FAQ

At Sim Vic, we will gladly answer any questions you may have if you contact us. Before you do that, however, take a look at these Frequently Asked Questions - perhaps your question has already been answered?

Where are you located?

Sim Vic Scrap Metal Recycling is a company located in Surrey, but our services are available everywhere within the Greater London area, as well as areas further away as part of our special offer. We can collect your scrap for you wherever you are or you can come visit our junkyard yourself - the choice is yours!

When can you collect my metal?

We pick up scrap 7 days a week from 8am to 9pm. Depending on our availability, we can come over on the day of your order or on the next day. Our office is opened from Monday to Saturday, so make sure you call us during the office opening hours.

Can you pay me for my scrap in cash?

Unfortunately, buying scrap for cash is now considered a criminal offence under the UK Government guidelines found in the Scrap Metal Dealers Act of 2013. As such, we do not issue payments in cash, but we always do our best to ensure that you receive your money on your account without delay. Many of our clients can vouch for our reliability in that regard, as we never neglect any of them - they always receive their money on time.

What metals do you collect and recycle?

We take in all kinds of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Take a look at the full list to find out what exactly we mean by that. We accept orders for demolitions, construction, and building sites, as well as any other industrial units and private properties.

Do you provide skips?

Absolutely. Without skips, our work would be much harder to keep up.

Do you scrap cars?

Yes, we offer comprehensive car breaking services on top of our scrap collection services.

How soon can you pick up my scrap metal?

Usually, we offer pick up services at a same-day basis. However, due to amounts of workload for a specific day, we may be unavailable on that day. In those cases, we arrange for the soonest possible date, most likely the next day.
