Is a friend indeed as Yelloway Coaches jump to the rescue…. (with a little help from our friends at Odyssey Coach Sales)
On Friday afternoon Ceri Taylor of Applegates Coaches in Gloucestershire found himself in a position no coach operator wants to be in…. he was one double deck bus short for his contracts. However, lurking in the wings was a soon to become friend from Yelloway Coaches.
Ceri then obviously needed a replacement quickly……and by the Monday afternoon he was the new owner of our (M18 YEL above) Volvo B7TL Alexander ALX400 79 Seat Belted Decker!
This was aided by our friends at Odyssey Coach Sales and especially Darren and our team at Yelloway Coaches Ltd. Over the weekend they had arranged to meet Ceri at Hilton Park Services on the M6 to speed up delivery and get Ceri and his team at Applegates Coaches back on the road without further delay.
Following a quick PMI (Periodic Maintenance Inspection), the Volvo was out on Tuesday morning helping get Gloucestershire’s students to school, job done!
Whilst no coach operator wants to be in this position it’s important to remember that these things can happen to anyone and here at Yelloway Coaches we will always try our best to help a fellow coach operator in need. You can also always count on the team at Odyssey Coach Sales with over 25 years experience who will do their best to get operators back on the road as quickly as possible. A special thank you goes to Darren from Odyssey Coach Sales and our very own Mark Brook and team here at Yelloway Coaches for pulling out all the stops to help ensure a fellow coach operator received assistance in a time of need.
NOW…. please DON’T despair as we still have this little beauty in our fleet for hire. It is of course our Alexander Dennis Double Deck Bus, with 87 seats and of course all three point belted!! PLUS 6 Standees PLUS 1 Wheelchair if you need to transport a total of 93 peeps!!
