Glasgow Scrap Metal Prices

Glasgow, the second most populated city in Scotland, and one of the most populated cities in the whole United Kingdom, is a great city to be based in if you are wanting to buy or sell scrap metal. Glasgow’s scrap metal prices are continually fluctuating, but they have historically always been some of the highest in the whole country. You can easily find scrap dealers close to the city, however the best boroughs to look for them in include; Finneston, Kinning Park, Laurieston, Gorbals, Bridgeton, Hillhead, Partick and Govan. If you look a little further out from the city around Celtic Park, Seven Lochs Wetland Park or near the Ibrox Stadium, you will see that there is an abundance of scrap yards in Glasgow. The scrap yards with the highest price per kilo were Dalton Metals, EMR Glasgow and BM Metals Ltd. You shouldn’t solely base your decision on where to sell scrap metal on price, as customer service cannot be underrated, particularly when dealing with scrap metal. The scrap yards which provide the highest prices are typically used to dealing in tonnes of materials and so may not be best suited to an amateur looking to shift a small amount of scrap. If this is you, you may want to call up each of the scrap yards one at a time and see if they are willing to help you with your sale. If not, then you can just continue trying until you find a retailer willing to give you a price for your scrap in Glasgow.
