Don’s of Dunmow gives Volvo Bus the thumbs up29/08/17
Essex coach company, Don’s of Dunmow, has taken delivery of a new Volvo B8R with Sunsundegui bodywork adding to an existing fleet of 25.
Steve Harvey, Director at Don’s of Dunmow, said: “We are pleased to be adding a new Volvo coach to our current fleet. We have had a number of Volvos over the years, and our previous earlier model was a great vehicle, but we were looking for a larger seating capacity and the new B8R SB3 was the perfect solution.
“The bulk of our work is large groups such as schools and private hire, so the capacity of the vehicle was a key factor. The 72 seat coach also comes with three point seat belts as standard, which is extremely important when considering the safety of our passengers. The B8R, with Euro 6 engine, also offers us great fuel efficiency and performance.
“Since our new coach has been on the road, we have received fantastic feedback from both our drivers and customers. In my mind Volvo is a premium product and as a company, we want to offer our passengers the best quality possible.
“Additionally, we have a very good relationship with our Volvo Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager, Richard Mann, and our local Volvo Truck and Bus East Anglia Dealership. Richard was extremely helpful and ensured we selected a coach that is best suited to our company and the needs of our customers. I trust his opinion and had no hesitation in placing this order.”
Richard Mann said: “It is great to be working with a highly respected coach company such as Don’s of Dunmow. They have previously taken Volvo coaches suitable for their private hire work. It is rewarding to hear that Volvo has played a part in the coach operator’s journey towards success.”
