How long should my car last?

Posted by on Dec 11, 2020 in Aftermarket Parts | Comments Off on How long should my car last?

Few drivers want their cars to last forever. After a decade or so, a typical driver wants a new look. When your car is getting too old, decide when to part ways and research your options for junk cars.

How Long Have You Driven It?

Decide how long you’ve been driving your current car. Most modern car makes and models last an average of 20 years. The best cars run longer than 20 years; however, you’ll face more mechanical problems and have to replace old auto parts.

To avoid paying for one auto repair after another, buy a new car after 15 to 20 years. Your car should be efficient at all times, and you should never worry about sudden breakdowns or regular repairs. Instead of making another repair, look into getting rid of the junk parts instead.

Contact an Auto Salvage Business

When you’re ready to get rid of an old car, you automatically want to sell it for cash. In reality, a decades-old car is worth only $1,000 or slightly more. No one wants to buy a car and then have to pay for an auto repair or replace its junk parts. Instead, you may earn more money by selling the auto parts online. If those parts are worthless, and you want to get rid of the car immediately, find an auto salvage yard that specializes in removing junk cars.

Getting Your Car Ready for Spring

Posted by on Dec 2, 2019 in Aftermarket Parts, Cheap Used Auto Parts, Cheap Used Auto Parts NYC, Junk Car, Junk Yard Tips | Comments Off on Getting Your Car Ready for Spring

Spring is a new season that comes with new responsibilities. Know what is currently wrong with your car and fix any damages that you find. Here are a few tips to prepare the vehicle for Spring.

Get a Maintenance Checkup

Get a post-winter maintenance checkup before the season arrives. Getting a maintenance checkup is recommended to know all of the new problems that your car now has.

The first step is to inspect and maintain the tires. Have the tires inflated if the pressure has decreased due to low temperatures. Inspect the tires for holes or tears and rotate them if necessary. When it gets too cold, your fluids freeze, so have all of your fluids refilled.

Get Repairs Done

Make repairs as soon as problems are found. Fixing a dead battery is a typical auto repair that is made once winter ends. During winter, the freezing temperatures may have damaged some of your auto parts, resulting in newly formed cracks and leaks. One common problem is a cracked windshield that worsens if the crack freezes and expands.

Replace Old Parts

Remove junk parts that are rusted, cracked or damaged. Sell them to companies that specialize in dealing with junk cars. This is important when the repairs get too expensive to fix. Making a replacement is more expensive, but it will remain strong and intact for years to come.

There are certain things to do to prepare your car for Spring. When you have auto parts that are damaged beyond repair, go to a specialist who deals in junk parts and junk cars. Make any auto repair as necessary but also invest in maintenance. Have a professional check the windshield, engine or tires for damages. After a brutal season like winter, make sure that your car is ready for the next season.

It may take a long time to repair and cost a good amount of money; depending on how rusty is your chassis. You might need to cut the sections, fabricate, and weld new metal plates to strengthen the affected part. If you are lucky enough to find a new chassis you might use that and build your car on the newly found chassis.


  1. Parts should be always available; it’s a must on restoration.
