EVM appoints UK Minicoaches

EVM Ltd has appointed UK Minicoaches of Willenhall as an Authorised Sales Agent for the EVM range of Sprinter based minicoaches, assisting customers with vehicle trade-ins. The management team at EVM claims this will mean the already streamlined sales approach it uses for its new vehicle purchases now extends to part exchanges. In 2012-13, EVM’s sales grew by 35% over the previous period. Sales Manager, Danny Mcgee, has declared the growth a natural result of the continued focus on the build quality of its product. All the company’s vehicles arrive with European Whole Vehicle Type Approval and full three year unlimited mileage chassis warranty from Mercedes-Benz. Various finance and extended warranty options are available on them.

Sales and Marketing Manager for EVM, Peter Flynn, said, ‘We have worked with the guys in UK Minicoaches for some time now and have developed a close working relationship with Adrian Pedley and Gerald Whitehouse. With over 15 years experience in the bus and coach sector, UK Minicoaches are well placed to make 2014 a year of continued growth for the EVM Brand. EVM’s approach to sales is very simple, the customer gets to spec the vehicle they want, have it delivered when they want with a build quality that is unequalled in the industry’.
