They do private/closed auctions to registered/licensed "buyers" only (wreckers, dismantlers, recyclers) - not
to the general public.
How expensive is it to open the business 'Alozzy's EV Dismantlers' ?
LOL, believe or not, I did give it some thought, to the extent that I priced out commercial leases for garage space. With the state of innovation now; from people like Emile, Dala, and others; it's becoming much easier for a non genius to do battery swaps...
Tools, cables, and other devices from EVs Enhanced in NZ, the Muxsan CAN bridge, code enhancement and knowledge transfer from Dala and others - battery swaps should soon become a profitable business, once the supply chain for used battery packs reaches maturity.
However, for me right now, it comes back to the same problem...
It's hard enough to find one reasonably priced 40 kWh pack in Vancouver. I think I'd quickly have a long list of customers with no batteries to offer them. I have no burning desire to become the next Fenix
