All vehicles need repairing to be kept in a good and safe condition. We take our cars for an MOT test to determine whether they are still safe to drive, and if there is a problem, repairs must be carried out. Coaches and Busses must also be regularly serviced and maintained, especially as the owner of a coach or bus is responsible for a large number of passengers. Also for insurance reasons, these public transport vehicles must be kept in good condition.
There are basic things which you should look out for yourself, such as making sure your cambelt is strong, checking how worn your tyres are and your tyre pressure, checking brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant and checking the oil pressure. When there are more serious problems to be dealt with, a professional garage will be able to deal competently with the problems.
It is advisable to find a company which deals exclusively with larger vehicles when looking for a garage to repair your coach or bus. An experienced mechanic will be able to ensure your vehicle is kept in a good state of repair.
There are few companies that offer a fleet of buses and coaches, extensive bus body refurbishment, bus repair and coach repair facilities for all models of public transport and a first class sign writing service, all under one roof. The list of work undertaken by the minority of bus refurbishment companies should include full bus body refurbishments, accident and insurance work, stretched panel fitting, welding and fabrication, graphics and vinyl work. Furthermore, large and small panel work, chassis repairs and bus body full repaints. Some may also provide vintage bus refurb and classic bus refurb.
