I was happy with STEPP'S TRANSPORTATION SERVICE when I had to move one of my derelict relics/ orphans.

They're based in Tampa, (813) 621-8884

Last year, it was $95/ hour for a landoll, Peterbuilt & driver.

You might want to contact John Silver at mid florida trans in lakeland. He runs a lot of buses and does great work at reasonable prices.

It doesn't look that badly damaged.  I'm surprised they totaled it. (presuming that they totaled it since you got it at an insurance sale)

Crown,
   We are near Arcadia, FL (about 100 miles straight west on SR 70).  I could drive over to Ft. Pierce to help you get it running after we return home this coming Sunday, but would need some kind of idea what tools I should bring.  We have room to store the coach at our place until you come to get it.  Jack
PS: depending on what it will cost you to fly down, I can check on towing cost when we get home on Monday.  Jack

If you're in Florida with a bus and have a problem, you want Jack Conrad and John Silver in your corner for sure!

A curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities. They're just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy.
