I bought my last truck from Fresno (I'm near San Jose). When I search for a truck, I look at vehicles within ~5-6 hour driving distance. It helps to find the right fit for my needs. Then I ask a lot of questions before driving out to look at the vehicle. If possible, I have a friend who lives closer take a look for me before I make the trip, if it's a far distance.
In the case of the truck in Fresno - the seller brought it to me!
