Now upseated to 49 seats with an option to go to 51 this Volvo B12M Jonckheere Mistral still retains it’s cream leather interior from it’s touring days which is still in very good order after 16 years. Formerly with Viking Travel of Heywood, Greater Manchester who kept it in pristine condition it was deliver to Oxford Services where it was collected by Darren Brown, Managing Director of Crawley Luxury who will be using it on a variety of work in their local area. Thanks go to Adam Warburton and the team at Viking for kindly agreeing to deliver the coach down to Oxford. 

We have recently supplied this Mini Pointer Dart to A to B Travel Ltd of Luton, Beds. They were in need of a service bus of a certain size for a private car park shuttle at Luton Airport and we just happened to have one for sale. The plan is to reduce the seating capacity to 23 and add some additional baggage space. Hopefully, this’ll give this little bus a nice easy semi-retirement. The little bus was sourced from GB Coaches in Manchester and delivered by Mansfield Recovery to Luton. Thanks to Rachel Rees-Smith at A to B for her custom, Dave Bolton and his team at GB Coaches for MOT testing the bus prior to sale, and to Mansfield’s for their assistance in delivering the bus.

One of our latest sales has seen two more Tyrer’s Tridents head south to Essex and a new life with Tendring Travel near Colchester. Once again these immaculate deckers have served an immediate need for another operator who has been searching for the right deckers for a while now, only to be disappointed with what he’s found. Pictured at Tyrer’s with their two new purchases are Mark Bone, proprietor of Tendring Travel, along with his Dad Ron. What this does mean though is that there’s now only one of these belted Tridents left. Form an orderly queue!

We recently delivered this Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart to it’s new home in Hartlepool to start an easy life as site transport with Able UK Ltd. Able UK specialise in demolition, decommissioning and recycling of marine structures and vessels including frigates and aircraft carriers. The little bus will be used to transport staff around Able’s large site at Seaton Port in Teesside. The vehicle was sourced from GB Coaches of Levenshulme, Manchester and transported to it’s new home by Manchester Breakdown Services. Thanks go to the staff at both companies for their assistance in helping this sale go through smoothly.
