Scrap Metal Selling Business


A Scrap Metal Selling Business can be very lucrative, but doesn’t come without it’s own sets of obstacles and formalities.  Whether it’s determining types of scrap metal or selling and recycling needs. We service primarily two areas, the individual and businesses. Each area has its own rules, from fingerprinting to separating metals. If your considering scrapping as a business you should check the local laws and defiantly contact Desert Metal Recycling at 520-741-0408 to check what the prerequisites might be to operate the business even if it’s on a part time basis.

Rules of Selling

No matter which way you go, as an individual looking for an extra boost in your income, or as a business with a full scale business plan and time to work it, it’s important you know the rules.

One of the first rules as a scrapping business is you must get fingerprinted in order to deal in volume in a business. Where there is money to be made, there are criminals to follow, and scrapping is no different. So it is important, that as a united organization, the scrap metal buyers keep records of who is selling their scrap metal to them.

The most important thing to be prepared for as a business or even an individual is the proper equipment. As you will see below euipment for, cuttind
