Murrays trusts Higer in remote Queensland

Thursday, July 2, 2015

When Murrays Coaches needed a fleet of 28-seaters to service mines in the rugged Queensland outback, they chose to use Higer Bus and Coach. 

Servicing the area around Roma and Chinchilla in Queensland, Murrays Coaches utilised a fleet of Higer H7170 Munros to transport miners between job sites. In the first 18 months of service, the buses each covered over 100,000km without issue.

Murrays Coaches' Fleet Manager, Justin Cannon says "vehicle reliability is essential for any job but it was even more necessary in this case. The region we're servicing is remote and the passengers we're transporting are very hard-working, so they need that extra level of comfort the Higer H7170 Munro provides."

Murrays Coaches were a key player in developing the latest version of the Higer H7170 Munro, so knowing the vehicle inside and out made their decision an easy one.

"It's rare that a manufacturer will allow an operator to have as much involvement in developing a new model as we had with the latest Higer H7170. We were thrilled to be involved. The fact that we can see our input in the final product cements our confidence in the brand and the team behind it," Justin says.

CEO of Higer's local distributor WMC Group, Neil Bamford says that he feels privileged to have a partner like Murrays Coaches who have such passion for their business, their clients and the Higer product.

"There is no better source of feedback than our customers to give us an insight into the 'day-to-day' experiences of drivers and passengers. The team at Murrays have offered invaluable feedback that has been instrumental in developing the new Higer H7170 Munro, a model we're proud to have."

"Having a long-serving and experienced Australian operator trust Higer in Queensland speaks loud and clear that Higer really is at home in Australia," Neil says.

Murrays Coaches have further expanded their fleet of Higers to continue servicing clients in ACT, NSW and Queensland.
