07:31 - “I talked to a bunch of different Amazon sellers and online sellers when I moved back to Chicago and I asked them all, ‘Do you trust your inspections company?’--including brick and mortar sellers. And every answer I got was to the tune of, ‘I don’t trust my inspections company but it’s better than doing nothing.” - Sajag Agarwal
09:17 - “Movley, the way we do it, is about two to three times more effective than other companies in the industry. And then we’re working on building tech and all kinds of cool stuff to get to that 10x level. We want to be as close to perfect as we can get.” - Sajag Agarwal
13:01 - “So factories have the incentive of producing the cheapest products that you want to buy. So as long as you keep buying the products, they like to go a little bit cheaper after every order.” - Sajag Agarwal
30:38 - “And that’s really what’s critical, is that there is a human element that goes into the inspection process.” - Sajag Agarwal
