Is it possible to have a car that I'm interested in shipped to me if I am

Of course it is possible to ship. But since Cargurus is just a listing site you would be purchasing the vehicle first from the seller or dealer, then contract a shipping company to pick it up and deliver it. If you didn't like it, your stuck with it. Depending on the miles apart, you could be paying a couple hundred to over a thousand. I personally would not recommend buying a vehicle without driving and touching it. Find one local.

Look for dealers like Carvana or Vroom, they will sell and deliver a vehicle to your door as part of the purchase and have a return policy.

Enough to wipe out any savings you get and then some.

When buying long distance always have the vehicle inspected before you decide to buy. I've used for this. Also, get shipping quotes before you decide to buy! I've used for this. It may not be a good deal if the shipping costs eat up your savings on the vehicle purchase price. Hope that helps! Jim
