After looking at all factors including market conditions over the past several months, we have decided not to reopen our Houghton Lake location. With market prices the way they are currently it simply doesn’t make good business sense for us to resume business at that location, so we are permanently closing it effective immediately. We […]

I've been bringing metal to Fair Salvage for 15 years or better. You guys have always treated me like family up there and I don't wanna go anywhere else. I've been to other places and don't like the way they treat me. You guys have always treated me with the most understanding and help me to learn how to do this even better. When I need to download stuff off my vehicle there's always somebody there to help me unload. I really appreciate Fair Salvage and hope to continue doing business with you until I'm too old to do it anymore.

I would just like to say that although I am not a "regular" customer, I always get treated as though I go there on a regular basis. No matter who is greeting me at the scales, and no matter the weather, your staff is always very polite, friendly, and call me by my first name. I also appreciate the fact that they look the load over and tell me how to sort it and re-weigh it to get the maximum amount of money for my load. I'm always impressed by the cleanliness of the indoor office area as well as the yard. This is a first class facility and I wouldn't want to go to any other scrap yard. Keep up the great work.
