Selling scrap - good experience with boardsort.com

Postby beachbum1975 » May 30th, 2011, 7:13 pm

Hey all,

Just wanted to post a quick message to say I had a nice time working with chris@boardsort.com. He gave me fair value for my scrap metals, paid me promptly and had very good with communications via email. His name on this website is "Goldwasser" but it's best (well, faster) to email him directly at his email address (mentioned above).

If you have some scrap to move at a good, competitive price, shoot him an email!

Shane

I'm happy with Boardsort too. We agreed on a price, I've already been paid and will deliver in person this weekend.
The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

[blush] Thanks Mike! [/blush]

Shadybear, we are located in Eastlake, OH which is an eastern suburb of Cleveland. We have a 10,000 sq ft facility with full size loading docks and lifts. So we can handle just about any shipment or delivery that comes our way.

That means green circuit boards that have a poor ratio of chips -vs- junk. For example, a board that has heavy heatsinks and/or bus bars, oversize capacitors etc and little to no IC's, gold pins or other PM's would be mid-grade.

Here is an example of a mid-grade board. Notice the large population of relays, capacitors and other non-precious components and lack of IC's and gold pins.

What would a board like you have pictured above go per pound?
What would you call the value items on the board?

Thanks

Right now we are paying $0.40 a pound for mid-grade.

That was a two part question. :lol:
It would probably be easier for me to ask it like this. What do you consider is valuable on the above board and what is trash?

What is the price difference between mid and high grade?
Also do you buy just components removed from boards? Say a bucket full of them relays like on the board above, or does your company just deal in whole boards? How about completely stripped boards? Do you buy them for copper content alone?

$0.40 is a significantly low price for that category of boards. This comment is obviously for the benefit of members of this forum.

What is valuable to one person, may not be worth much to another. I'm not qualified enough to place a value on the individual components, that is best left for the experienced refiners that frequent these forums.

All I can offer is my judgement as to whether I will pay for board(s) in one of four classes. Telecom ($4.80 lb), Motherboard ($4.30 lb), Mid-Grade ($0.40 lb) or Low grade ($0.17 lb). I strive to be as fair as possible.

As far as completely stripped boards, that is something we probably would not be interested in.

I sold 31 lbs. of motherboards to Boardsort after sending pix for Chris to evaluate.
PROS:
Paid upfront
Paid immediately
Good response time

CONS: (For some)
Pays via PayPal - had to pay $4.17 mordida on $133.30 (I know Harold, but i needed the money!)
I paid shipping (but in fairness, all VERY clearly stipulated on website)

SUMMARY:
A very good experience for me.

I paid approx. $0.69/lb. for parcel post,
plus an extra $0.134 for paypal,
bringing total costs to $0.824/lb.
I was payed $4.30/lb. that day, so my net was $3.476/lb., or $107.756 for the entire transaction.

As i have no board buyers in my area, this was a profitable transaction for me and I would have no problem recommending them to anyone here.

I'm not a rep for the company, just a client.
But Chris posts his e-mail address here, & gives personalized quotes if it is warranted.
Feel free to contact him - he can give you more info.

Hello Kobe,

Currently I consider cards with fingers removed as motherboard grade. Today I am paying $4.30 a pound for that grade.

Visit my website http://boardsort.com for a list of what I buy and the price I will pay.

Hope we can be a service to you.

Oh, and thanks for passing the info along Dtectr.

No problem - it was a pleasure.
I feel that this type of review would be more helpful than merely a FeeBay-style "A++". Those are ok, too, better than none :P just not as informative to me. I personally like (for anyone under 40 - from the original TV series "Dragnet") Seargent Friday-style "Just the facts, Ma'am." type.
Hope it helps board members make educated choices.

I filled my go kart trailer last Saturday with stuff from my storage unit. The items included CD-ROM drives, old laptops, non-working flat panel monitors, motherboards, low-grade power supply boards, RAM, cut RAM, power supplies minus the pigtail, and other miscellaneous items. I drove to Boardsort warehouse, came home with $3966 dollars in my pocket. This was in addition to what Chris had prepaid for my 69 pounds of cut and uncut RAM earlier in the week.

My wife said "keep scrapping, honey" when I was handed the cash.

I'll do it again as soon as I can! VERY nice people.
