iest times for dealer service centers are when school is out on breaks and the buses are not in use. “Many school systems, both


private and public, will postpone non-critical repairs when the buses are not needed for school service. Summer is also a time when school systems have new budgets and often perform larger jobs, like engine and transmission repairs or replacements on buses that may have been previ- ously out of service,” said Childress. Eckert said that A-Z Bus Sales sees a 30 percent spike in business during summer and winter breaks.


MAXIMIZING YOUR INVESTMENT All three of the dealer representa-


tives agreed that timely maintenance and ensuring that district techni- cians are properly trained are the top ways to maximize any invest- ments on maintenance and repair costs. Many dealer service centers offer things like training or support programs for clients. Childress said that Sonny Mer-


ryman employs a full-time tech- nical trainer to provide support to customers at no charge, and he also emphasized the importance of regu- lar maintenance in saving money. “We encourage our bus partners to maximize repair dollars by following prescribed preventative maintenance schedules. Proper maintenance extends component life and also provides the technician an oppor- tunity to make small repairs and


adjustments before they become costly,” he said. Leonard Bus Sales also offers in-house, mobile and some online training opportunities. “At Leonard Bus Sales, one of the things that we do with our school transportation partners after they purchase a new school bus is to work with them to maintain their buses to help them maximize their investment and, most importantly, make sure their school buses are running safely,” Stiteler said. l
