Mid summer school districts seem to release busses in flocks making supply and demand more in your favor. We bid when there were 12 busses listed on 4th of July weekend while everyone was probably camping or with family. Best of luck!! ❤️🤞

Summer is definitely the peak time for schools selling off their old buses.

... and we can wait.

In the meantime, I'll keep placing bids on suitable buses, at a price I want to pay. We might just get lucky.

I watched two on GovDeals last night. Each had two bidders fighting it out and they both bid to $5000, which was about $2000 more than they should have sold for.

Even at $3000 it would still have cost around $700 to get it home, so I was just a spectator.
