Minibuses have a strict weight limit and very little room for baggage.

 

The weight of a minibus is 2400kg, which leaves a max payload of 1100kg. 

 

Example: 15 persons x 75 kg (12 stone) = 1125 kg plus 2400kg = OVERWEIGHT

Moreover, if stopped by POLICE/DVSA this could mean fines, points or other for the driver.
