Where Are We at in the Used Bus Market?
Bus Mart is finding it more difficult to find good used school buses that will meet our specifications to sell. First of all, there are some buses that we will not buy and pass on to unsuspecting customers who have trusted Bus Mart these past 40 years. We will not buy nor sell the International Bus with VT365’s or Cat C7 Regeneration Engines. By experience (and in our opinion) those are costly, unreliable engines. Secondly, we will only sell exceptionally clean or Bus Mart Refurbished Buses. No Rust Buckets with deteriorating cross members, side panels etc. etc will be sold here. Thirdly, we are the only company selling used buses that we are aware of that offers a free one year limited warranty. So which will it be? Paying on the front end for a good bus, or paying on the back end to fix and repair. Cheaper is rarely better. A fair price for a good bus is what we sell. We sell 95% sight unseen these days off the internet and we have never had a rejection when the bus arrived.
