Common Questions About Scrap Metal Pickups

How does a scrap metal pick up work?

When we schedule a pick up with you we can either provide you with a container on your job site to load at your convenience or we can do a “live load”. With a wide variety of container sizes available, once we figure out your needs we will deliver the container or truck to your place of pick up.

If you decide you have to a container dropped off, we can leave it there for as long as you need it. Once you think it is starting to get full, give us a call and we can come pick up the container or switch it out with a new one, if you need to continue to fill it with materials.

If you decide to do a “live load”, we will bring our container and truck to your facility to load the material on site while we wait for the job to be completed. Once we have the container loaded on the truck it will make it’s way back to our yard.

Once it arrives at our yard, we input all of the weights, contact information, and details into our computer system for your records. Once the job is completed you can come by our facility to receive cash for the pick up or you can request a check be sent to you.

How much will I get paid for my scrap?

The prices of scrap metal are constantly changing and altering based on the current market. While it would be easy to have a simple price for everything, there are a number of factors that will determine the price, including but not limited to; prices, distance, material, handling, equipment, and weight. Once you contact us through our website with details about your job, we can provide you with a much more detailed answer and give you the breakdown of costs.

How quickly can you pick up my material?

Generally, we schedule our trucks out a few days in advance. Fill out the contact information above and we will get in contact with you within 1-2 business days and give you some further details of our availability.

How much do I have to have to get it picked up?

Generally we say anything over 5000lbs. is of interest to us. If you aren’t sure how much weight you have, send us a couple pictures of the metal and send it to us in the above contact form.

Can you pick up items from my house?

Unfortunately, we do not do residential pickups for your scrap metal. The only types of pickups we do are commericial and industrial. Our suggestion is looking in the local newspaper for a junk company to do a free pickup of your material.

Do you pick up things besides metals?

No, we do not pick any non-metallic items. We suggest asking your local municipality for their services for junk and garbage pick ups.
