Why choose Minis to Midis for your next Mini bus, Mini Coach, Midi Coach, based on Mercedes, Sprinter, Iveco or Otokar.......

Minis to Midis was founded in 2004 by Director Alan White, who now has over 40 years’ experience in the UK bus and coach industry. Alan started as a bus driver with Leon Motors of Finningley near Doncaster back in 1975 moving over to coach driving later that year. He remembers his first ‘solo excursion’, an afternoon trip to Buxton in the Peak District driving a 52 seat Bedford VAL with Duple Bella Venturer bodywork. Eventually graduating to full day tours he describes his views at the time as “the best job he’d ever had, but also the worst paid.” For a number of years it became a useful part time occupation whilst Alan worked in tractor component manufacture as Doncaster worked its way through the last years of heavy engineering in the town.

A full time return to the bus and coach industry came with a transport manager opportunity with Coachcraft of Doncaster who were also a mini coach converter. This led into sales, a move to the larger Europa Coaches sales operation, part of the C.G. Whittaker Group and when the parent group failed in 1991 the establishment of Autobus Classique Ltd with former Europa colleagues at Hellaby, near Rotherham. Autobus manufactured conversions and later the award winning Nouvelle midi coach.

Upon Autobus being acquired by the Optare Group in 1996, Alan functioned alongside Chris Gee as National Sales Manager in Optare CoachSales at Optare’s new site at Hellaby until Chris took up a new role back in Leeds. Becoming CoachSales Director Alan oversaw the importation of coachbuilt products from Ferqui in Spain up to leaving Optare in 2004 to establish Minis to Midis.

Over the past 12 years Minis to Midis has supplied Optare, Ferqui, Esker, Unvi and Caetano products and since 2012 from Noones the Turas range and Otokar Navigo T as agent for Great Britain.

Minis to Midis is very much a family concern that has grown significantly in 2016 with additional appointments being made in administration, parts, operations and service.

“Having experienced the operating and manufacturing sides as well as sales allows you to have a broader appreciation of people and the challenges they face. This is a people industry where sincerity is appreciated. Occasionally vehicles have problems but I have never turned my back on anybody. Reputation is everything. If you are thinking of buying a new or pre-owned Mercedes mini bus, mini coach or midi coach, or any other make, we would like to talk to you.”
