Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is cutting included with the purchase of metal?
A: Cutting and processing services vary depending on price. Check with our staff at the time of purchase for cost options.
Q: What is the best way to transport the metal?
A: It is best to transport the material around in an area with adequate space. This will help ensure safety both to yourself and the metal. We typically recommend using pipe rack, trailer, or personal vehicle. However, it does depend on what you are purchasing and transporting.
Q: Does Short Iron Store offer any transporting services?
A: Yes. We base our cost on the size and weight of the material purchased. Depending on the order, it can be transported for free or at the current market transportation minimum cost. Each order is evaluated at the time of purchase.
Q: Is the price reduced when you get the exact amount of metal cut rather than purchasing a larger length of metal?
A: Yes. Overall, smaller pieces of metal may cost most per inch due to custom size, but at the end it will be much less than purchasing the full amount of material. This will bring the overall budget in and under material cost. Most importantly, you do not have to deal with excesses waste.
Q: Do you recommend certain metals for certain projects?
A: It depends! We help our customers research and identify the right material based on their specific project.
Q: Is there someone on site that can recommend a specific type of metal?
A: Yes. Our staff has extensive knowledge and are more than happy to make recommendations.
Q: Is ordering an option if the material wanted is not available?
A: Yes. We buy from markets throughout the country in order to provide you with the best outcome for your material project cost at the best cost.
Q: How long does it usually take for orders to come in?
A: Most of the time orders come in the same day or in 1-3 business days. Sometimes size and material can be the deciding factor.
