Getting rid of a junk car is not always as easy as it may seem. Optimally, people think the vehicle is a broken down old piece of garbage and that getting rid of it is as simple as 1-2-3. You simply call a scrap my car service, have them tow the vehicle away, and get paid on the spot. Getting rid of a scrap car is not always that easy, though. Some old vehicles have sentimental value to the car owner(s). So, to part with their vehicle is a very difficult task. Often, these people who are tied to their vehicles wonder what is going to happen to their vehicle exactly.
First, a scrap my car service tows it away. And where do they tow it? The vehicles are towed to a scrap yard. At the scrap yard, the salvageable parts are taken off of the vehicle to be resold to other car owners who are in need of those car parts. Some of these parts include tires, batteries, and catalytic converters. Once all the salvageable car parts are taken off of the vehicle, the remaining parts (usually just the body) are crushed. The remaining parts are comprised of different types of metals such as iron and copper, which are also recyclable. Eighty-Five percent of each junk vehicle is recyclable, according to the Department of Environmental Services.
When a loving car owner learns that his vehicle is going to be crushed, he is crushed. A lot of the times, potential junk car sellers will choose to not junk their car when they learn it will be crushed. It is a scrap my car company operator’s job to comfort the potential car seller and inform him that junking his car is a better option than to have it sit and rot in a yard. The operator informs the car seller that there are people out there that are in need of his car parts. The operator informs him that the car will go to good use: all the salvageable car parts will be resold and the remains will be crushed, to also be recycled. Junking a vehicle and recycling benefits people in need of car parts and it is beneficial to the environment as well.
