Tips for Ordering Bus Parts
The most important steps of ordering the right bus parts will be finding out what kind of bus you have, what year it was made, and whether or not you can find the right parts for it. However, if you’re not sure what kind of part you need, it’ll take a bit more work to figure out just what to order. Here are some tips to get you the bus parts you need.
Types of Bus
If you don’t know exactly what type of bus you own, you can find out fairly easily. There should be a decal on the bus that states the body number. This can be used to determine the type of bus you have. You can also always look at the vehicle identification number (VIN) and find out details that way.
Types of Parts
Finding the right parts is going to be pretty interesting if you’re not familiar withworking on your bus. There are thousands of bus parts out there, so you’ve got to identify the right part, and usually you can do that by looking at the part you want to replace. There should be a part number somewhere on the part.
Lifts and Special Equipment
Special equipment and lift equipped buses require a bit more electronic know-how. Fortunately, you can probably find a diagram that shows you what is what, andthen you can identify which part you need to order.
Working with Pros
The best tip is to work with people who know buses and bus parts. If you have an old bus, work with a company that has been in business a long time. If you aren’t sure what kind of part you need, contact a parts dealer who can help you to determine which parts you need. You’ll also find that even in Canada, you can get parts for US made buses if you work with the right company.
