Great listings on online auction sites are often “Local Pickup Only”. It would help to have a friend who lives there who can ship it to you. If you don’t, then, fortunately, you can hire one.
I haven’t tried it yet, but sites like TaskRabbit seem to be the way to get stuff picked up and delivered to you.
I wish I knew about this when that perfect Macintosh SE/30 got listed in Los Angeles!
