The company is a long established Volvo Bus customer and took the decision to go for the integral 9700 due to its high specification and quality finish. Purchased for use on the company’s own UK and continental holiday programme, the new vehicles each have seating for 57 passengers and include all the latest features expected by today’s seasoned coach traveller.
Brent Thomas of Brent Thomas Coaches commented: “We’ve worked with Volvo Bus for a long time now and have a strong relationship with both the sales team and the aftermarket service team at Wales & West in Treforest, and it made sense to continue with this successful relationship.
“As ever it was important to us to purchase the best possible quality coaches and the Volvo 9700 is far superior to anything else we’ve looked at. Fuel efficiency was also an important consideration for us and this was another reason for our selecting these two new coaches which we are delighted with.”
Jo Standbridge, Volvo Bus Regional Sales Manager, added: “Brent Thomas Coaches has been a loyal Volvo customer for many years and we’re pleased that they’ve gone for the integral Volvo 9700 this time.
“We look forward to continuing our long standing relationship with them for many years to come and will work hard to remain their manufacturer and service provider of choice.”
Brent Thomas Coaches has been established for more than 25 years and continues to be a family owned and operated company.
