About Southcoast Motor Services

Our restoration group was formed in 1988 with the intention of saving and preserving buses and coaches from a golden age, and after successfully obtaining a licence in 1999 we now operate some of our collection for the pleasure of others.

We take immense pride in what we do and always aim for the highest possible standard when presenting our buses and coaches. All our drivers are hand-picked professionals ensuring safety and service.

Our approach to engineering excellence results in high vehicle availability throughout the busy summer months, during which each vehicle undergoes regular and stringent safety checks. Each autumn, after the operating season has finished, heavy restoration and improvement work is undertaken in our own well equipped workshops. We take particular care to replicate original detail wherever possible and work closely with many small engineering firms to source and manufacture components.

Our commitment to the continued operation and long term security of these vehicles is absolute and our next full restoration projects, a 1952 luxury tour coach and a 1969 dual-purpose bus/coach, are well under way. We very much hope that you will enjoy using our vehicles.
