Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is RideFlippers?

    RideFlippers is a site that allows you to search through the best car deals in your local area and be notified about them by email or text message. If you are looking to buy cars and sell them at a profit, or are looking to limit the depreciation on your next car purchase, RideFlippers has information that will help.

  • How do you determine the value of a car?

    We look at what price similar cars have sold at in your region recently, the value of the car on sites like Edmunds and Kelly Blue Book, and factor in condition and mileage to determine an estimate of the car's value. The only real answer to the question of a car's value is what someone else is willing to pay. But through a variety of data sources, we make the best estimate possible.

  • I am only interested in certain types of cars. Can I limit the results?

    When searching on the site and when configuring your alert notifications, you can specify which year, make, model, price, even color or drivetrain, to narrow down the results to exactly what you are looking for.

  • Is flipping cars legal?

    This depends on where you live and the volume of cars you are flipping. Every state allows you to buy cars. Every state also allows you to sell cars. Many states have a limit on the number of cars you can buy and sell in a year. If you have a dealer's license, then in most states you can buy and sell as many cars as you want. But as a general rule of thumb, you should check your local laws and conduct your actions accordingly. RideFlippers provides its users with information on car deals in their area.
