Mr Ashall: 'I came up with this fantastic idea. If we convert our school coaches to 70 seaters we can do three jobs with two coaches for the same money. One of the 320s was put through the nearby Belle Vue auction and attracted such attention that he was convinced there was a market to be exploited, though in the event it was a couple of years before he went into it on a bigger scale. The idea was to do them for us but we'd convert one, run it three weeks and someone would want to buy it so we'd do another''..
Over the past few years we have funded a number of tilt tests which have been placed on a 'commercial in confidence' with DVSA/VOSA ensuring that our clients conversions remain competitively priced in the market.
Here at Ashall's Coaches we ensure the conversions we do are to an extremely high standard.. Taking no shortcuts or cutting corners like other companies do such as extending seat leg floor plates instead of moving the floor tracking. We have returning customers year after year.
We have converted well over 150 vehicles from 49/53 seaters to 70+ with customers vehicles promised within a 3 week turnaround. We work hard and closely with the Vehicle Operator Standards Agency (VOSA - Now known as the DVSA) in making sure all requirements are met.. in every fine detail. We convert our customers vehicles as if they were our own... making sure everything is precise.
Whether its just a toilet removal and upseat you would like, or a 70 seat conversion please don't hesitate to contact us. With 70 seat conversions some of the vehicles require a more extensive floor conversion than others to meet VOSA regulations. Examples of the refurbishment levels and the quality we acheive can be seen in the pictures above.
