The best way to deal with selling scrap metal is to make some calls. Many people will drive for over an hour to get to a dealer who pays well. The big issue is to figure what it would cost in gasoline to get to where they pay a few cents more a pound rather than going local and getting a few cents less, but that would be the cost in gasoline. This link goes over selling scrap metal and on the right side has some other links about how to sell and pricing: I hope this helps you getting the best amount for your scrap metal. Joan
