15 Minutes With ARA’s Kim Glasscock

A thousand recyclers will head to Nashville, Tenn. this fall for the 71st Annual ARA Convention. With an intriguing venue like “Music City,” and work sessions with thought leaders in the industry, the convention is sure to be a draw. We caught up with meeting planner Kim Glassock to get the inside scoop on what’s new and exciting at this year’s meeting, scheduled for Oct. 22 - 25, 2014.

Digital Customers

Self-service facilities are a common business model in the auto recycling industry. There are an estimated 500 to 700 of these yards across North America. These facilities - with their one million vehicles in inventory - drain fluids, but store the vehicle whole and allow customers to pull their own parts. They typically cater to the local public, or anyone who can walk in through the door, unlike full-service yards which sell their parts nationwide via Internet-based parts locating systems and eBay; that is until now.

Bill Champion

When the Colorado Automotive Recyclers (CAR) association decided to champion a state salvage-titling bill, it did so knowing that if passed, there wouldn’t be a big monetary gain for the Colorado auto recycling industry. CAR decided to do it anyway simply because the bill was a huge score for consumer safety. HB1299 was signed into law on April 25, 2014.


Classic Issue Goes To Press Soon

It is officially summertime. One of the best things about summer is all of the classic car shows, shine and drive events and so on. That also means it’s getting close to The Locator Magazine’s annual Classic Issue, which will go to press right before the July 4th holiday. This special issue was a huge hit last year and it should be again this year.
