Moving Forward From Lockdown

I hope that you are all well, and have continued to keep your families, your employees and your customers safe during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. We have worked with many of you now for over thirty years, and are fortunate enough to count many of you as friends.

We have been able to retain a small staff, working every Tuesday and Thursday during the lockdown, and will continue in this way until we are able to fully open again.  I hope to be able to bring back most of our staff within three to four weeks, subject to the government’s advice, and return as far as possible to normal trading.

For now, parts are still available from VDL and Vanhool, however delivery may take longer than normal due to safety measures our suppliers have put in place. You can order and collect your parts by phoning our office number 01236 750501. Your call will transfer to a mobile and we can then make arrangements for you to collect them. A similar arrangement has been put in place to allow minor repairs to be carried out.

Everyone involved in the coach business, from tour companies to operators, parts suppliers, dealers and manufacturers, is aware of how badly our industry has been affected. We estimate that it could take two or three years to recover.

The lack of income and value reduction of vehicles and companies will potentially lead to job losses and even the closure of many companies.  I urge you to do your business locally, and try to protect as far as possible, the people and companies that have worked with you over the years.

Stay Well

My Very Best Regards
