Tip of the Week: How Buys Partially Empty Cats

Sometimes we receive cats in the mail that are not full (honeycomb) inside, therefore we have to downgrade the pricing for that cat. We have a process in which we use to check the inside of a cat when it’s sent to us. Check out the video of Tom Explaining how this is done. To avoid these problems, we always ask that you send us pictures of both sides of the cats so we can see inside when quoting you.

The buying team at is waiting to help you make $$ on your Catalytic Converters.
