    Been driving since 2004 been always a company driver and happy with my employers but im ready to take that plunge before I never gave it much thought. So im wondering from which seller is best to find a decent truck used to start off private seller or possibly truck dealer if they have used trucks. I’ve been told to stay away from non dealer places that sell used trucks like the ones you see on side of the highway.

    How used of a used truck are you looking for? Something pre emmissions I'd buy private party before a dealer. Nobody's going to give you any sort of warranty on anything that old and if they do it'll be like pulling teeth to get anything covered under warranty. I wouldn't buy a used emmissions tuck but that's just me.
