Repair Tips & Sources

YouTube is a wealth of information about all things. This link will take you directly to the Flipping Genius channel on YouTube. From there search for whatever repair or information you are looking for.  Likely, some other Flipper has already faced the same challenge and took the time to make a video!

Scotty Kilmer knows his stuff! Over 3.5 MILLION YouTube subscribers agree with me. Scotty offers a lot of of good general information and specifics too. If you are like me, you will check back - and laugh - often.

I brag about Dennis, Garry and the guys so often - I figured I would be remiss if I didn't include them in my list of resources. Dennis's shop is located on Old Railroad Bed Rd (next to the Post Office) in Madison, AL - so this is strictly a resource for our local Flippers.

Insurance is Essential

Running a business is challenging enough without having to worry about lawsuits, employee injuries or property damage. Having the right insurance gives you the peace of mind to focus on what matters - running your business.

The coverage you need depends on the type of business you run. CoverWallet's intelligent assessment system will identify the insurance you need based on your specific business, get you a policy that fits your budget, and do it all in less time than you think.

The National Independent Auto Dealers Association is a wealth of information - including contacts for every state, Auto Auctions all across the country, legal updates that effect the auto business, resources for car dealers and prospective car dealers, and more. Membership is very inexpensive - but even nonmembers will benefit from this site.

International Monetary Systems (IMS) is one of the world's largest and best respected business to business barter organizations. I have been associated with IMS for over a twenty years. They are headquartered  in the state of Wisconsin and conduct business throughout the US. I especially appreciate their travel department and the personal service they provide.To learn more about IMS, visit their site - then contact them for additional information.

Tradebank is a barter exchange headquartered in the Atlanta area that conducts business throughout the US. They have helped me build my businesses over the past three decades! To learn more, visit their site - then contact them for additional information. Lisa Smith of Tradebank of Huntsville was my guest during episode # 15

Danny Kirkland of Westlake Flooring was with us during Episode 20 of the Flipping Genius to talk about Floor Plan Financing. As I stated on that episode, I do not use a floor plan service - and avoid all debt - but Danny is a good guy. This may be a good thing for you. You decide for yourself.

From simple to complex taxes, filing is easy. All with 100% accuracy, backed by America’s #1 tax prep provider.

Take payments any way you want. Whether it is on line or in person Square can help you take all kinds of payments quickly and securely.

ASC Warranty offers insured warranties on used vehicles, no matter how many mile on the odometer. I personally only use (sell) the power train warranty for 6 months or 6,000 miles - as it can provide peace of mind for just $195.  I don't use the warranty as profit source, but other dealers can and do. It is a tool I use every now and then - and is worth having in your tool box. I was introduced to ASC by NIADA

 

Accessories

Auctions

 
Copart logo.JPG

Copart offers 100% on line Salvage and Used car auctions across the US and around the world. You can sell a vehicle without even taking it to the site pre-auction. They have 170 locactions in the United States, 8 in Canada, 36 in Europe, 3 in the Middle east and 10 in Brazil.  Some auctions are open to the PUBLIC and others are dealer only. This can present a good opportunity.
