Five years of the BusStore pre-owned bus and coach brand: more international, even more services
- Even closer customer proximity thanks to five more locations
- Additional peace of mind: new warranty for buses and coaches up to six years old
- Buying used is a matter of trust
Every bus no matter how fascinating will eventually turn into a pre-owned bus. Many bus operators throughout Europe trust in the quality of tried and proven buses and coaches from Mercedes‑Benz and Setra. A job for BusStore. The quality brand of EvoBus for pre-owned buses and coaches is celebrating an anniversary this year. Five years after being founded, BusStore has earned a leading position in the pre-owned bus business in Europe. BusStore moves even closer to its customer in the anniversary year: This involves additional locations as well as further expanded services.
Even closer customer proximity thanks to five more locations
The BusStore outlets in Zagreb/Croatia, Bratislava/Slovakia, Budapest/Hungary as well as Cesis/Latvia are new additions this year. BusStore has additionally expanded its presence in France with an outlet in Albi, north-east of Toulouse. BusStore is now present in a total of 19 locations in Europe. BusStore is already planning its next expansion with a second wave.
Due to the different legal forms in the individual countries, BusStore now for the first time makes a distinction between BusStore Centres and BusStore Partners. Centres are Group-owned companies, partners are contractual partners, but separate legal entities. In practice, there is no difference for the customer: The comprehensive commitment to service is the same across all locations.
Additional peace of mind: new warranty for buses and coaches up to six years old
This applies to the warranty as well. BusStore has extended its services in this area. The one-year BusStore warranty on the powertrain of Mercedes-Benz and Setra buses and coaches is now being extended to buses up to six years and with up to 600,000 km on the clock.
BusStore goes global: marketing of pre-owned buses and coaches in Mexico
Reputable business practices related to pre-owned buses and coaches are in demand worldwide. After five years, BusStore is therefore looking beyond Europe for the first time, and is globalising the successful European business model. The pilot project is BusStore Mexico, where an organisation for marketing the local pre-owned buses and coaches is currently being established with active support from BusStore. The processes and the brand promise are based on the European example. Mexico is just the first step, a transfer to other countries is planned.
Buying used is a matter of trust
Buying used is a matter of trust: Founded in 2013, BusStore has combined all activities of Mercedes-Benz and Setra related to pre-owned buses and coaches, and professionalised them further. The hallmark traits of BusStore are the unrivalled vehicle pool with several hundred pre-owned buses and coaches throughout Europe and unique services ranging from the careful inspection and reconditioning of pre-owned buses and coaches, and the transparent classification as belonging to the categories Gold, Silver and Bronze, to warranties and services. BusStore markets some 2000 buses and coaches a year in this way.
All sites of BusStore are located in the vicinity of major Omniplus service centres. This ensures maximum expertise for the reconditioning of any pre-owned bus. Potential buyers are able to search for the bus or coach they want not just at their national location, but throughout Europe. In addition to the personal contact or a query, it is especially the homepage page http://www.bus-store.com/ in 20 languages that is ideal for this purpose.
BusStore does business as a separate brand independently of new vehicle sales. The experts buy popular pre-owned buses and coaches, and sell them internationally. This also applies to competitor models in addition to Mercedes-Benz and Setra. In a nutshell: BusStore offers buyers of pre-owned buses and coaches first-class second-hand quality.
