Welcome to Crest Coaches Limited

a family run business, established in 1988

Founded by Jerry and Iris O’Brien in East Ham, London, and now based in Rochford, Essex, Crest Coaches Limited are a family-run business with over 35 years of experience in the coach hire industry. In addition to private hire work, we have operated a coach service to the Westcliff Grammar Schools since 2011, and are proud of our reputation for being punctual, trustworthy and reliable.

We operate a fleet of modern, eco friendly Mercedes Benz coaches, featuring reclining seats and climate control as standard. All vehicles are fitted with onboard CCTV and GPS, for real time tracking. 

Our vehicles undergo rigorous six weekly VOSA inspections, in addition to general maintenance checks.

Throughout the year we provide transport for school trips, music and county sport events, for many of the local schools in Southend and surrounding areas.

In January 2011, we started a private coach service for children attending the Westcliff Grammar Schools and Thomas More High School. Our coach service is extremely popular, and we currently operate five coaches covering nine pick up points between Gants Hill and Gallows Corner.  

Our drivers are highly trained professionals, who take pride in their work. They are all DBS checked, and receive training in both Safe Guarding and First Aid.
