So, you're looking at a Scenicruiser,
What is the number? Might be able to help with the history of it. . . .
Well, I guess logical discussions on finding a better bus are useless.
There ain't no better bus! & not much to choose from when it comes to that quality of style & history.
That said, driving one under it's own power is cheapest - provided it doesn't generate any major issues while on the road.
How long has it been out of service?
Are the tires good?
Air system, lines, bags, regulators, etc.
I have used a Landoll to move 5 Scenicruisers. This method works great & you KNOW what it is going to cost before you commit to the task.
If you are having one hauled on a landoll, actual charges are usually based on truck time away from the shop, but after 5 landoll trips, expect a budget price of ~$4 per loaded mile.
Another thing is height of the bus. The landoll deck height is 3'2" & anything over 13'6" overall height will require over height permits. The scenic sitting on the stops on the landoll will be right at 13'6", so over height permits won't be an issue.
Another thing is the truck & trailer take up an awful lot of space in front of the bus when it comes to loading/ unloading.
Send me a pm if you want to discuss the various options with someone who has saved a scenic or 2 from the crusher.
