Seller's Notes

This site offers the general public a chance to buy damaged Boats and motorcycles that are for sale by insurance companies. It is basically a reseller site since the boats and bikes are not ours. They are owned by insurance companies and are sold by a large public company. We just earn money off of adsense not off of the sale of the cars.


I spend about an hour a day on the site. The only overhead I have is hosting but if you are outside the US you might have a little more such as cost of internet access which can be as high as $100 a month. The site made $662 last month from adsense. I didnt have GA installed correctly for a while and really last month was the first full month of correct stats but the site has had steady traffic for a while but the way flippa uses the api and averages out the traffic it made it look like it has lower traffic but most months it gets about 10k visitors.

The buyer will have access to the cars which are auto updated on the site. All I do is market the site which I do on several different sites such as craigslist, ebay motors, backpage, ect. The value in the site is in the marketing methods. We do not spend money on paid advertisements and the methods can be adapted to other types of sites. I operate over 100 sites and many use this method and we well into six figures a year combined with all the sites so the method has the ability to produce enough traffic to produce a full time income but this is one of our smaller sites that I do not spend much time on.  

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Why do people need to pay 450$ as deposit to register?

You dont on our site. You are register to bid on the insurance items. That is a third party company but they make you pay a deposit because you are using their dealers license to bid and if you bid on a car and win the auction and then you dont pay for the car then they have to pay the insurance company $400. That is only if you are buying something.

I sent you a video from today that up to date on the adsense. Of course flippa verifies the adsense using their api tool but it is only up to date as of the end of last month so I sent you video. The adsense is accurate but I didnt really get google analytics on the site correctly until last month about 2/3 through the month so in a few days when the month ends I will update the stats which will be the first full month or real stats. Before I didnt have the code on all the pages.

I've been to the website and don't understand how to use it. There is a form at the bottom to fill out but no indication of what happens if I submit the information. I tried on a mac browser and on an iphone.

There are no fees from the third party company who sells the items.

The contact for is just in case some wants to contact us for any reason. We make the easy so we can collect email addresses in case we want to market cpa offers later. If you put your mouse over the home link at the top a drop down menu appears with all the boats and bikes.

I sent you a pm with the link to a video of the revenues that was at the end of last month but of course flippa does verify the revenues on adsense and they are up to date as of a few days ago. I am offering two months of training after the sale via training videos and Skype. I have sold sites on flippa before as well. I sold one a few months ago on here but yes I am fine with escrow.

I sent you the video. I have had a lot of questions about the traffic. Please not the traffic numbers of a little over 3k that flippa displayed is not accurate. The site gets around 10k visitors a month. Flippa shows and average and I didn't put google analytics on the site until a few months ago and it was put on half way through the month so it messed up the average monthly visitor count. The site had about 50k page views last month. I can add someone to the stats to view the accurate numbers.

How come 95% of your site traffic is direct? How do people find out about your website if they go directly to your website? The unique visitor count is ~25-30%, which makes it kinda hard to understand how they could come across your website.

As I mentioned above the traffic is from marketing (free ads not paid) and in that marketing it has our url. The URL is not clickable so in order for someone to visit our site that is interested in one of the boats or bikes they either have to copy and paste the URL or type it in direct into the web browser so that makes it direct.

The traffic is good quality traffic. Look at most sites on flippa for sale at their bounce rate and time on site and average page views and you will see that the visitors that do come to the site have a real interest in what we are selling (they are interested in buying a boat or a motorcycle). I will PM a sample of our marketing.

Yes I will send you a private message with the details. I obviously don't want to post all the details in public and have 100 other people start doing what we do sense there are very few people who use this method.

I have lowered the BIN price. I also have some smaller sites that use this method that I am looking for a partner on that are much cheaper if someone is just wanting to learn the business.

About 9 years now. Of course we have modified it a little over the years but the traffic sources are still the same and have grown over the years. I use it for all kinds of different sites, some are automotive and a lot of other different types of sites. I have some sites that make $3k to $4k a month from either adsense or cpa offers so it is adaptable to different types of sites.

Why is the WHOIS email address different to the name of the owner and why does this email address appear on websites which "apparently" list email addresses of "scammers". Not suggesting you are involved in any way, but one has to ask the question going from the publicly available information. Thanks

The email address listed in the whois is the web designer who also registers the domain name and ensures it does not expire. He has over 5k domain names in there account so I have no doubt with that many clients some send out spam and if that email which is a gmx account is listed in the whois someone will complain. But you also have to realize that when you have a website or any business esp one that gets this much volume someone is always going to complain about something.

These boats and bikes that are listed on this site are auctioned off 5 days a week so the inventory changes every single day. When you post ads on cl or any other classified ad site about a particular bike you are going to have to several people emailing you saying "I want it" and then if it is sold they are going to be mad. If that type of stuff hurts your feelings then this is not the right site for you but any business it is impossible to keep everyone happy.
