Remember the Department of Revenue wants THEIR MONEY and they do not like competition for THEIR MONEY!
Yeah be a snitch for the taxing entities who wouldn't mind taking everything from you and your family if they could.....

Patrick are you forgetting your BAPTIST faith.

You also have legal licensed car dealers in the area who do it the right way with a business license, required liability insurance, required car lot, all the other expenses that go with operating a legal business and do pay proper taxes on the business they conduct in their local community.

What about their families and the the money taken from them by Curbstoner's illegally playing car dealer?

It works both ways!

Never seen where my Baptist faith commands me to do as you suggest...
We also have legal licensed dealers that routinely take advantage of people with shady sales tactics....

"What about their families and the the money taken from them by Curbstoner's" Never known anyone that happened to personally. I'm sure I;ve bought one myself but it didn't matter, maybe it was a veh I bought to part out and I never titled it because the rest was going to the crusher...
I have to be a witness to something before it something I could even be involved with. It's not my job to make sure people are paying their taxes.

You do realize this isn't a forum you will get away with bashing someones faith in right? Try and be a little more respectful, atleast on here, you agreed to be in the terms you agreed to when you joined this site.

My suggestion for working with Midwest Sales is to make an appointment to sit down with one of their salespeople who is genuinely interested in helping you find the right bus, tell them what you are looking for and your budget and timeframe, and ask them to let you know when something that fits your criteria becomes available.

The reason the busses are sold before you get to the lot is because they have a list of buyers who are looking for specific busses and the good ones move while the not-so-good ones take up space on their lot. Also, given that these are used busses, there is plenty of room for negotiating on price. The listed price is not necessarily the lowest price they will take for a bus. Working with a salesman who already knows your limit might get you more bus than you expect for your dollars.

We took a day trip with a couple friends who were also bus shopping to their Missouri location and got a lot of great information by talking to one of their more experienced mechanics and with an office person both of whom gave us some insight into the business, which I'm sharing with you now.
