Welcome to Fords of Althorne
Essex based coach & bus hire

Fords Coaches in Essex is a family business with a long coaching history. With the first coach purchased in 1929, we have now been operating coaches for over 80 years. We have our own premises in the village of Althorne, Essex. These incorporate modern workshops, offices, and on-site parking for our 25-strong fleet of coaches and buses.

Our team of engineers ensure that all vehicles are maintained to the highest standards for safety and peace of mind. We're proud of our enviable reputation with VOSA.

We have a friendly team of office staff and drivers. We pride ourselves in providing excellent customer service, which see us with a high level of repeat business and high recommendations. If you require that special service please feel free to contact one of the office team to discuss your individual requirements.

Our vehicles travel the whole of the United Kingdom and the continent for many different companies, groups, schools and private customers. We also operate our own extensive Day Excursion program and Theatre trips. We pride ourselves on a reputation built up over many years, during which many thousands of satisfied customers have travelled with us again and again. Recommendation is our reward.
