Marketing Campaigns and Advertising Buses
Are you feeling creative?
We are not afraid of carrying out radical changes to our hire buses to meet our customers` specific requirements : a second staircase to improve visitor through-flow, a roof platform for a TV transmitter dish, a metallic pink paint job. Our designer can discuss your aims and help create the ideal concept for you!
Among our sizeable fleet we have many buses adapted to meet Continental regulations, not to mention experienced drivers and staff with linguistic skills, plus a network of field agents to take care of local organisational details. British buses – especially the classic Routemasters and Lodekkas – are a by-word for reliability; abroad, they are perceived as exotic, retro and are ultra effective branding/marketing tools.
We`ve done campaigns with our promotional buses in countries they were never designed for: to Israel for Colgate, coast to coast USA (and back) for Nokia. A Tour de France for Carrefour Supermarkets and a London Routemaster to Brazil for the Olympics. A classic Leyland to Beijing for MINI and a veteran Bristol to Berlin for Hewlett Packard. Instant Nescafe to Italy and Pimms to Athens. A wide range of products, loads of style.
“For four years running the London Bus Export Company have provided CLIC Sargent with a double-decker to use as a vintage clothing shop at the Glastonbury Festival. The bus reflects the nature of the stock we sell and is a huge talking point, much loved by festival-goers. Coordinating delivery of a double-decker bus into the heart of a huge festival site is no small challenge, but whatever the weather we have always found the company’s drivers to be amazingly cheerful and willing to go the extra mile (literally), while the admin support is always professional and courteous. Using a vintage bus to showcase our shop really enables us to stand out from other stalls and has enabled CLIC Sargent to raise more than £30,000 to support children and young people with cancer”
Jeremy Lune, CLIC Sargent
Our buses can be adapted for sampling food and beverages with a spacious kitchen and outside serving point. Areas for display and operation of technical products and equipment can be easily provided upon request Meanwhile, a top deck can be assigned as either a practical or luxurious hospitality suite for your clients to digest your sales message in comfort… just tell us what you’re looking for and our helpful team will provide you with expert assistance in maximising the impact of your road-show/campaign.
Our exhibition buses can offer generous showroom space, hospitality, kitchen, w.c. and a welcoming exterior awning. A bus is a self-contained unit for outside events – why spend big money on single-event exhibition stand fitting? For advertising products in a uniquely funky and retro way, they’re an absolute winner and always attract a crowd. At the end of the event just close the doors and drive it off to your next show – no time wasted packing everything up again.
