WHAT IS FERROUS METAL
Ferrous scrap metal is a valuable resource. It’s used to make everything from car parts to appliances, and it’s one of the easiest ways to make money from your unwanted scrap. The word “ferric” is sometimes used instead of “ferrous,” especially when referring to the chemical compounds containing iron or other ferro-elements such as chromium, vanadium, and tungsten. This is because these compounds are chemically similar to iron, although they are not magnetic in nature.
These materials are crucial to many industries across the United States. Metal recyclers, like DJJ, keep these industries in motion by making a non-renewable resource more accessible, both for lowering production and acquisition costs. Ferrous metal is used to make everything from car parts to appliances, and it’s one of the easiest ways to make money from your unwanted scrap.
Ferrous scrap brokers are here to help you manage large quantities of unwanted scrap metal, optimizing the buying and selling process while providing exceptional customer service.
HOW MUCH CAN I GET FOR MY FERROUS SCRAP METAL?
The ferrous market is a commodity market that trades in ferrous metals like iron ore and scrap steel. Ferrous scrap is sold one of two ways: directly to a company, or through a broker. When you sell ferrous scrap to a company, they will pay you for what they want and then resell the rest of your scrap at their own discretion.
On the other hand, if you work with a broker (or auctioneer), they will sell all of your iron on behalf of yourself and ensure that everyone who shows interest in buying it does so at a fair price. In some cases, this can result in better prices than if an individual were selling their own scrap iron.
At every office, our experienced brokers receive up-to-the-minute data on who is buying or selling scrap, what kind, where and for how much.
Our unrivaled communications network gives DJJ brokers real-time price quotes, scrap availability and over
active freight rates.
We use all our brokerage and transportation know-how to successfully move recycled metal throughout the U.S., Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, South America, Western Europe, CIS/Russia, Asia, South Africa, and beyond.
Our growing network of suppliers includes everyone from small, family-owned recyclers to large global corporations. We’re meeting with suppliers and consumers, gathering information, building relationships, and making powerful decisions.
WHAT SCRAP CAN BECOME
Ferrous metals are used for a variety of purposes, such as in manufacturing, automobiles, and construction. They can be formed into a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on their intended use. Larger quantities of ferrous scrap must go through a broker to be sold due to the high cost of transporting it to recycling plants. At DJJ, we utilize our global network to locate the right buyers to get cash for your scrap.
COMMON FERROUS METALS
