The new 53 seater Volvo B11R, which is with Jonckheere JHV2 bodywork, is set to be used for tours of Ireland and Europe, school transport, and private hire. The coach will fulfil a critical role in O’Sullivans’ fleet, which already consists largely of Volvo vehicles.
Ger O’Sullivan, Director of O’Sullivans, reiterated his faith in the Volvo product. Impressed with the appearance and performance of previous Volvo Jonckheere bodied vehicles, he was assured that this latest acquisition would be a “perfect fit” for his operation.
He said: “We’ve been purchasing Volvo coaches for more than 15 years. We bought our last B11R back in 2017, and one in 2015 before that, both of which our drivers and customers loved - so we had no hesitation going for another this time.”
Coach Sales Manager for Volvo, Dave Porter, highlighted the strength of the relationship - commenting: “We are pleased to supply O’Sullivans with yet another new Volvo B11R coach.
“O’Sullivans is an established Volvo customer and our relationship with them goes from strength to strength. We have no doubt that their new coach will impress the customers and passengers alike and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Ger O’Sullivan added: “We are confident that the B11R JHV2 is the coach for us. Not only does it look the part, we’re sure it will meet all our fuel economy needs and be a great fit for our operation.”
O’Sullivan’s Coach Hire is a long standing, family run coach and mini-coach hire company in Cork, Ireland. The company operates coach tours of Ireland as well as air, rail and sea port transfers, wedding transfers and sports team travel.
