Hello, I own a wire processing plant in Allentown, PA. For the last two years we only bought from scrap yards, wire manufacturers and utility companies. We are opening our doors to contractors and I am having a hard time determining when to be open.
I would be grateful for any feedback you guys could give me as to what hours you feel would be good for us to be open for you. For example, would you all prefer mornings, later in the evening? What about Saturday hours?
I would suggest being open when the ECs are able to drop off their scrap wire at the end of the day. Late afternoon or evening would be good for weekdays. Most of the guys I kow who work Saturdays are in a rush to get back home so I don't know if being open Saturdays would be worthwhile. Just my 2 cents worth...

As for stolen property, to be honest, we have given it a little thought. We take drivers license info off every customer and have that info. We also work closely with local police. Our problem is we are just not sure what else to do. Up until now we never opened to the general public and so I really didn't have to worry much about it.
