Polokwane is the capital of the Limpopo Province in South Africa. It is a hub for commerce and industry in the Gauteng region.

If you are new to buying and selling scrap metal we are here to help you learn the basics of buying and selling scrap metal in South Africa. We have worked with many people over the years, many of whom now make a full time living from the scrap metal industry. Almost all of them forget the most important thing when they start selling scrap metal which is to consider the laws that surround the buying and selling of scrap metal. To combat scrap metal theft laws have been put in place throughout South Africa to make it more difficult to sell. Firstly make sure to take ID as it is often required to sell any significant amount of scrap. Newer laws also require receipts of the material origin before it can be sold. The best to know what you need to bring with you is to take a visit to your local scrap yard and speak to the owner. They will now best all the laws and customs in Polokwane. Helping you know what is required and wasting a trip. The next things to be aware of are where to source scrap metal, how to find the best scrap yard for your needs and the price of scrap metals in Polokwane.

There are many ways of finding scrap metal. Here we will discuss a few but there are many more and it is best to have a range of methods for sourcing material. For those that are new to the scrap metal industry the first thing to do is search your own property for scrap metal that you could get rid of. This is a great way to start thinking about the types of things that could be sold. Also make sure to ask around your local community. Many people cannot take things to the scrap yard themselves and will be happy for you to take it for free. After this I recommend going after scrap metal that has the highest price so scrap copper and scrap gold. Scrap copper is great as it is easy to find in older wiring. Gold is more difficult, a great method is to try to by old jewelry for less than the scrap value. When doing this make sure that you are sure the gold is real. From experience I can tell you there is nothing worse than buying fake gold.

When you have some scrap metal that you want to sell you need to choose a scrap yard. Find the best scrap yard for you is something that takes time. The best thing to do is to visit as many as you can in your local area. Each should give similar prices for you scrap but some will be more knowledgeable in some areas then other. Try to talk to the staff and build friendships this will help you get insider local knowledge that can be hugely beneficial.
