old carFor Lawrence drivers that have an old vehicle that is just sitting in their driveway or garage, the thought of junking it has probably crossed your mind. If you’ve had this thought, there are various benefits of getting rid of your old car that you might not be aware of. Anestis Metals has put together a few advantages to help with your decision of junking your old car!

  • Cars that don’t run properly and are just sitting in your garage or driveway are essentially just paperweights that are taking up space at this point. This space can be used to store items that you actually use on an everyday basis.
  • If you decide to junk your unused car, most places will give you a cash payment the same day that you bring it in! This can be put towards a new car, maybe a trip or just save it for a rainy day!
  • One of the biggest benefits of junking your old car is saying goodbye to all of the issues that come with it and the costly maintenance. There’s no point in spending money on repairs or insurance if it’s not running and just sitting at your home.

If you have an old car that you’re looking to get rid of, contact Anestis Metals today! We are happy to answer any questions you may have about this process. Contact us today by calling us at(978) 681-6000 or by filling out our online form.


An easy and quick solution to make money is by selling just one type of material. You will get paid faster if you have just all aluminum siding or a box full of light iron since once you get to your local scrap yard, you will be able to scale everything all at once and get paid quick and easy. When having multiple items, it will take more of your time to weigh each different item and will take longer for you to get paid. Sort your items ahead of time in your own bins so when you bring it to the scrapyard all your scraps will be organized and ready to be scaled. By being organized and prepared, you will be able to have a quicker process selling and getting paid for your items at your local scrapyard like Anestis Metals.

It’s important to always ask questions and take images or videos of the scrap metal product you want to sell. Taking pictures of your scrap metal allows you to see specific details of your scraps, helps you separate your metals, and keeps you organized. Ask your local scrap metal yard if you can take a small tour so you can see different ways to sort and separate your metals. You might see a metal you have but ignored before so snapping a quick picture of the metal will help you remember it later on. Each scrap yard may have specific rules about taking images, so be sure to ask for approval before you take pictures.  A tip to stay organized on your scrapings is to take any needed notes and images. This will help you grow your knowledge and remember any scrap metal in the future.

Some tips when taking images of scrap metal is to try and keep your lens on the camera to protect it. Also, by taking horizontal photos of scrap metal you can get a bigger & more in depth vantage point of the scrap you are looking at. These larger images will show details such as wires and other small metal parts. More information and a larger image will make the entire identifying process easier when scrapping.

For all metals that are recycled with us, we pay cash! The amount of cash we will pay is determined by the quality and condition of the metal. We will inspect each piece of aluminum metal you have, and provide you with a free estimate on how much we’re willing to pay, and if you agree with the price, we will pay cash and recycle your meta!

Now, our customers are not just contractors and other craftsmen; we have recycled metal from residents, who are anything but a contractor! People, who have professions outside of contracting, can very well have plenty of metal lying around their home; old car parts, and appliances are just two that come to mind!

We have just recently moved our scrap metal yard from Somerville MA to Lawrence MA! We are really excited about this move, because we are now able to help more people with their metal recycling needs.

Though we have moved locations, we are still buying and recycling metal from our older clients; the only thing that is different is that we are now able to help more people in northern MA, as well as southern New Hampshire.

Just to remind old clients, and to inform our newer clients, we are going to go over what some of our services are.

To begin with, we buy and pay cash, for peoples’ unwanted, scrap metal; the amount of cash a given client will receive depends on both the quality and quantity of the metal that is being recycled.

Some of the metal we recycle include: iron, steel, aluminum, copper, brass, nickel, car parts, appliances, and other metals.

Our clients come from all over Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our clients are anyone from homeowners, to electricians, plumbers, contractors, all the way up to architects.

A good deal of craftsmen, always have an influx of scrap metal leftover after a project; instead of throwing the metal away, you should bring it down to our scrapyard in Lawrence MA, and make a little extra cash!
