STARTING FROM just $1, more than 30 end-of-contract late-model buses and coaches with low mileage will be auctioned to the Australian bus industry via an online Lloyds Auctions event that ends midday Wednesday, April 10, 2019, it’s been announced.

An extremely rare event, says Lloyds, the auction will be sweetened where if a bus is purchased by a sports team the bus will be sign written in their team colours along with two free memberships to their favourite Australian football team with every bus purchased.

With coaches and buses ranging from 12-seaters to 50-seaters there are buses to suit all requirements, according to Lloyds Auctions.

“This fleet of vehicles are in great condition, perfect for sporting teams, local schools, community run-abouts, people in the travel industry – or even someone with the intention to start up their own business opportunity,” said Lee Hames, chief operations officer at Lloyds Auctions.


“In fact, we think that these buses are such a great opportunity for sports teams that, if a sports team does purchase one of these coaches or buses, we will sign write it for them in their team colours,” Hames continued.

This fleet of buses and coaches have been looked after and well-maintained by a local reputable South East [Queensland] coach company and the vehicles have low mileage, the company states. The vehicles on offer range from people-movers, mini-buses, tour coaches right up to tri-axle long-range coaches.
