Scrap catalytic converter pricing

We’re letting the cat out the bag by telling you that you’re probably not getting paid what you should be for your scrap catalytic converters.

While other scrap metal buyers sell their scrap catalytic converters to a local middle man (using average prices), at Endless we sell all of our catalytic converters on export – based on the true value of each individual catalytic converter that we buy. In this way, we are able to pass this price premium on to you – with no cap on the maximum amount you could earn if you have a high-value catalytic converter to scrap.

This is the most fair and transparent way to buy catalytic converters, and we are stoked to be NZ’s first scrap metal buyer to be paying YOU based on what your catalytic converters are really worth.

Selling your catalytic converter to Endless

Come one, come all! Whether you’ve got one catalytic converter or one thousand, you can sell your scrap catalytic converters to Endless. We purchase ceramic catalytic converters, foil catalytic converters, diesel particulate filters (DPFs) as well as loose catalytic material.

Our drive thru’s are open six days a week and our friendly team is ready and waiting to help you turn your cats into cash in four easy steps:

Step 1
Get an online quote

To get pricing for your catalytic converter, just fill out our quote form. Once we have your details, it can take up to two working days to give you an accurate quote. No, we don’t send our quotes via homing pigeons, pricing cats is a tricky business and it takes a bit of time.

Step 2
Click "Accept"

You’ve got your quote and you like what you see. Reply “accept” to secure your price and to give our drive thru team the heads up that you’ll be stopping by. Your quote is only valid for 7 days from receiving the quote, so shake a leg!

Step 3
Bring your catalytic converter to us

You’ve accepted your quote and you’re ready to cash in on your cat. All you need to do now is bring your catalytic converter in to one of our drive thrus. Please make sure you have your quote and a valid photo ID handy when you visit.

Step 4
Get paid

This is the easiest bit – you just hold out your hand and we put some cash in it. That’s right, you’ll get paid on the spot and walk out of our drive thru with a happy wallet. Good as gold!

If you have large quantities and a steady supply of catalytic converters to scrap, fill out a contact form and one of our catalytic converter experts will be in touch to help you find the best solution for you.

Still have questions about scrap catalytic converters? Check out our FAQs

General questions

When your car burns fuel, there are a lot of harmful chemicals that come out in the combustion process. A catalytic converter or a “cat” as it’s often referred to, is a device that reduces pollutants in exhaust gas. Its located in the exhaust pipe between the manifold and the rear muffler.

Catalytic converters are made of metals like copper, nickel, cerium, iron and manganese, but the real value is in the small amount of rare precious metals (usually platinum, palladium and/or rhodium) that can be found coated on the inner “biscuit”.

It’s the precious metals on the inside of your catalytic converter that are valuable, so it doesn’t matter if the exterior is rusted or dented. As long as the biscuit is still in its shell/casing and the inside isn’t broken, oil-fouled or burnt out – you’ll get paid full value for your catalytic converter.

We pay for the foil or honeycomb-like biscuit found inside the catalytic converter, so it’s super important that the biscuit stays intact so you get paid the full value. The best way to make sure that there is no breakage would be to keep the biscuit safely inside its encasing and to handle it with care. If you do find the biscuit is damaged, we can definitely still take it but it will be worth less because it will contain fewer precious metals.

Absolutely! Whether you’re a race car driver, an astronaut or a zoo keeper – everyone’s welcome!

Pricing and payment

At Endless we grade each and every individual catalytic converter to determine its TRUE value – no more average prices based on a “full”, “half” or “quarter”. Value-based pricing is the most fair and transparent way to buy catalytic converters, and we at Endless are very proud to be NZ’s first scrap metal buyer to be paying all customers based on what their catalytic converters are really worth. To get a quote based on the value of YOUR catalytic converter – fill out this form.

We trade the precious metals from inside the catalytic converters in various international markets, which are constantly moving and therefore can be volatile. It is very difficult for us to predict what global market prices may do in the future, which is why we update our pricing regularly to reflect the value in global markets. While our prices aren’t fixed, we will always offer you the best price available at the time of purchase!

Once you’ve accepted our quote, you can pop in to one of our drive thru locations to turn your cat into cash.

Absolutely! Whether you have one or 1,000 catalytic converters – we’ve got you covered. Catalytic converters contain precious metals and our customers are usually pleasantly surprised by how much they’re actually worth as scrap.

The reason for this is simple – because this is the easiest way to do it. It doesn’t require grading each and every catalytic converter that comes through the door; it doesn’t require securing sales on export; and it doesn’t require the buyer to take on any risk exposure in terms of commodity market and foreign currency fluctuations. At Endless, we don’t take the path of least resistance – we strive to pay you top prices and to give you the best possible customer experience. Why you ask? Because it gives us a real kick to see you walk out our door with a happy wallet and a happy heart J

Serial numbers

The serial number is usually stamped on its outer shell, which is often located in the square opening of a heatshield, corner, or edge.

You may find a few different codes on one catalytic converter, if this is the case it’s best to send them all through so we can determine which number is the one we’re looking for!

You may find that sometimes a serial number isn’t clearly visible due various reasons such as rust, dirt, or because it has faded over time. If you find that this is the case, pop on a pair of gloves and rub the serial number with some steel wool, you’ll find that it removes majority of the dirt and rust. Another couple of techniques would be to try spraying a touch of spray paint over the area (ensure to rub it off quickly afterwards with some paper towels) or you could also try rubbing a few drops of oil over the code.

If you’ve been scrubbing your catalytic converter and hunting for your serial number for ages and still can’t find it – no worries, some catalytic converters just don’t have a serial number. Although it may take a little more time, we are still able to price your catalytic converter based on the images provided and the make/model of the vehicle it belongs to.
