COMFORT AND SAFETY
Hatts operate a modern fleet with well-trained drivers, all have a CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) and most have passed or in training for advanced driver status. Our touring private hire coaches are all air-conditioned with air suspension, reclining seats and double glazing. In addition, all executive coaches have WC washroom, TV, DVD, Radio CD, hot water boiler and fridge. All coaches in the fleet are fitted with seat belts.
The Companies maintenance programme is rigorous with service and safety inspections carried out every eight weeks or 10,000 Kms. Hatts meets all UK and EU transport standards and is held in high regard with its customer base.
Hatts Coaches are very proud to be a member of BUSK (Belt up School Kids). This is a simply structured scheme allowing a reputable operator to visually demonstrate to everyone that they are safety compliant. The 'Benchmark' rating is unique because it is the first time in the history of minibus and coach operation that a star rating system has been available in the UK and transport companies want to prove to the public that they care about passenger safety by displaying the awarded green stars on their fleet (Hatts feel very honoured to have received a 6 star rating! this award was given to us on 22nd January, 2013 by Pat Harris who is the director of BUSK, the child transport safety consultancy).
A Benchmark Company has been checked out by BUSK before they are accepted onto the scheme and will be policed for as long as they remain members. About a year ago BUSK launched 'Simply Safe', with the aim of changing the way schools hired transport for school trips. Teachers etc. have then been offered free legal advice on how to fulfill their legal obligations to pupils by providing them with safe travel.
