First new Scania for Ashcroft Travel
Ashcroft Travel of Widnes has taken delivery of its first new Scania Irizar coach.
Based on Scania's K 360 IB6x2*4 chassis with Scania's 360 horsepower Euro 6 engine and fully automated Opticruise gear-selection system, the vehicle is fitted with Irizar i-Skool bodywork.
Featuring 80 seats with leather
and three-point All Age seatbelts, the vehicle is equipped with climate control air conditioning and a DVD player.
Ashcroft Travel Managing Director Ian Nolan comments, "When we saw the 80-seater Carvers Coaches purchased last year we knew instantly this was the vehicle for us as a large percentage of our work is transporting school children. This new coach can carry two classes of children along with the teachers, so makes it a very
vehicle rather than hiring two coaches.
"We have been extremely happy with the service given by Scania, especially our Account Manager Lee Wale, from the point of him taking the order to the point where we collected the coach we were kept informed every stage of the way, The inclusive Scania two year repair and maintenance contract is an added bonus, especially as our local dealership is only five minutes away from our depot."
