Welcome to the website of Belle Vue Manchester's PCV Maintenace and Garage Services. Belle Vue operate a comprehensive maintenance program to ensure our fleet are kept in a safe and efficient conditon at all times.
We operate the following procedures to ensure our Vehicle Maintenance is professional and meets legislation governed by VOSA (Vehicle Operating Standards Agency):
Daily Walk Round Vehicle Checks (One by the driver before using the vehicle and one by our maintenance at 6am every morning).
28 Day Vehicle Inspection Checks
Annual MOT Testing with a very high pass rate.
Tachograph Assessments on a weekly basis and then we have them sent off to an outside contractor (TTS) for professional analysis.
Acci Cameras Kits are installed on board and are checked on the WRC and on a weekly basis.
Daily Spot Checks on the Fleet
Quality Control Checks every evening after the fleet is valeted and parked up.
A ridgid paperwork policy that records all vehicle faults and their rectifications.
Our Maintenance Philosophy:

Carrying out Risk Assements on a regualr basis.

Our Maintenance Department is managed by our Maintenance Director - Mr Ken Walsh.
Ken started with the company in September 2001 and since his time with the business we believe he is without doubt - 'the best in the business.' Ken has the same attitude as the Directors, 'In life there are no problems - only challenges and there is nothing we cannot achieve!' If there is a more passionate and dedicated engineer in the coach industry we have yet to meet him! Our maintenance department has grown considerably since Ken joined the company. We currently have a young team of engineers who are passionate and dedicated and they strive to be the best. These chaps are a true reflection of the character of Ken and they ensure our fleet is running to speed at all times. Ken has a dedicated agenda in his duties with Belle Vue but in what little spare time he has off, he takes great pleasure in renovating old vehicles. These are mainly old lorrys and coaches that have been sat in some back yard of the previous owners for decades, almost century's! Once Ken (and his brother Ray) get hold of these vehicles they renovate them in a matter of weeks! They strip the wrecks down to the chassis and start to rebuild them from the frame up - in immaculate condition. You must understand that no mega expensive parts are sourced, what parts they cannot source competitively they make! - No kidding! There is no job that Ken Walsh cannot do. Maintaining and operating coaches in no challenge at all to Ken on reflction of the projects he has carried out with his brother Ray. They operate under 'K&R Walsh Brothers' and are well known within the Industry and with all Vehicle Enthusiasts.
