From Redline to Ridley’s

We’ve hit the ground running this week with the sale of this Volvo D10M Citybus. In their day these were by far the best deckers available. Being built on Mark IV B10M Chassis and fitted with a ZF 5 Speed Fully Automatic gearbox they could hold their own with any coach in terms of top speed. With a capacity of 87 and 3 Point Belts they just printed money. Even though they still have plenty of life in them the onset of PSVAR compliance has made them less desirable however Jordan Ridley can still see their potential. That, and the fact that he has bought from Redline before meant it was an easy decision to add this beauty to his fleet. Thanks to the team at Redline for ensuring this bus was presented to their usual high standard, and good luck to Jordan and his team at Ridley’s. Hopefully [...]

Due to a requirement for a PSVAR Compliant Coach for Rail Replacement work we have supplied this PSVAR Compliant Volvo B9R Plaxton Elite 53 Seater to M. Pearson Coaches of Chesterfield. The coach started life on the National Express network with Selwyn’s Travel of Runcorn, Cheshire. During it’s time at Selwyn’s it was up-seated to 53 seats. The coach is fitted with Full Leather Trim with 3 Point Seat Belts, Thermo King Air Conditioning, a Magic Floor Wheelchair Lift, and Hanover LED Destination Displays to Front, Side, and Rear. The coach was supplied by Weardale Motor Services and presented in their usual immaculate condition. Hopefully this coach will help Pearson’s on the road to compliance. Thanks to Anthony and his team at Weardale for ensuring the coach was presented in tip top condition both mechanically and cosmetically. We’d all like to wish Liam and his team at M. [...]

Our latest sale sees this tri-axle Setra S416 GT-HD head off for a new life as far detached from it’s previous life as imaginable. Having spent it’s entire life carrying holiday makers all over Europe for Crusader Holidays she’s ramping it up a gear by carrying rock and pop stars. She’s off to be converted into an 8 berth sleep coach for carrying all sorts of showbiz types for Loadout Express from Glasgow. Ricky Morton from Loadout Express chose this vehicle following trouble free experiences with previous Setra, along with it’s pristine condition and relatively low mileage. Mott’s Travel of Aylesbury who own the Crusader brand supplied the coach and she’s seen here in Mott’s premises prior to heading to her new home north of the border. Thanks to Roger Mott and his team for ensuring the vehicle was presented in tip top condition, and the best of [...]

A recent sale has seen this Volvo B12M Jonckheere Mistral head to the Cambridgeshire Fens. It has been purchased by WMS Recruitment in Wisbech to transport workers around local farms to assist with fruit and vegetable picking. As they already operate the B12M Mistral combination this 51 seat executive coach was the ideal vehicle for them. The fact that it has a ZF Automatic Gearbox is an added bonus. The coach was supplied by Pat’s Coaches in Wrexham and was presented to their usual immaculate standard. Thanks to Keith, Mark, and the team at Pat’s for supplying the vehicle. We’d like to wish Shane and Wayne at WMS the best of luck with their new purchase.
