Hollinshead Coaches bolsters fleet with another Volvo purchase11/10/19
Based in Stoke-on-Trent, family owned Hollinshead Coaches has returned to Volvo to make a purchase of an integral B11R 9900 premium coach.
The new 53-seater, which radiates style, elegance and safety, joins Hollinshead Coaches’ fleet of 14 vehicles made up entirely from Volvo vehicles. The business has already begun to use the premium vehicle to service its wide range of tours and its increasing blue-chip client base.
Highly acclaimed for its luxury feel and powerful stance, the Volvo 9900 boasts the highest comfort and style designed to provide the smoothest driving experience. The vehicle’s premium feel extends to its interior which showcases finely crafted details and trim, comfortable seats, perfect climate and an overall relaxing ambience providing the ideal vehicle for Hollinshead Coaches range of tour services.
Steve Haydon, Director at Hollinshead Coaches discussed the business’ decision to purchase yet another Volvo vehicle. He said: “We have been loyal Volvo customers for more than 25 years now and have been incredibly impressed by the levels of service and quality of vehicles they offer. The 53-seater with an onboard toilet has become our standard sized touring coach and the high spec that the 9900 and its predecessor the 9700 have, made them perfect for what we needed.
The sophisticated styling of the 9900 has leant itself to becoming one of the most eye-catching vehicles on the road and was key to Hollinshead Coaches’ purchase decision. The design of the unique window line underscores the luxurious impression while its rounded front gives the coach a friendly yet confident face, with excellent aerodynamics.
Steve added: “We have an excellent relationship with the Volvo coach sales team, and I believe they always look after us well, which is why we have been so loyal over the years. We also have excellent relationships with our local dealer and the front-line technicians who come out to us have been excellent.”
Phil Hudson, Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager at Volvo Buses, said: “Hollinshead Coaches has been a longstanding customer of ours for several years and it has been a privilege to watch their fleet grow with an increasing number of Volvo vehicles.
“I am confident that the 9900 will help give their drivers and passengers a premium experience and will definitely meet their expectations in terms of operational performance, aesthetic appearance and a smooth ride.”
Hollinshead Coaches specialises in an array of services including private hire, school transport, corporate events, wedding services and much more. The business also offers its own holiday programme and day excursions. Since its foundation in 1926, the business has grown its fleet significantly and today includes a wide range of vehicles from 29 to 57 seats, including top of the range executive coaches.
