First 20 Seater Coach & New Premises

We soon realised we needed bigger premises and needed to expand the minibus and coach business. We moved premises from Church Lane to Church Court. This had a number of garages and ample parking around the bungalow.

The first 20 seater was purchased and the decision was made to wind down on the taxis.


Further Expansion

Our fleet continued to increase to approximately 12 vehicles’ mainly full-size coaches, but we were once again very quickly outgoing our premises.

Mr Ross offered on our premises on Allison Street Featherstone. In 1984 the build for our garage and offices went ahead, in 2016 the yard premises were expanded to hold at least 12 more vehicles
