> I've never seen a Craigslist ad that talked about shipping. Really, it's
I’ve purchased quite a few computers from across the country via Craigslist. Just be upfront with the seller and ask if they would be willing to ship. I always specify “are you willing to drop this off at a FedEx or UPS store and have it packed and shipped at my expense”. Make it as easy as possible on the seller. 1/2 of my inquiries go unanswered but 1/2 are willing to go to the trouble. Another issue is payment. Most Craigslisters don’t like Paypal so you do run some risk of having to send a check or money order.
