“Our business is expanding and our programme features various customers with a need for high capacity coaches,” explained Fernhill Managing Director, Richard Holgate. “We needed a quality vehicle that could meet the volume of our numerous school contracts where safety is of paramount importance.”

Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Richard Mann, said: “We are delighted to supply Fernhill with a new Volvo B8R coach.

“With 72 seats, the Volvo B8R Euro 6 with the new Sunsundegui SB3 body enters the high capacity market sector as a true premium quality contender.”

Volvo describes the B8R as an outstanding choice for school contract work with two plus three seating configuration, which allows operators to carry the younger generation passengers efficiently as well as in comfort and safety.

Richard Holgate added: “Richard Mann was, as always, excellent to deal with throughout the whole negotiation process and knowledgeable in recommending the B8R SB3 which exactly suits our requirements.

“Volvo Bus is responsive and professional and you have the reassurance of their countrywide dealer network. The vehicle is already hard at work and although it’s early days, the fuel consumption performance so far has been a very pleasant surprise.

Fernhill is a family run business based in Berkshire with more than 35 years’ experience. The company operates a fleet of modern coaches which undertake a variety of work from school contracts to private and corporate hire.
