Scrap buyers reputation reports

“But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it?

But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids”.

At Tradefox, you can check the details of a scrap buyer at any time. Not only do we perform standard due diligence checks upon registration, but we also ask users to verify all details. We look at profile pictures, email addresses, phone numbers, identification documents, and check whether an employee is actually employed by the company. 

If you claim and optimize your profile as a business owner or representative you can earn up to 5 unlocks, which can be used immediately to open due diligence reports of scrap buyers. Of course, it is also possible to start a paid plan, so you can open multiple reports. View our price plans here.

In addition to the due diligence checks, we ask our users for feedback on their trades. A number of things are asked anonymously. One of these things is reputation within the industry. You can easily and quickly see whether the relevant company has a good reputation. These reviews come from the industry, for the industry.

Tradefox has a database of more than 157,000 companies active in the scrap trading industry. Among these companies are many scrap buying companies / scrap consumers that buy scrap nationally and internationally. Within our due diligence reports, there is a section with information about the trading history of a scrap buying company. More than 40% of the scrap trading company profiles in our database possess this information.

The accessible trade data offers a comprehensive view into a scrap trading company’s activities. This includes a detailed analysis of the total trade volume, shedding light on the number of trades executed in the past two years, and an average monthly trade count. Additionally, an overview of the top five trading partners and a thorough breakdown of all the company’s trades are provided for a more in-depth understanding.

Thanks to this trade data, you can create a perfect picture of the experience of a scrap buyer or consumer and whether they are creditable.

In addition to a large amount of trade data that Tradefox has to offer, a lot of feedback is given about trades that have been made. These are 100% real reviews and all come from our users who have a verified account and have facilitated these trades. We use the trade data to get all involved parties to collaborate and review trades and build trust together. 

The review is based on five variables, namely: Integrity, Claims Handling, Making Payments, Quality of Material, and Shipping Procedure. Based on this feedback, you can quickly analyze how the scrap buyers is assessed based on their past trades. A second form of input can be obtained from the trust reviews. We ask our users to give an overall assessment of a company’s reliability based on their experience with a scrap buyer.

With the combination of trade and trust reviews, you have a fairly good picture of the references of the respective scrap consuming company. There may be other feedback online, but the question is whether these are all verified and real reviews.
