      Hi my is Terrell,

      Working on opening my own salvage yard. Work at a salvage yard for 8 years. Was a manager there and carbuy coordinator. Want to know once I get the store opening. Should I sell used parts global.

            Hi Terrell. It can be difficult to come out of the workforce and become an entrepreneur/business owner. However, if you can withstand the start-up costs, long hours, and disappointments that starting a business entails it can be very rewarding. 


            There are other options, as well. Have you ever considered buying an existing salvage yard? It's a lot less riskier and may save you money in the end. Buying a business that is already in operation has the benefits of current customers, marketing, and proven business model in place. That way you're making a return on the money you put up the day or days after you buy it, versus months, or even years after from dealing with a start-up.
