The make, model and age of your car
The size and weight of your car
Your location and distance from us
Whether your car is damaged / has parts missing
The current state of the scrap metal market

All of the above factors influence how much money you will receive when you scrap your car. We can assure you, however, that no matter what condition or state your car is in, we will offer you the best possible price!

The impact of scrap metal grading on prices

The price given to you for your scrap metal will be dependent on its grading. Scrap metal can be classified into a higher or lower grade. Look below for more information about the different grades.
Grade 1
No associated alloys within the material are present in the metal. No corrosion should be associated with the scrap metal and it should be of a particular diameter and size.
Grade 2
Metals are mostly produced from alloy, with the primary metal being the metal you want to scrap. For example, Grade 2 copper is usually 99% pure, whereas Grade 1 copper is 100% pure. Metals must be clean of external contamination to obtain the highest-level grading, resulting in the best possible scrap metal prices.
