Although you love your car and she’s been your faithful companion for years, there comes a day when you have to let her go. If the cost of auto repair is more than she’s worth and you don’t have time or money to spend on auto parts – it’s probably time to consider the junkyard.

There are a few things you need to know before you junk your car.

First – make sure your car is really junk. An auto repair shop might be able to determine a simple fix. If the car only has a broken windshield, you might be able to replace it for an affordable price. If the repair shop verifies the car is only worth junk parts – move forward with getting rid of it.

Second – clean out all of your personal belongings. Remember – she’s been your ride or die for years and you’ve collected a lot of memories together. You also need to remove paperwork like registration and insurance information and make sure your vehicle title is in order. After taking it to the auto salvage yard – remove your license plates.

Next – figure out if there are any auto parts or accessories you might be able to sell for extra cash. Junk cars sometimes have aftermarket radios or rims that you can remove before selling for raw materials.

Then – contact an auto salvage company and find out what your car is worth. If your windshield is still intact – you might be able to get more money. Junk cars, depending on the age and condition, often have junk parts other people are looking for.

Finally, take one last selfie before sending her off and allowing her working parts and pieces to renew and revive someone else’s car. You had a great time together, but it’s time to move on. Auto recycling

Why vehicle recycling is the future?

Posted by on Mar 12, 2019 in Cheap Used Auto Parts, Cheap Used Auto Parts NYC, How To Change Radiators, Junk Car, Junk Yard Jamaica NYC, Used Auto Parts | 0 comments

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.
