20 Sep Choosing the Right Company to Buy Your Scrap Metal
Scrap metal is the junk you can turn to gold. With professional scrap metal services in Adelaide and elsewhere around Australia, you can make money and help the environment by recycling steel, aluminium, copper, and more. Whether you’re getting rid of white goods or an old computer, don’t miss out on the chance to recycle your scrap metal. But make sure you choose the right company! We’ve created this guide to help you get great services and competitive prices when you sell your scrap metal.
Make sure the scrap metal buyer you choose can offer you good prices. Ask about their scrap steel prices, scrap copper prices, scrap cast iron prices, the price of their scrap aluminium, and so on. You need to know that you’ll be getting a good enough return to make it worth your while – especially if you’re hiring transport trucks or investing time into searching for scrap.
Not Too Picky
Not all scrap yards have the capability to process every type of scrap metal. Unless you want to walk away with half your haul unsold, it’s important to choose a company who can take care of the lot. Ideally, the company you choose should be able to buy and recycle:
- PVC Copper
- Stainless Steel
- Cast Iron
- Coated Wire
- Car Batteries from Trucks, Forklifts and Cars
It’s also helpful if you can bring in some larger items as they are and have them deconstructed and processed for you. A scrap metal company who can handle fridges, washing machines, dishwashers, and dryers will make your life a lot easier if you need to scrap white goods.
It’s neither safe nor convenient to have scrap metal piling up on a worksite or in your yard during renovations. You might have a ute you can pile it in, but that has size limitations and also means the ute tray is occupied until you can offload the scrap. The solution here is collection bins. Some companies will deliver the bin straight to you and then pick it up when your job is finished. This means you’ll have a safe, secure place to put scrap metal while you or your team is working.
Trucks for Bigger Jobs
If you know your job is going to be bigger, it’s good to be able to hire a truck directly from your scrap metal company. Because it’s with the same company, you’ll get better rates due to the combined business. The trucks will also be well fitted-out for the work at hand. Look for a company with a range of trucks on offer, such as flatbed trucks, tilt tray trucks, and trucks with cranes for very heavy items.
