H.A. DeHart was the only bus company who volunteered to come to my office and go through the build out and purchasing process step by step. Their prices were competitive, they were quick to respond to any email or phone inquiry, and delivered right on time. Best of all, our drivers love driving these buses, and our students love traveling in them.

This past summer the school district purchased two vehicles through H.A. DeHart & Sons and with your direct professional assistance we were able to meet our deadline for September 2018.  As you handled our account directly, we were provided with a smooth transition for processing the necessary documentation in a timely manner and your communications with the district was direct and professional. We would gladly work with you on any future purchases if necessary.

Decorative: fancy-quoteDecade after decade, Thomas Built Buses has followed one simple philosophy: design and build the kind of bus we’d want our own children to ride in. It’s a simple idea and it works. Passenger safety is our number one priority and every school bus we manufacture meets or exceeds all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for school buses.
