Private used truck sales are truck sales conducted by the owner and not a dealership. Some people prefer buying vehicles from private sellers because they can be less expensive than vehicles offered by dealers.
In private used truck sales, the buyer is usually responsible for handling the paperwork and conducting a vehicle inspection. The seller must provide all the relevant paperwork, such as the registration documents. It is advisable to obtain a Vehicle Identification Number and to hire an ASE-certified mechanic for inspection. To determine the price estimates for a particular truck, buyers can turn to a used truck price guide such as the Kelley Blue Book.
