About Metal Trader in Adelaide

Trading Metals commenced business early in 2001 when two brothers, Jorge and Sergio Regidor-Yanez, with many years of experience in the scrap metal industry, decided that Adelaide needed a scrap metal business with a difference.

The goal was to create a business that suited everyone, from the individual cleaning up the shed at home, right through to large industrial businesses and mines.

We believe this has been achieved at our Gillman yard.

We try to make the atmosphere welcoming and friendly for small scrap suppliers so that they don’t feel daunted or overwhelmed when they come in. On the other hand, we are still large enough to process large tonnages of scrap that “big business” puts out.

The Gillman yard has all of the equipment required to serve you quickly, including 3 large trucks, 3 forklifts, a Bobcat, an excavator, 2 sets of 3T scales, 2 portable 2T scales, a weighbridge, and hundreds of bins of all sizes.

Finally, we are constantly making sure that we pay the highest prices in Adelaide for your scrap metal.
This is true whether you sell us 10 kg of scrap or 10 Tonnes.

Trading Metals was founded in early 2001 by two brothers with many years of combined experience in the scrap metal industry. Jorge and Sergio Regidor-Yanez set out to make a difference by building a scrap metal business that was designed to work for everyone.

Trading Metals was born. It was set up so that all the people in Adelaide had access to a scrap metal business, from the person cleaning their shed to the large industries and mines in South Australia. There is room for everyone at our 30,000 square metre Gillman yard.

Today we buy scrap metal from people and businesses looking to get rid of their old junk metal, and we also sell scrap metal to manufacturers that are looking for certain metals to make their products and parts. We have the facilities needed to ship anywhere in Australia or internationally.

We pay the highest prices in Adelaide for scrap metal, no matter how much metal you are recycling.

We have the equipment to handle your scrap metal fast and efficiently. We have many large trucks, forklifts, excavators, large platform scales, material handlers, weighbridges and hundreds of bins of all sizes.
