Do you have a vehicle that’s been totaled in an accident or simply does not run any longer due to mechanical issues? If so, it may be time to take it to the junkyard. Junk cars are unattractive and can be an eyesore to neighbors. You may think that you’ll be able to work on that car someday and fix it up so it can be driven again. But if that hunk of junk has been in your driveway or yard for years, it’s time to get rid of it and get some money for it.
That’s right—you can actually get money for junk cars. Metals of all types are in high demand. Cars have steel and aluminum that can be recycled. Auto wreckage facilities and junkyards help keep these less than desirable vehicles out of landfills, so the process is all environmentally friendly.
So if you have a junk car, you don’t have to donate it in hopes of a tax write-off. You can sell your vehicle to an auto wreckage facility and get some cold hard cash in your pocket today. Scrap Metal Services is a full-service facility that offers mobile car crushing services. We are looking for all types of metals, including steel, aluminum, brass, copper and iron. We take all types of vehicles and equipment. It doesn’t matter if it’s running or not—we’ll pick it up and take care of all the work.
It is estimated that as many as 15 million vehicles are put out of commission every year in the United States alone. This is a huge number of vehicles, and this can contribute to an immense amount of waste.
Junkyards do their part by recycling these vehicles. First, the fuel, oil and other fluids are removed from the vehicle. Next, the battery, gas tank and tires are removed. The gas tank can be recycled or sold, depending on its condition. The same goes for tires.
The owner of the junkyard then determines what to do with the remaining parts of the vehicle. Everything else has the potential to be repaired and resold. If it cannot be repaired, it gets turned into scrap metal.
