A word from Tom...

What you say...

I am writing to thank you on behalf of our group for the most wonderful service we have received from yourselves and the company. Everything went according to plan seamlessly, the driver was brilliant with our members – courteous and nothing too much trouble.
As it was my first attempt as Events Co-ordinator I send my personal thanks, as my life was made so much easier with your efficient service. Look forward to speaking again!

Catherine Crouch, January 2014

I just wanted to send a big thank you to the driver of the wedding bus. I gather he was a complete star. Everyone has commented how nice he was and his flexibility was invaluable.

If I (or any friends) ever need any transport again – you’ll always be our first contact.
