Located at our own yard on Burnham Way, and covering all locations in South East London, Sydenham Scrap Metals is a reputable company of scrap metal dealers with membership to the BMRA. Understandably, much of our work centres on the collection of ferrous and non-ferrous materials but we also provide a home for end-of-life vehicles. If you have a non-runner, an MOT failure or an accident-damaged car, we’ll help you cash in on its value.
Subject to the availability of a driver and vehicle, we make prompt scrap car collections in Sydenham and the neighbouring Anerley, Bromley, Catford, Dulwich, East Dulwich, Forest Hill and Norwood areas. If the vehicle still runs and is legal to drive, our scrap metal merchants also welcome deliveries to our yard, which has its own reclamation facilities.
The key objective of Sydenham Scrap Metals is a zero-to-landfill service where the metal derived from scrap cars goes back into the secondary production system, or working parts get salvaged, inspected, priced and sold at a substantial discount to local motorists.
We currently recycle more than 90% of the scrap metal received at our yard.
One of the most important aspects of accepting scrap cars is treatment. Fuel, oil, fluid and other potential contaminants have an adverse effect on the environment if we don’t deal with them properly. Our treatment facility allows for the safe drainage and storage of fluids, and leaves our personnel free to break down the rest of the vehicle with no contamination risks. This benefits the customer, our own personnel, local wildlife and the local ecosystem.
We have different payment options for scrap cars which include:
After taking your call, Sydenham Scrap Metals arranges a convenient time for collecting your end-of-life vehicle. We arrive at your home or workplace in a suitable vehicle and load your scrap car onto a bed for safe transport back to our yard. While we’re with you, our friendly personnel help in completing your part of the required DVLA paperwork. We fill in our section after returning to our yard and dispatch the finished forms to offices in Swansea.
If you leave a non-runner, an MOT failure or an end-of-life vehicle at the roadside without tax or insurance, you face the risk of paying fixed penalties. It makes more sense to receive a little money back for a non-serviceable car than it does to take unnecessary chances.
Our scrap metal merchants always pay you fairly for end-of-life vehicles and make the entire process simple from start to finish. If you need us to collect from Anerley, Bromley, Catford, Dulwich, East Dulwich, Forest Hill, Norwood or any other location close to our yard on Burnham Way in Sydenham, please contact us on our usual number of 020 8778 9775.
