Pre-Costs

Where did you purchase and store your bus, and how much did it all cost?

one I bought from a dealer for 5k , the second one came from an auction for 1800 bucks.. then all the upgrades started... Air-conditioning, digital dashes, tires, paint, transmission, networking equipment, computers... probably 20k combined in upgrades between both busses over a 2 year period.

I store them both for about $150 a month total in a covered facility

That's a good price on storage for 2 buses. Around here it's a bit more, my lot being 189 for 1 covered spot, 40 x 12. U-Haul charges 139 for a outdoor uncovered spot.

mine are at U-haul. covered spots.. since they are short busses I did the 10x30 spots.. plus i have an inside storage unit.. im on some kind of package deal with the spots and the inside storage locker.. thing I learned about U-haul is I guess they are all individually owned so there is a lot of variance in the services and pricing from one to another...

this one is in an old "meijer' store which was like a walmart supercenter before walmart had supercenters.. they built a bigger and better meijer so this one got closed.. it sat empty for a long time so im guessing they got the property on the cheap and can offer competitive rates
