How long can I keep a vehicle?
As long as you want!
There are no restrictions on how long or how short your flips can be. Occasionally, when a vehicle has been with a member for many weeks, we might need to ask for it back so that we can do routine tasks like preventive maintenance. However, at worst we’ll flip you into a fresh vehicle that is just like the one you have.
In practice, most members flip several times a month and enjoy doing so!
How new are the vehicles?
The majority of our vehicles are the current or prior model year. Each vehicle is detailed before and after it ever goes to a member. Many of our members tell us that every vehicle feels like new!
