Fixed Price Schedules

At CCM we understand that you need to keep financial controls around your vehicle costs. That’s why we offer fixed prices for all routine and scheduled work, with account facilities for schools, colleges, councils, businesses and charities.

Our team will work with you to identify the correct schedules for each vehicle and pre-agree a work package and price levels.

For unforeseen works, we will agree on an auto authority budget that allows us to safely maintain your vehicle, with fast turnaround repair processes and limited vehicle downtime.

What the DVSA Say

At CCM we are often asked if we are authorised to test minibuses. Well, we are glad to say yes.

Whilst there is some confusion about the need for PSV driver licences, the guidance from DVSA is actually very clear when it comes to the MOT test for these vehicles. Duly, during a recent training session, we asked our local DVSA Regional Manager if he could clarify, he directed us to the test class information contained within the MOT Testing Guide.

First, let us look at a passenger carrying vehicle with 9 – 12 seats, these are classified as Class 4 for MOT testing Purposes.

Now let’s look at the more common larger minibus, with 13 or more passenger seats, which are classed as Class 5 for MOT testing purposes.

CCM operates two Class 5 MOT testing sites based at our Cranleigh and Gatwick depots.

At these sites, we can offer MOT testing, all service and repair and routine checks with full backup and support, coupled with fast turnaround times.

Our Head Office site in Ewhurst also caters for repair and safety checks.
