Where to get square tubing around Huntsville

Kinda off topic but i am looking for somewhere around Huntsville that sells
1-1/4" to 1-1/2" steel and aluminum square tubing. I am needing aproximately 20 ft. Everywhere i call seems to be more of a distributor than in individual sales.

This isn't neccesarily car related, but i figured someone who has done a roll cage or other metal work could lead me in the right direction. -Thanks!

Interesting request. Does not Home Depot/Lowes sell it in smaller quantities? I'm sure most of the fabricators are buying in bulk aka distributor-level sales.

Did you ask any of the distributors who some of their customers are that you could buy from? That's usually what I do when I run into the same situation.

I have used Service Steel

I needed some C-channel and flat stock and they were
able to cut to size what I needed. Seemed to be
reasonable prices to me.

4208 E Schrimsher Lane Southwest
Huntsville, AL 35805
(256) 883-1190

(It's off of Johnson which is the west end of Airport Rd.)

Thanks for all the help guys, im going to stop into some of those places today.

Samir i wouldnt say there is a high demand, its still a growing sport. However, i can build it for less than half of what they are going for. Its only a frame and a few go kart parts.

When you get your wake winch done, I want to ride it. I've never got to ride on one before.

That sounds about right since most companies have 100% markup to make a profit.

That's a good one! I bet most farm and tractor supply places might have some or point you in the right direction.
