FAQ

How does this site work?

(1) Register
(2) Create a listing for the vehicle you own
(3) Add the vehicle that you desire to your Wishlist page
(4) Search for the desired vehicle you have just added to your Wishlist. If a "Perfect Swap" is available, it will be displayed as such in your search results. If not, the search results will display the vehicles you searched for, but they will not qualify as a "Perfect Swap". You can search through these listings, and email the owner to see if he/she might be interested in swapping for your vehicle. Having your desired vehicle displayed on your Wishlist will enable you to be notified when a "Perfect Swap" is available in the future. When a Perfect Swap is found, simply work out the details of your transaction with the other owner. There will possibly be a difference in value that needs to be addressed. Maybe a loan payoff as well. Work out your financial details, and use a reputable service such as escrow.com to exchange funds. If you have no vehicle to swap, keep in mind that many owners will gladly entertain an offer to purchase outright.

What is a "whip?
Whip - Noun. Car. Origin: Street/hip-hop slang from New York City.
Where did the term "whip" originate?
On the first automobiles, the steering wheel was referred to as the "whip", as it had previously been used to control horses on stagecoaches and buggies. More recently, the Mercedes-Benz logo was noted to resemble a steering wheel, so the term was expanded to describe high end automobiles.
Can I sell my vehicle on this site, or is this only for swapping?
Yes, you can make/accept an offer as a straight sale on any listed vehicle.
What if I'm dissatisfied with my swap?
This site was designed to make its users feel a sense of community. As such, we hope that honesty and fairness will be the guiding qualities adhered to by all. However, please do your due diligence when researching any vehicle that captures your interest. Have the vehicle inspected by an independent party to confirm its condition. Above all, use common sense. Krause Capital LLC dba SwapMyWhip.com assumes no responsibility for problems arising from the exchange or sale of vehicles initiated on our site.
