What Customers Are Saying

First of all, this place is the cleanest scrap yard that i have ever been to. I had no worries about getting a flat tire because its so clean. Anthony made everything go so smooth. I also got a visit from Chewy the “Guard” dog. This will be my go-to scrap yard from now on. The entire staff was great.

Rodney Brackett

Very helpful from the moment I came on the property. I got the most money out of what I bring here. Anthony swept my trailer off after glass shattered off the car I brought. If you got scrap this is the place to bring it everyone he has a smile on there face and are happy to help.
