When searching for the perfect bus for yourself or your business, it’s important to properly research where you are getting it from. There are several bus dealerships across the country, but not all of them carry high-quality buses or offer exceptional customer service.
Here are a few things to look for in a bus dealership!
Variety of Inventory
You want your bus dealership to have a large inventory of new and used buses to ensure you can find exactly what you are looking for. Choosing from a wide selection of buses means you won’t feel pressured into buying a bus that doesn’t fully suit your needs just because you don’t want to leave empty-handed. You may find something you didn’t even know you wanted, like a bus with flat-screen TVs or a school bus with wheelchair accessibility.
A bus dealership that responds to customer inquiries promptly, whether online or by phone, is important. It shows that they are dedicated to their business and their customers. You want to work with a company that sees you as a top priority, not just another sale.
Pay attention to how you are treated when visiting the dealership and how you are spoken to in person on the phone or through email. Are they taking the time to listen to your questions and concerns? If they don’t know the answer to your question, are they offering to do some research for you? Look for dealerships with policies that ensure you remain connected after your sale, such as a helpful warranty department or parts for future maintenance.
Purchasing a bus is a big financial decision. A good bus dealership will prioritize working within your budget and help you choose the right payment structure, whether leasing or financing, etc. You may have to look elsewhere if the dealer doesn’t have multiple financing options available to suit your needs.
