Vehicle Description

Diamond Coach VIP 2500

Fast Fact: Diamond Buses provide incredible cost-savings and resale value. Our design answers the two biggest issues with reselling a bus: the cost of repairs, and the look, or quality of the used bus.

First, Diamond buses do not fade, and do not need to be repainted. You can restore the original finish by simply hand-washing and applying a light buff job to the exterior. In contrast, metal buses require re-painting to cover fading and rust at the time of resale.

Second, Diamond buses resist dings, scrapes, bumps and scratches better than metal due to the gel coat exterior. As a result, Diamond buses look newer at resale than their counterparts.
