    We strive to make your visit to our site safe and pleasant. There is plenty of space, vans, trucks and trailers are all welcome and our team have the right equipment and experience to help you unload large amounts of scrap metal.

    How we pay you

    When you arrive, you will need to bring ID to our office to ensure payment can be made.

    The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 means that by law, we cannot pay cash in return for scrap metal.  However, we can make cashless payments for your scrap metal in the form of a cheque or Visa Refund. 

    One important thing is that to get your payment you must bring ID to our office at the site when you bring your scrap metal. We cannot make any exceptions, so please don’t ask.

    Here is what you need.

    • A valid (in date) photo ID. This can be a drivers licence or a shotgun or firearms licence that matches your payment details.


    If you cannot provide either of these you will need to bring the following two items of ID.

    –  A current passport 

    AND one of the following proof of address documents, less than three months old

    • A statement from your bank or building society
    • A statement from your debit or credit card
    • A Council Tax demand letter or statement
    • A utility bill (this does NOT include mobile phone bills)

    Once you have your payment details ready, we will weigh your metal on our fully calibrated weighbridges, arrange a payment method and produce a “Police Record Note” receipt listing the materials, weights, price per unit and value.
