Dickinson adds another Panther
D & J Dickinson Coaches of Wrangle near Boston, Lincolnshire has added another Plaxton Panther to its ten vehicle fleet. Based on a Volvo B9R Euro5 chassis, the 12.8m coach has 53 Gala recliners, a washroom to the centre of the cabin, hot drinks facilities, fridge and a Bosch entertainment suite which includes a DVD based video system. It will be used on the operator’s own programme of tours and day trips as well as its private hire commitments.
Company founder, Don Dickinson, said, ‘The coach has just returned from its first two tours and we’ve received a great deal of comment from customers on the comfort and finish of the vehicle. Such positive feedback is always good to hear. We get good service from Volvo and we’ve been regular customers of Plaxton since the 1980s. The product is ideally suited to a family business like ours where comfort, reliability and solid value for money is paramount. I can’t speak highly enough of the service and support we receive from the team at Anston, if we have a problem, the solution is only a phone call away.’
The new coach was supplied by Plaxton Coach Sales at Anston.
