Coaches can be plain and functional or well equipped and luxurious, but no matter the level of attention which has been paid to the small details, they all do one thing well and that is to transport lots of passengers in comfort. There are many used coaches on offer which started out in the service of a local council or other public body, while others have been owned by private concerns and used commercially. And whichever world your potential purchase used to operate in, you should expect to inspect its systems and features rigorously, especially if you are hoping to get the vehicle on the road as quickly as possible.
For more compact coaches with fewer than 30 seats on board, look out for common features such as a chair lift which may be based on hydraulics. Problems with hydraulic systems might manifest themselves in a number of ways, whether through worn seals or obvious leaks. And so to avoid having to repair these at your own expense later on, make sure these are highlighted to the seller so that something can be done as soon as possible.

Bigger coaches built for luxury as well as utility can have around 50 seats on board and may also have a litany of other features to consider. This might include things such as a full toilet, drink-making facilities and air conditioning. If these functions have had a lot of use in the past, this may be apparent in the way they operate, so bear this in mind when you consider the coach in question. It will have served tens of thousands of passengers over hundreds of thousands of miles in many cases, although even models which have been in service for more than two decades can still be perfectly operational. It is just a matter of knowing what you are letting yourself in for.
Small and large coaches alike can have all the features in the world, but if the seating is in disrepair then their desirability is greatly affected. So check not only that every seat advertised is present and correct, but also that things such as the upholstery are in a good condition. The kind of use that a coach must face means that marks, scuffs and tears are all to be expected, although some sellers may have chosen to replace the seating over time. If these vehicles are built by major manufacturers, then finding spares and replacements should not be difficult, so you may want to avoid the more obscure makes and models for this reason.
Also worth putting on your inventory of things to check and consider when selecting a coach is the type of storage that is on offer and the condition that it is in. Large luxury coaches often provide both overhead storage for smaller bags as well as compartments built into the body which can accommodate much bigger luggage loads. Ensuring these are all working well is just as important as checking out the engine, steering, suspension and brakes.
