Inspect? perform needed bodywork? Anything more than just wash them and toss them out on the lot with a balloon tied to them?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Greetings Dan. Thanks for the welcoming. I as well am hoping to contribute to the forum more than just trying to generate sales
. Some may frown on my sales presence in the forum and i can surely understand that. My take on it though is im not here to try and cram sales down anybodies throat......rather im here to help if anybody is in search of a bus to be converted or even to be used in some other fashion by offering them the peace of mind that comes from buying a quality bus from a reputable dealer.We take pride in and stand behind all of our buses 100%.Now, to answer some of your questions
. Question 1: Majority of our stock comes from school districts across the state. When they retire thier buses, ( many of which have years of life left and are exceptional quality but are retired because they are mandated to get new fleets with budget renewals) we take them in on trades for new buses as we are also a dealer for new buses as well. Question 2: As i said we stand behind buses and we definately dont just take them in a pass them right back out. Our mission at DBBS is to service the transportation industry with the best selection of safe high quality vehicles while accepting no less than excellence in the customer experience. We take that seriously.....and our reputation speaks for itself in reassuring that. When we receive service records with a bus we absolutely pass them through. We take great pride in making sure your getting the best bus for your money.......we cant survive in the business by just trying to nail a sale and moving on. Our future lies within making sure your satisfied after your purchase with your bus and you come back in the future as well as spread the word about the excellent experience you had with us.
