Bus Appraisal Solutions Tackles 3500 School Bus Reviews

McMinnville, Oregon - Bus Appraisal Solutions. Inspection teams are assembled and heading out to the mid west to undertake a sizable appraisal assignment of over 3500 school buses.


Senior inspector and Director of Asset Management, Richard Hill (shown here at right), is looking forward to the next 12 days spending time with the client and their team.  "I love seeing new innovations in asset preservations that our clients deploy. It's a lot like living in a class room."


Even though The "A" Team arrived at 3:30 am to catch their flight to St. Louis on Sunday morning, they were excited to get to work. With multiple teams and 12 days to review over 3,500 units, the team becomes very adept at sleeping on flights and in rental cars (when they are NOT Driving).


Entry level inspector Alex Helms is quoted as saying,  "We are very aggressive in the field and pay a great deal of attention to details of how the fleet is maintained and cared for".

The components of a truly valuable appraisal include comprehensive reporting on fleet care, condition of the equipment, and operating environment history. By providing this solid reporting, we include all the data needed to give our customers the advantage in buying and purchasing decisions.

In addition to our comprehensive reporting and the field work required to obtain the data, we also provide clear and effective communication of the information. This leads to a greater understanding of the assets, and how they can be utilized in any transaction.
