Buses For Sale - Classifieds

Good afternoon:
Other than this site, Ebay and good ole Craigslist does anyone know of other webs sites that sell converted school buses?
Cheers,
Wayne.

Might try http://www.publicsurplus.com.

(I didn't see converted, so this site probably won't help.)

I use a similar method to search nationwide on Craigslist (which Craigslist itself doesn't let you do). I enter the following into the Google search window:

"Dodge school bus" site:craigslist.org

Put whatever you want, e.g., "Thomas Saf-T-Liner," in place of "Dodge school bus." Use quotes and don't put a space between the colon and "craigslist.org." I've seen buses for sale as far away as Fairbanks, Alaska. If I don't use the quotes, the results will be craigslist listings that include a 2010 Dodge Challenger mixed in with someone's "Magic School Bus" VHS tape collection.

Do follow precautions against avoiding scams; I doubt that honest craigslist sellers will deal with someone they can't meet face-2-face. But it did get me as close as I've ever gotten to a bus I could buy: a good one in Iowa that I probably would have missed otherwise. Darn shame the owner couldn't meet my price. Patience is a virtue.

This. Ever since craigslist started charging for ads everybody left and went to Facebook. Which sucks since their sorting algorithim is beyond horrible and I routinely miss good ads in my area.

The only people on Craiglist these days are the price gougers and scammers.

Agreed. I got my bus off Facebook marketplace painlessly. It's the new Craigslist, in my humble opinion.
