Thousands of people use it daily and it is filled with people wanting to give you metal. So, how do you find scrap metal on Craigslist?
There are a few different ways but the best place to start is to go to the for sale category on Craigslist and click the free section. There are people who want to get rid of their stuff for free and most of the time it is metal that you can make money from. People post ads about how they have a non-working air conditioner that they want to get rid of. That is money right there! Some people will put ads up on clearing a whole house and come take all the metal. You can bank well from just watching the free section but be warned a lot of people do it! If you want to be able to make money from the free section on craigslist you have to stay on top of it. I would say check the free section every 30 minutes to an hour to keep you on top.
Another way to get metal from Craigslist is under the services category. You can post an ad and let people know you collect metal. Make a catchy title with a good description about what metal you are looking for. You can decide if you want to charge to take the metal or just take it for free. It’s usually a good idea to charge a person who wants you to take something from inside the house or down a few flights of stairs. Usually, if it is already outside there is no need to charge them but that is all up to you. It is your business, you make the rules.
There are many other ways you can take advantage of Craigslist. Explore the site and you will come up with a lot of different ideas to generate metal for yourself. The power is yours and the ideas are endless!
