There’s no question you need buses as a part of your ground transportation company. Group transportation often makes up a large percentage of the sales of your business, and you can’t make the most of that money if you have to split it with an affiliate company. Rather than miss out on the majority of your group transportation revenue, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about a bus purchase. Of course, you also want to make sure you’re working with the best bus sales company, so you can’t jump in immediately. When you’re sure you’re ready to make the investment, here are some things you should consider.

Inventory

Choosing the right bus takes lots of research. You want to make sure you’re purchasing the right size and style for your clientele. With so many from which to choose, finding a company with a large selection is vital. Discovering the type you want or need, only to find your chosen bus sales company doesn’t carry it, can be discouraging. The best bus sales companies will have buses of all shapes, styles, and sizes. From trolleys and shuttle buses to limo buses and full-size coaches, you should have everything you want or need right there in the same place.

In addition to carrying several different sizes and styles, you should work with a bus sales company that can offer you new or pre-owned vehicles. Before you decide between the two, make sure you can get what you need out of each. A new bus can be tailored to your specifications, while a pre-owned bus will come as-is. If you can save enough money on the used version, it’s possible to re-fit the bus with the features you need. The best bet, however, is to find a pre-owned bus that already fits your needs so you can spend your investment dollars elsewhere.

There are also benefits to a new bus that you may want to consider. While you can certainly save thousands of dollars on a pre-owned bus, you could end up spending that money on upgrades and repairs. A new bus, though certainly expensive, will require a lot less maintenance within the first few years of ownership. Whichever you choose, the important thing is that your bus sales representative can provide either.

Ease of Financing

The best bus sales options also offer financing in house. You can, of course, feel free to use your own lender, but it’s always nice to know your chosen company makes it possible to walk away the same day with the bus of your choice. Also, when the lender is a part of the sales company, you can be certain they understand the nature of your business. A ground transportation company isn’t like any other business out there, a fact that could trip you up when borrowing money from your usual institution. You’ll also get terms that are amenable to a business owner who’s already making several payments on various vehicles for business. You’ll get the information you need to stay insured and to keep the proper documents on hand. No one outside the bus sales business could possibly keep you as informed as a dedicated bus lender.
