Keep your child safe with the tips found here.


Be comfortable with the babysitter you hire.The ideal situation 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 Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-57d99c6f-52a3-4df9-baf6-742e0c8b698c-v2babysitter. 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 poison control, the child’s pediatrician information, and where the first aid kit is located.


Install surveillance cameras for additional peace of mind. There is no reason to constantly worry about your child while you are away. If necessary, install surveillance cameras inside your home, so that you will be able to check in remotely to ensure that everything is going smoothly.

The Local Business SpotLite: Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. and Absolute Hobbyz


At 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 Co. 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” solution.


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.


Whether you’re looking for a new (or used) ride, trying to get rid of some scrap metal, want to recycle your current car, or need a remote controlled helicopter Aboslute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. and AbsoluteHobbyz.com are the stops for you!  For further information and/or inquiries don’t hesitate to contact Frank or his staff at 732-469-2202 (Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co.) or 201-644-2202 (Absolute Hobbyz).  The hours of operation for Absolute Auto & Truck Salvage Co. are weekdays 7:00am-5:00pm, Saturdays 7:00am-2:00pm, Sundays they are closed.  Absolute Hobbyz is open Monday-Friday 7:00am-4:00pm EST and they are closed on the weekends.
