Stop Leaving The Scrap Yard Feeling Disappointed Because You Drove An Hour Away To Clean Out A Garage Or A Retailer And Didn’t Know How Much Money Was There!
You get a phone call or an e-mail from a Craigslist Ad and your potential customer says, “Hello John. I saw your ad for the metal removal. I live 45 minutes away in (city here) and I have a whole bunch of scrap metal I need to get rid of. Is this something you can do for me?”
Your reply would be something like, “Sure. What kind of scrap items are you trying to get rid of?”
Here comes “the list”. Your potential customer will now say “I have 2 really big refrigerators, 2 washers, 2 dryers, 1 stove, 1 microwave, 2 old push lawn mowers and a few car rims.”
You get instantly flabbergasted because you’re on the phone, or trying to answer an e-mail and you have to calculate all of this in your head at this very moment.
There are many things to consider right now… You need someone to help with the fridge so you need two guys. It’s a decent size load so you’ll need your truck AND your trailer. It’s an hour away so you have to figure for gas with the trailer. And to top it off NOW you have to figure how much this scrap is worth in “cash form” before you make the final call. And that right there is where scrappers LOSE MONEY ALL THE TIME in this business.
Say your truck costs .50 a mile in gas, your hourly wage is $20, your helper’s wage is $15, it will take 1.5 hours and 90 miles round trip just to get there and back, and you’ll be loading for about 1 hour.
