Making it easy for you to sell your scrap metal
We pay competitive rates for all types of scrap metal, based on the type of metal, its current market price and the weight of the scrap load when it arrives at our depot. In order to ensure that you get the correct price for your scrap, we weigh your vehicle with the scrap loaded upon entry to the depot. Your scrap is then tipped and we re-weigh your vehicle unladen before exiting the depot. The difference between the two weights allows us to calculate the actual market value of your scrap.
At CJ Metals we are governed by strict legislation which means we cannot and will not pay cash for scrap vehicles. CJ Metals have always adhered to the very highest ethical standards and we welcomed the introduction of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act in 2013, because it protects our industry which in turn protects you. Any scrap dealer who offers to pay cash for your vehicle is breaking the law and should be avoided at all costs.
Because of this legislation, there are two ways in which we can pay you. These are; a non-transferrable cheque on collection, or a same-day electronic payment directly into your bank account.
Simply tell us which payment method suits you best and we’ll do the rest. By dealing with CJ Metals, you can be assured that we will dispose of your vehicle in a responsible manner and we will adhere to all current legislation governing our industry as an absolute minimum.
