How We Determine Scrap Metal Pricing

Just how easy is it to Get Weighed and Get Paid? People tell us all the time that they’ve never stopped in before… just because they don’t know how to sell scrap or where to go. Well, the where to go is easy – Smith Iron and Metal! The how is easy too, but we’re happy to explain it in detail.

How to Sell Scrap

First: Find some scrap! We’ve written plenty of blogs about this, and it’s a fairly easy process once you know what you’re looking for. Our “What We Buy” page lists the types of scrap we’re after. Don’t hesitate to call us either – we’ll be happy to answer any questions about your scrap!

Second: bring whatever you’ve got up to the lot! We’ll check you in then get some basic info from you. Once that’s done, we’ll weigh your truck and get a loaded weight.

Third: We’ll help you unload whatever you’ve got! Just roll past the scale and we’ll help you get all of your scrap sorted and out of your vehicle.

Fourth: Roll back over the scale so we can see how much scrap you dropped off,  then collect your money and go about your day!

Get Paid!

It really is that simple. We’ve got a great team of guys that are there to help, and we’d be happy to walk you through the entire process in person or over the phone. We want you to feel comfortable with Smith Iron and Metal, even if you’re new to the scrapping business. We like to keep it simple – Get Weighed and Get Paid isn’t just a slogan!

For more information, send us a message on our Facebook page, contact us online or give us a call at 804-271-1239! We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about the process. We look forward to speaking with you!
