Latest News @ WS Hamilton
8th October 2014
Well summer is over and there is certainly a chill in the air, we have had a pretty good few months business wise and that has helped us in our quest to find new more suitable premises which we are now in. Still very local in Whitehill Industrial Estate on the edge of Bathgate, we also just as recently as last week succesfully applied for extra operator discs allowing us to have 3 more vehicles on the road and in the coming months we will be activley seeking a new bus as well as replacing 1 or 2 others if suitable replacements can be found.
In our new premises we are also starting a new business which is called WSH Fast Fix Ltd and this will be opening in the not to distant future once the last of our new equipment and relevant paperwork has been put in place, we will be carrying out car and van servicing and light repairs aswell as new & part worn tyres, we are currently building up stock for our part worn tyres it's been pretty time consuming.
We have took part in a 2 year sponsorship deal with a community partnership company helping support local youth football teams throughout West Lothian.

Well we are now in the beginning of June and the last month of school before the summer holidays, gala day season is here aswell and as we write this it's lashing down with rain, how typical. We have had a very busy few weeks and the next month is showing no signs of letting off either, not that we are complaining. We also have some big plans in the pipeline for our company in the near future and hope to announce it shortly.
We have had a dabble in providing shuttle services in the last few weeks, we used our coach to assist in the transportation of the competitors & spectators of the very first running of the Bing Blazer assault course which was in the middle of May at the Sibbald training centre & Cph Ltd venue in between Armadale & Blackridge and just on Saturday past we provided the park & ride shuttle service from Armadale Stadium to Bathgate for the British Pipe Band Championships & Highland games where the chieftain of the games was local superstar Susan Boyle. Both events were well attended and it was a pleasure to supply the transport, we look forward to doing it again next year should the opportunity arise.

Well we are smack bang in the middle of the easter holidays & our schools are all off for some much needed R&R not sure if it's for the kids or the teachers though.
We are putting good use to our buses not getting used on a daily basis over these 2 weeks with our 16 seater Merc Sprinter which has just finished 2 tours with our friends at Visit Scotland has now had it's turbo sent away for re-con, it will be back on the road for the Good Friday weekend where it has some wedding transfers to carry out.
What & Where
A few weeks ago we also supplied one of our buses free of charge for a charity walk across the Forth Road Bridge in aid of Meningitis research. This was a pleasure for us to carry out this transfer for such a worthy cause.
We have covered transport to the Ricky Burns fight and even the Backstreet Boys in concert, we have been to Loch Ness, Aberdeen and more. Golfers days outs, stag do's to Glenkinchie distillery, hen parties to Benidorm & a trip just a few days ago to the Scottish Grand National at Ayr, we have had a varied few weeks and look forward to it continuing after the traditional slow start in the New Year.
Until next time take care.
