I made more than £2,000 profit flipping a car on Facebook – it only took me a few DAYS… here’s how I did it | The Sun
A MOTORS expert made more than £2,000 profit by flipping a car on Facebook Marketplace – and it only took him a few days.
Ryan took to social media to share how he managed to make some serious cash after selling a second-hand Vauxhall Zafira.
TikTok user @ryans_salvage initially bought a Vauxhall Zafira for only £800, but paid an extra £50 to get it recovered.
He had to order a few extra parts to help repair it, such as a new clutch cylinder that cost him £40, oil and brake fluid for £60 and exhaust spray at £4.
The poster revealed that he paid one of his friends £350 to do a lot of the labour, including fitting a new head to the engine.
His friend also fixed the brakes, which cost him £40, while the stereo and horn also needed attention.
