New Volvo B8R Sunsundegui for Mortons Travel

Hampshire coach hire company Mortons Travel has taken delivery of a new Volvo B8R coach with Sunsundegui SB3 bodywork as part of a fleet expansion. The 72-seat vehicle will be used by the Basingstoke-based business on a range of school and private hire contracts.

“We are a loyal Volvo customer and over the years we have built up a great relationship with the sales team who have always been highly professional and worked with us to meet our requirements,” says Mortons managing director Adrian Morton. “We have enjoyed excellent fuel consumption and operational performance with all our other Volvos, which make up half our fleet, so we had no hesitation selecting the company again for this latest purchase.

“We required a vehicle with large seating capacity to meet the needs of our growing customer base so we decided the Volvo B8R was the right coach for us.

“In addition, we have a very good working relationship with our local Volvo Truck and Bus dealership in Basingstoke. Good aftersales service and back up is of vital importance to our business, and this was another reason for us choosing Volvo Bus again.”

Mortons Travel is an independently-owned coach hire company which was established in 2004 by Adrian Morton. The company has a modern fleet of more than 30 vehicles, ranging from 16- to 100-seat capacity.
