Our story

AutoFlip was founded over two years ago by a team of car industry professionals who were fed up with the lack of transparency and fairness in the used vehicle market. We decided it was time to shake things up and give sellers a better way!

Backed by IDOM Innovations (the corporate venture arm of the Tokyo Stock Exchange listed IDOM Inc.), we've got over 25 years of wholesale automotive experience behind us. Combined with our cutting-edge tech and innovative products, we're transforming how used cars are traded across Australia and New Zealand.

As we continue growing our keen team and expanding our awesome services, one thing stays the same: our focus on developing new solutions to constantly improve the automotive buying and selling experience.

Expanding into the New Zealand Market

AutoFlip is celebrating a major milestone with the exciting announcement of our first franchise location in New Zealand! This marks a huge step in our rapid growth and underscores our commitment to shaping the future of car selling and buying across Australasia.

To properly navigate the unique automotive landscape of the New Zealand market, we knew we needed some local partners who really understand the ins and outs. That's where the dynamic duo of Patrick Davey and Ken Quigley from Davey New Zealand come in, two big players in the Kiwi used dealership scene who share our vision of revolutionising how cars are traded.

After stellar success with AutoFlip in Australia, expanding into New Zealand was a natural and logical next step. At the end of the day, dealers everywhere are always on the hunt for quality vehicle stock at a fair price. By leveraging the cutting-edge technology and operational model we've finely tuned across the ditch, we can now bring those same game-changing solutions to the NZ market.

AutoFlip has touched down in NZ and is ready to make hassle-free, top-dollar car sales a reality for Kiwis from Kaitaia to Invercargill!
