Superior quality and safety standards of the product were the key reasons behind Wheadons ordering the two new vehicles. Excellent value for money and a high standard of aftersales care from Volvo were also a deciding factor in the purchase.
Nick Wheadon, Company Manager at Wheadons Travel Group, explained: “We needed a new 53 seater for our fleet to work on a tour programme we have introduced which will operate all year round.
“We own an older 2008 Volvo B12B Euro 5 and it is still a very impressive vehicle, so we had no hesitation in turning to Volvo when we needed to expand our fleet.
“Passenger wellbeing and safety were important in our decision making process and our two new Volvo B11R Euro 6s provide great leg room, offering the traveller of today the highest quality and comfort they now expect.”
“Working with our Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Jo Standbridge, was a pleasure and the process was so seamless that we have already been in touch with Jo regarding another purchase for delivery later this year.
Volvo describes the new Volvo B11R Euro 6 with Jonckheere bodywork as being excellent on fuel consumption and has the added benefit of 53 seats on a 12.6 metre, two axle chassis.
Jo Standbridge added: “The Volvo B11R Euro 6 chassis is very well known for its quality and technical specification for operators as well as providing a high standard of service and comfort. We are delighted that Wheadons Travel Group chose to add these two Volvo’s to their fleet.”
