When’s The Best Time To Sell Scrap?
And Why It’s Important To Find Scrap Prices…
One of the best things to do is to check online for prices whether it is through your local scrap yards website or through the prices that other scrappers in your area are posting online through the Report Your Price feature on the iScrap App’s website.
Yes, Prices Can Change THAT Quickly
When you are shopping around for the best scrap prices in your region, it’s important to stay updated on the current prices that yards are offering. In the morning, some prices could be up a few cents, but could quickly fall in the afternoon, or just the opposite. Like stock brokers, many scrap yard owners and managers are constantly watching the futurecasts for scrap metal prices and commodities. It’s important to stay updated with them and their current prices so you can make a quick decision to sell off some scrap.
Prices are a tough thing to guess…and even tougher to stomach if you don’t know what is going on before you get to the scrap yard. Especially now with the steel prices at historic lows and copper prices fluctuating a lot recently, it’s important to stay updated with the current market conditions.
Knowing is half of the battle and you always want to know.
