How do I scrap Catalytic Converters?

Catalytic converters in the scrap industry are a HOT commodity, with the prices of palladium, rhodium and platinum (the three precious metals found inside catalytic converters) reaching an all-time high recently, catalytic converter recycling has become a big part of the scrap metal industry over the last few years. There are many scrap yards that purchase scrap catalytic converters across Kent, but here at Reclamet we can assure you of top prices paid for all scrap catalytic converters.

How can I find the best catalytic converter buyer for scrap? 

With so much lack of knowledge across scrap yards, there are many independent buyers like auto shops and garages that will start to buy catalytic converters. While this may seem like a quick and easy option, the seller beware. Some of these locations may not have all the resources and knowledge of providing the correct pricing and grading for your catalytic converters. Reclamet has extensive knowledge in grading and pricing, assuring the most up to date and best price is given for your catalytic converters.

Why mobile scrap dealers aren’t the best option

Something else you have to consider about mobile scrap dealers that buy catalytic converters; it is difficult for dealers to offer you a top price if they do not buy a lot of catalytic converters regularly. They are most likely going to have to cut corners on profits so they can sell to a bigger buyer to make a profit.

We guarantee top prices paid here at Reclamet as we deal regularly with scrapping catalytic converters.

Where is the best place to sell catalytic converters?

The obvious answer is – a scrapyard. While selling your catalytic converter to a scrap yard may seem like a better option, be wary of those you sell to. As we mentioned earlier, one of the problems is the lack of knowledge from some scrap yards and being limited to giving you a up to date accurate price.

Catalytic converter serial numbers

Serial numbers are the best and most accurate way to determine the correct value price when selling your catalytic converter. Serial numbers provide, the year, model and make of vehicle or car it came from, also they can provide information about the precious metal content in the recovery process.

What if there isn’t a serial number?

If you are searching for a serial number on your cat and can’t find one there are a few things you can do.

  • Use Steel Wool – Some catalytic converters have corrosion on them, so you may have to scrub some of the rust off to find a serial number
  • There isn’t a serial number? – Some cats just don’t have a serial number and that’s ok, as Reclamet is a reputable buyer and we should still be able to identify it.

      Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
