Selling Scrap in Free State

Free State is a Province in South Africa and is home to South Africa's judicial capital Bloemfontein. Its economy is varied and is split between mining, tourism and agriculture. These industries all lead to a strong scrap metal industry. Our team has many years combined experience in the scrap metal industry and we will help you get started. Firstly, it is important that understand the complex set of laws that govern how scrap metal is brought and sold within South Africa and the local rules specific to Free State. Something that is the same all over South Africa is that you will need to show ID and a receipt when selling a large amount of scrap metal. We recommend speaking to a local scrap dealer to learn what rule you must follow. They will have a lot of experience within that area.

Finding a scrap yard that best suits your needs is an important part of making money selling scrap. The best thing to do is listen to others in the industry and visit all the ones in your local area. Find out what scrap metal they specialize in and which you get on with the best. Next you need have an understanding of how much each metal is worth. Copper has a much higher price per kilo then steel and you should use that when deciding where to focus your search. No matter what materials you have access to it is important to have an idea of what price it will fetch at the scrap yard. When it comes to finding scrap metal we recommend that you are open minded and take whatever you can get but there are a few ways to get some higher priced materials. Firstly, copper is most commonly found in wiring so make sure to keep an eye out for it. Scrap gold can be acquired by buying old jewelry at below the scrap price and selling it in bulk. However, make sure that you are completely sure it is real. For the most up to date scrap metal prices in Free State search below.
