Company Profile:

Shaws of Maxey are a third generation, family owned and managed coach company. We’ve been on the road since 1922 and school transport, corporate hire and away days has always been an important part of our business. Our location, close to Market Deeping, Bourne, Stamford, Peterborough and Spalding means that we are ideally placed for schools in several local authorities, and our proximity to the A1 and our Midlands location means we can easily reach many parts of the country.

We welcome all enquiries from a short local trip to a full day outing and residential stays (in the UK and abroad). We are able to offer a FREE planning and booking service for hotel accommodation, ferry crossings and visitor attractions with same day quotations for most enquiries. Whatever your requirements, you can be sure that your booking will be personally looked after with attention to detail and safety at the fore.
