    Scrap Car Prices UK

    How are scrap car prices calculated?
    If you are looking to sell your scrap metal, price is going to be a big factor in your decision making. But how can you be sure that you are getting that honest rate?

    Class of metal
    One of the big deciders in the price of your scrap metal is actually the type of material that you are trading in. To the average person, metal may just seem like metal – but did you know that there are actually lots of different classifications for metals? All of which determine its end price at the trading point.

    If your vehicle has come to the end of the road and is ready to be recycled, give Reclamet your local car breakers yard a call today on 01843 823554 / 01843 823224 or email: enquiries@reclamet.co.uk for a top price car quote.

      Non-ferrous/ferrous metals

      The most common two types of metals are ferrous and non-ferrous, but these can be further sorted through their properties such as their density and tensile strength. Typically, copper and brass goods carry the most value in the scrap metal trade. Alloys such as gold and silver are often worth the most – but are not so commonly recycled.

      The current market value

      Another big determiner of price is the current market value of the material.

      At Reclamet, our competitive prices are designed to match and beat the industry rates. It is worth noting that these prices can fluctuate on a daily basis. Contact us today for the most recent up to date metal prices. 

      Quality of the metal

      It goes without saying, but it is also important for your scrap metal to be of good quality.

      Metals can usually still be recycled even if they are of poor quality, but this can decrease their value as there will be a number of additional steps that need to be taken in order to standardise the material.

      Car scrap yard location

      Lastly, the location of a scrap metal yard may play a part in how the final price is calculated.

      If your vehicle has come to the end of its life and is ready to be recycled, give Reclamet a call today on 01843 823554 / 01843 823224 or email: enquiries@reclamet.co.uk
