Custom Bus Australia has just delivered our school / charter SB50 with an IVECO Delta chassis to Peter Kimpton in Wagga Wagga. Peter is a rural operator and his decision to purchase both Custom and IVECO were made up of a number of factors. Peter stated that ‘reliability, service, price, resale and back up were the main factors that lead to my decision to buy a Custom SB50 with an IVECO chassis. IVECO has a service centre here in town and Custom’s mobile service team (Custom Care) means that I will be well looked after for years to come and I will benefit with reduced down time for maintenance. Being a rural operator, this was very important to me.’
