MCI announces open houses, online auction

Posted on April 4, 2011

Motorcoach operators and their staff members are invited to any of the three open-houses MCI Sales and Service Centers will host at the following locations:

  • Blackwood, N.J. (near Philadelphia) - April 5
  • Los Alamitos, Calif. (near Los Angeles) - April 13
  • Des Plaines, Ill. (near Chicago) - April 26

Attendees will find "super savings" on pre-owned coaches available through MCI's Pre-owned Plus program, which offers customers a wide range of budget and model choices, including MCI's Certified ++ and Select + pre-owned coaches that are come with warranties and maintenance options. The day will also include chances at prizes and lunch, which will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at all locations. Call I-877 Buy MCI (428-9624) to speak to MCI's Coach Concierge for more information.

Also, on April 27 and April 28, for the first time ever, MCI will auction off surplus pre-owned coach inventory online through www.TheBranfordGroup.com. Up to 45 pre-owned coaches will be auctioned off online with the bidding starting on April 27 at 6:00 a.m. and closing April 28 at 11:00 a.m. (EST).

"The online auction presents a rare opportunity for operators," said Brent Maitland, vice president of MCI Pre-owned coach. "Both the open-houses and online auction will make it easier for operators to get the equipment they want and need in time for the busy season ahead. There's never been a better time to buy a pre-owned MCI."

Customers who buy a pre-owned MCI coach from MCI get access to the same after-sale service network as MCI new-coach customers. That means 24-7 Emergency Roadside Assistance, comprehensive technical support, award-winning training, MCI's online Parts Store, service centers across the U.S. and Canada, and an entire team of coach professionals.
