Perth Scrap Metal Prices - Australia

Selling Scrap in Perth

Perth is the 4th biggest city in Australia in terms of population and the capital and biggest city of the state of Western Australia. It has a population of around 1.9 million people. This city always has a huge demand for construction materials and scrap metal.

Perth is the only densely populated area in the state and therefore it keeps bringing new people into it's city. This is simply the place to be for people who are looking to get a job or do business. As of late it's economy is changing to the services industry although the resources industry is still huge. It's also relevant to know that the state thrives on mining and natural resources. So metal trading is big and scrap metal in the want.

A few key things to know before you head off to the scrap yard is that are certain laws in Western Australia that scrap yards need to follow. Lately they're becoming more strict, because there's been a lot of copper theft in the past. So before you head out to a scrap yard it makes sense to call ahead and see what they need as it may vary from place to place. Bringing ID is always needed when you bring metal to sell.

Lastly we investigated the scrap yards in Perth. Beware that not all scrap yards are equally reliable in this region and if you have time to ask around or check reviews then do so.

Some good options for car wreckers in Perth are MRZ Car Wreckers Perth and Auto Wreckers Perth. If you're planning on going to a different car wrecker then FOR SURE check the reviews first. Reliable scrap yards with decent to good customer service are King Scrap Metals Recyclers Perth and C.D. Dodd Scrap Metal Recyclers.

There are also a few really good "cash for gold" places such as the Perth Mint (a bit of a tourist trap though) and the Cash and Gold Exchange. They have great reviews and the prices seem fair.
