"What did they do to you? Did they make you sell them material? If they said they thought you had $30 worth of scrap, could they have not estimated your weight properly? I do believe that is why they weigh the material before they pay you for it. Besides everybody knows that Taylor's pays the highest price in town for steel. People who go to Adkins, like me, go because their prices on copper, cans, and aluminum are as high as Taylor's, but their employees are friendly and you don't wait in line for ever. There isn't any reason to bad mouth a business because you didn't like the price they gave you. Sometimes Kroger sells ribeye steaks for 12.99 per pound and Foodfair sells ribeye steaks for 7.99 per pound. Doesn't mean Kroger is ripping you off. It means they have a different price. "

$30 and $110 thats a difference in price? Really? No, a difference in price is a few dollars...maybe $20....not $80

Thats trying to take advantage of someone who does not scrap often.......someone who may not know what the prices should be. Thats shady as hell.

If I went to Krogers and Paid $110 for a steak that Walmart sales for $30.00 you can bet your tail I am gonna rant about it....cause its shady!

Competitive prices aside, I agree different places give different rates but to tell someone they have $30 worth of scrap is bull. Thats not a estimate, thats trying to rip someone off.

And I don't care how friendly someone is......if you weight my stuff and tell me I have $30 worth of scrap that pans out to being $110 at another yard that smiling face is hiding lying eyes.
