At Sydenham Scrap Metals, we cater for a wide and diverse client base of private customers, tradespeople, small businesses and organisations in the Bromley area. In recent years, we’ve met more people than ever who want to make extra money from their local scrap metal merchants – especially in the domestic sector. Imagine ridding your home of some of the unwanted clutter, and making a little bit of extra cash to spend into the bargain!
Take a little time to look around and you’ll find your Bromley home has metal everywhere. The pots and pans you cook with, the furniture you sit on, the computer you work on and even the tools you use for gardening have a value to scrap metal merchants. Why sit on personal belongings you never use when you could be making money from them?
Each ferrous or non-ferrous material attracts a different price from scrap metal merchants. Aluminium, one of the earth’s more abundant metals, is also one of the most used. Because of its abundancy, there’s a great chance of finding old aluminium items around properties in the Bromley area that you can bring to our yard on Burnham Way in Sydenham. Aluminium scrap generally pays more than iron or lead, but not as much as brass or copper.
Indeed, copper is usually the best-paying type of scrap with the exception of precious metals such as gold and platinum. Grade 1 copper attracts the best rates but customers and clients in the Bromley area can also expect a tasty return on consignments of copper wire.
Our scrap metal merchants even process quantities of cable containing copper.
Keep in mind the metal is naturally heavy by weight so it doesn’t take long to accumulate a few kilograms of scrap from around the home. With a little research, you can build up a quick understanding of our sector, the different types of scrap we deal with, the current market rates for metals and, most importantly, how to deal with scrap metal merchants.
Once you have a consignment of scrap metal ready, bring it along to our yard in Sydenham. This is the best way for customers, and for our company, to deal with smaller quantities of metal. If you have a larger consignment of scrap, perhaps if you run a business, please call us when you’re ready and we’ll come out to collect it. If you plan to sell scrap metal to us regularly, we’ll even leave roll-on/roll-off containers onsite for storage and separation.
And, because we operate as a forward-thinking company of scrap metal merchants, we have calibrated digital facilities at our yard which display the total weight of your loaded material. Sydenham Scrap Metals has a series of flexible payment options available to customers.
Please be aware that changes to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act in 2013 prohibit all scrap metal merchants from paying in cash. This is to stop instances of illegal activity such as metal theft.
If you own a property in Bromley and plan on a renovation or refurbishment project, ask builders and plumbers to leave metal waste in a safe area. Most tradesmen understand the value of scrap metal and remove it from site as projects progress. Ultimately, any metal removed from a home during a renovation or a refurbishment still belongs to you, so be the one who cashes in on its worth by coming down to our scrap metal merchants for valuation.
