Meet Steve Reisch of Junk Cars For Cash St. Louis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Steve Reisch.

Hi Steve, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I have worked with my father at his auto repair shop and body shop in South St. Louis starting in the early 70″s. I have been buying salvage cars since 1977. We buy cars, trucks, and vans, and we buy them in any condition. Junk Cars For Cash In St. Louis has been in business for over 40 years, we’ve just gone through a few different names, such as Affordable Towing.

The thing about this business is that people remember the name the way it was when they first used your service. That’s why we hang on to all of the names we’ve used thus far.

It’s very important for us to maintain our same address and phone number as well since those are two other ways people remember us. They mark us down in some sort of calendar or notebook and when the time comes, they give us a call and we go give them cash for their car.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road which many of my workers have seen firsthand. A lot of people along the way have seen what I do and tried to go out on their own and do the same thing. Most of those new competitors didn’t last more than 6 months. You have to be very consistent in this business and build trust.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Junk Cars For Cash St. Louis?
I have worked 7 days a week most of my life I don’t sit down. I work out in the elements all day, just like the post office we are at it in the rain, sleet, and snow.

We are a salvage yard that buys junk cars around the city when someone needs to get rid of an old car for a number of different reasons. Maybe it will cost them more to fix an issue than to just sell it or maybe someone passed away and they want to get the car out of their driveway. Whatever the reason may be, they give us a call, we give them a quote and then we go pick up the car.

We are known for being fast, paying our customers the same day they call, and we are known for going to pick up their car from their place of residence if the car doesn’t run. We are also known for making a fair deal every time we purchase a car. A lot of other companies are nationally owned and will not provide that touch of personal customer service that we provide.

I am really proud of our website, all of the new tow trucks that we have in our fleet, and the fact that people do remember our name and recommend their friends after using our service.

Again, we are dedicated to our customers and want each and every one of them to know that we are there for them and can be trusted to do what we say we are going to do.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love this city, including North City, South City, West County, and everything in between. Living in St. Louis for so long of course I am a huge Cardinals and Blues fan. It’s great to see the city grow and expand. I just love this city.

I support my family and depend on this business for my livelihood. This job is not for the weak of heart. My son and I run this family-owned business and hope to for many years to come because we know that St. Louis is a loyal community.
