forward to purchasing our next vehicle through you.

Bryan Spence - Carpenters Arms

This is the second bus I have brought from Bells Buses and the service this time was just as good as the first. I would recommend them to anybody. (July 2016)

Brian Hunter - Hunters Cabs & Minibuses

A big thank you to Aptiga Ltd, for making the purchase of East Surrey Dial-a-Ride’s latest accessible Minibus so straight forward. It was a pleasure to deal with Penny and Simon who were clearly very focused on their customer’s needs. We hope to purchase our next vehicle from you.

Graham Stevens - 2016 - East Surrey Dial-a-Ride

I feel I must just drop you a quick email to express our thanks in the way you dealt with the sale of the Ford Transit Minibus to us a couple of days ago. Having dealt with numerous vehicle sales outlets in the past for coaches, cars, motorcycles etc. you were by far the best we’ve experienced! You were friendly, knowledgeable and delivered on all your promises in what we’d agreed at our meeting, very grateful.

Hodge's Coaches (Sandhurst) Limited

From one mini bus specialist to another - very nice to do business with you! We will certainly keep you in mind for future purchases. Thanks goes to your valeter's who did a very professional job inside and out on these two.

Britannia Coaches

Fantastic to deal with, with most of the deal being carried out over the phone and email we narrowed it down to two vehicles with some rare factory options. we got an early morning flight down from Glasgow to Gatwick where we were met by a driver to take us to the showroom. We were able to inspect both vehicles side by side under cover and by lunchtime we were driving our new addition to our fleet home. Nice easy hassle free transaction with well presented and serviced vehicles with all the keys and paperwork present on the day. Definitely recommend to anyone that's considering buying a vehicle and stay a distance away.

SHM Travel Ltd

Very helpful and efficient. Thank you. January 2017

Chingford Foundation School

"I had a really painless buying experience from Bells Buses. All the staff are very professional, especially Penny, who was my main contact. The vehicle is of high quality and was well priced. All in all, I am looking forward to buying my next vehicle from Bells Buses" March 2017

Arnold Dehaney

I just wanted to let you know that I was very happy with the bus and to also thank you for the very professional way the transaction was handled. The three people that I had dealings with, yourself, Lilian and Victor created a very good impression of your firm. I hope that we may do business again in the future. May 2017

Alastair Macpherson

Today we took delivery of our leased mini bus from Bells Buses. From the moment I called them with my enquiry, I knew they were THE company we would be dealing with. No question I asked was too much trouble to them. Very professional and understanding. I am so grateful for a stress free transaction. They even arranged to have it sign written before delivery. I cannot praise them enough and would highly recommend them. Special thanks to Penny Poulson and Lilian Turner. Thank you so much ladies, I'm over the moon and so are all the young people we care for! May 2017

Gina Hunnings - Stars Day Provision

The Carpenters Arms, Loughborough

We have been using Bells Buses for over a year now and we find it is an excellent service. Very friendly staff and always there to assist you when you need it. The rates are excellent and buses are top condition. We would definitely recommend using Bells Buses.

Carey Coaches

Perfect service: on time, excellent driver, spotless minibus, and most competitive of 3 quotes. Highly recommended.

Marc (March 2018)

I just wanted to drop you a message to say thank you for the great service this weekend. Steve was great and the bus was lovely. I would 100% recommend Bells Buses. I am one happy customer. Thank you again!

Zuzanna Reymer (March 2018)

Steve was great at the start of the day and got us to the venue in good time. Victor was very supportive of the party on the way home, stopping when necessary! Overall we were very happy with the service on the day and the booking arrangements for the event. Thanks.

Kevin (May 2018)

Bells Buses are a fantastic company. We hired a 16 seater minibus to go to Wembley from Surrey. The booking process was easy, efficient and Sue made sure everything ran smoothly. The vehicle itself was comfortable and spotless. Our driver, Victor was a true gentlemen; he turned up early, was very polite and friendly and made sure we knew where he was parked for meeting up later. He really made our journey easy and great fun. We would definitely book again and highly recommend Bells Buses.

Kari Perry (May 2018)

Simon, Thanks for your help to everyone at Bells Buses. Everyone we had contact with from there went out of their way to assist us. The bus was excellent, no problems the whole time we had it and suited our purpose fully. Would recommend you to anyone.

Ken Parry (June 2018)

Thank you for arranging the delivery of my mini bus. I'm very happy with the vehicle, nice and clean. From the first viewing to delivery your whole team have been very helpful and i will recommend you to everyone who may be looking for a mini bus in the future.

