Smile Skoolie in project from Quebec !

Hi ppl !

Since 2 months, I'm watching a loooot of Youtube videos and I'm decided now ! I found "the perfect school bus" (means, with all the specifications I wanted like flat nose, air suspensions/brakes, trunks of each sides) and I should buy it very soon. I try to have some informations with the SAAQ (Quebec Automobile Insurance Corporation) and my insurance and it's not easy to collect all those informations (and it's just the beginning ...).

I can have a transit from the seller to the "point of transformation" for one day (I try to have the similar thing with my insurance).

So if there are another people in Quebec who wants to talk here about this big project, feel free to message me here or in PM

Cya !

I'm in Ontario. Message me if you ever want some advice or my thoughts, I'll be happy to do what I can.

I'm having a hard time finding insurance as well. I have not run into a pass that allows transit from the point or purchase to point of transformation...that would be handy.

So far my best lead is with Allstate. Will let you know how it works out. Got a quote from Alfa Insurance for $200/mo when converted. $400/mo while converting. Too high for me.

Thank you

What kind of bus do you have? Where are you in the conversion?

$200 or $400 are very expensive.. I hope my insurance will find a better price. I know a guy in Laval who pay about $60/month (Promutuel) for a school bus converted in RV in 1999/2000 I think. Maybe you can check with them.

I have a 1998 9 row, flat-nose Thomas TC2000. 5.9 cummins, 545 tranny.

I agree...it is prohibitively expensive. My best quote was $585/yr which I wanted to jump on, but that was for a completed conversion and they will not cover the bus as-is. I just heard from them that they would not cover me. I'm going to try Promutuel. They insured your bus as a school bus, so that you could drive it home? That seems to be my biggest obstacle now.

All the best,
Chris Fuller

I don't have this insurance for now, it's the guy that I know in Laval, but yes, it's for the complete conversion. For me, I must to pick up the bus nearly Quebec and go back to the Monteregie. I can drive the school bus without any special license (limited for a "deplacement" an with 3 passagers max). I'm waiting for the insurance broker for a quote only for one day.

After that, I will let the bus in a yard without registration/insurance until the bus will be convert and then ask to my insurance.

$585/yr is a good price I guess
