The US automobile industry is massive. The United States is the fourth largest producer of automobiles in the world, right below Germany and Japan and just above South Korea. Supplying 5.5% of the world automobile supply, of which there are over a billion. The influx of vehicles to the US is added by the fact that the United States imports 179.6 billion USD worth of the world’s vehicle supply, the largest importer by a wide margin. This gives the United States a massive surplus in terms of available vehicles to be sold, increasing total ownership rates. This, combined with increasing costs of car repairs, as newer, modern cars are more complicated and rely heavily on computers, increasing time and effort to fix vehicles, have lead to a rise in new cars being bought.
This phenomenon has caused a rise in car recycling, with nearly 12 million cars recycled each year, 80% of all automobiles in the United States. So it is no wonder why the automobile recycling industry is the 16th largest industry in the US, adding $25 billion to the US GDP of 19.4 trillion, and employs over 100,000 workers. And the United States isn’t even the only country to recycle it’s cars, while the United States recycles 12 million cars, Europe recycles 8 million, and Europe saves about 80% of an original car through recycling, roughly the same as the United States. And surprisingly, the majority of US recycling measures are undertaken by small business, as 75 percent of all automotive companies employ less than 10 people. To add onto the benefits of recycling, North American car recycling programs have saved over 85 million barrels of oil from being used in making new or replacement cars.
Vehicle recycling is a beneficial alternative to complete scrapping, as it provides jobs, assists the environment, and is becoming an attractive new business. As recycling becomes more mainstream, and the demand for new cars starts pushing older cars into the recycling circle, the recycling business is turning into a quickly growing industry, and an excellent investment opportunity into a growing worldwide entrepreneurial field, that has room only to expand.

Auto parts; Why are used parts better than new cheap parts?

Posted by on Feb 22, 2019 in Aftermarket Parts, Cheap Used Auto Parts | 0 comments

Any running machine is subject to tear and wear. A car’s windshield wipers, brake pads and shoes, and airbags need to be replaced after sometime. You will experience noises from your vehicle when a particular part has been worn out or even broken. It is advisable to research the auto part before you repair or replace it.

Rather than buying a new auto part, it is always advisable to replace a worn out or broken part with a used part even if it is a bit more expensive than the new part. This is so because of:

Convenience

An already used car part is easy to find as you know where to find it. New parts require a lot of research to find the best part to use. Old parts offer the simplicity of choosing an auto part.

Genuine

An added advantage of using a used auto part is that you might get a genuine part. Genuine parts have your cars logo and are the most ideal as they are identical

Quality

A new product is not always guaranteed to be of good quality. Actually what makes most of the new parts to be cheap is that their quality is poor. You might replace an auto part with s new one and find out later that the auto part is not durable. A quality auto part will serve you for a longer period.

Fit

Used parts fit perfectly and do not have a crumple zone, that is, they have a controlled manner in which they crumble when a car crashes meaning they are safer after an accident.

Used parts are also environmental friendly.

Avoid abused and Buy Used Auto Parts

Posted by on Feb 4, 2019 in Cheap Used Auto Parts, Cheap Used Auto Parts NYC | 0 comments

Once in a while, we have to replace worn out auto parts in our machinery as a maintenance practice. Some of these auto parts are very expensive, and we, therefore, find ourselves buying second hand or used parts which tend to be cheaper and can be as good as new. But we can also get to buy the abused auto parts which are in this case less expensive than the used parts wasting our money. Sellers will go to the extent of taking advantage of their customers by selling abused parts which are more less the same as the worn out parts.

As we have seen used auto parts can be a lifesaver especially for a classic car whose parts are no longer being manufactured. When buying a used part, a lot of caution is required to avoid the purchase of an abused auto part. Such precautions include carrying the old part for comparison purposes. Most of the used parts cannot be returned meaning if it is an abused part, you will end up wasting your money.

It is essential to avoid looking like a novice at the shop. Ask relevant questions regarding the performance of the part in question. At times even if you are very careful, you will buy a wrong or abused part. Ensure that the shop you are purchasing at can exchange it later or offer a refund.

It is also important to meet other people who use such a machine or car at a swap meet. They might advise you on the ins and outs of the mentioned auto part. They might recommend the best shop or shop to buy used parts avoiding the abused parts.

Why Crush Cars?

Posted by on Oct 3, 2018 in Cheap Used Auto Parts NYC | 0 comments

You may have wondered when passing by an auto junk yard, “Why do they crush the cars?”

The most obvious answer to this is to clear up space to fit as many cars in a given location, the overflow would quickly become a problem if we were to not crush the vehicles before hand.

But crushing the vehicles is just one step on the way to recycling the vehicle as a whole and when it comes to recycling there is a lot more than just stripping and reselling parts. This is just a small percentage of the junk car recycling market. You see, the average vehicle is comprised of more than 60% steel and iron and this could be worth anywhere from $200 to $250 per ton.

Today Americans are scrapping over 10 million cars & trucks per year, and as technology advances that number is only getting larger and according to the Environmental Protection Agency, new steel requires nearly 75% more energy than reprocessing recycled metal, also, recycled steel is less expensive because funds are not required to extract and refine the ore used in the process.

Actually, all steel that is manufactured today contains at least 25% recycled material, with a lot of this scrap coming from the auto industry. When a junk car is scrapped and recycled, each part is recycled and reused in some way.
