New 9700 for loyal Volvo operator Brent Thomas08/03/17
Welsh based tour operator Brent Thomas Coaches has taken delivery of a new integral Volvo B11R 9700 coach as the latest addition to its 15 strong fleet.
The company is a long established Volvo Bus customer and has once again turned to Volvo for a new 9700 following the purchase of two of the same coaches in 2015. The new vehicle, with a 57 seat passenger capacity, includes all the latest features expected by today’s seasoned coach traveller and will be used on the company’s UK and continental holiday programme.
Neil Grubham, Operations Manager of Brent Thomas Coaches commented: “We’ve worked with Volvo Bus for a long time now and have a strong relationship with both the sales team and the aftermarket service team at Wales & West in Treforest, and it made sense to continue this successful relationship.
“As ever it was important to us to purchase the best possible quality coach and the Volvo 9700 is head and shoulders above its competitors. We have been delighted with the 9700s we have been running, with impressive fuel efficiency as well as high specification and quality finish. It was an easy decision to make a repeat purchase as our tour programme expands.”
Jo Standbridge, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, added: “Brent Thomas Coaches has been a loyal Volvo customer for many years and we’re pleased that they’ve gone for the 9700 again this time.
“We look forward to continuing our long standing relationship with them for many years to come and will work hard to remain their manufacturer and service provider of choice.”
Brent Thomas Coaches has been established for more than 25 years and continues to be a family owned and operated company.
