    I was going to go with "Pedal to the Metal". It implies speedy service, or at least in my head it does. But would customers get it? I dunno. Anyways I went with something else.

    I like Full Circle.

    Something with what you do in the name. Like (your town) electronics and metal recycling. Whatever you do, don't leave people confused about what you do.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    need ideas on what to call my business!

    I did BC Repurposing as mine to represent myself and otherhalf and what we do... we reuse, repurpose and recycle.

    i scrap many things but nicer stuff or stuff i can easily repair from other salvaged stuff / scrap gets fixed and donated off.

    I may not get rich doing this but donating back to day cares and special needs people among others tends to both bring in more business but it also makes me happy to give back to the comunity too.

    My ewaste company is called Sustainable Solutions Hawaii. I started by working mostly with computer repair places and private residents but have since been working almost exclusively with local junk removal businesses.

    This would probably be your best bet as it should help your name come up on google searches. Pedal to the metal is fun, but if you search it, you are probably gonna find a whole lot of youtoob videos about people drifting their civics... Just my .02.

    need ideas on what to call my business!

    *Side note* I don't know about everyone else, but I don't think putting scrapper in the title is the way to go... Some might say not professional, and yet some still look down on a "scrapper", yet not so much as a "recycler". Stupid, I know, but just a thought.

    I like full circle also, or as Mick said, use your town name, etc. You'll pop up in the searches for sure. Voodoo has it right tho about the scrapper part an the youtube thing..lol.

    Canuck Recycling! Then again people might think your just recycling your fellow Canadians..heh.

    Good luck an let us know what you come up with!
