Top service, not much more I can say.

I have been using these guys for 10 years and never had reason to complain. They are ALWAYS polite and helpful whether you are a seasoned scrapper or just getting rid of a one off load. Fast payment and really recommended.

Fantastic Service. These guys are always polite and willing to help out at a moments notice. We use them on a regular basis and would not think about going anywhere else. Outstanding team of guys, honest, cheerful and great customer service.

Rude service expect to be looked down upon

Very RUDE staff. Asked for use of weighbridge and when it was available was had a quite nasty refusal, and I was quite polite.

Honesty best Policy

These guys picked up a load of iron from my farm. Got a call later to say they had found some electric motors when they unloaded and they would fetch more money.Didnt know they were there. ( think left by ex-employee) . They didn't have to let me know. I would have been non the wiser. Will obviously get them back when pile builds up again.
