Default Outsourcing Plasma Parts & Mack Steel Warehouse, Watertown SD

Has anyone used Mack Steel Warehouse in Watertown South Dakota for plasma or laser cut steel sheet parts?

I have purchased full lengths of tube, angle and channel from them.

I have an upcoming project where I'm going to be having a decent amount parts that need to be plasma or laser cut.

Is there a rough rule of thumb for estimating the cost for plasma cutting vs laser cutting using the overall sheet size? I'd prefer to have a rough idea of the overall cost before submitting a bunch of items for quote, and then it seems to high so I redesign to bring the price down.

I plan to use plasma cut for lower tolerance parts, and laser cut for the high tolerance parts.
I will be supplying DXF files for the parts.
