GUARANTEED D.O.T. INSPECTIONS:
We offer, for $200, a 3rd party D.O.T. inspection. This
means the bus will be taken to a licensed D.O.T. truck
inspection facility. BGA School Buses, Inc. has no
affiliation with this truck repair shop, whatsoever.
This shop has proven itself to us [over the years] to be
incredibly thorough and to not cut any corners.
This shop has proven itself to be very honest with us, and
they do very good repair work. Therefore, if they can
find anything at all wrong with the bus, they know we will pay
them to make the repairs. It is in their best interest
to find something wrong!
Though the buses we sell have been state inspected each year
of their life, and though we have driven them hundreds of
miles, ourselves, we occasionally find something wrong with a
bus. When we do, we have it repaired. So,
the bus you purchase, whether or not it goes in for a GUARANTEED D.O.T. INSPECTION from us, is the same bus. It
has been inspected by professionals each time it was serviced
over the years, each time it was driven, at each annual school
bus inspection, at the time of our purchase, at the time of us
driving it to FL, and as soon as it arrived at our Florida
sales lot. With or without a GUARANTEED D.O.T. INSPECTION, we believe our buses to be in
tip-top condition. This GUARANTEED D.O.T. INSPECTION simply adds another professional's
opinion and helps you feel comfortable with your purchase.
At the time of inspection, if repairs are determined to be
needed, BGA School Buses, Inc. has the option to repair the
bus or give the customer back all of their money.
The customer can leave with their money, or apply it towards a
different bus. The decision to make repairs or
return your money is solely up to BGA School Buses, Inc.
Once the bus passes inspection, a D.O.T. inspection
certificate will be issued and it can be applied to the
bus. This certifies that the bus is safe to
operate on public roads for the next year. This
inspection makes no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the
mechanical condition of the bus after the
inspection. It simply verifies that the bus is in
safe operating condition at the time of
Federal law requires all commercial vehicles to have a D.O.T.
inspection performed annually. If you are purchasing the
bus for private, noncommercial use, there is no requirement by
law to have the vehicle inspected. However, all of
the buses we offer for sale are eligible for GUARANTEED D.O.T. INSPECTIONS. If
you intend to use your bus for private purposes, but still
wish to have it inspected prior to conversion, we will be glad
to do this for you. This way, if the inspection
determines something to be unsafe, repairs are made at our
expense, not yours. Again, the bus you purchase without
an inspection is the exact same bus you purchase with the
inspection. We do not want to have to do repairs to the
bus after you purchase it, so we do our best to make sure the
bus is in tip-top condition. Also, we deliver many
of the buses we sell. We do not want to be broken down
on the side of the road any more than you do. So, we do
our best to make sure the buses are roadworthy, safe, and
