A family run coach company 

We are a family run company. Formed in 1972, we started with a couple of taxis, based in New Milton, Hampshire. In 1976, the company acquired its first 14 seat minibus. Two years later, there was a 53 seat coach too. 1982 saw the closure of the taxi business and all efforts concentrated on the coach company and the fleet of coaches and minibuses. Soon after this, the Skew's sons, John and Paul joined the business as drivers and mechanics. Their wives, Carolyn and Catherine also now work for the company. In 1986, the company moved its vehicle base from New Milton to Crow in Ringwood. The office remained at this time in New Milton. The office has now also transferred to Ringwood so that all our operations are on one site.

Well-maintained vehicles  

Our fleet of modern vehicles range from a 22-seater midi coach to 87-seater double decker coaches, including full executive coaches to meet your private hire requirements. The vehicles are maintained in our own workshops to the highest standard. Our uniformed drivers are smart, friendly, courteous and willing to help. Our aim is to give a competitive price whilst maintaining a high standard of service, and not to offer the cheapest price by lowering our standards.
