Do You “Pull and Pack” Your Cores
There is an inherent issue with packing your core box as parts are being pulled. It may not be obvious as you have probably “always done it this way”, but light-duty cores often get put in the box before your heavy-duty cores, causing significant damage. These parts were probably in great condition at the time of removal.
Damage from sloppy packing renders many parts “useless” and are rejected by your core company, resulting in less PROFIT. My goal is to get you as close to 100% as possible.

We have either re-allocated the current room or invested in new buildings for this purpose. Why? Because our priorities have changed! The cost of salvage vehicles is at an all-time high. Inventorying and parts prep are now equally important, if not more important than the actual dismantling process. Welcome to 2021, where demanding customers expect clean and “as described” used auto parts. Core companies are customers as well, and it is our job to ship quality rebuildable cores
