At Always Buying Scrap, we can help you with the unloading of whatever scrap you bring. Whether it needs to be lifted, pushed, or pulled off your vehicle, our scrapyard has a piece of equipment to help you:
We charge a nominal fee to pick up your vehicle. Some of our competitors claim to offer ‘free’ towing. They build the cost of picking up your car into what they pay, so it’s not free.
Our policy is to be upfront with our costs to you. You are getting appropriately paid for your vehicle with a small fee for towing. We profit from the purchase of the car, not from the tow. Our tow fee merely covers our cost. You will come out ahead by choosing us. We pride ourselves on transparency, and our policy is no hidden costs.
North Carolina law dictates how and what we purchase. Always Buying Scrap remains compliant with all county, state, and federal laws. Please consider the following:

We buy 40″ x 48″ 4-way pallets at our retail location in Durham. We are currently paying $3 per pallet delivered.
Pallets must be 4-way, meaning they must be able to be picked up from all four sides by a forklift or pallet jack. Pallets with broken runners, in poor general condition, or other sizes are not accepted.
Always Buying Scrap also buys pallets at its Roxboro location at 1983 Perkins Drive, Roxboro. This site is not open to the public, so if you have pallets for sale close to this location, please call Brandon at 844-4840-ONLY (844-4840-0665).
We provide pickup service to factories, warehouses, welding and fabrication shops, defense contractors and machine shops, automotive rebuilders, truck and heavy equipment repair shops, railroads, plumbing, electrical, HVAC contractors and supply houses, municipalities, and more.
Are we doing a rigging job? We buy boilers, cooling towers, and air conditioning units.
Suppose you’re reconfiguring your factory and need to dispose of pallet racking, shelving, partitions, or office furniture. In that case, whether you need one-time service for a particular project or need a pick-up regularly, we’re the people to call. If you’re upgrading machinery or laboratory equipment and need the old stuff hauled off, that’s right up our alley.
