Move the bus to to local storage.

We purchased an out of state bus that required a CDL. The Transit Authority selling the bus was willing to move it off their lot to a local RV storage facility that I rented a space in as part of the sale. It is 700 miles away (round trip) in another State. Intend to MH the bus where it sits and then bring it to home state legally.
Our first solution was to hire a driver but too much liability involved.

I WOULD gladly sell you my 99 Thomas for $4500 and I'm right here in Jacksonville. Message me or repost if any of you want it. I just realized a school bus does not fit my personality as much as I thought.

Where in Washington is the bus - I could possibly meet you out there and drive the bus off the lot for you to continue on to NC. I am in Montana.
I have a CDL-B with Passenger Endorsement and Airbrakes.

Thanks!
I live in fayetteville, I have cdl, I'll do it

Keep in mind, folks, the dealer will not release to just ANY CDL holder -- they insist on a Class B with P endorsement.

Same here, CDL-A plus P... And I'm encouraged by the number of people here who do! I know its not really necessary for a skoolie/rv owner to have it but as I've tried to convey in other threads about newbs picking up their future-skoolie technically it still meets the definition of a commercial vehicle until you get it home, gut it, do whatever your state requires to re-classify it as an rv and then re-title it. And honestly I think the only reason giant rvs don't require special licensing is all the octogenarian quadruple bypass survivors who buy them but could never pass a DOT physical. Without an rv loophole the whole industry would collapse!
