Please note that Section 13 contains an arbitration clause and class action waiver. You agree to resolve all disputes through binding arbitration, and you waive any right to have a judge or jury decide those disputes. You also waive your right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, and representative actions.
The Services include tools that may help You:
WhipFlip offers a service that assesses the value of vehicles based on certain criteria (the “Instant Quote/Offer Tool”). To use the Instant Quote/Offer Tool, you must submit information about your vehicle, such as: (i) photos; (ii) License Plate or VIN; (iii) mileage; (iv) a description; and (v) any other information we may require from time to time.
Our website gives you the ability to enter their vehicle information to obtain an initial quote on the value of their vehicle if purchased by WhipFlip through our service. Upon completing a series of required steps, an authorized user may obtain an ESTIMATED, non-binding offer for WhipFlip to purchase their vehicle through our in-driveway experience.
A QUOTE OR OFFER PRODUCED BY USE OF OUR WEBSITE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A BINDING OFFER IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM. All offers are subject to final vehicle inspection, ownership verification, and final approval by us.
Any offer made by WhipFlip, including through our website will be honored and completed only when a WhipFlip representative (referred to as a “Car Concierge Representative”) visits you to complete a potential sale of the vehicle through our service and confirms ALL of the below:
IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY to ensure full disclosure of all vehicle details, condition information, history records, and adherence to all steps in the WhipFlip Quote, Offer, and Appointment Booking process are accurately completed. If it is determined from either an in-person inspection or any other method that there is a deviation from any of the terms set forth in our Quotes & Offers Disclaimer or the customers vehicle is misrepresented in any way, WhipFlip may adjust at its sole discretion any Quote or Offer, up to and including termination of any non-binding or binding Offer.
You acknowledge and herby agree that our website utilizes specific technology features and third-party providers to provide a quick and seamless vehicle selling experience to its customers. Although it is expected to be a rare occurrence, these certain technology elements may go offline, produce inaccurate results or calculations, or underperform which could deliver inaccurate Quote or Offer values to its customers. WhipFlip will make a reasonable effort to remedy this situation with you but reserves the right to adjust or rescind any Quote or Offer made in its sole discretion, without penalty or any liability.
In addition, you acknowledge and hereby agree that WhipFlip operates within the automotive resale market, which at times can be volatile, and unpredictable at any time, for any reason. Abrupt economic downturns (e.g. recession), pandemics, consumer behavior shifts in specific vehicle years, makes, and models, recalls, acts of God, natural disasters, or any other automotive market downturn could cause potential harm to WhipFlip. Therefore, Whip Flip reserves the right to adjust or rescind any quote or offer made to you whether from the website or during our in-person visit at its sole discretion, without liability.
You also agree to not rely on any WhipFlip Quote, Offer, or Appointment to relieve or adjoin to a personal detriment, liability, or promise between the user and any related party, relationship, or arrangement.
WhipFlip makes reasonable efforts to regularly update our Website features pertaining to vehicle values (e.g. Quote or Offer) and Appointments including any technology, database, or industry information used to determine vehicle values displayed on our Website. However, WhipFlip makes no guarantees, representations, or warranties and assumes no responsibility or liability pertaining to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of any value (e.g. Quote or Offer), or any other information that would reside or be delivered by our Website.
Additional terms and conditions will follow any final offer, payment, and ownership transfer made to the customer in the form of our purchase agreement documents that include our Vehicle Purchase Agreement, Power of Attorney, and Odometer Disclosure Statement.
If you decide to accept our offer they may schedule a time and date for a WhipFlip representative (known as our “Car Concierge Representative”) to complete the sale of their vehicle at your location which includes final inspection, direct payment via company check or electronic deposit, vehicle ownership transfer, and removal (transportation of sold vehicle). Appointments to sell are on a first come, first serve basis in which some time slots or days may not be available. WhipFlip will not be held responsible for late, missed, or cancelled appointments. WhipFlip reserves the right, at its own discretion to modify, reschedule, or cancel an appointment booked by you.

Most customer concerns can be resolved by calling our customer service department at (302) 287-3665, our “Contact Us” form on our Website, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
However, in the event that you and WhipFlip are unable to resolve any dispute or claim with one another, you and WhipFlip each agree to resolve any and all disputes and claims through binding individual arbitration, unless you expressly reject this arbitration provision in writing and within 30 days in accordance with subsection (J) below. “Disputes and claims” shall be broadly construed to include past, current, and/or future claims that relate in any way to these Terms, your use of the Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity. However, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Delaware.
You and WhipFlip each waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Any arbitration under this provision will take place on an individual basis — Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You also agree not to participate in claims against WhipFlip brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account. However, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. If, however, you or we transfer or appeal the small claim to a different court, we reserve our right to elect arbitration.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery, and is subject to limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, including attorneys’ fees where permitted by law
A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to WhipFlip should be addressed to WhipFlip, Inc., Attn: Legal, 228 Goldfinch Turn, Newark, DE 19711. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and WhipFlip cannot resolve the Demand within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or WhipFlip may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by WhipFlip or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, that you or WhipFlip is entitled to.
The arbitration shall be administered by (i) JAMS, pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with its expedited procedures contained in those rules, or (ii) American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules. If you initiate the arbitration, you may choose one of the above administrators. If WhipFlip initiates arbitration, we will give you 20 days to choose the administrator. If you do not choose the administrator within that time frame, we will choose one. If the administrator a party chooses is unable or unwilling or ceases to serve as the administrator, then you or WhipFlip may choose the other administrator. If neither administrator is able or willing to serve as the administrator, the parties will mutually select an administrator, which must be a lawyer or retired judge with at least 15 years of legal experience.
Any arbitration hearing that you attend must take place at a location reasonably convenient to your residence.
You and WhipFlip will bear the administrator and arbitrator fees that each party is normally required to pay under the rules and law applicable to the proceeding. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts, and witnesses, except where applicable law and/or the Agreement allows a party to recover attorney’s fees from the other party.
The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs this arbitration agreement. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and claims of privilege. The arbitrator shall not apply federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence. The arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies, or awards that conflict with these Terms, unless otherwise provided by applicable law.
Either party may make a timely request for a brief written explanation of the basis for the arbitration award. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Otherwise, the award and the arbitration proceeding shall be kept confidential. The arbitrator's decision is final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA. Either party can appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the administrator. The costs of such appeal will be borne by the appealing party unless applicable law or the administrator’s rules provide otherwise.
This arbitration provision survives the termination of your relationship with WhipFlip and/or your use of the Services. In the event of a conflict between this arbitration provision and the applicable arbitration rules or other provisions of the Terms, or any other agreement between us, this arbitration provision will govern any Dispute or Claim between you and WhipFlip, as defined in these Terms.
If a court or arbitrator deems any part of this arbitration provision invalid or unenforceable under any law or statute consistent with the FAA, the remaining parts of this arbitration provision shall be enforceable despite such invalidity; however, if the prohibition of class relief and proceedings in subsection (B) is found to be unenforceable or void in any proceeding, then this entire arbitration provision (except for this sentence) shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal such limitation or voiding.
In order to reject this provision, WhipFlip must receive a signed writing (“Rejection Notice”) from you within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). The Rejection Notice must include your (i) name, (ii) account number or username, (iii) mailing address, and (iv) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with WhipFlip through arbitration, and must be mailed to WhipFlip, Inc., Attn: Legal, 228 Goldfinch Turn, Newark, DE 19711 via certified mail, return receipt requested. Rejecting the arbitration provision will not affect any other aspect of the Terms, nor will it affect any other existing or future arbitration agreement between you and WhipFlip.
