Buses For Sale

Buses for sale can be found all over the place, offering both new and used buses.

New buses for sale are available from specialty dealers, much like other automobiles, but are often found in only a few dealerships across the country. Oftentimes bus companies produce buses for special orders, for transit bus fleets and specialized bus sales such as conversion coaches.

Used buses for sale, on the other hand, are easy to find. Used bus yards often have their inventory available online, making it easy to find the bus you are looking for in your price range. The Internet also makes it simple to find a bus yard close to you, so you don't have to travel a long distance to get your bus to where you need it to be.

You can find nearly any kind of bus at a bus yard or in an online inventory. There are school buses, charter buses, large motor coaches like MCI buses or Prevost buses, converted recreational vehicles, mini buses, even entertainer buses with bunks for sleeping and lavatories. You can find classic buses, like silver Eagle buses, as well.

When you're buying a bus, you will usually pay top dollar for a new or customized bus. Motor coaches can run well over $200,000, even for a fairly simple model. Mini buses, on the other hand, are decidedly cheaper, pricing in the $20,000 range. The high prices you will find for new buses for sale make buying a used bus more attractive.

Like automobiles, new bus values depreciate over the years. This means that you can find a bus that was $100,000 new and well-maintained by its owners for considerably less. School buses and mini buses can be found for very low prices, due to their durability and simple designs, sometimes pricing below $10,000. Buying a used bus, however, does involve some caveats, as buses are more difficult to maintain than an average car. A good working knowledge of bus mechanics and replaceable parts is a good thing to have for any bus owner. It is also good to ensure that replacement parts are still available for your bus, as parts for many bus models are no longer produced. Sometimes a bus buyer will buy two buses, one to operate and one for parts, if they believe that it will be difficult to find replacement parts.

No matter what you're looking for, you can always find buses for sale!
