O’Connor Coaches of Kilbrittain welcomes a new 53 seat Volvo B11R Sunsundegui SC7 to its fleet.

Sean O’Connor, Director and Owner of O’Connor Coaches, said: “We were on the lookout for a new vehicle to add to our existing fleet and thought the B11R SC7 would be the right fit for us. The coach will be predominantly used for our touring work across England, Wales and Ireland, so comfort and practicality were key selling points.

“Our previous experience with Volvo, made the decision making process simple with three out of five of our current fleet built on a Volvo chassis.  We trust the name, and the coach provides a comfortable ride, contemporary styling and excellent fuel economy, which leaves both drivers and passengers happy.

“In addition, we know we will get consistent support and backup from McCarthy Commercials in Cork.

“Our Coach Sales Manager for Volvo Bus UK & Ireland, David Porter, worked with us during the sales process and had complete understanding of our specific requirements.”

David Porter added: “The B11R has a strong reputation among operators. It offers significant fuel savings and outstanding performance. We are pleased to see more customers placing orders based on recommendations and feedback from other coach operators.

“It’s always rewarding when we provide long standing customers with new additions and at Volvo we always work hard to ensure we meet the expectations of our customers in terms of high standard coach specification.”

Family owned and operated O’Connor Coaches was established in 1989 and has almost 30 years experience of specialising in school contracts, private hire and tours across the UK and Ireland.
