Re: Can you negotiate price of a bus?
You can base it on things like:
scrap steel price @10.50 a hundred lbs.->if it is 10k lbs. = 1050 total
scrap steel price @10.50 a hundred lbs.->if it is 16k lbs. = 1680 total
good shape steer tires are worth about 150 each->300 total
good shape recaps about 50 each->200 total
engine and trans if separated depends so this will give you an idea, if they say we can scrap it out for more than that
I paid $3500 for mine, scrap was at 11.50 a hundred lbs. and had great tires all around with no caps and ran great, plus bonus was rusted out stairwell (easy fix for me)
you can negotiate for sure, what are specs on buses? any pictures?
