OUR Company Philosophy
Our philosophy of buying and selling used buses and motorcoaches is based upon years of experience in all facets of the used bus sales industry. Founder and President John Spellings has owned, operated and, sold nearly every type of bus, motorcoach, motorhome, and conversion bus. That firsthand expertise uniquely qualifies the staff at Busforsale.com to understand the customer’s applications for a vehicle, helping them to find the used buses or motorcoaches that fits their needs..
We encourage you to compare our experience, knowledge, level of customer service, on-site offerings and record of success with any other used bus dealership. We are confident that you will not find a competing used bus sales company that can match our knowledge, experience, service and support when you are purchasing or selling used buses or used motorcoaches.
John Spellings’s strengths and expertise come from more than 33 years of corporate experience in the bus industry, starting in 1975 with Trailways Corporation. He quickly advanced to regional director of the Southeastern United States where he had sales, operational, profit and loss responsibilities.
After 12 years with Trailways, John pursued his entrepreneurial vision through the ownership of a travel agency that specialized in motorcoach tours and charter bus sales. Also during that time, he served as a consultant to the bus industry. As an advisor for the company that purchased and merged Greyhound Bus Lines with Trailways Bus Lines, John was responsible for operational pro formas, route and schedule consolidation, and asset acquisition.
Those relationships led to a joint venture between John and the new Greyhound Corporation. Together, they created a new business model for the charter side of the bus industry, which operated as Greyhound Charter Service, Inc. Five Southeastern cities were designated as Greyhound Charter Service markets. Within three years they increased their sales by 300%. John bought Greyhound’s shares of Greyhound Charter Service, changed the name to Orion Charter and Tours, and sold that company in 1992.
A continuation of his consulting career led to the acquisition of an entertainer coach leasing business. That company grew to own 20 entertainer and corporate VIP buses. In 1997, John sold the company’s fleet of buses, and Busforsale.com, LLC, came into existence.
More than 1000 used buses and a decade later, John and the staff at Busforsale.com, continue to increase used bus sales annually and expand its services. Today, the company is the largest broker of conversion and passenger motorcoach equipment in the country. The company also has the finest facility of any independent bus dealer in the country. No other dealership can match Busforsale.com’s level of customer service. The best just continues to get better.
Hilary Spellings is responsible for managing all aspects of the company’s industry leading website, as well as maintaining all business accounts. With a background in tourism, hotel sales, and charter and lease bus operations for major corporations across the country, she is well suited for her responsibilities.

How can Busforsale.com help me sell my coach?
On the Busforsale.com lot
The fastest and most effective way to sell your used motorcoach is on our lot. We have a simple listing agreement similar to a real estate listing agreement. We market, advertise, show, demonstrate, and negotiate the sale on your behalf. You control the selling price, and we are paid when the bus is sold.
For Sale by Owner
You keep your motorcoach on your property. We build a web page, advertising your used bus for sale on our website under the For Sale by Owner section, and you handle all the calls and negotiations. This is a monthly advertising service, which requires a one-time web page design fee for your bus, and a minimum monthly payment.
We Buy Buses
If you need a quick sale for your bus, we will do an inspection and a complete bus appraisal of your bus. Once the bus appraisal has been performed, we can assist you in the remarketing efforts or we can purchase the bus.
Can you provide any additional information other than what is listed on your site?
Yes. We can set you up with a live web cam for any of the used buses or motorcoaches located on our lot at a date and time of your choice. We will send you a live web cam via your computer where you can talk with the sales person and direct them around the coach in “real time”. Call or email our office for more details on how to set up your live web cam.
