Powered by DAF

The engines are supplied via DAF Components, the department responsible for marketing and sales of the engines to Original Equipment Manufacturers.

By the way, DAF is the only independent engine manufacturer in Europe i.e. not making its own coaches/buses. In Europe DAF is represented in almost 1000 well-distributed strategic locations: as such, there is always a DAF dealership close by.  For the additional maintenance and repair of specific components  - such as toilet facilities, catering and on-board audio and video equipment - Wessex DAF is one of the 150 specialised 'DAF Coach & Bus Service' dealers strategically situated along the main routes in Europe.

Coach and bus services

Optimal vehicle availability

Whether maintenance is planned or unplanned, a coach or bus must spend the shortest time possible in the workshop. Wessex DAF understand that time is money for our customers. Optimum availability of ‘DAF Genuine Parts’ is therefore vital.

Wessex DAF has fast access to the right driveline parts for every DAF powered vehicle.
TRP the pone-stop shop

TRP – the one stop-shop

TRP, the unique parts programme developed by DAF to provide truck operators with a ‘one-stop shop’ facility for a current array of 31,000 maintenance products, is now available to the coach and bus sector.
Working alongside the DAF genuine parts programme, TRP includes a comprehensive range of ‘workshop consumables’ and ‘All Makes’ fast moving items such as filters, batteries and wiper blades applicable to coaches and buses.


Coach ITS

International Breakdown Service (ITS)

"Coaches powered by DAF engines will have the very best support anywhere in Europe,” that is the DAF promise. Wessex DAF is one of the growing number of Bus and Coach Specialists which has emerged from the 1,000 DAF ITS service dealers, that cover all major routes and form a Euro-wide support network providing assistance for coaches 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

A single telephone call to the ITS centre is all that’s needed to put DAF back-up into operation. At the other end of the line is a team that cannot only speak all European languages they also know what they are talking about when it comes to coaches.

In fact, although some 70 per cent of problems are not even related to the drive-line DAF mechanics usually have the experience and know-how to find a solution. If they can’t, they know who and where is the nearest specialist who can.

Importantly, coach assistance from ITS which is prioritized, also extends to the driver and his/her passengers. Arrangements can be made to carry out repairs when the coach is not in use (e.g. a hotel or restaurant). Similarly, in the event of a major breakdown, accommodation or a replacement coach can be organized.

In short, whatever is needed to solve a problem or get a coach and its passengers back on the road with minimum delay. Often copied but never equalled, ITS is on stand-by day and night, 365 days a year.
