Oops, MST, so a few more hours.

Weird, i was able to log in with Firefox. Those buses are getting 0 attention, wouldn't be surprised if they only go up a couple hundred from their current price.

Presumably nobody is looking at them because they're they're not $5000 gas powered cutaways or MaxxForce7 buses which are all the rage right now.

They all look like low roof but understorage and Allison 2000s makes them a decent propsition. I'd probably go for the T444E buses over the Freightliners with the MBEs though.

The one I got was on GD, not PS. I'll check out PS and see, but they can't list them in both places.

Buses on PS are from a different city than the GD ones. But they are still under $500 ($455) for a 2002 IC. I don't know why people say they can't find a decent price, there's lots of them around. 6 buses in the next few hours at around $500.

I'm telling you man, nobody is interested in buying decent buses right now. It's all gas motors and 7.3 IDIs. Some gal on Facebook just bought a MaxxForce7 bus. People are nutty lately.

Would those transit buses from Alexandria be any good? If I had the money, time & non-broken wrist I might have been on one of those auctions

I might jump on a couple of these if they stay where they are. They will work me to remove the bus after the new year. They said they had little use for the 52 passenger buses, so they are liquidating them.

11 days to go, at least 9 days before I'd pay much attention.

I wish I had space to resell buses. How many can you turn over without a dealer license there? in Florida you can only sell 3 cars per year, and to get a dealer license you must:
Аttend a Pre-Licensing Dealer Training Course.
Obtain a Permanent Business Location.
Compile the Required Documents.
Obtain Proof of Liability Insurance.
Obtain Your Auto Dealer Bond.
Submit Your Dealer License Application.

That business location can't be your home either, it must be commercially zones property dedicated to vehicle sales and have both room to store all the vehicles and a suitable dedicated office space.
