would be to hire a family member or friend to watch your children.
However, if this is not an option, ask for referrals. Also, ask if the
person has been certified as a babysitter by the American Red Cross.
Be sure to give
sufficient information to your babysitter. Ensure that your babysitter is completely educated regarding
what to do if any type of emergency situation is encountered. This
includes providing a list of emergency phone numbers, the hotline for

The Local Business SpotLite: Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage
Co. and Absolute Hobbyz
some point in your life you've probably bought or sold a car.
Living in New Jersey you may have done so with the experts at
Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. located at 245 Mountain Avenue
Middlesex, NJ. If not, allow me to tell you a little bit about what they
do. Frank Zatika, owner and operator, has
been in the recycling and salvage business for the past 31 years. Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage
has been a family owned and operated business employing over 20
hardworking individuals. Recycling and auto
parts aren't the only facets of this company, they
also operate an online business that provides access to RC (radio
controlled) devices-anything from remote control cars to helicopters-at AbsoluteHobbyz.com.
With a facility
covering over 20 acres, you can imagine Frank’s security concerns are
expansive. To provide adequate coverage our team at Perfect Connections, Inc. installed
surveillance and recording equipment within and outside the
facility. We also provided and installed the alarm system, gate
access, and beam detection across their scrap yard. When asked how
the overall system has been working for them Frank said, “(It’s an)
Awesome system! It’s great to have a guy like that (Patrick
Chrustinsky) on your team.” Not to mention the surveillance
equipment is extremely helpful. It makes it easy to see who is bringing
in product and who/what people are leaving with. Another beneficial
and convenient feature of their system is they have remote access to the
cameras 24/7 via their mobile devices. Here at Perfect Connections, Inc. we understand
each business is unique that’s why we customize security systems to fit
individual needs. We do not believe in a “one size fits all”
To gain a better understanding
of what Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. and Absolute Hobbyz has to offer I took some time to discuss the
two with Frank. I wanted to know what Absolute Auto & Truck
Salvage Co. is all about. He replied, “We’re a family owned and
operated business, have been since 1983. We’re a recycling and
salvage center that buys and sells auto parts, new and used cars (mainly
used), and we buy and process scrap metals.” I also learned that
they are part of a recycling coalition that includes over 6,000 different
salvage facilities nationwide. As previously mentioned their
facility is over 20 acres housing anywhere between 700-800 cars (for
parts) at any given time. The other sector of their business,
Absolute Hobbyz, is a website where you can
purchase RC devices and accessories.
After learning a bit
more about the business I wanted to know more about who they typically
service and how. Frank said, “We really ‘run the range’ on company
size.” They service major industrial accounts, retail, and even
handle some town recycling needs. He also said they offer car
pickup service from homes directly. I asked him how far they’re
willing to travel to pick up an individual’s car. To which he
replied, “It really depends on the car.” They typically service
northern New Jersey and the New Jersey shore, but they have purchased
cars across the nation. At Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co.
they will also buy and process scrap metal and car parts maintaining
environmentally friendly procedure and policies.
You might be
wondering how is Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. environmentally
conscientious? I was and Frank told me, “We are as compliant as
possible with local and government regulations.” Everything is inspected
upon arrival before it gets recycled. All cars brought in for
recycling are fully drained of all fluids. Batteries, oil, and
mercury are all removed and properly disposed of.
Running a business
for 31 years is an amazing feat, but every business has its fair share of
challenges. I wanted to know what they are for Frank and his team,
and how they overcome them. When asked, he said, “Government
regulations (in regards to environmental issues) make it
difficult.” He pointed out the fact that many rules seem more like
“blanket” requirements vs looking at each
situation on a case-by-case basis. Still, Frank and his team do
their absolute best to comply and keep up with all of the environmental
rules and regulations.
Challenges aside, I
was curious as to where Frank sees the future of his businesses and what
his goals are. He stated, “I would like to see steady growth in all
areas (Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. and Absolute Hobbyz). We want to keep profits coming in and
keep our employees.” Managing and keeping up with the changing
regulations is a major factor in future operations as well.
