Furey’s takes another Volvo B11R Jonckheere
Sligo-based coach and bus operator Furey’s Coaches has taken delivery of a new Volvo B11R Euro 6 with Jonckheere bodywork.
“We needed a new 53-seater for our fleet to work on our increasingly busy tour programme in Ireland,” says Aiden Furey, director, Furey’s Coaches. “The savings we are expecting to make with the highly fuel-efficient Euro 6 engine, as well as our previous experience of Volvo quality, operational costs and reliable support network, meant we had no hesitation in selecting Volvo once again.”
The new coach has been specified with 53 seats, a toilet and ZF Ecolife transmission. The vehicle will predominantly be used for touring work, but will also supplement the fleet for day excursions, school contracts and private hire.
“Aftermarket support is also important to us and we have a good working relationship with our local dealership, Murphy Commercials of Galway, which was also a key consideration for us when choosing Volvo Bus,” adds Furey.
A family-owned and run business, Furey’s Coaches was originally established in 1972. The company specialises in coach and mini bus services for corporate travel, golf tours, school trips, sports events and guided tours around Ireland.
