London, ON Scrap Metal Prices

Selling Scrap in London

If you are based in London (Southwest Ontario), then I'm sure you will have found it difficult to determine what scrap metal prices are in the city. The main reason for this is because whenever you do a search on Google, the search results are often based upon the prices in the other London. Canada's London has a population of almost 500 thousand and so it is one of the biggest cities in the province of Ontario. It is situated north of Lake Erie and is very close to the border with the United States. Scrap metal is therefore frequently traded across the border and so prices are very temperamental. You can see them change by as much as 20% from one scrap yard to another.

Additionally, it is also quite difficult for the amateur trader to make any money whatsoever due to the complicated rules in place which restrict their trade. It is worth spending a lot of time researching London's harsh scrap metal trading laws before even gathering any metal together. Obviously, the standard rules apply here, you will need some form of identification, you will need to provide the dealer with a detailed outline of where you received this metal from and why you are attempting to sell it. For example, are you a hobby trader, are you simply recycling a sizeable piece of metal from your home, or is this excess waste from your business?

There are ultimately many reasons for why you could be recycling and selling scrap metal, so this is unlikely to be a stumbling block for your sale. One thing it is fair to say regarding the sale of metal in London Ontario is that selling cars is notoriously troublesome and so should only be considered if you're expecting to get a decent fee for your scrapped car.
