We found Bronte on Facebook marketplace after a lengthy search online. We spent nearly 12 months watching various online marketplaces (including Gumtree, eBay, Facebook and Bus News). Keiran maintained a detailed spreadsheet of all buses that we enquired about, which included all specifications, pricing and notes. It helped us to narrow down our search to certain types of buses! Before we found Bronte, we had already narrowed down our search to the Hino RG230 with Starliner body.
