Buses And Their Leading Manufacturers
The earliest buses were the horse drawn versions of the 1820s, followed by steam models a short time later. Electric trolleybuses came on the scene in the 1880s, and the first commercial buses powered by the internal combustion engine appeared in the mid 1890s. DAIMLER were one of the first companies to become successful in the field of bus manufacturing. In more recent years there has been increased interest in more environmentally friendly buses, leading to electric, hybrid electric, fuel cell, bio diesel and compressed natural gas fuel options. The most common design in the world today is the single deck rigid bus, with minibuses for applications serving fewer passengers, and double decker and articulated buses used to transport greater numbers. The VOLVO B7R is a coach chassis that is available with a range of bodies. Used around the world, it has a reputation for robustness and reliability. The VOLVO Olympian and Super Olympian are rear engined double decker buses that also have a world class reputation and are very popular among those looking to buy used buses. ALEXANDER DENNIS are a world-renowned bus manufacturing company whose products are noted for supremely high quality. The ALEXANDER DENNIS Enviro range is noted for excellent style and fuel economy, along with enhanced passenger comfort and greatly reduced tailpipe emissions. The MAN CitySmart is noted for its superb performance on urban routes, being both versatile and reliable, and has a capacity of 37 seated and 32 standing. The SCANIA ADL 300 has a 12 metre overall length and are available as the diesel-powered E300S and the compressed natural gas or bio-gas fuelled E300SG, the latter being classified as carbon neutral when using sustainable fuel. The various fully built buses manufactured by TATA are noted for excellence and very high quality standards. They are particularly in demand as used buses at auction. The BLUE BIRD company specialise in school buses and their line of vehicles is noted for innovative design, safety and reliability.
What Are The Advantages Of Buying Used Buses At Auction?
Perhaps the most common reason for buying used buses is to save money on initial costs. You can pick up a vehicle at a used buses auction for a far lower price than if you were to buy new. In some cases, the bus might not be required every day or be needed for travelling very far, so it's not essential to have a brand new model and you will still get value for money. Another advantage if you choose to buy used buses is avoiding a loss due to depreciation as new buses, as with most other vehicles, lose value as soon as they are driven away.
