Howard Lyles, MD, A Lyles & Son.

We have used the services of Steve Swain at Chartwell Bus Sales for both selling and purchasing vehicles for our Longstaff brand.

The buses we have sold have been excellently marketed and Steve achieved the best possible resale values, for which we were most grateful.

The vehicles we have purchased from Chartwell have been exactly as described and the buying process was made simple from start to finish.

We highly recommend Steve and Chartwell Bus Sales to any operators in the market.

Danny Mountcastle, Ops Director, Sleafordian Coaches.

I have recently brought a vehicle from Steve and can honestly say the whole process from start to finish was so simple.

Steve was great from the outset and kept me up to date with the progress on the vehicle delivery date.

Will be contacting Chartwell again when we are looking for another vehicle/s.

Debs Hart, Ops Manager, OTS Falmouth

Steve was a pleasure to do business with, an easy & smooth transaction. Thank you.

Keith Sanzo, Managing Director, Eurocoaches Ltd.

Steve has helped me more than I can say. I normally always try and sell my own vehicles but I don't have the contacts and knowledge Steve has. In a matter of weeks and sometimes hours Steve managed to sell all of our vehicles worth a total of £500k. I can't rate this company and Steve highly enough.

Selwyn Jones, Managing Director, Selwyns Travel Ltd.

In mid-August this year, I approached Steve Swain of Chartwell Bus services to dispose of 11 vehicles for me, 9 x Double deck and two single deck buses. By the mid-September all of the vehicles had been sold to various Companies.
This was a fantastic result, especially given that most of them were sold to existing industry contacts of Steve without the need to advertise.
