Frequently asked
questions

HOW DO I SELL MY METAL TO YOU?

We welcome all customers, whether you are a business or member of the public. You don’t need an appointment to visit our yards, just call in. Look here to find your local yard, check the opening hours or find contact details and directions, or here to learn more about the selling process. If you have larger volumes of metal and are interested in finding out about our collection service, just give us a call or send your enquiry via our contact form and we’ll call you back.

WHAT PRICES DO YOU PAY?

Prices can change daily, so please get in touch with your local yard for an up-to-date price. You can find their contact details here.

DO I HAVE TO SET UP AN ACCOUNT?

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 states that in order to sell your metal to us you will need to set up an account. Registering for an account is a very quick and straightforward process — see here to find out more about the process and our ID requirements.

WHAT ID DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?

You will need to bring an in-date photo ID and proof of address with you the first time you visit one of our yards to register for your account. See here for a full list of ID we can accept. If you have a valid UK driving licence, this can be used as proof of ID and proof of address (please note the separate requirements below for cashing cheques).

If you are using a passport, you will need to bring a separate proof of address, such as a utility bill or bank statement dated within the last three months. The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 states that in order to pay you for your metal, we also need to check your proof of address every three months. Please remember to bring this with you every three months.
