Scrap Metal Merchants in Brentwood | Your Questions Answered

Crow Metals have traded as scrap metal merchants for over 70 years. During this time, we’ve seen some big changes in how scrap is processed. In recent years, we’ve moved to one of the biggest purpose-built scrap yards in the Brentwood area but one thing that has always remained the same is our friendly yet professional approach to customer service.

We offer free advice on every aspect of our role as leading scrap metal merchants, helping our customers in every possible way by paying the best prices for scrap and finding a suitable home for their materials, which come to us through door trade and merchant services.

On this page, we answer questions about our services for customers in the Brentwood area. If you have your own queries about scrap metal, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Is there a limit to how little or how much scrap metal you can collect?

We collect and receive all ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal types in any volume, no matter what the size of your consignment. Crow Metals accepts copper from small plumbing projects but just as happily handles scrap metal from major renovations, factory clearances and demolition projects in or around the Brentwood area.

Our scrap metal merchants offer fair and competitive rates on all quantities. Call us now to arrange a collection or feel free to use our popular door trade service.

I live in Brentwood and would like to scrap a car. Can you help with this?

We make the process of handling scrap cars as simple as possible. All you need to do is give us a time and a place that’s convenient for us to meet you and we’ll collect your end-of-life vehicle. Scrap yards like our own always use modern depollution procedures for fuel and fluids, and dispose of non-recyclable parts in an ethical manner. Crow Metals collects scrap cars from any location in Brentwood, East London and Essex.

If you would prefer to bring your vehicle down to us directly, that’s fine. We accept runners and non-runners, with or with an MOT. We even complete the DVLA paperwork for you!

Are there any legal requirements I have to meet to sell scrap metal?

All scrap yards, by law, require customers to be aged 18 years or older and capable of presenting valid photographic ID such as a driving licence or passport. Crow Metals also requires a current email address and a telephone number. On occasion, we may ask for further documentation from you before we can accept your consignment of scrap.

For those who want a payment directly into an account, our scrap metal merchants request the necessary bank details from customers in Brentwood and the surrounding areas.

How much do you pay for scrap metal?

Prices fluctuate from day to day on different types of scrap metal so we monitor the market situation constantly to make sure you never miss out on the best rates. Some scrap yards offer the same price for materials every day, often at lower rates that rarely benefit their customers. We are ethical scrap metal merchants for the Brentwood area and we firmly believe our customers deserve a fair, transparent and honest service at all times.

We’ll pay you fairly for scrap no matter how much or how little you bring in to us. Crow Metals pays by BACS, by cheque or by a pre-paid debit card from Bread.
