As a bidder, you don't have to constantly watch auctions and worry about being outbid! All GovDeals Internet Auctions feature an auto-bid. In the bid box on the auction view page, enter the HIGHEST dollar amount that you are willing to pay, and the GovDeals bidding system will bid on your behalf by placing a bid at the current LOWEST minimum bid. If another bidder outbids your LOWEST minimum bid, the system will automatically place another bid, once again making you the current high bidder, until your "top dollar" number is reached. The auto-bidding system will continue to place the LOWEST minimum bids on your behalf until you are the winner of the auction or another bidder bids higher than your auto-bid. Auto-bids are completely private and are never displayed to other bidders. In the event of a reserve price auction, your auto-bid will immediately bid up to the amount of the reserve OR to the max amount of your auto-bid if the reserve price is in excess of your auto-bid.


Bid Extension

If a bid is placed during the final 3 minutes of an auction, the auction's current end time will automatically extend for additional 3 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed during the last three minutes.

Since most bidding occurs during the final minutes of an auction, this allows all bidders a sufficient amount of time to continue bidding.

Open auction where bidding starts at a fixed amount and increases by a minimum bid increment (or higher) by different bidders until the auction end time is reached. Once the auction has closed and a high bidder has been identified, the seller reserves the right to approve or reject the final offer.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hi, the auction is set for 60 days. Is that correct? Thanks (9/23/21 10:11 PM)
A: Unfortunately yes - the board authorized that time frame so we had to list it that way. (9/24/21 8:12 AM)
Q: I offer $600-$700 from here, because my account only limits me to three bids I ask for the following information: Does it run? What is the mileage? Is it automatic? Does it have a Title? Does it require a special license? How many passengers did it carry? Anything else wrong with it? (9/24/21 3:41 PM)
A: Just to be clear we offer no warranty or guarantee on the mechanics or body of the bus. It did pass the most recent state inspection and was in service until posted for sale on this site. There is no known mechanical issues and the mileage is posted in the ad for this sale. It does have a title and it is not automatic. You will need to check with the drivers license bureau in your state to see the requirements for license. I believe the capacity was 56. (Correction: I see the side of the bus says 65.) (9/30/21 2:43 PM)
Q: Hi, thanks in advance for the information. I'm wondering whether there is penetrating rust on the bus? (9/30/21 12:21 AM)
A: I don't think so. It wouldn't pass inpection if it did and it passed in the spring 2021 state inspections. We have used the bus as a spare up until put for sale. (9/30/21 2:39 PM)
Q: What is the top cruising speed? Thanks. (9/30/21 12:23 AM)
A: As far as we know up to 65 with no problem. I would guess it'll go up to the spedometer limit of 85. (9/30/21 2:37 PM)
Q: Double checking. Is it a 5.9 Cummins (10/7/21 7:50 PM)
A: The VIN code comes up with this "Cummins ISB CM550 6 CYL". (10/8/21 8:41 AM)
Q: Manual or automatic transmission? (10/15/21 10:57 PM)
A: Manual (10/16/21 6:40 AM)
