How we handle mail-in lots


Gold is received and checked in, gold will be sorted and an initial estimate of types of scrap and value will be e-mailed or phoned to customer. If customer agrees to that price then the metal is processed within 24 hours and a check will be mailed. If customer does not agree with the prices then the scrap will be returned in the same condition it was received within 24 hours. There is no processing of scrap until the customer “gives the go”.