Steve Wakeman (July 2018)

We used Bell's Buses to take us to the Leeds Castle Classical Concert in Kent for the second time. Andy drove us, dropped us off and picked us up. He is so reliable and it takes the worry away so that the whole party can have a drink or two. The bus is clean, comfortable and air conditioned and Andy really helps lugging everything on and off the bus both ends. He's also incredibly patient as it can take a while to get all the picnic paraphernalia on and off....and he doesn't mind who he drops where. Thanks guys - much appreciated. We'll be back next year for another trip!

Jenny (July 2018)

The bus we rented over the weekend was exactly what we hoped for - modern, clean and very comfortable for drivers and passengers. Many thanks for your teams help in getting the rental sorted out on a short notice. We will definitely use your services in the future and we would definitely recommend your company to others if asked.

Radwan [Ziptech Services] (Aug 2018)

I found Bells Buses were very helpful and responsive during the booking process of a minibus which was managed via email. The minibus provided for our group day trip to Brighton was in excellent condition and was clean and comfortable. The Driver was courteous and responded kindly to our requests en route and was on time at both the pickup and drop off points. I took several quotes from different companies for the day trip and found Bells very competitively priced. I would happily use this service again.

Ian (October 2018)

Thank you for your prompt and efficient service in booking our minibus. Having a minibus made the journey very easy and enjoyable, Victor was such a considerate and safe driver, the bus was lovely- full marks allround. We heard of Bell's buses by a Google search and your informative replies and reasonable price helped us to make the decision to book with you.

Carole (September 2018)

We had a great weekend and Victor was extremely accommodating on the bus and friendly. The service was punctual and reliable and would recommend it to others! Thank you and your team for organising.

Nada (October 2018)

Thanks for such a great service. We leased a 9 seater Ford Toureno for our Tourism business from Bells Buses and we were very happy with the vehicle and the support from the team. Highly recommended and many thanks.

Rustic Tours (October 2018)

I can confirm that over the period of the lease we have at Paul’s Place always received excellent service from Simon Packham and Penny Poulson. The support received has been second to none and we always knew that if we had a problem with the minibus all we had to do was to contact Simon or Penny and all would be sorted.

Pauls Place Charity (October 2018)

We were looking for a bus for a family of 8 for our holiday trip and I was reluctant to use one of the inflexible and impersonal big firms again, having done so before. Came across Bells Buses by pure chance. and to me they are the perfect example of why we should support independent businesses over the faceless international giants: Bells came in cheaper, delivered and collected the bus, there was always someone friendly to speak to (not some "chatbot" or call centre overseas); they generously upgraded me to the newest bus when purchased (I did not ask or know about it) and were completely flexible when our plans kept changing up to the last minute..hands-down winner on every count. Would not hesitate to recommend and use again.

Nick E (October 2018)

We have been working with Bells Buses for two years. During this time, Andrew and team have supported us to streamline and improve our bus service, devising routes which suit our parent body. The buses themselves are of a very high standard, and the drivers are polite and professional. In addition to our daily school transport service, Bells Buses are also able to step in to help us out for additional runs when required, with the same professionalism and efficiency.

Staines Prep School (October 2018)

Brand new bus, gentle driver with a sense of humour and great customer service - what's not to like.

Fred (October 2018)

Thanks so much for the other day, our driver David was wonderful and we had an overall great experience. Will definitely be contacting you again for future trips!

Dahlia, Brazilian Fantasy (November 2018)

Thank you for the delivery yesterday, everything looks great and I know we can work together on future projects. The service etc all along has been first rate so thank you.

Headmaster, Donhead Preparatory School (November 2018)

I have been searching online for hiring a bus with a driver and that’s how I came across Bells Buses. The reviews seemed to be very good so I decided to give it a try. The drivers were absolutely nice and helpful. I can’t recommend them enough. Everything was perfect, our drivers were super friendly and provided amazing service for us. Thank you very much!

Danny (November 2018)

This is our first minibus purchase and we found Bells Buses to be professional, helpful and affordable. We'd definitely use them again.

Noel Campbel,l Head teacher, St Thomas Becket Catholic School (November 2018)

Epsom college had a very professional approach from Bells Buses. The mini bus was well presented and fully fitted with all that was advertised. Penny keep me updated on all the progress throughout the process of buying the mini bus. I would use Bells again. (December 2018)

Bob Bonner, Epsom College

I would just like to say thank you for the service Bells Buses gave us last Thursday, taking St. Stephen's to Lambeth Palace. Your driver, Steve, was very good and made the experience even more pleasurable. Please pass on our thanks to him.

Frances Holland, Headteacher, St. Stephen's C.E. Primary School (December 2018)

Our driver from Bells Buses, Victor, was brilliant! We had such a great afternoon - he was fun and flexible. We needed picking up at 1.30pm and he arrived early 👍 He drove slowly so that we didn’t spill our Prosecco and he even more a mask with the birthday girls face on it at our request. She thought it was hilarious! We had booked him to pick us up at 7pm but I phoned him at 5.30pm and asked whether we could be picked up at 6pm and that was no problem for him either. A fabulous service. I would highly recommend Bells Buses.

