There are four ways to work with us to get your metal quickly and easily.
 
Delivery
We deliver daily throughout Southern California, Arizona and northern Mexico via brokers (Nogales and Tijuana.) If you place your call Monday through Friday we most often times can deliver a processed order the next day to your shop on or before noon. If the order requires extensive cutting we might have to push delivery back a day, but we always try to work within your needs and requirements. We have forty trucks serving these areas daily and have a very high success rate at meeting our delivery promise times – averaging over 95% companywide.
 
Will Call
You really won’t find any other metal supplier that offers the breadth of what IMS does and you won’t find one that offers a Will-Call window open six days a week. Any time we are open you can call in your order and make arrangements to pick it up at any of our six locations that same day. This includes cut orders too. Our sales reps will let you know how long it will take to pull and package your order and give you a promise time. If you want, we can also send you a text when your order is ready for pick up.
 
Store
We have six stores – four in Southern California and two in Arizona. They are all open six days a week and welcome all customers whether you are picking up steel sheet for your job site or needing corrugated roofing for the new chicken shed. Our stores stock thousands of items, many that will find on this website. The stores offer more than just the steel and aluminum you might see on our trucks, we also offer precut sizes so you can pick up a small round bar of aluminum or copper. Perhaps you need wrought iron pickets or metal cleaners. We have been called a lot of wonderful names over the years but most often we are referred to as the One Stop Metal Shop and if you stop by any of our six locations you will know immediately why customers have said this for more than sixty years.
 
Online
Well, you know we have a website because here you are! We are attempting to get all our products online and add ecommerce where we can. We’ve tried to make ordering easy and we can ship anywhere in the U.S. If you have any questions please contact us via email and we promise to get back to you quickly.
 
Shipping
We sell metal and metal can be really heavy. That’s why we have many options when it comes to shipping your material. If you can’t pick it up in Will-Call or you live outside our delivery areas then we can use the US Post Office, UPS and common carrier to get the metal safely and efficiently to you.
