Thomas Hardie Commercials to hold Volvo ride and drive event

Thomas Hardie Commercials and Volvo Bus will be holding a special ‘ride and drive’ bus and coach event at their Preston dealership depot on Thursday 1st September.

The one day event, running from 11am-5pm, will present an ideal opportunity for local coach operators in the North West and North Wales area to visit the Preston depot and test drive some of the most popular Volvo Bus vehicles.

A number of vehicles will be available to test drive on the day including B9R and B13R coaches, B5LH hybrid double deck bus and a B7RLE single deck bus. In addition, there will also be detailed information available on all of the latest Volvo soft product offers and an exclusive free prize draw entry for attendees.

Volvo Regional Bus & Coach Sales Managers, Duncan Crosby and Arthur Argyle will be on hand throughout the day to meet operators and discuss the potential benefits of upgrading to the latest Volvo models. “These events are a superb opportunity for customers to come along and test drive the vehicles”, explained Duncan Crosby. “We have some fantastic on-the-day deals available, so it’s well worth a visit”.

Andy Mageer, Group Bus & Coach Development Manager at Thomas Hardie Commercials, commented, “The Volvo ‘ride and drive’ event allows us to meet and engage with operators in the local area, demonstrating some of the excellent vehicles we have available, as well as associated offers, and the opportunity to showcase the excellent sales and service facilities we have here at Preston.
