If your city bus headquarters doesn't already work closely with a mobile bus mechanic service, now is the time to consider doing so. Here are just a few reasons to make sure that a reliable mobile repair service is on speed dial at your bus facility:
Save Some Time and Money
One great reason to keep a mobile bus repair service on speed dial is to save your city some money and time when it comes to maintaining and repairing your facility's buses. When it's time for maintenance, you can make a simple phone call and have technicians dispatched to your bus yard where they'll do all the work. You won't have to spend money transporting the buses to a repair facility in order have them serviced, and you won't have to pay employees to spend time making sure that proper maintenance is taken care of.
And if a bus driver breaks down on their route, you can get a repair technician sent to their location right away to make needed repairs and get them back on the road quickly. There's no need to pay for a tow or to find a repair shop that happens to be open and available to make repairs – and you will get your driver back on the road quickly so productivity isn't dramatically affected.
Access On-Call Emergency Service
If your bus yard is about to close down for the day and a driver breaks down on their way back from completing their last route, you don't want to have to leave the bus on the side of the road until it can be towed and repaired in the morning. And you shouldn't have to figure out how to get your bus driver safely back to the bus yard so they can clock out and go home.
If the bus is left on the side of the road, chances are that it will be vandalized or get damaged somehow which will cost your facility even more money to get it back on the road again. But if you can call an emergency mobile bus company to make the repairs, you can get your bus and your driver back on the road and back to the bus yard in no time.
Keep Your Drivers and Customers Happy
When a city bus breaks down, you can expect the experience to annoy both the bus driver and the customers who have paid to get a ride. So the sooner you can get everyone back on the road, the happier you can keep them and the more likely customers will be to continue paying for bus rides to get around. Getting your buses repaired quickly with the help of a mobile repair service will help keep your bus drivers satisfied too, which should help minimize overall employee turnover as time goes on.
