Where You Can Find Scrap Metal Online

Craigslist Is A Good Place To Start

We have said it plenty of times before, but we want to remind you that using the daily postings in your direct area can greatly increase the amount of scrap you can be hauling in every week. Remember the posts online are always being updated, taken down, and added, so be sure to check often. It is a good idea to check first thing in the week and perhaps a few other times during the week. If you are really looking for a lot be sure to check a few times daily. With this simple video below, you will be able to see how quickly and easily you can find scrap through Craigslist.

Your Own Friends & Family

Use your friends, family, and maybe even some strangers you meet through social media to advertise your business. If you know someone in the area you will be working coming up shoot them a message asking if they have any junk or scrap they are looking to get rid of. You can use the existing connections that you have to look and advertise your services through those outlets.

Have You Checked The Classified Ads?

Using the classified sections within your local newspapers online you can search multiple resources for the surrounding areas and their recent posts. You can check this section for any moving pickups needed, garage sales going on, clean outs, and more.

Using the different sources and outlets online to search for scrapping options will be easy once you figure out the best places to get in touch with. You can also use these new outlets as ways to meet more clients to give you card and information to so that they can spread the word to their friends and family about your helpful services. If you are ever in a newer area and you aren’t sure where to find a scrap yard, be sure to use the iScrap App mobile or app (iOS or Droid) while on the go.
