With our transport expertise you can trust us to take care of the whole complex logistical organisation of your event so you can get on with training and physical preparation.
Most of the laws applicable to a 3 Peaks Challenge relate to the transport and are imposed for the safety of everyone. Some companies make every effort to ‘beat’ the law but The 3 Peaks Mini Bus Hire is proud to both agree and comply fully with it; because we want to be as safe as possible.
Transporting teams the 480-mile journey between mountains as quickly as possible is stressful on the driver. VOSA have given legislation on journeys of this type. For example, driver breaks must be taken, after driving for 4.5 hours a brake of 45 minutes and changes are strategically integrated into every 24 hour challenge and the typical itineraries below have accounted for these.
Whoever you choose to provide your transport, even it may be yourself driving, must not underestimate the importance of transport and make sure you are as safe as possible at all times. Ask your transport provider or appointed driver for their clear, written intentions of how they will both maximise safety and comply with the law.
