Good products, great service. Just I wish the prices would be more affordable. Currently, it is x3 more expensive than other local suppliers are offering.

Average mild steel price per lb at Metal supermarket is $3,00.
Other suppliers are offering for $0.75 per lb.

The convenience of getting small, last minute material orders when you don’t have time to wait for our materials to come in. Also, sometimes it’s a material we don’t usually use and a small amount and not worth having a large crop sitting in our rack with a small likely hood of using it on another job.
