Scrap Copper Can Add Up

When I bought an old farmhouse for a really low price, I had so many ideas for it. I wanted to remodel it, and I was able to get all of that started since I paid a fraction of what it was worth. It took me nearly six months to get the house how I wanted it, then I decided to start working on the outbuildings. There were at least a dozen of them, and I had only looked in the barn. I knew that I was going to have to find out the price of scrap copper after looking in some of the others though.

I had no idea I was going to find so much copper, and I got pretty excited about it because I know that copper can bring in a nice price. I had no clue how much copper was there, but it was at least several truckloads. I went online and did a quick search to see how much copper was going for, and that is when I found the perfect website. It not only showed me the different prices for all kinds of scrap metals, but it also listed the scrap dealers that are the closest to me too.

I am really glad that it had all of this listed, because I found out that a scrap dealer that is about 20 minutes further away was offering a lot more money for the various pieces of metals that I had accumulated from clearing out all of the buildings on my farm. It was not really so much more per pound when there is not much metal to consider, but several truckloads makes those few pennies per pound really add up. Altogether, I ended up with enough that I was able to make a nice payment on my mortgage to make my monthly payments even smaller now.
