Scrap Metal

Vehicle to Transport Metal

Internet or Phone Book


Step 1

Start out by going on the internet or in a phone book to find places that will give you cash for scrap metal. There are many different places all over that will allow you to turn in scrap metal for cash. Once you find a few places that will allow you to turn in scrap metal for cash, call them. Ask about how much their current rates are on scrap metal and compare them with other scrap metal places. Find out which one of these places will give you the most money for your scrap metal and then you will be ready to start gathering your scrap metal to sell for cash.


Step 2

Gather all of your scrap metal that you want to sell for cash. When you cash in on your scrap metal, you will get paid based on the weight of the metal and what the current scrap metal prices are. Try to gather as much scrap metal as possible so that you can make as much money as possible cashing in on your scrap metal. Once you have gathered all of the scrap metal that you would like to turn in for cash, load it onto a vehicle. If you do not have a vehicle large enough for the scrap metal that you would like to cash in on then you will either have to rent one or borrow one from a friend or family member. Once you have loaded all of the scrap metal into your vehicle, you will be ready to turn in your scrap metal for cash.

Step 3

Get directions to the location that you have chosen to turn in your scrap metal for cash. Get inside your vehicle and drive to that location. Depending on the size of your load, you may need to drive onto a large scale with your vehicle before and after you unload your scrap metal. If you have a small load of scrap metal to turn in for cash then you may just need to bring it inside to a smaller scale. After they have weighed your scrap metal, you will be given a receipt to take up to the main counter. Bring the receipt to the counter and the person working there will give you cash for your scrap metal.
