Basingstoke operator, Mortons Travel, has taken delivery of a new Volvo B8R coach with Sunsundegui SB3 bodywork.

The 72 seat vehicle will be used by the Basingstoke based business to cover a range of school and private hire contracts.

Mortons Managing Director, Adrian Morton, commented: “We are a loyal Volvo customer and over the years we have built up a great relationship with the sales team who have always been highly professional and worked with us to meet our requirements. 

“We have enjoyed excellent fuel consumption and operational performance with all our other Volvos, which make up half our fleet, so we had no hesitation selecting the company again for this latest purchase.

“We required a vehicle with large seating capacity to meet the needs of our growing customer base so we decided the Volvo B8R was the right coach for us.

“In addition, we have a very good working relationship with our local Volvo Truck and Bus dealership in Basingstoke. Good aftersales service and back up is of vital importance to our business, and this was another reason for us choosing Volvo Bus again.”

Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Richard Mann, said: “It is great to deliver this new Volvo B8R to Mortons. They have purchased a number of Volvo vehicles over the years, which is a testament to the positive experiences they have had with us in the past and highlights the faith they have in the quality of our products and services. We are confident they will be very pleased with this new model and look forward to working with them again in future.”

Mortons Travel is an independently owned and run coach hire company which was established in 2004 by Managing Director Adrian Morton. The company has a modern fleet in excess of 30 vehicles, ranging from 16 to 100 seater capacity.
