Payment Process

A change in the law has meant that since the 3rd of December 2012 it is now illegal to be paid in cash for scrap metal.

Below is a guide to the process of selling us your scrap metal and how we will pay you for it:

When you arrive on site all customers MUST report to the weighbridge office. This is important because, before we can accept your scrap metal, we must check that you have valid photo ID and means by which we can pay you.

All Ad-Hoc customers are required to let us have their bank sort code and account number details for electronic payment to be paid.


​Customers who are VAT registered can set up an account very easily. We require the trading name, bank details and VAT number.  We then issue a 'self-bill' invoice and again make electronic payment.

​Valid forms of photo ID include:
- Valid photocard driving licence
- Valid passport - which must be accompanied by proof of address (such as bank statement or utility bill) that is no more than 3 months old
