Weigh your metals

We can accurately measure how much metal has been brought into us. If you have a large amount of ferrous scrap metal, we can weigh the metal whilst still in your vehicle on our weighbridge; we also have smaller weighing scales if you have a smaller load of non-ferrous scrap metal.

We can collect your scrap metal!

One of the main problems our customers face when wanting to scrap their metal is being able to transport it to our yard. Large quantities of metal are extremely heavy making it difficult to move. We have a range of suitable vehicles on site, making it easy to come and collect your scrap metal. 

If you find you have a large quantity of metal and can't get it to us, give us a call and we will be happy to come and collect it from you.

You can also call our metals team with any general enquiries or pricing information. If you are opening an account under a company name, you will be required to complete an account opening form.

Please contact us and we can email this to you prior to your journey - 01245 444888.

We take all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals
