Trucks can be purchased from a private owner through a classifieds website or online auction. In order to deal and communicate more with a buyer, it is recommended to pursue a classifieds listing as auctions are generally run by larger organizations.
Classifieds sites offers are targeted toward local buyers. However, buyers are able to see the vehicle and quickly get in contact with the owner to make a deal. Most classified websites offer free listing services.
An online auction is another place to purchase a truck from an individual. Although the auction is regulated by a larger company, the individual sale is not. Buyers may be able to contact the owner of the vehicle, but also have to abide by the rules of the auction site, which may include out bidding the other buyers for the vehicle.
