Important Reasons Why Summer is the Best Time to Search for New Buses for Sale

With summer well underway across the country, older buses are starting to feel the heat. Coming to the realization that you might need an upgrade becomes undeniable when a heat wave hits and your AC is blowing hot air. Here are five important reasons to begin your search for new buses for sale this summer.

 

Summer Downtime Equals Profit Loss

Due to increased usage and higher temperatures, older buses tend to break down more often in the summer. For businesses that rely on summer travel dollars, this down time can be detrimental. Don't let a single down day eat into your profits. Search for new buses for sale and prevent these delays before they affect your bottom line.

Record Breaking Heat is a Health and Safety Risk

With temperatures reaching well above 100°F for a good portion of the United States, air conditioning is vital for the health and safety of your customers and employees. Older buses may not have efficient AC units and may run the risk of a malfunction that could put your customers and drivers in danger. This is particularly true for businesses that service the elderly and young children.

How to Tell if it's Time to Update Your Tour Bus Fleet This Summer

Knowing when to stop putting money into a bus and when to purchase a new bus can be a difficult balance. Buses can be either money makers or money pits for tour companies throughout the United States. Here's how to tell if you need to update your tour bus fleet this summer.

  •  Current Fleet Status

The biggest telltale sign that it's time to upgrade is the current condition of your fleet. Older buses or those with visible wear and tear should be replaced with newer models. Also, if you have buses that had more out of order days than days in service it's a good indicator that you should update your tour bus fleet.

  • High Maintenance Costs

The older your fleet, the higher the maintenance costs, particularly if your models have been discontinued because parts may become difficult to find. If you have noticed that your costs are beginning to rise, it might be worth investing in new tour buses.
