Payment Guidelines

First-time customers will need to show a valid photo ID so we can set up an account for you. After weighing your material, you sign your receipt at the payment window and receive a ticket to obtain your cash at our ATM machine, located on site.

South Carolina state law requires a permit to sell any non-ferrous metals like copper or brass, excluding aluminum cans. This can be acquired at your local sheriff’s office. If you are selling any copper items, we are required to pay via check, but all other items can be paid in cash.

Vehicles being sold must be older than 12 years old and should be towed in if a title isn’t available.
