Hello got a call from a bus company in Nashville. (well actually their sister company Anchor Towing!)

Seems this AYR company has a problem with one of their MCI's and it had to be towed into MCI's service center in Lebanon, TN.

We are picking up their group in the AM.
I was just wondering if any of you have any knowledge
About them!

They are just up the road from me but aside from seeing their coaches on the road from time to time, I haven't dealt with them

You should be ok, BK.

As noted, good family business, steadily moving up the food chain over the years.

They gave up the school bus part of their operation some years ago now, to focus on the coach side.

If you run into any trouble, I'd be shocked, and, I'd like to hear about it.

happy coaching!

BW I agree they seem to be a stable outfit.
At the time of my request I had no info to go by on them except their website. And we all know that a website can be misleading.
But as of this morning I was able to verify their status with the AMA & the UMA both organizations of which we belong to also! They have a good reputation among these organizations & they paid dad in cash! (cash is still good for the time being here in TN!)
Dad thinks they got there coach fixed as there are now 7 of there coaches in the parking lot vs. the 6 earlier.  They told him they would just as soon let him finish today's shuttles so it won't confuse the passengers as to which as to get on. 
Thanks for the reply. Grin
