I rent a tank of argon to go with my tig welder.
Every year I pay the rental plus $10 for the
Hazardous Material Fee. I complained once, and got pushed to a higher
level, and the the agent while trying to justify the charge said, we
have about a million of these bottles out, I cut him off and said,
"so you collect $10,000,000 a year in Hazardous Material Fees."
He started back pedaling, all my complaining got me know where.
Who get the Hazardous Material Fee?
Is it a government mandated fee, is it split?
It's Airgas Co.
I bought some gloves and they tried to charge me a HazMat fee. When I
complained they took it off the bill. When it happened, the company was
LinWeld. They were bought out by Matheson. I've only bought CO2 from
them since and they did charge me a HazMat fee each time.
