Trying to find scrap metal prices?
At the end of the day there is money in scrap metal. It does not matter what the market is doing. It does not matter what the stock exchange is doing, again, at the end of the day there is money in scrap metal. Obviously in a good market you may get a better price but even in a bad market there is without a doubt money in scrap metal.
Is it just the market that determines the scrap metal prices?
No, the market is just one factor. Other factors which determine the price of scrap metal are (but not limited to) which country, state, region or town you are in. Generally from what I have seen is that due to the higher demand and lack of supply, country areas may have a higher scrap metal prices. Where the opposite would apply in more urban or built up areas like cities.
If I have more, do I get a better price for scrap metal?
Of course. If you ring a scrap metal yard one of the first questions you will get asked is: How much have you got? If the argument is you don’t get more for the more you have then why would they ask?
Scrap Metal Prices
There is a number of different types of scrap metal. Not all scrap metal yards buy all scrap metal so it does pay to ring around. For example, one scrap yard I went to did not buy ‘Pewter’. Although it is around, it is not commonly found everywhere to warrant every scrap yard buying it in its own light. Turned out they bought it as lead instead.
