At SouthCoast Metal Recycling, our customers always come first, so we will work with you to come to a price that works for both of us. However, due to the nature of what we do, pricing often fluctuates.

    Why Pricing Fluctuates

    The fluctuation of the pricing of scrap metals is influenced by a variety of factors. The primary factors that influence pricing are the cost of energy and production, supply and demand, and the cost of virgin metals.

    Economic factors can severely impact the price of certain metals. For example, a dramatic increase in home construction can inflate the price of copper while an extreme housing crisis can significantly deflate the price of copper. Due to this, we aren’t able to guarantee that our current prices will stay the same for very long. However, regardless of current circumstances, we always do our best to ensure that our prices are fair and competitive.
