Scrap metal has become of your source of earning money because of the rise in value of metal materials through the world. If you have a large amount of scrap metal that you no longer need or have no more use for, you can earn money by selling it too a scrap metal dealer exchange for cash.


Valuable metals

Most metals are valuable, however some are more valuable than others. When selling metal it is worthwhile to separate the different types of metal that you may have gathered. For example copper is the type of metal that has high value. Take for example you are looking to sell a large amount of copper you should sell it on its own rather than mixing it with lesser valued metals. By doing this you increase your chances  of getting more money for your metal.

As mentioned above, copper is a metal that is worth a substantial amount per tonne. If you have recently done renovations to your home, such as installing a new heating system, chances are that you may have an amount of copper leftover that can be sold at a scrap yard or to a scrap dealer. If you are replacing kitchen appliances, they can also be scrapped such as washing machines, fridges, dishwashers and cookers.


Get money for your old Vehicle

You can receive money for an old vehicle if it is no longer road worthy by taking it to a scrap dealer or scrap yard who offer money in exchange for scrap. This is a good way in which you can fund a new car. In countries such as Ireland you can receive an end of life certificates upon scrapping your car at a registered recycling facility. This means you are no longer be liable for your car.

You can also make money on parts from your car such as batteries and catalytic converters. The reason being that the batteries contain lead and catalytic converters contain mercury which are both valuable metals.

Scrap metal yards purchase metal based on the weight of what you bring to the yard. The more you have, the more money you will receive. All scrap yards will accept any amount of metal delivered to the yard.
