  • Puddy Chandler – CouncillorPuddy Chandler – CouncillorThe coach was absolutely magnificent, the smell of the new leather was so good!

    The coach was absolutely magnificent, the smell of the new leather was so good! We became very attached to the ‘Black Panther’!

    It was all very comfortable and rode beautifully. Mark was very good, an excellent driver and plenty of personality which I think is important (didn’t do too much talking which some drivers do!)

    We likewise had a very good group of people so our trip overall went very well.

    Thanks for all your organizing, much appreciated.

    Regards
    Puddy .

  • Leigh – Pan Pacific Masters GamesLeigh – Pan Pacific Masters Games"Palmer's Coaches" experience to be absolutely fabulous!

    I found the whole "Palmer's Coaches" experience to be absolutely fabulous!
    The Operations Manager, met us at the gate and introduced us to our driver, Wayne, and then loaded a slab of cold water onto the bus for us.

    The bus was clean and fresh smelling and we had an easy run up to Brisbane.
    The Guam boys all fell in love with Wayne as he stopped at the Stapylton Servo for them. The fed him up on all sorts of things and then gave him some Krispy Kreme doughnuts for afternoon tea.

    All in all it was a very positive experience, friendly people, clean & comfortable buses, easy access and on time! What more could I ask...
    Thanks to everybody concerned.

  • Daniel Walker – Snow & Ski ToursDaniel Walker – Snow & Ski ToursI can rely on their judgement

    An essential component of our package tour is the coach transport from the schools to the accommodation, transferring the students daily to and from the ski lifts, and the return journey to the schools.

    For the last 10 years, I have been dealing with Palmer’s Coaches, who provide me with excellent service and meet all my expectations with regard to coach and driver optimisation, time frames, defining routes, and all conducted with reliability and risk minimisation.

    The general manager, Bruce has personally driven their coaches on some of my tours, and have a thorough understanding of their role and the importance they play in the integrity of the overall tour.

    I can rely on their judgement in relation to proceeding in adverse road and weather conditions which are often encountered in the ski field environs.

    Feedback from the school groups is always positive in regard to their service.

    These attributes have been instilled in their company drivers, and feedback from my Tour Leaders about the driver participation as part of our team, is always positive and enthusiastic.

    The personalised service extends to Rick and Bruce in their managerial roles also, and I am always confident of their advice and demonstrated expertise with transport logistics, such as travel times and rest stops throughout our tours, and other crucial consideration of safety, driving hours and risk management.

    Life was made very easy last night but booking with Palmer’s coaches. Very professional, saved time and money and my sanity. Loved the extra touch of the driver playing Taylor swift on the way up.