Laura Parry (January 2019)

Thank you so much for providing the minibus for our trip last night. It was very clean and comfortable and all our Seniors enjoyed the ride. David was a great driver. Cheerful and patient, with a great sense of humour, he put everyone at their ease and so the atmosphere on the bus was relaxed and happy. I have never organised a coach outing before, so I was fussing a bit, but with Bells nothing was too much trouble. I needed to know the layout of the minibus for the very Senior passengers, and the journey timings etc and Bells were very helpful which (as the organiser of the trip) put my mind at ease. If I have to run a trip like this again, then I would definitely choose Bells and would highly recommend them. Again a big thank you. Best wishes, Grace 😄

Grace Jones (January 2019)

We as a company were in dire straits when our bus died on us. Bells Buses were amazing with the organisation of a substitute bus, found all the team to be very professional and pleasant. Would highly recommend the company to any one and have done already. We now have a new bus but, should we require another one on loan at any time, Bells Buses it will be. Thanks to everyone.

Cheam Priory Centre (February 2019)

I just wanted to say we had a great day with Mary Jane Rodriguez and her group. Steve was first class and the day went totally according to plan. Thank you also for your help. You are now my ‘go to’ coach company for the occasions when I have a larger group.

Mike (March 2019)

I just want to say a very, very special thank you for everything you both did. It was wonderful. Steve was a great driver and we were so well taken care of you by both. Hope to recommend you to other and maybe even use you again, myself.

Jane (March 2019)

Thank you kindly to your drivers. My daughter has a terribly nervous disposition so I am most happy with the service. After a change of company & driver which she was very fearful of, she is most content now.

Home to School Transport Parent (March 2019)

Morning just a little note but a big thank you to our driver Victor last night. We had an amazing day which was made even better with his punctuality , helpfulness and made all feel very welcome 🙏 so a big thank you. Hope to do business with you again x please pass on to Victor x From all the girls and ladies that went to summertime Ball

Sarah (June 2019)

I just wanted to thank you and Bell's for the efficient and friendly service I received when renting the minibus from you. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Richard (June 2019)

Just wanted to thank you very much for all your help with organising the minibus for the wedding on Saturday. Our driver Steve was very pleasant and obliging, much appreciated. Kind Regards,

Jane Chandler (July 2018)

Just a quick note to let you know that all went well on Saturday. We arrived in good time. Victor was very courteous, friendly and indeed adaptable to one or two of our requests! Thank you for your assistance throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bells Buses to friends or relations with similar transport needs!

Richard Merrett (August 2018)

Our little group from Reigate to Islington would like to say a big thank you to David and Ted for really looking after us, most efficient on time plus so helpful with all our bits and pieces. Please pass on our thanks. Kindest regards Dallas

Dallas Taylor (August 2019)

Ted was so friendly and we all were very impressed with the service we received. Ted was punctual and went above and beyond to make sure our journey ran smoothly. We would definitely use Bells Buses again.

Rhiannon Jenkins (August 2019)

I would have no hesitation in recommending Bells Buses to anybody! I have received nothing but a prompt professional service from all, especially Penny. Information and queries have always been handled effectively and timely whether by phone or email. Bells Buses have delivered us a service exactly as they said they would. I would like to thank you for helping us out at a time when we were in crisis with our transport situation and should we have problems in the future you would most definitely be my first point of contact. Best Wishes

Jessica Hilsdon - Milford and Villages Day Centre

My experience in buying the bus has been excellent and very comfortable dealing with you. Am looking forward to purchasing another one from you in the future. I will also be recommending my friends to you. Thanks Eric - Living Flames Baptist Church

Eric - Living Flames Baptist Church

Very good service from start to finish.

Jon Brand

Hi Simon, Just a note to say a huge thank you for all your help with arranging the vehicle and making the experience of hiring so seamless. The van was terrific and the meet and greet were so much easier than I was expecting. I am very happy to recommend you and your company.

Sean Macnamara

Penny and Lilian at Belles Buses have always been a great help and made the purchase of the vehicles a personal matter. I feel that we are dealing with friends who are easily accessible rather than a nameless salesperson who doesn’t know our Charity. It is a pleasure to deal with them as I trust we will do again in the future. December 2017

Bryan Spence - The Carpenter's Arms

Just a quick line to thank you for your excellent service last weekend. Everything was great. Steve phoned to let us know he had arrived at the collection point in good time, he was helpful and a pleasure to have met. I would have absolutely no reservation in recommending your company in future. Again, thanks

Lynne Shuard (March 2018)

Hi Simon, I just wanted to write to commend you and your company for the great service that you provided in hiring the 12 seater to me and my family for our holiday. From the booking to the payment and all the correspondence was handled in a very professional and smooth manner. The drop off and pick up service was excellent and I would also like to commend Stuart for his promptness, patience and professionalism which made for such ease in the transition from you to us and back again. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to family and friends should they ever need to hire a larger car.

