Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long have you been in business?

A: This October we start our 24th year in the scrap metal industry.

Q: Do you pay in advance?

A: Sometimes. Each order and customer is unique. We do our best to meet your accounting-requirements.

Q: Do you issue Letters of Credit?

A: Yes. It depends on the customer, order size, location, frequency, and cost-structure (see the process below).

  • Minimum 500 MT order to open an LC.
  • Sometimes we open the LC directly to the Supplier.
  • In most cases the LC is open to our company. We provide a Consignment of Proceeds to the Supplier. Meaning once we exercise the LC and receive funds, automatically, out of our control, a specified dollar amount is wired directly to the Supplier. We provide you all LC details in advance for verification.

A: We exercise our LCs with Bank of America Trade Operations in Los Angeles.
