Default Alro steel

Has anyone used Alro steel?

There are like 3 locations within 2 hours of me with Grand Rapids being the closest.

I will need 220 feet of 1.75x120 and 40 feet of 1.5x120 in mostly 5 foot sections.

Am I going to get a decent price and service with Alro? Or would I be better off driving to the chassisshop. Any other shop or steel supplier I am open to also like Factory steel (GR).

I have never dealt with buying dom before so a bit of first hand experience before calling a company and placing a order would be reassuring.

I have used the one in Grand Blanc a couple times now. Good people to deal with and decent prices if you buy a larger quantity.

Our shop uses them pretty good pricing and always next day delivery for us if you order before two o'clock in the afternoon.
I buy from a guy named jason cook..I can get his number on monday if ur interested.
only thing I notice is they dont often have oddball stuff like galvanized expanded metal on hand.

Also another good one is elenbaas steel out of greenville...used to deal with them..

I work in gr also
