scrap metal in the GVA
I have some catalytics I've collected from work that need a good home, and I hear they're worth money (just not to anyone in squamish)

anyone know of a place that pays top dollar for catalytics? Searching the interwebs didn't give me any insight, I guess scrap dealers don't need websites.

Thanks in advance

how much can you really get for a cat?

I've heard of people having them stolen and shiz.

$300+? depending on the year, make and displacement.

Huh?^^^ I'd be pretty skeptical at that.

I think around $100 a cat is what you're gonna see.

The last time I recycled a cat I got 130 bucks for a 91 mpv cat. The scrap value of the van was 400.

Theyre usually right around $100

wow, didn't expect them to be that much.

so I'll check out amix, any other places?

I don't know the names but go to Mitchell Island. They have 4 or 5 metal recycle shops out there

$50-$300 depending on if it's a cheap aftermarket or OEM 3 way

so I have a good idea what vehicles these came from within a few years, will that help me, or would they know what they're looking at and price it accordingly

Vancouver Core Supply on Scott Road (across from the new Tim Hortons and the Chevron) has a sign saying they buy core cats...
