  • Should I strip my no.1 armoured cable?

    You should only strip your no.1 armoured cables if you have the appropriate tools to do so.

    Since the copper content inside of these cables largely determines their value, it’s a good idea to extract it by removing the earth and plastic cores that encase it.

    However, this process can be messy and time-consuming. If you don’t strip your cables with professional tools, you could damage the copper content inside of them and reduce their scrap value.

  • Where can I sell no.1 armoured cable?

    Most metal dealers in the UK remove no.1 armoured cables for scrap.

  • Why is no.1 armoured cable valuable?

    The main reason why no.1 armoured cable is so valuable is due to the high amount of copper it contains.

    Scrap copper is sought after by most scrap yards in the UK and is almost always in high supply and demand.

    The armour inside of these cables can also increase their value if it’s made from a valuable metal like lead.
