  • Ashburton Yard Closure

    Please note our Ashburton Branch will be closed on Saturday 13th and 27th July for staff training exercises. We have chosen these dates to limit any impact to our weekday trading, however we do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our Saturday suppliers.

  • Selling on Saturdays

    Saturdays can be busy at Metalcorp!

    If you are planning to visit us to sell your scrap metals on a Saturday, please ensure you arrive by 11.30am.

    This will give our team the time they need to weigh up your metals and make payment.

    Customers arriving after 11.30am may not be able to be served.

    -Our Ashburton Branch is only open from 9.00am to 12.00pm.
    -If a public holiday falls on a Friday, both yards will be closed on the Saturday after (i.e., the next day).
    -If a public holiday falls on a Monday our yards will be open on the Saturday prior, as per their usual times.

    - Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
    - Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
