Take Advantage of your Warranty with the Best Bus Parts in the Industry
When you buy a shuttle bus or even a fleet of shuttle buses for your business there are a few things that you will need to ensure. Most importantly, you need to make sure that your bus remains in working order for the foreseeable future which isn’t always easy. We’re go to level with you here, shuttles are very hard on bus parts due to their constant operation. Let’s take an airport shuttle bus for example.
You know how airports operate; they never shut down and they are always serving passengers. You can imagine that their shuttle buses will be doing the exact same thing over, and over, and over again. That being said, you need to be able to trust in two very distinct but important things: 1. Your shuttle buses will be able to handle the abuse year after year, and 2. You need to be sure that there is a warranty option.
It might not sound very important right now, as you are buying the bus, but later on it will become much more clear why you would need such an option. Before you seek out a warranty that provides parts for a Krystal bus or even a Diamond bus, you need to understand how warranties work, especially in the case of shuttle buses.
Bus Parts Warranties; Why they Differ from your Average Vehicle Warranty
The first thing you need to know about warranties for shuttle buses is that they tend to come in parts and they change depending on the length of time. For example, you have two major areas that the warranty will cover: the body and the chassis. In some cases the warranty for each of these might be held by a different company, though there are some instances where you’ll get a package deal depending on who you are going through.
Starting out with a basic one-year warranty, you will get precisely want you pay for; most providers will only replace the most basic components, but if you decide to take it up a notch, you will find that even more components are covered under the warranty. Door controls, mirrors, brackets, insulation, luggage racks, seats, etc, are all covered under a typical two-year warranty, and much more. Keep in mind however, that sometimes even warranties of this length will only include the body; you may need to take it up a notch if you want to include the chassis in the deal.
The following parts are included in the chassis:
- Engine Electronic Controls
- Water Pump
- Turbo Charger
All of these are essential parts and they will see just as much wear and tear as any other part of the vehicle; keep that in mind!
Find the Warranty That’s Right for You
In the end you need to choose a warranty that works well for you and one that fits the needs of your industry. Some buses do run 24/7, and some only run during regular business hours.
