Scrap metal collection

Tuesday 16 June 2020

Collecting Scrap Appliances & Metal Items

Please note most Scrap Household Metal Items are Chargeable due to low metal value and other reasons stated below.      

Sadly the days of having Free Scrap Metal Collections of Washing Machines etc are long gone, not just the large drop in the price of the metal has caused this but also other factors such as more legislation and a spike in the price of scrap metal collectors van insurance in fact all insurance in this industry is very costly, If you work in the scrap metal recycling industry motor insurance is double compared to most other industries, also to stay legal we have to have scrap metal licenses they also come at a cost.

Carrying van loads of scrap metal causes a lot of wear and tear on a vehicle this leads to many garage repair bills, also when unloading our vehicles at very large scrap yards there usually sharp objects like nails on the ground and getting punctures and having to replace tyres is also an ongoing and expensive cost.  

Picking up the items listed is non viable to us financially but also non viable for our health, as every time a heavy item is picked up there is always a possible chance of an injury, It really makes no sense to us risking a back injury picking up a heavy washing machine for free that only has a value of around £2, when we can do other work and be able to at least earn the minimum wage, doing those items for free would definitely not allow us to earn the minimum wage far from it.   

Hope this gives you a better understanding why we have to charge.

Prices start at £20 per Collection

You can leave a voice message or text message on 07802780631 if you prefer landline you can leave a voice message on 02082008656

We may still only charge the minimum for multiple metal items, extra charges are based on postcode for example Central London is more expensive due to congestion charge.

Other costs are priced into the job for example how far do the metal items need to be carried and parking availability.   

The photo below is an example of various metals although there are quite a few items we would still to have charge to take them away, if we can park close by then the charge will usually be the same as taking a single item like a scrap washing machine.  

We do also take other non metal waste items however those non metal waste items would be charged separately as they have to be recycled in a different way and taken to a different waste transfer station.

We will sometimes ask for upfront partial booking payment that will be deducted from the final price of the collection this could be anything between £10 - £30 depending on the distance we have to travel to collect your metals, If you have cancel the booking then the upfront payment is not refundable however if it was our fault and we could not honour the collection ( for example our vehicle breaking down)  then the payment would be refunded.

We have to put this in place due to a number of bookings we in the past where metal has been taken before we have arrived, having time and fuel wasted can make our job very miserable and we much prefer to be happy it makes us even better at what we do when we are happy.

We would recommend making the booking payment a day in advance to avoid losing it if your metal is collected by other means.

Below is a payment button where you can send over the booking fee.

W2          Bayswater, Paddington

W14        West Kensington

Although we collect from all of these
West London postcodes,
there are sometimes parking problems
as well as a lot of traffic 
congestion in some of these areas,
for this reason we may 
not be able to do small pick ups
of your non ferrous metals
for example under 100 kg especially
If the markets are down as that causes
metal prices to drop,
However you are always welcome 
to take photos of you metal and 
send them to our
Whatsapp 07802780631.

We usually recommend having 
collections from the more
challenging postcodes outside office
hours, as parking becomes more 
accessible and road congestion
has usually eased off by then.

Lastly scrap metals bought and collected 
at postcodes within the 
Congestion / ULEZ charging zones 
maybe at slightly reduced rate to allow us
to cover the costs.
