Cornwall based Truronian Coaches, has added the iconic, classic coach operations of King Harry Coaches to its growing business.

Since 2003 King Harry Coaches has been providing bespoke classic coach hire in a niche market that demands high quality and customer service.

Two coaches have transferred to the Truronian fleet along with the current order book, and access to all future business and bookings.

King Harry Coaches will continue to market bespoke hire alongside Truronian itself, with all operations taken on by Truronian.

The classic coaches will become the first vehicles to adopt a new ‘Truronian Classic’ sub brand, with further additions planned to join the fleet later this year. The ‘Truronian Classic’ brand has been created by Best Impressions.

Truronian has expanded to operate across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, and specialises in VIP and team transport, PSVAR rail replacement, educational contracts, general private hire and touring.

Lee Horrocks, business manager at Truronian Coaches, said: “We’re delighted to be able to take on and continue the provision of classic coach hire from our friends at King Harry Coaches.

"Their focus on outstanding customer service and attention to detail is something we will continue to deliver and we’re excited to be able to add the two beautiful classic coaches to our fleet.”

David Russell of King Harry Coaches said: “The time has come for us to hand over the King Harry operation. We approached our friends at Truronian knowing that their enthusiasm and professionalism in the coach market was second to none.

"We were delighted at their enthusiasm to take on and develop the King Harry product. The coaches and the ethos of the business are safe in their hands”.

The two coaches joining the Truronian fleet are UUO 198, a 1956 Bedford SBG Duple Vega, and AFJ 77B, a 1964 AEC Reliance Harrington.
