These are the Current Metal Prices. Our Non-Ferrous prices usually change on Mondays, But if the market drops drastically mid-week, a change might happen!
Our Ferrous prices are usually good for the month unless the market drops a lot sometime through the month and then we may have to change our prices too.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any time and without notice as the market can drop quite a bit at any time on any day.
Pick up? Yes, we pick up vehicles and other scrap metal.
Is there a charge for this? Yes, based on location. Call for Information!
Iowa state law requires us to receive a title, junking certificate, or authority to demolish for every vehicle we accept. No exceptions. No payment until we receive valid paperwork!
To confirm prices or for special pricing for large loads just call our office.
