Tip #1: Build Strong Relationships with Our Sales Team

If you’re just planning to make one purchase, then any of our sales representatives are happy to help. We know, however, that after that first purchase, you’ll be back to make frequent surplus steel purchases. That’s why developing a good relationship with one specific sales representative will always be in your best interest. When you work with one specific staff member every time, they will always know the best way to guide you to the materials, sizes, and equipment you need. They can also ensure you get the very best deal for your budget.

Tip #2: See for Yourself

For the highest chances of success when buying surplus steel, you’re always better off visiting in person to see everything with your own eyes. We always provide the specifics for width, length, thickness, and condition in our online listings and descriptions, but there is no substitute for putting your hands on the materials you need to make sure it’s exactly what the job requires. Our stock is meticulously categorized and inventoried, so we know exactly how to find what you need, when you need it. If the product you had in mind turns out to be a bad fit, our sales representatives can direct you immediately to stock that does meet your needs. And, as always, if we don’t have it, we will get it for you. This helps to minimize wasted time for returns and wasted material that simply doesn’t fit.
