I wish I could give negative stars to this company. They may be ok to recycle tin cans but BEWARE of selling autos here. Initially, the tow truck driver was supposed to arrive at my home at 9 am on a set day but was a no-show. This ultimately turned out to be a good thing because when I went there in person I discovered the following: 1. The office personnel, Amanda, would sign the title (and even then grudgingly), but not give the money to me. 2. The tow truck driver could not sign the title & would not give the money to me until he arrived at my home to tow the car; thus, signing the title over to the company & receiving the money could not be done at one location!!! If I signed the title at the office, the car would belong to Central Florida Recycling Center with no guarantee the tow truck driver would pay the quoted amount, or pay at all. If done in reverse ie. the tow truck driver showed up at my home, paid for the car and towed it away, I had no guarantee the office would then sign the title. Before contacting this company I had read the procedures for selling a car and transferring the title in Volusia County which stipulated that both buyer and seller sign and date the title. If Central Florida's Recycling Center's method is not illegal, it is at least extremely unprofessional and could put the seller in an untenable position with the state. The situation did not seem right to me, I informed Amanda I would not do this type of deal. She shrugged and said ok. Fortunately I found American Auto Salvage & Recycling in Debary who actually weighed my car first (and I gained $45.00 more than Central FL Recycling offered), signed the title, had me identify myself with photo ID and a thumbprint, signed the title and paid the money AT THE SAME TIME!Many thumbs down for the shady manner in which Central FL Recycling conducts business and more thumbs down for Amanda.
What a first rate company! They deliver what they promise. I only had three days to clean out my storage unit and called this company and they deliv…
Took all my stuff before offering me a price that was way too low. Total ripoff. I will not use this place again.
I think it's funny how people like Yolanda over here thinks people scrapping illegal materials are the ones who gave central Florida recycling a bad name. Their owner and supervisor are the ones that got them shut down for a minute. Criminals use all the scrap yards they just get clever or get caught. This place is as good/bad as the rest.
Their website says they pay top dollar & match or beat any price, & when I called they said NO! We don't do that!--then don't advertise it! Everyone else is paying more, I called three places. You're not paying top dollar, you're not even paying the same as everyone else, YOU ARE PAYING THE LEAST. .40 cents. For aluminum cans Hahaha. Everyone else is paying .50 cents.
Cannot beat the prices anywhere and the amount of time to get serviced. In and out.
I use to go here but found out about florida recycling through a friend so went there and it was great. No waiting they get you in and out. People are very nice, they seem honest help you unload your stuff, give u the best prices the overall atmosphere was so much better.Thanks Jon for the new place.
This was my first time here and it wont be my last. I use to have to wait in line for ever but I found Florida recycling and I am in and out. They have the greatest crew, very friendly and helpful. And prices are very good.
Used to go here as well but then heard they put air under their scales so that they can pay much more when you're not actually getting any more. It's an illusion to get your business when they are tricking you into thinking you're getting more. My weights were all off. Better off going to the place down the road that has been in business over 30 years.
I use them all the time. The owner is there almost everyday, and he's a really nice guy! He always takes the time to help other customers sort their stuff, and explains how to get more money for something. They are set up like a drive through and you are in the building while they unload you, so you don't get wet if its raining. The women from the office will come out and give my son candy sometimes. They are a smaller business, but treat us right. The friendly service keeps me coming back.
I used to go to you guys all the time and never thought about check my tickets because I always got a good price. Recenlty a friend of mine told me to weigh my stuff at home before going in. Yes you do pay higher than anyone in town but I get less money because my 23 pounds of copper ended up being 17 pounds. my 5 gallon lowes bucket weighs two pounds not 6 pounds but you refuse to weigh my bucket separately. that's crap. I wont be coming back!
