The vehicle was specified with a passenger capacity of 53 and will be used for touring work around the UK, private hire and school contracts.

Rob Pike, Director of family owned and operated Pikes Coaches, said: “We have a fleet or more than 30 vehicles and nearly half of them are Volvo. When looking for a new addition to our fleet, the reliability and efficiency of our existing Volvo vehicles was once again the key determining factor in specifying them again.

“The B11R JHV2 fits our business needs and has served us well over the past few years. The vehicle is finished to a high quality and represents excellent value for money.”

Rob Pike added: “We also value the excellent aftersales support we receive from MC Truck & Bus in Southampton, who have been a partner of ours for many years, seeing to all our external service requirements.  We believe in only using genuine Volvo spare parts as and when they are required for installation on our vehicles which MC Truck & Bus pride themselves on.”

Sam Prothero, Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager, said: “Pikes Coaches has been an excellent customer of ours for a number of years now, moving from pre-owned Volvos to more recently the order of new B11Rs’. We look forward to continuing our great working relationship with Rob and his team in the future.”
