I bought a car from Facebook marketplace for £800 and DOUBLED my money in 24 hours – it was the easiest car flip ever

A MAN claims he bought a used car on Facebook Marketplace and made over £800 in profit in less than 24 hours.

The expert automobile Flipper took to social media to reveal the handsome sum he made selling a used Citroen C1.

The TikToker found a Citroen C1 to buy and eventually closed the deal for £850

TikTok user @fliping247 described how he spotted the little C1 supermini advertised at £950 but after some clever negotiation managed to buy it for £850.

The 2007 engine had clocked up around 83,000 miles and the poster went on to boast that it put the car back up for sale the same day for £1,750.

Amazingly, an interested buyer got in touch within 24 hours and the sale was agreed at the stated price.

In his video, @fliping247 says he only spent £10 on a car wash and £15 on insurance coverage, bringing his total spend to £875.

However, this isn’t the first time the TikToker has made a decent profit buying and selling cars, having made a similar amount from an almost identical Citroen model.

Viewers were impressed by the car expert’s money-making skills and gave their opinions in the comments.

One said, “This is sick bro, how do I start?”

Another replied: “This was supposed to be our side job.”

While another viewer wasn’t too keen on the TikTok car flip, he opined, “You could clearly see the car is overrated – you’re getting ripped off.”
