It is worth more in spare parts than it is as a bus.

I have a 2002 Chevy Bantam. It has under 10,000 miles on it, and passes its' annual safety inspections. It is well maintained, but currently has my company's logo and name painted on the side. We're looking to sell the bus as-is, but not sure how much we can ask for it at the beginning of a negotiation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: How much is my bus worth? Bill Chaploney 5-31-03  
Is there a market for the soare parts?
Re: How much is my bus worth? Mark O. 6-3-03  
The short answer is yes and no.

There are a lot of people who make their living purchasing buses and parting them out. One of the largest companies that comes to mind is Nimco.

In order to make any money at parting out a bus you have to find a market first.

Older equipment and their parts find a lot of buyers south of the border.

For an individual to make any money on just one bus you are going to have to spend a lot of your time advertising the parts and pieces.

With so many good used buses for sale right now, a lot of people are purchasing a parts bus to donate the needed pieces to another bus. For instance, a bus with a good power package that is all rusted out donating the working pieces to a straight no-rust bus with a broken engine or transmission.

Good luck.
