The Yard Ramp Guy made a business model decision critical to successfully dominating the used yard ramp marketplace: We decided to partner with Sellers rather than haggle with them. It changed the dynamic completely.
We know we will work hard for our money on selling your ramp. It is not unusual to quote a used ramp to a dozen or more prospects over several months' time. While some used ramps sell before we even have a chance to post them to our site, some just don’t get snapped up as quickly as we’d like. We handle everything – the quote preparation including obtaining freight quotes, off-loading considerations and follow-ups with the prospects.
So instead of shooting you an insulting and time-wasting offer for your ramp, we share with you the market value based on our appraisal and the geographical location of your ramp.
We will make a recommendation for what we believe the asking price should be for your ramp and together we agree upon the asking price. We’ll discuss and agree upon sales negotiating strategy. And we will split the final sale price – 70% for you, 30% for The Yard Ramp Guy.
Not one time has a seller suggested our offer is anything but fair and attractive.
Our competitors say we are nuts for leaving as much cash on the table as we know we do. But we know what our numbers show. A used ramp is a single commodity item. We can work hard for our 30% and enjoy the profit from our effort...or we can lose out on more opportunities than we could ever count. We'll leave that way of doing business to our competitors.
