Specialist Buses

Kiwi Bus Builders has built many specialist vehicles over the years specially designed to suit the conditions the vehicle will be operating in, such as beaches where they would require extra sealing to protect from corrosion, off-road, narrow roads or bush tracks etc.

Kiwi Bus Builders has built many vehicles for the 90 Mile Beach excursions, for Winery Tours, Tourism Centres like Hobbiton and even a tramping bus which includes seats that turn into beds. Kiwi Bus Builders works with the customer to design and build the vehicle that specifically suits their every need.

Mobile Library Vehicles

Kiwi Bus Builders have manufactured Library Buses for many centres across New Zealand, the most recent has been a replacement MAN to the bus we built for Tauranga City Council over 20 years ago. It was still going well but was in need of a lot of love and attention, hence their excitement to receive a brand new and improved bus. 

Some Mobile Libraries are not only a place to hold books but also a learning centre so Kiwi Bus Builders has had to work closely with the various Libraries to try and achieve as much of the new technology as the vehicle allows.
