About FlipRide

Travis Hawkes founded FlipRide in 2019 after a hassle-filled experience buying his son his first car. He recognized that buying a car is an incredibly exciting experience and that selling a car gives way to new opportunities — yet the transaction is rarely simple or quick. FlipRide is here to make that transaction better than it’s ever been, for good.
