Hi Jade,

I just want to pass on our huge thanks to Belle Vue Coach hire and specifically to your driver, Derek Sumner, for our successful trip down to the London Aquatics Park this weekend.

Right from the beginning of my first enquiry, whoever I spoke to at your office, nothing was too much trouble and you have all been really helpful.

We would like to say thank you also for assigning Derek Sumner as our driver. Derek went above and beyond to make our journey/trip as stress free as possible. He was extremely professional in keeping us updated with any traffic or parking issues, he consistently kept in touch with his whereabouts whilst waiting for the club to meet him. Please be assured we will have no hesitation in requesting the services of Belle Vue Coach Hire again and when we do contact you we will be putting in a special request for Derek to be our driver!

Thanks again,

Karen Lloyd

Treasurer, Denton Synchronised Swimming Club

I just wanted to say thank you for providing an excellent service yesterday and thank you to the driver for his professionalism and patience. My colleagues were very impressed with the tour and with the coach, hopefully we can use you again. Roland Buckley

Hi Phil 

Mrs G and my daughter Maisie have been on a school trip today from Millbrook Primary in Stalybridge to Chester.

Whenever they go on such a trip they know the first question I ask is what was the transport like, was the coach clean, was it safe, what was the driver like etc etc.

I walked in this evening and before I even had chance to ask they told me they have been on the best coach and the driver Dominic was amazing.

Apparently he had them singing wheels on the bus on the way to Chester and then to the whole class?s delight he had arranged for them to watch The Greatest Showman on the TVs on the way home, this was the highlight of the day according to Maisie.

Dominic was an absolute credit to Belle Vue, he was absolutely first class according to the girls! See you soon!

Kind Regards

Subject: Stockport RUFC Coach Trip to Kendal

I just wanted to send an email to inform you of, and to thank you for, the excellent service that we received on Saturday, in particular from Derek, our driver.

He was very punctual and was fantastic throughout the day! He was very accommodating to our requirements, supported us during the game and ensured that our travel experience with your company was fantastic.

As the 2nd team, we only get one coach trip per season. The trip on Saturday was widely regarded as the best one to date.

Thank you again. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Derek, a top bloke!

Dear Jade Hastie

First of all, I have to say thank you for this lovely time with you by our side. It means a lot for me and my company that every day you did such nice work with exemplary passion!

On a daily basis, you send me the driver details and all the changes that we have. You did this all in an excellent way. If we needed anything, you always gave us a fast reply – this was awesome!

From the first moment I discovered Belle Vue Coaches, it was 100% clear for me that you would all do a great job. I don’t know why, but it was love at first sight! 🙂

We received the feedback, from our client that everything is fine and the drivers did a great job. Please share this feedback with all your guys! I appreciate this time with you, and hope we work together again in the future.

Subject: Reddish Vale School Bus Service

On behalf of our children using the Reddish Vale School Bus we would like to say a huge “THANK YOU” to Miguel. I understand he is moving to another school service. He will be sorely missed. He is a fantastic driver, engaging with our children, making them feel welcome and even teaching them the odd word of Spanish!

He decorated the bus at Christmas time, which they loved. He also played Christmas music whenever they requested (even though after 3 weeks of it, we were both getting a little stir crazy with it!) He is always happy to see the children!

Migual is a real asset to Belle Vue. Could we request that, if the later bus service is discontinued at any time in the future, you re-deploy him back to us? From the Brinnington children of Reddish Vale and myself,

Many thanks! Vikki Vikki Marshall

Dear Phil

Belle Vue?s service was exceptional!

From the great customer service provided by the office team during the initial booking process, all the way to the professionalism of the drivers on our journeys. They were incredibly flexible and happily made changes to their service based on our ever-changing requirements.

Belle Vue also provided high quality vehicles which were driven by well-presented and well-mannered drivers. We will definitely be using Belle Vue Coaches again in our future projects in the Manchester area!

Would you please pass on our thanks to Steve, our Belle Vue driver, for doing an excellent job on Saturday. We did not get chance at the time, with having to sort out all the other stuff.

Again many thanks for organising the transport at such short notice. You are all very professional and we would not hesitate to recommend your company.

By the way we had an amazing day!

Subject: Safe Drive Stay Alive Greater Manchester, March 2019

On behalf of the Safe Drive Stay Alive team, I just wanted to extend a huge thank you to your whole team of drivers and co-ordinators for the exceptional services we received once again from you at this week’s Safe Drive Stay Alive project.

You provided return transport for around 2,600 students for us over the last 3 days, and we didn’t have one vehicle arriving late. In fact, they almost all arrived at the Arena at the same time. This meant that our performances could run really smoothly and the students’ overall experience on the day was excellent.

Leigh did a fantastic job and was totally on top of every issue before it even arose and became part of our team helping out with all sorts of tasks when the transport was sorted for the day.

This is our 6th year of working with you on this project and it’s always a pleasure as we have complete confidence in the service you are able to consistently provide.

We used one of your drivers today to show a group of our investors a few properties in Liverpool and the surrounding areas.

The driver’s name was Rob Gill. He was extremely helpful and we would definitely consider using his services again!

If there are any rewards or commendations for good reviews/service, Rob is 100% deserving of it.

It was a pleasure to work with Damian and the team at Belle Vue Coaches. They made managing multiple transfers for our large conference, run extremely smoothly.

We had a complicated transfer schedule, managing 250 people over 2 days. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the crew. Belle Vue Coaches was incredibly accommodating. Any changes that were made, were updated immediately. Even last minute schedule changes were no problem at all for the team.

The drivers are all very friendly. They also provided excellent communication on the day ahead of their pick up times, which showed that extra level of customer service.

