A big question that we get is about the different types of lead batteries and how they are priced and paid for over the scale. Lead batteries are generally always going to be in the same price range except when you have larger lead batteries like forklift batteries. These batteries with the steel cases will always be paid at a lesser amount because of the steel that is attached to them.
Other types of lead batteries that you will be able to sell include: car batteries, marine batteries, truck batteries, backup batteries, and motorcycle batteries.
With a lot of new hybrids cars and other vehicles you have to look out for Lithium Ion batteries so you can sell them correctly to your scrap yard. The way to tell lead batteries will be by the symbol “Pb” being stamped on the label that will be attached to the battery. The batteries have to have that label on them so you can tell before installing…or in your case, scrapping them.
Batteries are great items, we always recommend trying to get paid per pound instead of per piece so you are able to get the exact amount that you are owed and not a rounded number.
