Business Details


In 2007 this charter bus hire business began serving Melbourne environs and has enjoyed continual and steady growth. From the original 5 buses it was downsized to one bus over a period of time for lifestyle and management reasons, with the result of profitability and efficiency increasing and continuing to do so. This business is well placed in a strong and increasing bus operator market with ample opportunity to grow and develop as far as one would want.

The business is being put on the market at $150,000 for a quick sale as the owner moves toward retirement.
Business is sourced from existing customers and website presence.
Bookings, invoicing, operations and administration is efficiently run through Coach Management software and further detailed booking information is maintained.

Account payments are received before hire dates with exception of schools and the occasional account thus allowing minimal accounts follow up.

The business is now home based whereas it used to be run from a depot when operating several buses. The business operates 7 days a week and bookings are programmed to enable time off.

Vehicle programmed maintenance and servicing is outsourced to a mechanical workshop while cleaning and light maintenance and repairs are carried out by the owner.

Market / Customer:
Marketing is carried out mainly through two websites bringing consistently high ranking and good enquiry level. The main site has recently been upgraded and mobile-friendly enhanced. Mail outs, contact with existing customers and personal canvassing is also utilized. A good social media presence is maintained.

Schools are a stable part of regular customers developed earlier when running several buses.

Approximately 30% of bookings are repeat business.

Types of customers are: corporate, private, schools, seniors, church and sports groups, businesses, universities, government, event organizers, conventions and accommodation venues as well as tour operators and other bus operators.
