The company based in Wembley, London, purchased the new coach to supplement its existing fleet. The B8R was selected with Sunsundegui bodywork, on the recommendation of Volvo Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager Jo Baker, with Bessway having had positive past experience with Volvos.
Operations Director of Bessway Travel, Simon Payne, explained: “We needed a new coach to meet the needs of our growing customer base.
“The vehicle will be used for school trips, touring and private hire contracts in and around London.
One of the key advantages of the SC5 is that it has a small and compact design, but with 41 seats, it still gives us the passenger and luggage capacity we require. It is highly flexible and equally suitable for driving around narrow lanes or tight city centre streets.
“Working with Jo was a fast, professional, and hassle-free experience. We also have an excellent relationship with, our local Volvo dealership in Hayes, they will ensure the new B8R is kept in top condition for our operations.”
“We purchased a Volvo B11R last year and have enjoyed great fuel efficiency and reliability, so we are confident we will be pleased with this new vehicle.”
Jo Baker added: “It is great to be working with Simon and his team again, and we’re pleased they have returned to Volvo for further fleet expansion. It is good to know that we are helping them to continue to provide the high standards their passengers want and expect, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Bessway Travel is a well respected, family run operator with 30 years experience. The company has a modern fleet of vehicles, ranging from a 12 seater mini bus to 70 seater coaches.
