Steve Borock interview - move to Dallas6041

Collector Redshade private msg quote post Address this user
I have been a member here for nearly two years and have sent off several lots to be graded and encapsulated and I have always been pleased with the final results.

The last lot of ten comics took 22 weeks to arrive which is about the same as the first lot all those months ago.

I have another group of comics to send but with a TAT of nearly 6 months coupled with a relocation that is going to take until June with all the problems of transporting current submissions to a different facility I am quite frankly scared of sending anything to CBCS at this current time.

I shall wait to see what happens of course but my next submission is not going to be here.

I do not know if this has been asked/answered as yet, so my apologies if this is a repeat. Is it the intent to move the press/clean operation of CBCS to the Dallas area as well? I heard that they are staying in Florida.

Are you part of CBCS and can you guarantee that this is true?

@Redshade First pinned thread "CBCS Turnaround" post #12 by Tim Bildhauser (a CBCS employee) states TATs at 12 weeks one week ago. Steve Borock also mentioned it on an interview on Monday.

Also, before this gets screwed up, Steve Borock addressed if grading would be effected because of the move. His reply was that grading would effectively stop for 4 days with two of those days being Friday and Saturday. Steve said it will take two days of traveling just going from Florida to Texas.

Your "effected" should be "affected".

Sorry

@JLS_Comics I hit the link about 10 minutes before Steve Borock arrived and remained for the entire duration of the live-cast. It was informative and a lot of fun. Thanks for hosting this!

And Fast Track modern/expanded/consumer as well as raw grade are right at six weeks, based on books I just received.

TAT's have improved.

Thanks, guys! We had a few other topics on the schedule but we ran long on the CBCS topic and the conversation just flowed in to a variety of other topics (as you saw lol) Steve is a great guest! We had him on when the news broke of the Beckett/CBCS merger last year as well. One of our goals was to get all the right information out from the start and I think we accomplished that!
