A-Z BUS SALES HISTORICAL SNAP SHOT

Founded in 1975 and operating under the name, Arizona Bus Sales, the original location allowed for an affordable beginning. However, Arizona Bus Sales quickly out grew their first location, causing them to move to a larger facility that allowed the bus dealership to start offering parts and bus service repairs.

A-Z BUS HISTORY

The company was founded in 1976 by George Tillery in Phoenix, Arizona. First as a school bus distributorship, Arizona Bus Sales then added Commercial minibuses in the late 1970’s to be followed by reconditioning and selling motor-coaches a few years later.

In 1984 Arizona Bus Sales expanded into Southern California with the establishment of A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. in Ontario. Three years later, Blue Bird, the premier school and commercial bus manufacturer in the United States, awarded their Southern California distributorship to A-Z Bus Sales. These increased opportunities for school and commercial bus sales required a consolidation of operations. As a result of these events, a nine-acre site located in Colton was created to better service increased customer needs.

Only a decade after expanding into California, A-Z Bus Sales acquired the Blue Bird distributorship for Northern California in Sacramento. California was then united under a single distributorship for both school and commercial buses for Blue Bird. The company further expanded in 1995 when it was awarded the Hawaii territory for Blue Bird.

A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. now distributes buses in two states, with large parts warehouses, service facilities and sales organizations in Southern and Northern California. Our Colton and Sacramento facilities include dedicated training areas for our customers’ monthly mechanics’ training workshops.

What has stimulated A-Z Bus Sales’ seemingly nonstop growth? Two factors: Customer Service and Customer Loyalty. The company’s solid philosophy regarding sales and service, coupled with a dedication to excellence, has helped A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. build a trustworthy reputation.

With a variety of products and a solid support staff assisting energetic salespeople, it is not surprising A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. has been the recipient of Blue Bird’s coveted “President’s Award” for outstanding product representation every year since 1988.

A-Z Bus Sales now represents Blue Bird, Micro Bird by Girardin, Collins Bus, and Several commercial bus manufactures in the two states. In addition, our service departments have ASE qualified paint, mechanical and body technicians on staff. A-Z Service and Parts Centers are affiliated with Caterpillar Engines, Cummins Engines, John Deere Engines, Allison Transmissions, Ricon and Braun Wheelchair Lifts, Telma Driveline Retarders, Trans/Air and A/C Carrier air conditioning.With award-winning sales and service in California and Hawaii, energetic employees and hard-to match diversity in an ever-changing industry, A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. continues to be positioned to meet your transportation needs today and down the road…“All the Best from A-Z”
