What goes on at scrap yards? The main thing relevant for the client is the weighing and grading process. We don’t just guess how much you’re owed! The process is precise and scientific. It sees us determine the quality of scrap for sale, as well as the amount to a decimal point. We then consult constantly updating databases which tell us the current prices for particular metals. This allows us to pay you every penny you’re owed, maximising your take away.
So what kinds of metals do scrap yards like our own, situated close by Hutton, most commonly accept? If you have scrap metal for sale of any of the below types, we’d love to hear from you:
There are a few things worth keeping in mind when visiting scrap metal merchants and scrap yards. Firstly, cash payment is now forbidden under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act. You’ll need to be willing to receive payment via electronic transfer or cheque. Secondly, we will need to see valid forms of identification. Both these measures look to crack down on illegal activity, which has in the past plagued the industry due to stolen wire, catalytic converters and similar items being offloaded at unwitting scrap metal merchants.
This is also the reason why it’s important to choose reputable and licenced scrap metal merchants; beware cowboys, and instead use a licenced and well-known industry veteran like Crow Metals, with scrap yards just a short drive from Hutton in Romford and Dagenham.
