McEwan Fraser Legal is delighted to bring to the market a unique opportunity to own and operate a well established vintage bus company based in Edinburgh.
The Red Bus has been delivering passengers to weddings and corporate events in and around Edinburgh for over 12 years and has built a strong reputation. Its a family-run business, operating three vintage Routemaster buses with beautifully preserved original interiors dating back to the 1960s. The profitable business would be an excellent addition to an existing wedding transport company, a coach company or a hospitality business that holds large corporate events.
The Red Bus has secured significant bookings into 2022 and 2023 and enquiries continue to grow. The company has many existing corporate contracts and is continually receiving new enquiries from both wedding and business clients looking to add something a bit different. The current owners go above and beyond to give each passenger a memorable experience by including a conductor with a vintage ticket machine, decorating the buses with fresh flowers and ribbons and generally going the extra mile to create a unique experience.
The Red Bus operates from an industrial warehouse which is leased. Accommodation comprises: customer reception area, office, warehouse/storage space, staff WC. The current rent is £7,200 per annum, which is subsidised by letting out surplus space.
