    Small Time Scrapper Big Time Hall. Atleast for me.

    So I did my normal monthly scrap hall from the only guy in town on Friday, and he told me to comeback on Monday because I was off work. I pulled up and seen a small load of maybe 4 desktops and maybe 2 or 3 Laptops. Not the normal load but it's ok. So the owner comes out and says " Do you have time to run to my storage." Of course I do I reply. I'm thinking a few more computers because I know he didn't have time to go through his stash. Lesson # 1: Don't judge. So I follow him to the storage and he opens up the door. Lesson # 2: Stay calm. 41 desktops and laptops later I loaded my truck and was on my way home.
    I'll try and post some pics.

    That's a nice score!
    Got to love it when they say there is "another" pile at x location. Those are the best, it's like Christmas.

    great score!

    separate by style before you break them down, I used to do 20-60 at a time, it helps

    Nice score. It should be a nice little payday. I always love when they ask you to go with them somewhere else. It's always a nice surprise.

    Following someone to a storage shed gets the blood flowing lol. You know they want to get rid of a lot of things and you may end up with a great haul! That was an awesome score.
