Re: Insurance on my Personal Bus

Re: Insurance on my Personal Bus

I went online to progressive and the website says they don't insure school bus conversions.

Re: Insurance on my Personal Bus

In Utah, my agent said that on one would insure a bus conversion except GMAC. So I joined Good Sams for their discount and got collision for slightly over 300$ a year.

Good Luck.

Re: Insurance on my Personal Bus

Progressive told me they would not insure my e350 period. Not as a bus, rv, or van, not even as a cab & chassis. I went to 6 different insurance companies and 3 would not touch it just due to its weight. 2 gave me outrageous quotes and wanted 6-12 months paid upfront. I finally just gave up and got plpd / liability insurance and I'm paying $236/month! What can I do to change that? I'm getting shafted!

Re: Insurance on my Personal Bus

I contacted a local progressive deale, they will insure a bus, commercial insurance, but not used as commercial...about 700 yr, so you might want to ask them about that
