Shuttle Bus Leasing for Hotels
If you’re the owner or operator of one of the many hotels in Florida, then you will know just how competitive the industry can be. To be able to meet your targets and maintain profitability, you need to be able to differentiate your service from your competitors. One of the best ways that you can do this, is by operating your own shuttle bus service.
When you run your own buses, you won’t have to worry about a third party contractor not living up to your expectations, and you can even reduce costs when compared to outsourcing the work. If you’re ready to start incorporating your own hotel service for your patrons, shuttle bus leasing is the best way to do it.
At Atlantic Bus Sales, we have you covered.
Why Shuttle Bus Leasing is the Best Option
If you’ve been thinking about purchasing your own shuttle bus for your hotel service, then you should first take a look at the alternative. Leasing provides a number of advantages, and makes a lot of sense when transportation is not your main line of business. It’s not just about saving money (although that is a benefit), because you’ll also find that leasing is much more convenient and effective in the long term.
Unlike purchasing a bus, leasing won’t require the typical financing process. If you were purchasing a bus, you’d need to provide a sizeable deposit, go through the credit application process, and all of this would have an impact on your hotel’s debt ratio. This could be detrimental if your organization needs to apply for credit in the future, so for these reasons, shuttle bus leasing is the better option.
In addition to not having to go through the traditional financing process, you’ll enjoy lower overall payments. The cost of leasing a bus is much lower than buying one, so your monthly payments will be smaller. In addition to this, you’ll be able to make better use of your available budget when you compare things dollar for dollar. This is because we are able to recoup the costs of a bus over a long period of time, and we pass those savings along so that shuttle bus leasing is more affordable for you.
As a consumer, you’ve probably felt the sting of depreciation on a vehicle that you have owned in the past. When it comes to resale, you will lose a significant amount of money on any vehicle that you own. Because your bus is likely to do frequent mileage from carrying passengers to some key local destinations and airports, the depreciation in value will occur at a heightened rate. The best way to avoid this is to lease. You won’t have to worry about the stress of selling your bus when it’s time for an upgrade, and you’ll be able to get a near perfect estimation of your operating costs, right from the moment that you sign the leasing agreement.
Speaking of upgrades, shuttle bus leasing will allow you to upgrade much more frequently than if you were to purchase your own bus. Because of this, you’ll be able to maintain your hotel’s image with near-new shuttle bus models. This is particularly important if you run an upscale hotel, and you won’t have to worry about deterioration or replacing upholstery/electronics/etc. during the lifetime of the bus. Sign for a shorter multi-year leasing agreement, and you’ll be able to upgrade every two to five years, depending on your needs. Talk to us about lease terms and upgrade plans, and we’ll figure out an option that works for your business.
With so many benefits, it should already be clear that bus leasing is the best option for your hotel, however, there’s just one more thing that might seal the deal in your mind. When you choose to lease a bus from a leading national bus sales and leasing company, you’ll also have the advantage of getting regular maintenance from qualified technicians who have plenty of experience with your exact bus model. At Atlantic Bus Sales, we provide maintenance services for all of our bus leasing contracts, and that means that you’ll never have to worry about finding obscure spare parts, or taking your bus out of service for extended periods when something goes wrong. You can’t put a price on this kind of peace of mind, and you won’t always get this type of service when you buy a new bus from other dealers.
