Our History

Coach Options Ltd was founded by Paul Stone.  He is the Managing Director of the company and has a wealth of experience in the coaching industry.

Where Pauls love of coaches first began!!

Let's go back, way back to the 1970s - here you see Paul Stone cleaning his coach, if you ever have the chance to visit us you will probably see him pottering around the yard possibly with a mop or brush in his hand. One of the things that Paul has incorporated into our "Customer Service Values" is to ensure our coaches are clean and tidy for your trip.

Paul has always had a passion for coaches and his ambition was, and still is, to be the best!  Our coaches have always been ahead of their time and we were one of the first local companies to have coaches with a W.C and TV/video on board, which led to our first major contract.

Within 18 months of starting up the business, Paul received a phone call from the Chairman of Blackburn Rovers, Mr Fox.  He wanted to use our coach to go to Manchester City because he had heard that the coach had tables on board.  Paul initially turned the job down due to previous bad experiences with other football clubs!

However, after some persuasion from Mr Fox, Paul turned up for the job and that was the start of the successful 35 year relationship that this company has had with Blackburn Rovers F.C; transporting their teams around the country.

Fast forward to today and Coach Options is still very much a family run business. Whilst Coach Options has always been one of the leading companies of Greater Manchester, we as the younger generation aim to set the bar even higher.  We are bringing in modern and innovative ideas to help the company stay ahead of its time as it has always done, while maintaining the traditional values of the company.  We are investing in new technology, such as lane departure warning systems, advanced emergency braking, satellite tracking in our vehicles, WiFi, USB powerpoints and greener vehicles to reduce our carbon footprint.
