The Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, based coach operator now boasts a large fleet of 65 vehicles of which 38 are Volvo. Its latest coach was purchased due to the excellent fuel economy the B11R delivers.
Andrew Pulham, Company Director of Pulhams Coaches, said: “When looking for a new addition for our fleet, we identified the Volvo B11R as the right choice for our requirements. The style and superb fuel economy the B11R delivers won us over.
“In addition to the pleasing aesthetics of the vehicle, we are delighted with the smooth ride and passenger comfort the B11R provides. The coach will be used on a Japanese touring contract throughout the UK, so giving the passengers a pleasant, safe and enjoyable trip is essential to our line of work.
“We would consider purchasing Volvo again once we require a new addition to our fleet. We have been very pleased with the fuel economy we get with all our Volvos and the service we receive from Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Jo Standbridge. Once again, Jo was very helpful and kept in regular contact to ensure the vehicles were performing as well as we had hoped, she is a pleasure to deal with.”
The new B11R with Jonckheere bodywork is a two-axle vehicle and features 53 seats with all the internal features expected by today’s coach operators to deliver a first-rate service to their passengers.
Jo Standbridge, added: “We are extremely pleased to be able to deliver another quality vehicle to Pulham Coaches. We have a great relationship with Andrew and his team, which made for a smooth and speedy process. We look forward to working with Pulham Coaches again in the near future.”
Pulhams Coaches has more than 130 years experience in passenger transport operations and specialises in extended tours, private coach hire and educational tours.
