Reasons to choose HTM

There are lots of reasons to choose HTM as your minibus provider, not least our commitment to safety standards and full support throughout the life of your vehicle. Shown here are some of the benefits you will enjoy when you choose HTM as your minibus provider.

Vehicle type and specification

We procure Ford Transit minibuses which we believe offer a good build quality, have a long life and are reliable. Reversing sensors and heated electric mirrors come as standard and the minibuses meet Euro 6.2 standards.


For Hampshire County Council establishments, fully comprehensive insurance is included in our contract hire price.

Tyres and windscreens

We cover all tyre repairs not caused by negligence and we offer 24-hour mobile cover for repairs to tyres and windscreens.

Residual values

Our contract hire arrangement offers a fair and realistic residual value for the length of the contract and the anticipated wear and tear on the vehicle.

Excess and low mileage

We charge just 5p per excess mile and set realistic annual mileage rates.

Vehicle recovery

We offer a full recovery service that will get your vehicle to a place of repair following a breakdown or accident and ensure that all passengers are transported to their destination.

Additional months

Our contacts never ask for additional monthly payments up front.


All maintenance of your vehicle is included in our contract hire arrangement and is an optional extra for outright purchase customers. We operate five modern workshops across Hampshire, staffed by professional and fully-trained Technicians. Courtesy vehicles are available on request, subject to availability.

Accident repairs

Following an accident, we will make a full assessment of the required repairs and arrange for estimates and the final repair to be carried out on your behalf.