Shaun Jeremiah (Jan 2018)

Everything was perfect, Victor was a truly lovely man. Will definitely be recommending you and using you again in the future. Many thanks.

Liz (April 2018)

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the excellent service received by yourselves. Our driver Steve was very friendly and extremely accommodating which all added to the special weekend for Mum's 70th, definite asset to your company. We will not hesitate in recommending your firm to family and friends and we hope to use you again in the near future.

Clare Curry (March 2018)

Just wanted to drop a note to tell what a terrific experience we had with Bell's Bus service. The minibus was superb and worked beautifully for our party. David was the best part of the experience. He was personable, considerate and very professional. Everyone very much enjoyed the experience. Would certainly utilize your company again .

Tom Every (March 2018)

I would like to thank you and the whole staff at Bell Buses for helping our family today. We could not have had an easy ride to the worship centre and cemetery without your company. I learnt Dave was extremely thoughtful and helpful in picking up and dropping off other members of the family considering this was not part of the pre-arranged journey plan. So thank you very much and hope to use your company again in future. Regards, Larry

Larry (Feb 2018)

Thank you so very much for everything- David was an absolute gentleman really helpful and approachable and so friendly to everyone. Will not hesitate to use this company again.

Androulla (Jan 2018)

Big thanks to our driver Victor on Saturday . All positive comments from my party on mini bus provided , clean ,comfortable and of course Air Conditioning. Any future outings and i know which company to call.

Geoff (March 2018)

Steve was amazing on time and very detailed with instructions on where to locate him after our day out. He was very friendly to all the group and made us all feel very comfortable on the bus. We would be sure to use Bells Buses again for any future trips! Thanks Fran

Fran (Dec 2017)

We were absolutely thrilled with the service you provided. Steve was fantastic, friendly, reliable and most importantly on time! Thank you for all your help in the leading up to our event. When we do another event/if anyone else needs a transport company, I will certainly be recommending you.

Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK Ltd (Oct 2017)

We required a minibus service in connection with our son's birthday party, and Bell's Buses turned out to be a perfect fit: The bus, a Ford Transit, was as advertised, only a few months old, clean and in mint condition. The driver, Steve, proved to be exceptionally good, completely reliable, and highly experienced in dealing with a group of boisterous boys. Having done quite extensive research before, I can also say that Bell's pricing was highly competitive, especially considering the quality of the service. I would use them again, or recommend the company to others, without hesitation. Frank - Father - Chelsea, London

Frank (Aug 2017)

Hi Sue, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for helping organise the travel for my sister's hen and also to Steve who was brilliant on Saturday. He was so professional and friendly and it was so reassuring to receive a phone call from him on the morning to say he was on his way. It set the day off to a very good start. I will definitely be using you again when we need minibus services and will be recommending on too. Best wishes, Natalia

Natalia (July 2017)

Thank you so much for taking such good care of us on Saturday. You were amazing and made it a very special day for us.

Jackie (March 2017)

I would personally like to thank Andrew for the fantastic service that we received from your company. You took us to Hampton Court Flower show and we had an amazing and stress free time. The children loved the day and we all felt very relaxed with trip. Thank you for helping the children on and off the minibus and with their car seats. We really appreciate all of your help and will definitely use your service again.

Emma Ockenden - Toad Hall Nursery - Chessington (July 2016)

Dear Andrew, can I just thank you very much for the transport you provided and, in particular, for the excellent driver. He was so helpful with loading and unloading all our picnic items and particularly patient when the event went on longer than expected. I am sure we will use your company again when we need transport for a large number of people. Thank you again.

Su (June 2016)

Just to say a really big thank you again for the great service taking our group to Cheltenham Festival. Everything ran to schedule, nothing was too much trouble and you were happy to adjust the plans to meet our needs – as well as entering into the relax atmosphere of the day! In addition, having got quotes from 5 other companies, I also know you are very good value for money. We’d definitely use Bells Buses again and would recommend you to any of our friends. Thanks again Gordon

Gordon (March 2016)

Hi Andrew, I would like to express my gratitude and that of our Ballybunion Golf Club group which used "Bell Buses" for our recent golf outing to Wentworth and Westhill golf clubs. The bus service was of the highest standard, with a friendly, punctual, efficient and professional service from start to finish. Communication with the company and our driver was also very convenient. Kind Regards to all concerned,
