We are a new company for coach operators, rail networks, private sectors and other organisations along with the general public looking for, or wishing to hire a coach for any event, function, holiday, or day trip.
Are you looking to hire a coach?
You can register for free!
Once registered, place the details of the job on our Bid-A-Job or 70/30 Empty Legs features, then sit back and wait for coach operators to bid for your business, or they may contact you directly.
We have features for coach operators which can help your company save money, make money, or even help in times of crisis.
With our 70/30 Empty Legs feature we can help you turn empty one-way trips into hard cash. As well as advertising, your empty legs to maximise your profits, you may also post any jobs you are unable to cover on our Bid-A-Job feature, other operators may see them and possibly bid for and so increasing your profits yet again.
In these days when every penny counts our aim is to make you money.
70/30 Empty Legs.
Many bookings require coaches to travel to or from pick-ups and destinations empty. Whilst these vehicles are travelling empty (70/30 Empty Legs) allows you access to jobs from other companies or from customers directly.
For example, if you are sending a coach from Southampton to Edinburgh and travelling empty in either direction. You may find a job going from Oxford to Manchester or vice versa you could take advantage of your empty leg benefitting both companies financially. The operator posting the job could earn 30% and the operator doing the job could earn 70% which will leave a coach and driver free, this will allow an operator to take on other work.
Fuel costs and maybe even a hotel for your driver could be covered with this arrangement. It is up to the individual operators to agree the final price, because as an operator you will know approximately the costs of the job involved.
One 70/30 Empty Legs job could even pay your membership fee once free membership as ended.
Quite simply, operators and private groups can post jobs on our site where operators can view and place their bid for the job.
Coach operators will be able to advertise future jobs in advance on our website.
N.E.R.D. (Need Emergency Relief Driver).
This feature is for operators that have a driver taken ill, or for any other reason that their driver, may be unable to do his/her duties at short notice. It will work on the same idea as our S.O.S. Happy Passengers system, an SMS will be sent to registered driver’s in the area where the coach is situated and the driver will contact the operator directly.
The cost of our Emergency Relief Driver is always the same for the first day. If the hire is for one hour, or fifteen hours, the price is £150 + expenses, (accommodation, meals, return travel costs if not returning to original starting point,) as required.
You the operator, will be able to view the drivers past work experience, before you agree to appoint the driver.
If the driver is required for more than one day’s work, then negotiations will be made between the operator and the driver.
The cost of our Emergency Relief Driver, may seem expensive, but, it will ensure that you get a quick response from drivers. You will be able to post on our driver's page, jobs that you need covering in the near future, the costs of these jobs will be negotiated, between the operator and the driver.
One Stop Coach Solutions are looking for drivers, with UK and European experience to enrol as a N.E.R.D. (Need Emergency Relief Driver).
This is how our system will work. Once you, the driver has registered. If a coach operator requires a driver at short notice, (because their driver is unable to drive, due to sickness, accident, or for any other reason) the operator, will send details to our site and an SMS, will be sent to drivers in the area, where the driver is required. We at One Stop Coach Solutions will monitor the situation and if a driver is not found, within a reasonable space of time, then we will make enquiries further afield until we locate an available driver. They will then make contact with the coach operator.
You will be required, if asked, to supply references and previous driving history, for the operator.
The cost of the first day’s driver hire is £150.00 + expenses (overnight accommodation, meals, return travel cost if not returning to original starting point and car parking if required) The price is the same even if the job is for one hour, or fifteen hours. So for a 15 hour day you will be earning £10.00 an hour and for a 10 hour day you will be earning £15.00 an hour.
If you are required for more than one day’s cover, then it is up to the driver and operator, to negotiate the extra cost.
Coach operators will be able to advertise future jobs in advance on our website. As a member you will be able to apply for the work, as and when it suits the individual driver. The cost of driver membership is £35.00 for 12 months.
