Ridleys Coaches make a familiar trip back to Volvo11/03/19
Family owned and operated Ridleys Coaches has expanded its fleet with the delivery of a Volvo B11R with Jonckheere bodywork. The new coach will join the large Ridleys fleet, the majority of which are built on the Volvo chassis.
Jordan Ridley, Managing Director for Ridleys Coaches, said: “The reliability and efficiency of our existing coaches was the key determining factor in leading us to specify the Volvo chassis once again.
“We have a number of additional Volvo coaches on order for later this year including two of the stunning new 9900s which we are really looking forward to introducing to our passengers.
“This coach will be used for a number of contracts including schools, UK tours and day trips so fuel efficiency is of the upmost importance for us. From past experience we feel this is guaranteed with the efficient B11R Euro VI engine.
“We keep on returning to Volvo time and time again when searching for new additions to our fleet. The Jonckheere bodywork in combination with the Volvo chassis, was a vehicle we needed to supplement our fleet - it also looks great and is good value for money.”
The JHV2 debuted in 2016 and has been extremely popular with operators and passengers. Jonckheere can build bespoke coaches with a great deal of interior flexibility which has made it a popular choice for customers that have special requirements including sports teams.
Jo Baker, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, said: “Jordan and his team keep returning to Volvo for more and more vehicle orders which is testament to the products we offer. It’s always a pleasure to work with Ridleys and we look forward to delivering the additional coaches throughout 2019”
