The Towcester, Northamptonshire operator, boasts an extensive customer base which covers both business and private hire, and took the decision to purchase a new 53 seater to meet its expanding business requirements.
Jon Sewell, Transport Manager for SMS X Trav, said: “We needed a coach with a larger seating capacity to handle our increasing UK tour work that looked smart and sleek while offering all of the high specification features expected by today’s seasoned coach traveller. We are not only pleased with the operational performance of our new vehicle, but also the aesthetic appearance of the Sunsundegui SC7 bodywork, the Volvo driveline specification is second to none and the build quality is also excellent.
“Aftermarket service and support was also an important consideration for us, we have very good relationships with Volvo in Coventry and Volvo Truck & Bus Milton Keynes and this also played a major part in our decision making process.
“Working with Jo Standbridge, our Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, was as good as always throughout the whole purchasing process right through to delivery.”
Jo Standbridge added: “Increasingly we’re receiving strong repeat business from operators the length and breadth of the UK who’ve had previous good experience of Volvo and the B11R in particular is proving its paces time and time again. We’re pleased that SMS X Trav has chosen Volvo again to meet their increasing requirements.”
SMS X Trav has been established for more than 20 years and prides itself on a high level of customer service to business and private customers in and around Northampton and Milton Keynes.
