How to Keep a Clean Bus and a Clean Brand Reputation
The consequences of reputational damage for bus companies can be severe, so many bus operators invest in business reputation management, focusing on aspects such as the availability and timeliness of services, rightly recognising that these service features matter to customers. But how important is it that your fleet is cleaned to exceptional standards and what impact could dirty buses have on your business’s reputation?
How Clean Buses Drive Business Success
A healthy exterior fosters a happy interior. Branded buses are a common and eye-catching sight on the roads and in local communities, so filthy vehicles are likely to be noticed for all the wrong reasons. When a dirty mud-encrusted bus pulls up, passengers may be dissuaded from boarding. Conscious of the importance of high levels of safety, customers will wonder if there’s more to worry about than a dirty exterior: after all, if a bus company cannot be bothered to give its fleet a wash, will it invest the time and money on the maintenance of engines, tyres, and other components?
Rather than fall into the trap of acquiring a poor reputation, these three steps will help to protect your brand identity and improve service levels for passengers:
1. Invest In A Bespoke Wash System
At Britannia Wash Systems, our expert team can designa cost-effective and sustainable wash system that meets the needs of your business, so you can give each vehicle a deep clean at the first sign of dirt accumulating on the bodywork. Our systems are designed and built to fit the model of your buses to deliver exceptional standards every time.
2. Go Electric
Join the drive for sustainability by going green! Electric buses are emerging in many towns and cities as sustainable energy becomes more efficient and affordable, playing a key role in slashing carbon emissions and noise pollution. Businesses that operate electric bus fleets enjoy a positive reputation amongst customers who value the commitment to protecting the environment against the perils of climate change. As no harmful pollutants are emitted, your vehicles will also stay cleaner, for longer, reducing the need for deep cleaning.
3. Stay Ahead With Maintenance
A schedule of preventive maintenance can help to keep your buses on the road, earning income and protecting your reputation for timely and reliable passenger services. A maintenance programme will ensure that emerging problems are spotted early on so that repairs can be carried out at a convenient time, while the chances of breakdowns will be dramatically reduced. Maintaining your bus wash system is also important, so it is always available to return your fleet to pristine condition, ready for the next journey.
