While core buyers, tow truck companies, scrap and shredding yards are often pegged as male-dominated, sometimes we find that our customer base isn’t always gender specific.
What to know: Most of the time, these operations are male-dominated, but a number of women play a key role.Reading Time: 1 minute
Mike Crosby explains: “We have this one supplier who calls herself ‘Junkyard Barbie’. We have a good relationship with her. She’s got an automotive scrap recycling business.
Another point he makes: Whether male or female, we provide our sellers with the option of selling more than just catalytic converters. Often our sellers are looking to offload aluminum rims and other materials. We have other customers who want to buy those items. We sell them virtually at cost.
At the end of the day:
It’s comforting to work with somebody you can trust and somebody that’s honest. We like to deal with people that are trying to run a business and trying to just do an honest, fair operation and relationships with them are important–male or female. Every customer wants an easy transaction–where they won’t have to be looking over their shoulders.
We make sure they can concentrate on all the rest of their day-to-day business by giving them the peace of mind that they are not being taken advantage of.
