how much do scrap yards charge? Answered

i wanted to visit a scrap yard to pick up a bike(bmx or mountain) and some other scrap how and what rates do they charge?


Most charge the scrap value + a bit of a profit. Just don't get over enthusiastic about a find, huff and puff a bit, say you only want a bit off the thing, but its too much hassle to take the bits off there and then, and you'll buy the whole thing for their convenience.... Agree on a price BEFORE you haul the damned thing out of the pile, after finding it. That way they won't wind up the price on you when you get your prize (been there, had that done to me)

steveastrouk you are right .I agree with you.
