Your one-stop shop for good used school buses for sale online.
We have buses of all sizes.  Diesel and gasoline.
Our inventory constantly changes.

My Mission:  For 47 years, I have been selling school buses.  Many of the best used school buses in this country have been exported to 3rd world countries.  My goal is to find the best buses and provide an open door to churches and non-profits in this country so they have the opportunity to purchase the best buses at the best prices.   Money is hard to come by for these organizations.  It is also easily wasted.  I want the best buses, possible, to get sold for the best prices, possible, and I want as many good buses as possible to remain in service, here in the U.S.A., or overseas for orphanage or other international missionary work, rather than working for profit, overseas.

I have also been a big fan of school bus conversions and tiny house building.  Full time living, part time, seasonal living, camping, recreational vehicle travel throughout the United States... OR trade show, flea market, swap meet, and other hauling needs... school buses make great trucks.  You are limited only by your imagination.

WOW - a big gasoline bus
No rust - Texas bus
Gas buses run strong.
They are super quiet.
They burn more fuel than
a diesel, but gasoline is
usually cheaper than diesel.
Oil changes are hundreds
of dollars less on a gas bus.
Other service work is
cheaper and easier to
obtain.  Parts are easy to
find and inexpensive.



High top - Cat powered
Drives great - but the
transmission did get
warmer than usual
when driving it home.
Runs and drives.

Thank you for visiting www.floridachurchbus.com.  With our office located in Hudson, FL, we buy yellow school buses from every state in the United States.  We sell school buses around the world!  All of Central America uses our school buses for factory, oil field, and public transportation.  We sell many school buses in the U.S. to farmers for grain haulers, hay haulers, watermelon buses, and more.  We also sell to refinery contractors, electrical contractors, and other companies doing work inside our country's manufacturing network.  Additionally, day cares, private schools, after school programs, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops. the Boys and Girls Clubs around the country, and so many other for-profit and not-for--profit organizations purchase their buses from BGA School Buses, Inc., the parent company of this website.

Additionally, we have shipped buses all over Europe and Africa, especially, to be converted into tiny homes.  Some of our buses have actually went to museums overseas.  UK, Netherlands, Germany, and many other countries, now have BGA School Buses traveling their roads.  Families are living in these buses, home and abroad.  Do a quick Google Search on school bus conversions or tiny house school bus.  See what is out there.  People living their dream, limited only by their imagination.

Though we sell many yellow school buses around the world and to organizations and businesses within the United States, my true mission is to find the best buses in this country and sell these buses for as low a price as possible to churches in America, along with missionary workers around the globe.  So many orphanages around the world, today, move children with the buses they purchased from us.

Another huge market for us is school bus conversion.   Many school buses, each year, get converted into campers, motor homes, and are used for commercial ventures.  Flea market vendors, ice cream vendors, hot dog vendors, and others, all use our school buses to create a moving business which helps move our economy.  My wife tells me I do not sell school buses.  I sell dreams!  You are only limited by your imagination.  ALL things are possible!!  PLEASE join and participate in schoolbusconversionuts, a Yahoo Group... the only group online that gives 100% accurate school bus conversion information.  The archives have a wealth of information.  The original.  The best.  But not very much traffic, anymore.  The information on there is fabulous, though.  Whether you are full time living, camping, motor home traveling, or RVing, part-time or full-time, you can find all sorts of information and photos in this one location.  EASILY and QUICKLY.  Van dwellers?  We like you, too.  Whether you are full-timing it, or part timing it, a van home and a bus home share comparable ideas.  Minibuses are much like a van, but with more living space.

You can't believe everything you read, especially on skoolie.net.  Though it is a good resource for triggering your imagination, there are too many people on there writing things that are absolutely not true.  The attitude of many people on that website makes it NOT a pleasure to read for those of us who know school buses.  Try sorting out the garbage.  It is not possible, unless you already know the answer.  Then, you see how much garbage is truly there. 

The facebook skoolie page is alive and well.  Are you going off grid?  I know some people on this group who are experts on living off the grid while using wind or solar power, battery packs, and even dew wells for water.

The tiny house movement is huge.  Many families are now living, full time, in their converted school bus.  We have connections with most of the companies doing the tiny house conversions.  We are here to answer any questions you might have regarding the choosing the right bus for your home.  We have a large inventory of buses of all sizes.  Come take a look.  See how much roomier a converted a bus is than a house built on a car hauling trailer.  Tow a car behind your bus, rather than buy a huge dually pickup that is overworked in order to haul the massive, overloaded trailer you might otherwise call home.  Converting a school bus makes a lot more sense!  Structurally, the school bus is the toughest thing out there.  If you get in an accident today, you are more than likely going to still be sleeping in your bus, tonight.  NO OTHER TINY HOUSE OFFERS THIS SAFETY AND DURABILITY!
