To find cars and trucks sold directly by owners, go to online classifieds websites such as Autotrader, CarGurus and Craigslist. In the search section of the websites, provide the details of the car or truck, including the price range, model, transmission and size.
On Autotrader, car buyers are required to provide their ZIP code for easier access to cars for sale within their local area. To find all cars and trucks for sale, click the cars for sale option on the homepage, fill in the required details, choose one model under the style category and then tick the checkbox next to the private-sellers-only option.
Apart from car sales, CarGurus provides important purchase information for clients to learn more about a particular brand and what consumers are saying about it. To confirm whether a particular car or truck for sale is sold directly by its owner, the for-sale-by-owner tag should appear at the bottom of the description.
To find cars sold directly by owners on Craigslist, customers are required to click the owner link located at the top left side of the page. They are also required to specify the details of the vehicles they are looking for and their location.
