I'm in Dallas but planning on moving back to Arkansas pretty soon - been away for 20 years. Of course my first Google was on LCS's in the area.

That's not me or my dog - but it's an Anatolian Shepherd - I had one the same size - miss him, but just too powerful to live in a house.
They are actually used in Africa to guard Wild Big Cats from Poachers!
Mine was about 190cm and 100kg

I could see a grading company such as CBCS opening another location, I'd vote for in Seattle as it would help pull a lot of business down from the Vancouver Canada area and surrounding areas. A full operation that could encapsulate the books here, as well as at the main base of operations in Florida. Would result in lower shipping costs for the consumer by sending to a west coast center and lighten the load on the Florida center and also result in books possibly being graded and returned to the customers even quicker. It's only a matter of time before one of the grading companies opens up a west coast location, might as well be CBCS. ;-)

I would love a Seattle grading company, but of course I live in Seattle and am biased.

Don't open in California. The cost of running a business here is too expensive.

In order to handle the workload that CBCS has to contend with, I am wholly confident that CBCS graders consistently do all that is required of them.

There is no cause for a mirrored facility in another part of the country.With all due respect, I would say that neither CGC or CBCS will ever open a second facility.

Both companies will continue to expand and hire more staff, as needed, to keep production in line with consumer demand.

CBCS does not need a second facility to "draw in business" from Seattle, Canada, or anywhere else.

The overwhelming majority of books that CBCS and CGC grade & encapsulate are shipped to them from collectors world wide.And to a lesser degree, received at conventions.

You are completely overlooking the financial expense with opening & operating a second facility.

CBCS's operating expenses would be doubled.

There is the purchasing of additional encapsulation machinery, the rental of the second office & the work space involved in shipping/receiving and storage and encapsulation, doubling their workforce from customer service reps, pre-graders, graders,a finalizer (Borock cannot clone himself),
CBCS or CGC will never open up a second facility, there is literally no benefit for CBCS or CGC to do so.

This would cause a grading company to bleed money and it would all be done for reasons that are just about completely redundant.


How would CBCS (or CGC) cover and offset the 100% increase in operating costs?

There are no investors out there that would support such a venture, the cost in relation to the return would be ridiculously high.

That said, the cost of CBCS's grading fees would see a very large increase.

In turn, all but the most loyal of CBCS customers would turn to the competition to have their books graded.

At that point, CBCS would continue to lose even more money.Remember, their operating costs are now at 200%, so this would be a very hurtful to CBCS.

Now, they are screwed on several levels.

Ultimately, this would only benefit CGC.

It should go without saying that the roles here between CBCS and CGC are completely interchangable.

If either CGC or CBCS were to open a second facility, they would be doing their competition a very big favor.

CopperAgeKids hit the nail on the head.

I think a much better idea would be for CBCS to invest in a mobile encapsulation unit, so they can grade and encapsulate on site at Cons.

On site grading is the number one killer of turn around times due to the logistics and the amount of staff involved.

Eh, just sayin'...CBCS is hiring more staff to deal with such potential issues.

Based on another comment you posted elsewhere on this forum, I think you just don't like onsite grading

...I remember you posting you had a Star Wars 1 that was graded onsite by CGC...and you resubbed it to CGC, and it came back a point or so higher.

One bad apple (or a marginally unsavory experience with onsite grading) doesn't ruin the batch.

Onsite grading will surely increase the number of submissions that CBCS receives at any given show, where onsite grading is offered.

From some of those submissions, CBCS is likely to have gained (repeat) customers, that they may have not had gained, if the customers were not drawn in by onsite grading.

If a show is big enough for CBCS to offer onsite grading, CGC will be at that same show, offering onsite grading.

To continue to increase CBCS's marketshare and brand visibility,CBCS needs to compete with CGC on all fronts.

That is why CBCS is hiring more people, across the board, in every department.
