PLS is the UK-leading name in the design, manufacture and maintenance of powered lifts and ramps for accessible coaches and buses. PLS has provided an unsurpassed level of service and product innovation since 1990 and will be showcasing three lifts from its market-leading range on stand J92. Exhibiting as part of Mobility Networks for the first time at Eurobus this year, PLS will also demonstrate the holistic package of servicing and maintenance it provides all coach, bus and mini-bus operators across the UK.
Throughout Eurobus, the PLS servicing and maintenance control room will be located at the NEC to demonstrate how its comprehensive service is managed. Visitors to stand J92 will be able to watch how coach operators are supported nationwide by a team of highly co-ordinated engineers who provide onsite maintenance for a variety of coach fleet sizes and types. The display will include live tracker boards to show the current position of PLS engineers and technical specialists will be on-hand to answer questions in ‘real-time’ regarding lift repairs and servicing.
PLS is unique in the coach and bus sector as it effectively combines manufacturing of awarding-winning AccessTM lifts with comprehensive servicing. This complete package, from product design and installation through to warranty cover and technical support, is unsurpassed within the industry and delivers significant benefits to fleet managers and specifiers. Through one contact, coach operators have access to a total programme of flexible support and product provision when choosing PLS – resulting in time and cost saving efficiencies. Regular servicing by PLS ensures vehicles are certified and fully legal, whilst VOR time is minimised through preventative maintenance and intelligent scheduling.
PLS warranty packages are tailor-made to suit all individual fleet requirements in terms of coach or bus type, age, location and fleet size. Dependent on the levels and longevity of support required, packages can include LOLER service and weight tests, a 24-hour support line and full cover on all parts and labour expenses. There is a choice between fixed price servicing, full maintenance contracts and emergency call-outs within the UK mainland – all delivered by PLS engineers with impeccable professionalism and knowledge.
