We’re Your Paratransit lift repair Destination
Is your bus paratransit lift not working properly? Do you need assistance with fixing it? You should always look for certified technicians who will get the job done right. Here at The Bus Centre, we have some of the finest technicians who are certified in both Braun and Ricon lift repair for commercial and school buses.
Common Problems with Wheelchair Lifts
As a bus owner or operator with a lift, you need to keep it in top condition, because being unable to provide wheelchair service to your riders isn’t an option. Common issues may arise, and sometimes, uncommon issues may surface. We are well-versed in diagnostics and repair, whether you run a Braun, Ricon, or a lesser-known brand. No issue is too big or too small for us at The Bus Centre; you can rely on us to service your wheelchair lift in swift and efficient ways.
The most common issue is an electrical one. These can also be the most pressing issues because further problems may arise as a result. It’s important if you notice a problem with your lift, you should reach out to us right away. Don’t wait for it to get worse; even if it’s just a minor problem now, it may develop into a more serious problem.
You can give us a call today and we may help you diagnose the issue over the phone. Of course, it is best to have us take a look at your lift in person, because some problems are best diagnosed when our certified technicians can see all the components.
Let us Restore your Unit
At The Bus Centre, we have an extensive knowledge of buses and their components. We also have an extensive parts department, so you can trust that we either have the parts for your project, or we can acquire them easily. Our service department is comprised of professionals who know buses and know how to fix them.
Because of misuse, heavier loads (such as individuals with those battery-powered wheelchairs), or simply because of time, lifts can have normal wear and tear, or even more serious issues. It’s important to let us look at your lift if you notice any changes in its functionality. We will assess and diagnose the problem, and then we will recommend solutions.
If you have determined that repair is the best route to take, we can start the process quickly because we have the parts in stock for school bus and commercial bus lifts. All we need is your go-ahead and we’ll get started. The process is typically quite fast, so we can get you back on the road confidently and quickly.
Knowing When to Replace
We may, through our assessment, end up recommending that you replace instead of repair. If it becomes more cost-effective to replace rather than repair, that’s just a no-brainer. You can benefit from having a new unit instead of repairing an older one for more money. And we have new units ready to go.
There may also be those “hidden costs” of repairing your unit, and we’ll happily walk you through regular maintenance and service recommendations as well as help you get warranty information if needed. Our goal is to give your wheelchair lift a longer lifespan, help you manage repair costs, and reduce the likelihood of breakdowns with proactive maintenance – we are certified experts whether your bus is outfitted with a Braun lift or a Ricon lift.
You may also have a need for a unit that can carry a heavier load. As wheelchairs get more advanced, their weight may also increase, and using an old lift may no longer be practical or safe. In these instances, we’d recommend replacing your unit so you can keep your passengers safe and comfortable on the road.
We’ll always be honest with you about our recommendations, giving you our expert opinion and advice. We won’t try to sell you a new lift if repair is the best route to take. Some lifts may only have minor issues that are best resolved with a simple repair. Because our satisfied customers know and trust us to be straightforward, knowledgeable, and helpful, you can, too.
