Competition is Good For The Customer

Unless They Fool You…

Thank you for considering General Steel for your building needs. As the pioneer in the steel building industry and an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau, General Steel is the name you know and can trust. We do everything we can to guide and inform our customers as they determine who will provide their steel building.

“LOOK OUT”for the wolf in sheep’s clothing! The internet is home to many companies offering a deal which is too good to be true. These companies lure unsuspecting people with a low price upfront, often below material cost, only to increase the original price after the sale with invented fees and charges. One commonly used ploy is to tell you that shipping is included to secure your purchase and then when it comes time to deliver your building they inform you of a $4,500 “fuel surcharge” you must pay immediately or you will not receive your building. This is only one example of the many traps in an arsenal of deception.

Don’t let this happen to you!

Before you purchase ask, “Have I ever heard of this company or did I just happen to come across this website”? Most of these “internet companies” that claim to be large manufacturers are nothing more than a website and a couple of people with phones.

Your project is too important to gamble on the internet! You can rest assured that no one beats the General on price and quality. General Steel offers something that no website can: “Peace of Mind” and tens of thousands of successfully completed projects.

Competition What They May Say to You
“The Shipping is Included”One common ploy used by other steel building companies is to tell you that shipping is included to secure your purchase and then when it comes time to deliver your building they inform you of a $4,500 “fuel surcharge” you must pay immediately or you will not receive your buildings.
“We Have a Cancelled Building”Many internet steel companies will tell you that they just happen to have a “canceled” building available for you to order at a discounted price but you must order now. This “canceled” building is actually a building ordered and billed to you at full price.
“You Can Trust Our Warranty”In order to compete with the 50 year warranty General Steel provides, some steel companies will offer a warranty when no warranties in fact exist and worse the company does not have the financial ability to ensure the warranty will be honored.
“We are the Manufacturer”Many steel companies will claim that they are the building manufacturer. Companies will use this false claim to threaten you with bogus price increases up to and including sending you fake price increase letters which is illegal.
