We Buy Ferrous Metals & Non-Ferrous Metals

 Check Out Our Buying List Here

As a leader in the scrap metal industry, we buy ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals in any condition. And although the weight price per tonne changes by the day, we are guaranteed to pay the very best prices. Due to changes in legislation, you cannot now buy scrap metal with cash, however, we will pay you by cheque, on the day.

There are many companies that will only buy either one or the other, ferrous or non-ferrous, however we will buy all your metal. We are the North West’s leading buyer of copper, alloy and iron, and if you have a lot of the stuff, we’ll even come to pick it up for free.

The Difference between Ferrous Metals and Non-Ferrous Metals

Ferrous:- Ferrous metals are those which contain iron. They are both magnetic and corrosive,
due to the high level or carbon and it is these metals, which we as a scrap car company tend
to deal the most in. Ferrous metals make up the most recycled metals in the world.
Ferrous metals that we buy:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Wrought Iron
  • Cast Iron

Non-Ferrous:- Non-Ferrous metals do not contain iron and are more resistant to any corrosion or rusting. They are also usually lighter than ferrous metals, but just as strong. Not only are
non-ferrous used for aircraft they are also used in  small electrical appliances as they are much
more pliable.
Non-Ferrous metals that we buy:
non-ferrous metals

  • Copper & Copper Wiring
  • Aluminium
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Electrical Cable

Ferrous metals are usually easier to come by as there is a constant process of recycling. However, non-ferrous metals, excluding aluminium are much harder to come by, as it takes much longer for them to be recycled.
