Wirral-based Carvers Coaches has taken delivery of its latest three Scania vehicles. A key aspect of this important purchase for the company has been Scania’s ability to supply vehicles with PSVAR conversions to be carried out at a later date built into the purchase price.
“Despite the ongoing effects of coronavirus, we believe it is essential to continue investing in quality vehicles to protect our brand image and the future of the business,” says Carvers Coaches proprietor Mark Carver. “The two-year repair and maintenance will be carried out by Scania Ellesmere Port, where Mark Urmston and his team have always given us excellent levels of service. This, together with the fact that Scania were able to include future PSVAR conversions in the upfront purchase price was a deal clincher.
One of the three Scania coaches supplied to Carvers Coaches is a 13.9m 6×2 Scania Touring based on Scania’s K 410 EB chassis with 59-seats with leather headpad, piping, three-point seatbelts and seat back tables. The vehicle has a centre sunken toilet, a Frenzel drinks unit, DVD player with two monitors, climate control air conditioning, and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.
The second coach is a 12.1m 4×2 Scania Touring based on the Scania K 360 IB chassis with 51 seats, and the third is a 12.8m 4×2 Scania Interlink based on the Scania K 410 EB chassis with 53 half leather-trimmed seats.
Based in Ellesmere Port, Carvers Coaches began trading in 2003 and now has a 15-strong fleet.
