About Us

Provider of Premium Nightliners, Splitter Vans and Touring Services to the Music, tv/film production, performing arts  and sports industries

When we started Vans for Bands Ltd in 2006, we saw a gap in the market: the industry had plenty of companies with expertise in touring, and others who understood the vehicle and transport sector. Why, we asked, should they be mutually exclusive?

With a fleet of over 50 vehicles we are one of the largest transport providers to the music industry in Europe.

When it comes to touring, we know our business

We know that touring artists rightfully expect uncompromised standards of service, comfort, reliability and safety which is what we deliver to more than a thousand acts every year.

Our specialist team has decades of collective touring experience at all levels of the industry – we’ve more or less been everywhere, done everything, and encountered most problems at least once, so if you have an issue or need advice one of us will be able to help. 

When it comes to vehicles, we know our business

VFB has its own purpose-built maintenance workshop, housed at our depot in Oxford. All of our nightliners, sleeper buses, splitter vans and trailers go through regimented mechanical and safety checks prior to every hire. We don’t spare any expense to ensure our vehicles are as good as they can possibly be. 

We strive to be the best, and don’t compromise on our standards – if you want a transport solution you can rely on and a team who know what they’re doing, then get in touch.
