Start A Scrap Metal Hauling Business

If you do not mind getting dirty and are passionate about helping keep the environment green, consider starting the scrap metal hauling business.

Hauling scrap metals and recycling or selling them to metal fabricators might be a profitable business. To start, you need a truck and a trailer, and a space where you can store and sort out the scrap metals.

Starting a metal hauling business lets you choose your working hours and be your own boss.

Case Study

My name is Marc Staples. I am the founder of DowhHomeModern and the Lago Luna Lakeside Studio in Virginia. With the recent introduction of my original designs of windbells and chimes, DownHomeModern is gaining attention as an educator as well as a producer of quality products. Each Frontier Bell that we sell embraces the history of the place it is named for.

In 2021 I created a collection of small bells based on American Southwest decor. I call the line our Frontier Mission Bells™. The rustic style of these products has grabbed the attention of people who like their homespun appearance. The Frontier Bells has been the primary driver of sales for DownHomeModern. The example below is called “San Gabriel”. It is named after a Spanish Mission in San Gabriel, California.
