Customer Testimonials

We recently used Michaud Bus Appraisals’ services when we needed an updated value for our fleet of family owned Prevost Motorcoaches. They were prompt, courteous and most importantly accurate. We have worked with Spike and his son in the past when we needed some late model used coaches and I will say their appraisal service is just as good as their used coach service. Good guys who I recommend.

I just wanted to express our gratitude for the work your company provided to the Greater Hartford Transit District by appraising our fleet of coaches. Your company came highly recommended by a group of private transit providers as experts in your field, and you were certainly qualified to perform the work that we needed done. We were very impressed with your professionalism, quick response, and reasonable price. You were able to modify your schedule in order to provide a service without interrupting the daily operation of our vehicles. The work was done in a timely fashion and the report was accurate, detailed, and easy to understand. Once again thanks you so much on behalf of the GHTD.

James "Spike" Michaud and his team at Michaud Bus Appraisals are nothing short of top notch. When we needed an entire fleet of buses located in Pennsylvania to be appraised during the month of December on very short notice, James's team made it happen. In fact, James drove to Pennsylvania through a major snow storm that shut down most of the Eastern seaboard to personally get the job done. The service they provide is fast and professional. Their appraisals are thorough and accurate, and their rates are very reasonable. After our great experience using Michaud Bus Appraisals, we don't work with anyone else.

Spike Michaud of Michaud Bus Appraisals, LLC. has done bus appraisals for us in the past and we have been very happy with the fast and friendly service. Spike came to our facility here in Old Town to personally inspect the buses. He did a thorough job that our bank we were doing business really liked. I would recommend Michaud Bus Appraisals, LLC to anyone who needs a good fair appraisal.

Our bank has used Michaud Bus Appraisals, LLC over the past two years to obtain appraised values on used bus inventory for one of our top customers. They are very special people to work with...very courteous and knowledgeable. And the best part was their quick turnaround time and very reasonable fees. They made life easy for us.

I have personally known and done business with Spike Michaud for over 20 years; first with my former company, Pawtuxet Valley Bus Lines, and now with Archway Bus Transportation. Most recently, Spike did an appraisal of my fleet for a bank which I was dealing with to do a refinance deal. Mr. Michaud’s prompt response, quick turn around and professionalism helped me secure the loan. The appraised values were accepted by the lending institution; who were also impressed with the entire appraisal report. I was personally satisfied with the attention to detail, accuracy and fees charged to do the appraisal package.

Archway Bus would recommend Michaud Bus Appraisal’s to any business in need of their services. Their knowledge of our industry is evident. I will call on them again when the opportunity arises.

As always, your annual appraisal of our fleet is very professional. We use it as a tool with both our banks and insurance companies if there is a question on bus values.
