Our Heritage Bus

With over 90 years’ experience in the coach hire business, our aim is to provide you and your guests with that something extra for your special day in and around Guildford or Farnham. Our lovingly restored, 44 seater, AEC Reliance ‘Heritage Bus’ does just that and is available for hire from 1st March until the 30th October.

Our fully qualified drivers have a passion for the era of public transport that our bus symbolises and the nostalgia evoked by the extra special vintage bus experience. Please bear in mind that our lovely bus is over 60 years old, doesn’t go on motorways or travel at night! Other than that, she’ll be just the job for your special day so be prepared to be transported into a bygone age. Don’t miss the bus, book early and make sure you reserve our Heritage Bus in good time for your chosen day.

OVER 60 YEARS OLD AND STILL GOING STRONG!

Bought in 1956 for the princely sum of £4,354, 200APB was one of a pair of forty-four seat Burlingham-bodied AEC Reliance buses delivered to Safeguard. The buses were used on local routes in Guildford before being sold to Safeway Bus Services in Somerset in 1962.

In January 2002 we re-acquired 200APB and our expert workshop team restored the bus to its original condition, which included a complete upholstery re-fit to ensure the continuing comfort of future passengers!

The Heritage Bus is based at our Guildford depot and is a familiar sight at weddings and special events in Surrey and Hampshire, as well as at the various bus events and enthusiasts days that we invariably attend!

A Few Words from

Our Heritage Bus customers

We have used your lovely Heritage Bus for both of our daughter’s prom nights (7 years apart). Booking was easy and your driver was kind, obliging and friendly. Both groups thoroughly enjoyed the ride and heads turned for their arrival. The Heritage Bus makes a lovely backdrop for pre-prom photos!
We had a great day thank you and the Heritage Bus was a big hit with the guests. Everyone reported that drivers Nigel and Steve were very friendly and helpful. All the way through from initial booking, to visiting the garage and the way things ran on the day, everyone I’ve dealt with at Safeguard has been friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and dependable. I am very happy with the service I received.
We hired a beautiful heritage bus to transport wedding guests to the church and back to the reception venue. Complete with ribbon on the front the bus really added to the day and helped a HUGE amount with parking at the church. Thank you so much Safeguard
