Metal scrapping has immense environmental benefits, including reduced pollution and increased economic growth. While there are environmental and economic benefits of metal scrapping, some aspects of metal scrapping are greatly overlooked - the transportation of scrap metals to dump sites.


The transportation of scrap metal is a timely and meticulous process that professionals must only handle. Are you looking for an efficient scrap metal transport with affordable vans? Fortunately, this article discusses how to pick a scrap van and what benefits you enjoy when using van rentals from Moovick.

1. I have a lot of car parts scattered around my property. Can you help me collect them for scrap metal transport?


While some scrap metal companies might offer collection services, it's less common. Usually, you'll be responsible for transporting the scrap yourself. Renting a van is a good option, but consider calling a junk removal service specialising in hauling away metal. 


2. Is there anything I can't put in the van when hauling scrap metal?


Absolutely! Many scrap yards restrict hazardous materials like car batteries, oil containers, and pressurised tanks. Additionally, some yards may not accept appliances with refrigerants. You must check with your chosen scrap yard beforehand to avoid any issues when you arrive.


3. I'm worried my scrap metal is too heavy for a rental van. Are there weight restrictions?


Most standard cargo vans have a weight limit between 1,500 and 4,000 pounds. If you have a large amount of heavy scrap, like engine blocks, consider renting a heavy-duty truck or contacting a scrap metal company with a hauling service that can handle more oversized loads.


4. I only have a little experience sorting scrap metal. Can the van rental company help me identify what kind of metal I have?


Unfortunately,  most van rental companies won't be able to assist with scrap metal identification. It's best to research different types of scrap metal beforehand and use a magnet to differentiate between ferrous (magnetic) and non-ferrous (non-magnetic) metals. Some scrap yards offer sorting assistance, so you can inquire when you contact them.
