BRW has had an account for over 10 years. I think the fact that we are a c-Corp makes it easier to convince them.

Our treasurer set this up, so I don't know all the details, but one of the concerns they had was  that we make a commitment to sell any parts at normal market prices. They were concerned about non-profit shops selling things below commercial shops and making it difficult for those shops to (JBI's other customers) to compete. I don't recall whether they needed a formal signed agreement to that effect or not.

Also, we want to maintain the positive relationship we have with area shops, so this seemed like a reasonable thing to do. Of course, on a case by case basis, you could decide to help a client out, but large-scale undercutting of commercial shops is a bad idea.
