Imagine the things they can do with that scrap metals. So I’ll guide you to your way of selling all the scrap metals in your home to clean your entire garage while earning at the same time!
Using the magnet for metals
There is a difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metal. Well, that’s technically obvious. But what I mean is that there’s a difference between the cash that you can make out of them. Granted, both of them can be recycled. But scrap or car wreckers value them differently. That’s why you should use a metal to determine if which is which. If it sticks, you have yourself a ferrous metal that is worth less. And non-ferrous metal is worth more and it doesn’t stick to the magnet.
Where to find scrap metals
Now where can you find scrap metals? Well, it’s really all over the place. You might have even thrown a lot of them in the past so… you just wasted a lot of cash. But don’t bring that guilt upon yourself, it’s only natural to appreciate things right after you lose them.
Each of the metal’s potential cash
There are two different types of metal and that is ferrous and non-ferrous which I mentioned earlier. But what you’ll be seeing here is the comparison between non-ferrous metals. Just because… they are worth more cash. Who are we kidding, right?So basically, if you’re looking to get more cash for scrap metal from Adelaide, you need to watch out for these metals. Copper is the all-time favorite of scrappers so spend some time looking for this metal. It can be found as pipes or gutters in the roof. Then there is the brass metal which is cheaper than the copper because every other metal is cheaper than copper. It can be found in keys, handles, and several other hardware. Then the aluminum and stainless steel are cheaper than brass but still worth it. Not to mention that steel is very common.
Where to head to after scrapping metals
You got the metals, then what should you do? The first thing you got to do after collecting is go to the local scrap yard or even car wrecking yards. But one way to make it easier for you and the scrap yard is by calling ahead to know that you’re coming so they can prepare for you.
