Your company name says FREE Metal Take, So why are you charging a fee for all pick-ups?

We Started this metal pick-up service in 2011 and the scrap metal prices that we get paid for were high enough so that we can run the business and pay the bills. However since spring of this year (2015) the value of scrap metal has unexpectedly dropped to $0 (ZERO) for steel & the other metals has dropped BELOW half & continues to drop. That means we get paid FAR LESS than half for the SAME load but our bills do not become less.

So to keep this great service going, at this time we must charge a small fee for ALL pick-ups to help cover the costs. However we will do our best to provide free / low fees service. We Do NOT anticipate on this lasting a long time, HOWEVER just like the stock market the scrap market is unpredictable. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for your understanding.

What do you guys do?

We are a scrap metal & junk pick-up service. We go to your location and pick-up & recycle unwanted scrap metal, junk, computers & car batteries. Then we recycle them for you.

If you take metal for free, then how do you make money?

We DID offer free local pick-ups because we USED TO get paid a small amount to drop-off the metal to our local yard (depending on the weight & type of metal), HOWEVER AT THIS TIME THE SCRAP METAL VALUE IS ALMOST WORTHLESS. SO WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE A FREE SERVICE AT THIS TIME.

You get money for the scrap. So why do you charge for non local pick-ups & a removal fee?

At this time we are a small company & we try to keep our fees as low as possible, but like everybody else we do have bills to pay (employees, gas, tolls, rent, insurance etc).

Also the scrap prices go up & down (like the stock market) & the price depends on the type of metal. We also have to spend some time gutting the wires & different types of metals from the appliances. So there is a lot more involved than just "cashing in the scrap".

Why don't you take CRT (Tubed) TVs or monitors?

CRT (Tubed) TVs & monitors need to be recycled differently because the glass screen is under pressure and there are gasses in the flat screens. So at this time we do not take them HOWEVER we are looking in to some options that would allow us to pick them up and recycle them.

Back to top

How do I pay for any fee(s)?

We will email or text you an invoice and you can pay through PayPal, Cash OR Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover Amex / American Express). Due to the high risk of checks, we DO ACCEPT CHECKS as a last resort. However we prefer our other methods of payment. Checks can be made payable to FreeMetalTake.com LLC.

Are you insured?

Yes. Feel free to contact us & we can show you proof of insurance.
