First new Volvo B11R for Bessway Travel21/11/16
The company, based in Wembley, London, purchased the new coach to supplement its existing fleet of 16 vehicles. The B11R was selected with Jonckheere bodywork on the recommendation of Volvo Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager, Jo Standbridge, with Bessway having had a positive past experience with Volvo.
Operations Director of Bessway Travel, Simon Payne, explained: “We needed a new coach to meet the needs of our growing business. We required a vehicle in a short time frame and the team at Volvo could provide us with a solution immediately.
“This will be our first Volvo B11R Euro 6 and it will be used for school trips, touring and private hire contracts, so fuel efficiency and low operational costs were an important consideration.”
The new vehicle has 53 passenger seating capacity and many of the high quality interior features expected by today’s seasoned coach traveller. The vehicle also comes with a rear mounted camera.
“Working with Jo was a fast, professional, and hassle free experience. As part of our purchase we have also taken out a maintainance contract with Hayes, our local Volvo dealership, to ensure the B11R is kept in top condition for our customers,” said Simon Payne.
Jo Standbridge, added: “We are confident they will be pleased with this new B11R, and see the benefit from the fuel economy savings it will deliver for their business. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Bessway Travel is a well respected, family run operator with 30 years’ experience. The company has a modern fleet of 17 vehicles, ranging from a 12 seater mini bus to 70 seater coaches.