Thanks again, Liz Liz Sinclair

Just want to thank yourselves, the driver Alan, the conductor Joanne for an absolutely brilliant experience yesterday at our wedding. Everything couldn’t have gone better. Alan was awesome, both of them really gave a really great service everyone had a great time on the bus and it was an absolute showstopper at the church. The priest said it was a first for him to see a vintage bus turn up at the church…everyone was impressed. Thank you so much for adding that extra touch to our day we’re so glad we booked the bus!!! Many thanks again for a brilliant experience on our special day. Matt & Claire

Good Morning!

Yesterday we had two coaches from Rose Hill Marple to Crocky Trail. The drivers we had were Julie and Simon and they were amazing, and an absolute credit to your company.

Julie rang me in the morning to double check all the details and to advise me that they were on their way. Then before setting off, both drivers double-checked we were happy with the route.

Simon and Julies were so polite and lovely with the Brownies and Leaders, I just thought I would pass on our feedback.

With thanks,

I am writing to let you know that we had a fantastic experience with two of your drivers, Phil and Paddy, on a recent trip to Paris, with WST Travel.

The drivers were so accommodating, friendly and professional. They made our experience truly fantastic. We cannot thank them enough for their excellent service and really wanted to pass on our gratitude – although I appreciate I am sending this email a month after the trip!

I would not hesitate to recommend Belle Vue Coaches to other schools in the future due to our great experience. It is all down to Paddy and Phil?s excellent service!

Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help in making our recent trip such a success. Every time we spoke you were so helpful and accommodating and a pleasure to work with.

Please could you also pass on our thanks to Kevin and Patrick. They were incredible! They put up with so much: city traffic, winding country lanes, changes of schedule and were always positive and helpful.

Dear Phil and Ian,

I am emailing you with regard to Dominic a coach driver who works for you. My name is Saba Bawany and I’m the Year 6 teacher at Greenfield Primary School in Hyde.

Last Thursday, Dominic was our coach driver to Gulliver’s World. I just wanted to inform you that he was an absolute star! He was really funny and really spoke with the kids. You could tell he was genuinely interested and trying to make the journey fun.

Once we arrived at Gulliver’s, he even came around with us and went of some rides with the children, which they really liked. I believe he even bought a child a water bottle, as they were thirsty and didn’t have any money (we offered to pay him back but he refused!)

I have organised many school trips and have been with many coach drivers, but I have yet to meet one like Dominic. He is a credit to your firm. When I arrange my trips next year, I will definitely be looking to book with yourselves and would request Dominic (depending on his availability).

I never usually email a company praising anyone, but he really deserved a mention to you! The children have also written letters of thanks to Dominic, which I will post out to your office. Many thanks to Dominic again for making our trip to Gulliver’s a memorable one!

Good Morning Jade!

Could you please share the information below with your colleagues?

I would like to thank your company for making our son’s wedding day so special. From the moment I contacted the company I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff in all the departments and the personal touch in ensuring that all of our requirements were met.

Saturday was such a special day and being able to share that with all the guests on your vintage bus was wonderful. Your driving staff on that day, Janet and Kevin, were so professional, friendly and polite. It was definitely the finishing touch to a perfect day!

Once again, thank you to all at Belle Vue Manchester!

A trip to Beacon Fell & Owd Nell’s Tavern

I would just like to thank you for your services on Saturday. The coach was brilliant! Our driver, Paddy, was excellent – very friendly and welcoming, but also very professional with it!

There was one incident where he had to get the coach round a tight bend – as some cars had parked up, causing an obstruction. The way he kept his cool and persevered to get the coach round the bend was exemplary! We were only a 1/4 mile from where he was to drop us off and we could have walked but Paddy got us there!

The new coach with wheelchair facility was a great improvement. Thank you!

We particularly want to commend our driver, Patrick on his exemplary conduct, patience, politeness and helpful assistance. Nothing was too much trouble. Not forgetting his excellent driving standard in sometimes difficult circumstances. He is a great asset to you. Please send him again when we next book a Belle Vue coach and pass on our sincere thanks.

We hired a coach on 28th May and our driver was Marcus Welby. I just wanted to say how professional he was. He made our members feel at ease, especially the member who was clamped in, in his wheelchair. I can’t stress enough how fantastic he was at his job and I thought you would like some feedback on him.

Dear Sir/Madam,

We had a great day out and loved the executive mini-coach.

Our driver Kevin was flexible and very attentive to the elderly offering help with seat belts and ensuring all were comfortable prior to departure.

Taking us through the lights he ensured another comfort stop was as required.

We made sure the coach was kept clean and tidy along the journey but Kevin was also efficient in checking all rubbish was cleared and the coach ready for the next group.

Please keep his details on our file so he can be our driver next time.

Thank you and we look forward to the next trip.

I am writing this letter about your driver Matt Turner on the 21/04/15 as I feel that his actions went above and beyond the call do duty. I was stood outside Trinity High School this morning waiting for a bus into town. There was an older lady crossing the road coming towards me in the bus stop. The old lady took a terrible fall into the middle of the road. Your driver whom was parked a little further down the road saw this happen. It is quite a busy road.. your driver jumped into action.. He first of all stopped all traffic coming from behind his coach.. making sure it was safe.. With myself he checked the lady was ok asking her various questions whilst he was calling an ambulance .. He stayed with the lady until the ambulance arrived and even offered me a cup of coffee which was very nice of him. This driver must be a credit to your company and I wish to thank him so much as you don’t often see random acts of kindness like this any longer. Mr Roger Abbott

Interested in hiring one of our buses?
