The Metal Story
Metal Used Spares & Rebuilds was started in 2003 by the directors, who collectively have many years of experience in the motor industry. The company was started with a staff complement of 15. From that moment Metal fostered the idea that hard work, respect and order should be the driving force behind the brand. We have since 2003 increased our staff complement to over 75.
We operate a state-of-the-art fleet which is maintained to the highest standard. All our vehicles are managed by a comprehensive tracking system and monitored constantly. OUr fleet collects and transports vehicles on a daily basis anywhere within South Africa and across neighbouring borders. Our drivers are all highly qualified and experienced. We have connections with numerous regional towing companies to ensure prompt collection.
Metal Used Spares & Rebuilds owns 7 industrial properties covering a combined 60000m2. All properties are walled, electified and under lock and key, with 24 hour security guards. We have access to store yards in major cities across South Africa, including a 3-storey flagship showroom in the Johannesburg CBD hosting over 600 rebuild vehicles available for purchase.
We have partnered with many insurance brokerages, growing from 5 in 2003 to 125 by the end of 2010, and we are now ranked in the top 3 salvage dealers in South Africa. Our panel of suppliers receive service, respect and efficiency that has become expected of the Metal brand. This is made possible by complete transparency, individually tailored solutions and modern information systems practices.
Metal's rebuild selection is one of the largest in the country, having at any given moment close to 800 cars for sale. Collectively we sell between 250 and 350 vehicles a month. Our clients receive, as well as good service, vehicles that are neat, well-maintained and affordable. It is because of this that we receive a lot of repeat business as our customers are able to purchase and resell vehicles on a regular basis.
Our Used Spares
We specialise in LDVs and bakkies, covering all major brands. We have a highly-efficient system whereby vehicles are brought into speed-stripping bays and completely dissasembled into component parts, which are then cleaned, photographed, priced and allocated to shelving in our secure warehousing. These parts may then be purchased over the counter or online with countrywide delivery.
Being a Responsible Company
Metal Used Spares & Rebuilds takes great pride in the development both personally and professionally of our employees. We are are certified according to all regulations and government acts. We wish to grow our business constantly through the development of lasting relationships with our suppliers and customers.
