Good Afternoon Donna,
I would like to take a minute to thank you and your service team for all that you do to help my shop. As you may or may not know I have been working at Polk schools for the last 23 years and 18 of those years I have been a service manager. I have seen a lot of change not only with the Thomas bus brand but with the service that we have received from Thomas bus. When Glen and Lori Matthews came on the scene and met with Polk they told us what they could do for our district, I will admit I was skeptical. But WOW have they proven me wrong! In my opinion as a service manager, anyone can sell a bus...But Service is what sells a Dealership!
The team that Glen and Lori has put together at Matthews Bus Florida is second to none. I know that if I need anything, all I have to do is call, and you know what? ...someone answers that phone call! That may not sound like much, but when you call and get voice mails and unreturned phone calls, send emails and never get reply’s, it matters a lot.
I am proud of MY Matthews Bus team that helps me keep my buses on the road providing Safe and Reliable transportation for the students of Polk County.

Sincerely,

Greg Pitts

Matthews has hands down the best customer service of our 3 major dealers/vendors when dealing with warranty issues. All warranty service emails are sent to Donna Matura and always answered back quickly when she expects a technician(s) to be out to resolve an issue. If I have a unique issue and not certain who to send an email to, Donna is my "go-to" as she can usually answer my questions/concerns. If not, she knows who can. Jason and/or Roberto are in most cases here same day or within a few days after notifying MBA with a warranty issue. MBA has helped us out in servicing Cummins engines on Blue Bird buses as the dealer was unable to make it out to us by a certain time. Reena, Yesenia and Dennis are our contacts for requesting warranty parts/claim #s. All 3 are great as they quickly reply and get the part out. Often parts are requested Next-Day Air and they’ve been able to get them to us ASAP so that we could get a bus back in service. With all 3 major bus manufactures all using the same Cummins/Allison drive train, I feel that the quality of the 3 buses are very close. The service we get from Matthew Bus for our warranty buses is top notch, therefore making Thomas my most highly recommended bus to purchase.

Thanks,

Good afternoon Donna,


I would like to commend you and your staff of Techs on the prompt and professional service your company provides for us. We are a small school district with limited resources and your assistance in our operation truly exhibits your company’s commitment in service after the sale. We have had other brands of buses in the past and have never had the amount of support your department delivers. The techs are fully dedicated in every job performed and are willing to go the extra mile without hesitation. We also have never had a "come back" from any work that they have performed. Being the small size we are, it is important that we can depend on Matthews Bus for all our needs and service without having to shop around.We look forward to many more years of worry free service as we will continue to keep the C2’s in our fleet.


Thank you,

Glenn and Lori,



Congratulations to you and Team Matthews for walking away with The Thomas Built Buses Dealer Of The Year Award during your recent trip to Denver! What an outstanding accolade for a most phenomenal operation. We here in the Volusia County School District could have predicted Matthews as the winner and for many reasons and are proud to be associated with such a class group of professionals. As you and I have shared before, there are many components involved in the making of a championship team with the kind and watchful care and treatment of one’s employees and customers being right at the top of the list. Matthews Buses is the latest example of the fulfillment of the principle: "you reap what you sow." The hard work, diligence and character of the dynamic leadership that begins with the two of you has set the pace and level of expectation for your award winning company and now you are on the receiving end of your investment of energy and excellence.
Wishing you continued success.

Sincerely,

Mitch Moyer
Director of Transportation

Donna,

Thank you and your company for sending down your tech Roberto on almost a weekly bases.

I think Roberto is one of your top two techs out of the many that you have at Matthews Buses.

Roberto trouble shoots and find the issues with out buses and keeps them running.

I have not found anything that he cannot repair yet.
Thanks again,
