Our History

BASE Coach Sales was established as a sister company to our coach business ‘Holmeswood Coaches Ltd’ in the late 1990’s.

Originally intended to assist with the direct disposal of vehicles from our working fleet, it quickly gained a strong reputation for providing fellow coach operators with good honest working stock, complimented by a straight forward approach to doing business. From our operational fleet of over 120 vehicles, as well as customer part exchanges, we always have a significant number of second hand vehicles which can be offered for sale to our extensive client base. 

From 2003 we developed the Marcopolo brand in the UK, selling over 160 new vehicles, before expanding our product range with the Beulas franchise for the UK from 2006 onwards, the TATA Hispano brand in 2011, MOBIpeople in 2014 & Barbi in 2015. In 2020 we are on target to sell our 500th vehicle into the UK market.

We also have a wide variety of chassis options to suit client’s needs. BASE has always been a ‘Hands On’ dealership with the ability to deliver a truly bespoke package of services to match our client’s requirements. Whether it’s a ‘Wheelchair’ specialist or a ‘Corporate Team’ coach, we listen and then aim to exceed expectations.
