How does Scrap Metal Recycling Insurance work?

Our team has a specialist knowledge of the metal recycling and vehicle dismantling industries which stretches to over 20 years. We also have dedicated arrangements with the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA) and the Vehicle Recyclers Association (VRA) which means we can provide solutions for smaller dismantling sites as well as vehicle salvage yards and large metal recycling facilities with shedding plants, shear balers and suchlike.

That’s not all. We can help arrange:

  • Motor trade road risks with additional premises and liability cover available for VRA members
  • Combined liability including products and spoilt smelts
  • Property damage with cover for plant items in the open
  • Stock cover which can include non-ferrous metals
  • Fleet insurance

Our team aims to visit every site to offer a bespoke review of your insurance requirements and provide guidance around risk management of your business with support from the quality insurers we work with. We have a dedicated in-house claims team on hand too for when you need us the most and can provide period reviews and reports as an when they’re required.
