Many individuals and tow companies bring their junk cars to Taylor's. We simply weigh the vehicle and pay current market value per pound.
For example if your car weighs 3500 lbs and current market value is 10 cents per pound you would receive $350.00. You may bring the vehicle as is. We do not require removal of tires or gas tanks. Our process is fast and easy, and you should be in and out in minutes.
At Taylor's Junkyard we have fine tuned the junk car selling process. If someone says "I want to junk my car", we want to be able to provide not only top dollar for junk cars, but a fast easy route to sell the junk car and have a good experience doing so. Our staff is equipped to answer just about any question about junk car pricing, junk car pickup, and car crushing in general. We are a full service scrap yard that does any type of scrap metal recycling, but our primary focus is buying junk cars. This expertise enables us to make accurate quotes for junk cars over the phone with just a small amount of information about your scrap car. If you want to price your junk car it only takes a few minutes of your time. Also, many customers bring in their scrap vehicles and weigh them on our truck scales. If you prefer to bring in your junker we pay by the pound at current market value steel price. We have many customers who pull in scrap vehicles on trailers and we pull the vehicle off for them with our crane. Our goal is to make selling a junk car profitable and easy for you.
Taylor's is a favorite junk car selling location of many tow companies in the North Metro Atlanta area for several reasons. We try to be easy to deal with and we try to have the best prices. We DO NOT require tire or gas tank removal from the vehicle and we try to make the paperwork fast and easy. Also, we competetively buy the catalytic converters and aluminum wheels seperately if they have been removed; this makes us a one stop shop for selling your scrap associated with the junk cars. We set dealer prices for tow companies and other businesses according to the volume that they are able to produce. If you are a tow company, feel free to call or give us a try. We would love to have your business.
WHAT DO I NEED TO SELL SCRAP METAL AT TAYLOR’S JUNKYARD?
Taylor’s Junkyard stays in compliance with all scrap laws regulated by our government. Currently, what you need as a seller of scrap metal is a valid ID. We have means to take care of the rest of the scrap laws on our end. In order to recycle your steel, copper, aluminum, or whatever you may have, you need to first show valid ID. Our friendly staff will direct you upon arrival to the correct procedure.
HOW DO I SELL MY SCRAP METAL?
When you arrive at Taylor’s Junkyard, you will want to come to the office and tell us what type of metal you have. If you do not know exactly what type or types of scrap metal you have, we can look at your load and determine that very quickly. If you have nonferrous scrap metal such as bare copper, insulated copper, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, etc. we will direct you to our small scale where the material will be weighed. From there you will be given a weight ticket to take back to the office where you will receive payment. If you have steel scrap you will weigh on our truck scale beside the office and return back to the office for payment after weighing out empty. Steel scrap may include shred, cars, short steel, cast iron, and other various types of ferrous metal.
HOW DO I FIND OUT THE CURRENT PRICE OF SCRAP METAL?
The best way to find out the current price of scrap metal is to call our yard at 678-230-7976. We will be able to give you a quick price quote on all of the common metals on our price sheet. Sometimes odd type scrap metals such as zinc, manganese, or metal turnings may require us to check with our buyers and call you back. Oftentimes, nonferrous metals (copper, stainless steel, aluminum, cans, brass, etc.) can change daily or weekly while ferrous metals (steel, cast iron, etc.) usually change monthly. Remember to call between our operating hours of 7 am and 5 pm when we have staff manning the phones.
HOW CAN I TELL WHAT TYPE OF SCRAP METAL I HAVE?
There is no fool proof way to describe every scrap metal item conclusively. However, there are several broad categories that most metals fit into. The easiest way to determine basic metal types is with a magnet.
Ferrous metals are those primarily consisting of iron. Such metals make up most of what we see at our scrap yards. Ferrous metals are magnetic. We classify and buy ferrous metal in four major groups; short iron (clean metal cut less than 4 feet in length that is at least 1/8”thick), cars (normal sized automobiles), shred (appliances, light iron, tin, unprepared metals, etc.), and heavy unprepared (dozers, large equipment, oversized structural, etc).
Nonferrous metals are those metals that are not composed primarily of iron and are not magnetic. These items are bought in more refined categories, but basically include copper, scrap aluminum, irony aluminum, brass, lead, stainless, and aluminum cans. Some assistance may be required in telling the exact type and classification of nonferrous metal. We will be happy to give you our opinion over the phone, or you may bring it to us for exact determination.
Other items that do not fall entirely into the ferrous or nonferrous groups are often priced reflecting both groups. For instance, an electric motor is copper and steel and is therefore priced between the two. Car batteries and catalytic converters are other such examples.
I NEED A ROLLOFF FOR SCRAP METAL OR NEED MY SCRAP METAL PICKED UP
Taylor’s Junkyard has several roll off trucks to service both small and large business accounts. We also pick up scrap metal in roll off containers from individuals who have a large amount of scrap material. We pick-up cars with tow trucks. We do not pick up small amounts of scrap metal; our best suggestion is to have a friend with a pickup truck bring us the metal.
MY BUSINESS HAS SCRAP METAL TO SELL
We buy scrap from many businesses at Taylor’s Junkyard. If you have a business and would like pricing on your scrap metal, give us a call and speak directly with one of the owners (Scott or Lloyd Taylor). We do preferred pricing depending on quantity and market situations. Also, if we have a copy of your business license on file, we can pay you cash.
NEW SCRAP METAL RECYCLING LAWS
A few basic changes have resulted from the new scrap metal recycling laws that took effect on July 1st 2012. The two changes most relevant to the typical scrap metal seller are that we cannot pay cash to individuals without a business license and that we cannot buy coils from AC units. We pay with checks which can be cashed at a number of places within 3 miles of our scrap yard. A number of other requirements exist that our buying system collects and records to keep us in compliance with the new laws.
