Do you carry or transport customers?
We would love to but unfortunately we are not licensed or able to carry passengers, we act as a stationary bar at your event
How much does it cost to hire?
The hire charge depends on your event location, number of guests and which package you opt for. Please call us or email us for a tailored quote from our helpful team
How far do you travel?
Our bus is a good runner so we are open minded to where events are located, please just ask. Obviously the further away the venue, the higher the cost.
What space / access is required for the bus at a venue and what are the bus dimensions?
The bus is around 10 metres long, 3 metres wide and 4.5 metres high. The bus weighs around 10 tonne. Gateways usually need to be about 3.2 metres wide minimum with good access and we will need room to manoeuvre the bus once in. Trees are usually our biggest concern but we will always measure tree branch heights if we feel they will be a problem during a site visit.
Can the bus park on grass?
As a general rule, the bus should not be driven or parked on grass due to its weight (around 10 tonne) and inability to cope well off road. If it’s wet at all or the ground is soft they will get stuck! We usually find there is a track, hard standing or compacted area nearby to park though. Temporary trackways will also be available to hire or buy locally. However, there are exceptions, if the weather is very good and the ground is very dry it is occasionally possible for us to
How old is the bus?
Our bus is 33 years old!
What are the electricity requirements to run the bus?
We would ideally need a power supply and require 1 socket (16amp or 3 pin) to plug the bus into. If there is no electricity supply at your venue we can bring along a generator. The bus uses around 1300 watts once everything is switched on and running.
What are the licencing requirements for the bus?
There will always be someone present who holds a personal licence enabling us to authorise the sale of alcohol, however if the premises where your event is to be held is not licensed then a temporary events licence (TEN) must be applied for. It is a simple online process currently costing £21. You apply to the local council who will authorise this. We would advise you to apply for this as soon as you have confirmed your venue. If your booking is a late booking, you must allow at least 10 clear working days before the day of the event (excluding weekends and bank holidays) for your TEN or we will be unable to attend your event. Please ask us for further details.
What time does the bar close?
When you apply for you temporary events notice you will fill in the time you would like the bar to close and the council will agree or disagree. We are happy to close as late as 1am as a general rule.
Can the bus park in a Cul-de-sac or Street?
You would need to check this with your local council.
How long do we have the bus for?
When we confirm a booking, you will be our only booking for the day so the times we are open are your choice. If you require us all day and into the evening this is fine or just a day or evening event are fine also. Please note we will try to get the bus to your venue the day before and on the day of your event we need 4-5 hours for the equipment on the bus to be at the correct temperature.
What is your age verification policy?
If you are lucky enough to look under 25 we reserve the right to refuse the sale of alcohol without a valid form of identity to prove you are over the age of 18.
