For the Veterans where are the best on- line places to actually buy a bus? Or any pla

Hey y'all, where are the best places to find busses on-line or anywhere in the South East? I've seen govdeals.com and craigslist, are their any other places?

Mainly looking I'm Bama, Ga, Nc
SC, (MS) because that's my running area (trucking) and would be easy for me to pick-up with truck.


Thanks

Hey Cherry,

You should also look at: Public Surplus: Government Surplus Auctions

As far as SE buses go, take a look at the "Non-affiliated buses for sale - thread" and you will get some good info regarding FL and GA buses. You may do well to look further North in order to find generally better equipped & better quality buses.

I bough mine from GovDeals in Oregon. Zero rust & well equipped. Gotta love the West Coast buses.

Best of luck with your search!

I phoned on 6 of them and every one had a CAT motor.

I did enjoy speaking with some very friendly and helpful folks and they all talk normal.

Titles can be misleading. There is a thread out there titled something like "DT-466 Manual". I get excited every time it pops up... Oh boy! DT-466 and a 10 speed!! I want one... Wrong... The thread is discussing a service manual.....
