A gift from father to son
When Anthony Grieve arrived at work recently, he was presented with a huge surprise from his father Bill Grieve – a brand new Binz hearse and limousine to mark the handover of business from father to son.
Unknown to him, his father had been working behind the scenes, with the help of Kevin Smith at Superior UK, to arrange purchase and delivery of two bespoke vehicles. After 28 years running Thomas Grieve & Son, Bill plans to retire next year.
“As soon as I saw the new cars in the yard, I realised what dad had arranged,” said Anthony. “I was blown away by the surprise. The cars were put to work straight away and have been a huge asset to our fleet. My Dad and I have run the business together for eight years, and I’ll use the solid work ethic he’s taught me to take the business forward.
“My own sons – the fourth generation – will join the business before too long. I hope these cars will still be in our fleet then, so I can in turn pass them down to my sons.”
Kevin added: “This was a very special delivery. We were honoured to be a trusted part of the arrangements. The handover was very special!”
