Caradoc Coaches, based in the beautiful Shropshire Hills near the town of Church Stretton, started its journey in 1999, when Owner and Director Graham Gough bought his first coach with a redundancy cheque. Since that day the company has gone from strength to strength.
2014 saw the first brand new full-sized coach, a Mercedes Tourismo Executive with 49 seats. In 2015, two executive Tri-axle Neoplan Tourliners (both with 61 seats) were added to the fleet.
Two brand new 16 seated Mercedes Sprinters (with custom executive trim) were purchased in 2016 and due to the demand and ever increasing workload, 2017 saw the arrival of two brand new VDL Futura 2 Executive Coaches, both with 57 seats.
2018 will see the fleet increase yet again with the arrival of two TEMSA Executive Coaches, both with 53 seats.
In particular, we have developed into German tours, where we have full German operating compliance. We also work very closely with local schools, providing not only general school transport but also their requisite day trips and adhoc transport requirements.
With our pristine Executive Coaches and experienced, uniformed drivers, we are proud to have developed a reputation as a first class, reliable and professional company, who provide an excellent level of efficiency and service.
This year we are supporting “The Royal British Legion”, and as with every year, the first day trip is a complete charity event, where we provide the coaches and fuel and the drivers and couriers volunteer their time. The minimal charge of £6 to the passengers is pledged in its entirety to the charity and the passengers in turn enjoy a great “fun” outing, this year to Worcester, with raffles, competitions, prizes and entertainment whilst on route. Always a brilliant day for a great cause!
The charities logo is always placed on our Facebook page, website and tour brochure, giving them as much publicity as we can.
With a total employed count of over 20, we are one of the biggest employers in the area. Each member of staff is valued and appreciated, all our passengers are dealt with in a friendly and respectful way and it is this Ethos that makes the company the “SAINTS OF TRAVEL”.
