Does it REALLY matter who I buy my Returns Truckload from?
The answer to this question really boils down to how much money you want to make on each truckload that you buy. There are tons of general merchandise truckloads out there, but in reality they are all ultimately controlled by a handful of liquidation companies. One of the things that separates a legitimate liquidation company from a broker is the fact that most legitimate liquidators actually OWN the products that they sell. This is very important when you consider the ramifications of sending your money to a broker only to find out later that he couldn’t “get a load” for you. Typically they will insist on keeping your money until they can find a load for you, oftentimes it’s not even the same type of load you originally ordered!
Making money with Liquidated Goods is not rocket science! You have to be able to buy the products at the right price and then sell for a profit margin high enough to take care of overhead and still leave some left over to grow the company.
Legitimate liquidators have already worked out the problems associated with this industry. They understand what the best loads are and how to purchase them at the lowest possible price. They have already worked out a warehousing solution and have the ability to ship to any part of the Country. A good rule of thumb to follow is this, if the Liquidation Company that you are talking to is not willing to have you come and tour their facility, they probably don’t have one!
To be successful you have to work smarter, not harder. Hard work is important, I don’t mean to diminish that, but an intelligent approach to buying and selling is always the best place to be!
