Illinois Demolition Services

Illinois Demolition Services

When you think of demolition services, you may imagine a wrecking ball knocking down a building. However, there are other demolition services out there. One common one is auto demolition, and we’re not talking about demolition derbies. Vehicles that are in poor condition and are not running can be taken to junkyards and salvaged. The junkyard can haul your vehicle and remove any functioning parts. It can then resell those parts. Any parts that are unusable can be turned into scrap metal. It’s a different type of recycling process that helps save the environment.

Scrap Metal Services is a full-service facility that serves the Illinois area. We offer demolition services such as mobile car crushing. If you have an ancient vehicle that is no longer running, contact us and we can offer you a little cash. We take all types of vehicles, running or not. We are always in need of various types of metals, so instead of hanging onto a junk car that you can’t use, call Scrap Metal Services and we’ll take it off your hands. We care about the customer experience and will treat you with respect.

Should You Use a Demolition Service?

Not every old car is destined for the junkyard. Some cars are still usable and can be resold. If your car is older, but still runs, you can sell it and still get at least a few hundred dollars out of it. However, if your car has been totaled in an accident and doesn’t run, selling it to a junkyard is your best bet. You get a few hundred dollars and you get the car out of your garage, driveway or yard. The junkyard gets to recycle it and make some money in the process. It’s a win-win situation.

The amount of money you will receive for your junk vehicle will vary depending on its make and model, year, condition and the price of scrap metal. The price of scrap metal has gone down significantly in recent years, so if getting rid of your junk car is something you have been considering, it’s better to do it sooner rather than later—before prices drop even more. Also, you will receive more money if your car is still running. That’s because cars that are still operable can be sold as-is in auctions to fetch a higher dollar amount.
