Did you take it in or was it picked up ?9natho9 wrote:we recently scrapped a dual cab triton (just bare shell) and a few other bits and pieces, came to about 250kg all up, and got less than $5 for the lot, not even enough to cover fuel costs, but still better than paying to take it to the tip
Mackay being a reasonable town, would have expected a bit of competition and maybe a little more for 1/4 tonne . . . maybe it is just that low now, but doubt it.
There's also the distance to freight it as well, I guess.
Steel taken in to a depot should be getting around $120 a tonne now, I just phone mine down the road to check and that's their current price.
As mentioned before, I got $200 a tonne some years ago for 2 loads, the old double garrage and a work load collected over a decade or more.
