18/02/2014 - Maynes Coaches School Livery Competition 2014

Design your own coach livery

We are running a Maynes coach livery competition open to all primary 7 classes in all schools in Moray. I have attached a copy of our new 2014 coach livery and also a blank version should you wish to enter, or why not just design your future Maynes coach??  What we ask is for a class from your school to design and send us your ideas, what should our company's coach livery be like in the future. We have plenty ideas for you on our company's Flickr Page http://www.flickr.com/photos/busdaddy1/ or on our website www.maynes.co.uk including our history pages with pictures going back to 1947.

As a family business we know that primary 7 is such an important and exciting year for everyone in the class, with that in mind, the one winning entry chosen from all the schools in Moray will be awarded free coach hire for their whole class. The class will receive one free coach trip for a maximum of 50 miles in a 30 mile radius of your school between 09.30 and 14.30 at a date agreed with our Company. All we ask is for your class to design and send us your own ideas and our judging panel will choose the winner.

Maynes Coaches are one of the few UK Coach Operators to pass all the current independently audited processes. Currently Maynes are the only Scottish member of the Guild Of British Coach Operators and one of three Coachmarque members north of the border. With our company now becoming one of the few Scottish members of the BUSK Simply Safe scheme and recently becoming a Benchmark maximum six star accredited Operator.

 When making transport arrangements for others, the law requires the organiser to be aware of their legal obligations and expects safeguards and systems to be in place for this purpose. On this page BUSK UK, leading independent advisers on transporting children and young people safely by road, provide guidance on how best to do that. For more information visit www.busk-uk.com or our own company's specific school travel page at http://www.maynes.co.uk/busk/

Our history

Since 1947 our company have been providing customer service in the coach hire business, we are regarded as one of the premier operators in Scotland. Maynes Coaches has a wealth of experience to draw on regarding School Trips. With our coaches providing transport all year around from local trips to full UK and continental tours.

Our drivers are fully specifically Cpc Trained in modules from Safe Driving to Customer Care & The School Run to Emergencies & Evacuation and finally Drivers Hours. In the interest of security all our driving team's backgrounds are PVG or Disclosure Scotland checked. We also undertake driver medical and licence checks. We have strict health and safety procedures in place along with risk assessment policy's to help your planning and trip go ahead with ease.

 Obtaining three quotes from a transport company and choosing the cheapest is definitely not demonstrating the correct culture and attitude to the safety of pupils in a school's care. The law requires a school to provide a 'safe journey. We have joined simply safe to prove our commitment to schools and other groups that we always travel with safety at the forefront.

 90% of our fleet under 3 years of age with our oldest vehicle of 7 years. All our vehicles fitted with 2 or 3 point safety belts. All our coaches meet R66 rollover protection and carry vehicle specific safety cards giving passengers safety instructions.

 Have a look at our company's website and contact our office to see if we can assist in your schools travel needs. We look forward to receiving your school's entry before the end of March and good luck.
