MCI holds Reliability Rally Open Houses

Spring and summer will bring coach deals, test-drives, special discounts, training, supplier partner educational sessions, food, fun, free baseball tickets and more, compliments of MCI Sales and Service Centers' open-house events. MCI's winning team will be on-site, including sales, service and support, along with supplier partners and top-selling coaches from MCI and Setra.

MCI will host one-day open houses on April 28 in Dallas; May 13 in Des Plaines, Illinois; May 21 in Los Alamitos, California; June 9 in Blackwood, New Jersey; June 30 in Winter Garden, Florida; and October 13 in Montreal, Quebec.

Open-house deals will include down-payment discounts on demos and in-stock inventory; 10 percent off of parts purchased at the event; a discounted $59 hourly labor rate on service scheduled during the open house; and $5,000 off any pre-owned coach purchased during the open house.

MCI sales representatives will also arrange MCI and Setra test rides.

"We're coming off of a very successful trade-show season, and we want to make sure all operators — not just those who came to UMA Expo New Orleans and Marketplace in St. Louis — get a chance to explore our latest models and see how well our new ZF independent front suspension and Bendix Wingman adaptive cruise control and braking perform on our J4500," says Brent Maitland, vice president of marketing and product planning. "Also, for customers near our Des Plaines and Montreal Sales and Service Centers, these open houses offer a great opportunity to see MCI's newest repair capabilities. Similar to our Rally events last year, these will be a great way for our customers to engage and learn in a hands-on environment. We have an even stronger lineup from our supplier partners, so they will be a value to customers."

MCI technical experts will additionally conduct technician training sessions, and operators will be able to learn more about MCI and Setra features via presentations and supplier updates.

And, of course, there will be lunch and prize drawings.

"It's going to be a great, open, friendly event," says Maitland. "Everyone should be able to learn something that makes a difference in their business. We encourage any operator to stop by and bring their team, from mechanics to drivers."
