Dekkabus was created by it’s founder Trevor Shore MBE in 2015 when the opportunity arose for him to purchase a vehicle very close to his heart.
Having worked in the passenger transport sector since 1975 our founder Director has gained a plethora of experience along his career path spanning five decades within the industry.
At the end of 2015, an already well-loved, preserved bus was put up for sale by it’s group of owners. Not just any vehicle; but a bus that has always had a special place in Trevor’s heart.
In 1975, Trev’ joined Hants & Dorset Motor Services Limited as a Conductor and was regularly allocated to this particular vehicle to undertake his duties. A year later saw Trevor drive this bus out of the blazing Bournemouth Bus Station inferno to safety.
The temptation was too great! Trev’s heart took over his head and a deal was struck to purchase the vehicle from it’s previous owners of the past 36 years.
To justify such a huge investment, the decision was made to bring the vehicle to such a high standard that the vehicle could re-enter active service as a Public Service Vehicle after a retirement of over 36 years stored away in the back of a barn.
After an extensive overhaul and refurbishment costing many, many thousands of pounds, the end result is a vehicle presented to the highest finish, maintained with pride and passion and driven by only the chosen few.
Be it a short journey to the Church or a day at the Races, we really do want you to share the journey with us!
2018 has been a truly amazing year for Dekkabus. So much so, that the company has expanded and diversified into new and exciting work types. This has given us the opportunity to invest in more vehicles and refurbish them to an even higher specification for our customers’ needs.
The Board has been strengthened by the addition of three new Directors and their focus is on:
We’re really excited about the future for Dekkabus – we hope that you are too!
