Auto-bidAs 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 ExtensionIf 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.

|Questions and Answers|
in the picture of the front drivers side, it looks like the sheet metal is pealing back. Is there any water damage inside the roof? (10/14/20 11:48 PM)

Q: Do you have any idea how long it has been parked?
Thanks for your help (10/18/20 2:36 AM)
A: Roughly 10 years. (10/18/20 10:12 PM)
Q: I also noticed the hole also on the drivers side.
Did this hole contribute to the water damage seen inside leaking from the roof ? I seen in a video posted that water had also leaked into the lighting fixtures and into the floors? Any idea of the extent water damage ? Has anyone pulled any layers back to see ? (10/20/20 2:27 AM)
A: I went back today and inspected the inside of the bus more closely. I don’t think it was the hole on the driver side you described that contributed to the leak because the hole appears to be lower than than the height of the ceiling inside of the bus. I could be wrong. Nobody has or will inspect this further. It doesn’t look too bad. Looks like the damage is limited to the one light enclosure and a small dried up puddle on the carpet beneath it. If I had to guess I’d say it’s a very small leak because the damage is minimal for sitting for 10 years exposed to weather. (10/20/20 12:49 PM)
