“Oak Hill School purchased 3 Gasoline Vision buses in 2017. Tommy and Stephen have always had parts ordered and ready for us relatively fast. Joel in the service department has always worked around our route schedule and been able to perform oil changes and routine service without disrupting our bus ourtes or causing the school to use our spare bus. The work has always been excellent, and if we have had an issue, the problem has been corrected immediately! We usually try and schedule routine maintenance 2 times per school year. Joel has made a few special accomodations and got us in early so we haven’t had to leave buses over a holiday or a break. We appreciate him going the extra mile to help us out! In times where we have been in a pinch a service mechanic has come to the school and correct recalls for us in order to keep our buses on the read! This is a huge plus for us!” – Jeff F.

“We have purchased 6 new buses from Central States, and all employees, from Chuck/Joel to the mechanics, have been awesome at keeping us happy. We were recently in an accident with one of the buses, and Joel helped us so much dealing with the insurance, which we all know can be a pain. He went over and beyond to get our bus back to state codes; thank you so much for all your work and efforts.” – Kim E.
