can argue that a fleet owner should be rendering an
outstanding service regardless, not to mention the
safety aspects which should never be an issue - why
the need for a Charter Management Company to
ensure all of that?
It is mainly a budget issue - coach owners are struggling
at the moment just to make the instalments on their
vehicles every month; therefore managers or supervisors
that normally have these responsibilities are either
not present in the company, or those that are contracted,
simply do not have the required training, skills or
even motivation because of the "budget salary"
In conclusion, it is currently a much better bet for
the bus hire market in our country to make use of
a Charter Management Company like LCS, than
to approach a fleet owner directly - not only do they
get better rates through the collective bargaining
principle, they also get a comprehensive service
as a complete product including the vehicle,
and above all, peace of mind that their expectations
will be met with no hidden surprises.
