Keeping the Community Going – Tayforth Travel

We recently worked once again with Paul Cruickshanks of Tayforth Travel to secure finance on a VW Transporter Shuttle to expand their luxury minibus travel fleet. We were introduced some time ago by David Fishwick in Colne and have since worked together for several purchases of various minibuses for their growing company.

The company is based in Falkirk in Scotland and are a big part of the community, providing tours of the local area’s tourist attractions alongside minicoach hire for all occasions and travel needs.

CAVA Finance is proud to have helped the company to grow during a difficult time and it’s great to see some normality resuming, with their new shuttle recently providing the transport for a customer’s golf trip to Drumoig Golf Centre in St Andrews, as seen in the photo below.

Tayforth Travel

Tayforth Travel is one of the many minibus, coach and taxi companies that have proved themselves to be invaluable during a crisis.

From helping key workers to ensuring the most vulnerable in society are cared for, transport companies have gone above and beyond what’s expected of them in order to keep communities functioning.

Paul kindly shared his story of how they’ve coped with the pandemic.

“Thanks again to Mike Bailey at CAVA Finance for helping us finance our new bus.

The coronavirus has hit us hard with the loss of tours, football hires, golf outings, airport transfers and schools.

We are fortunate that our local councils in Falkirk and West Lothian have been really good supporting us through these difficult times.

We have been doing some work at a special needs school and with the NHS and some voluntary work with Falkirk Football Club delivering food parcels to the elderly and needy.

We are one of the lucky coach operators that have survived some have not been so lucky.

Looking forward to returning back to normal, hopefully sometime soon.”

As you can see, Paul and the company are a big part of the Falkirk community, from providing transport to supporting their local football club, Falkirk FC. 

We’re looking forward to seeing all our customers again soon, in the meantime we are here to continue to provide advice and assistance around your next vehicle purchases. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to discuss your options.
