What Do Car Wreckers Do With Your Car?

What Do Car Wreckers Do With Your Car?

When your car has reached the end of its life span your only option may be to send it to a car wrecker. At Advanced Auto Wreckers we service the Perth region and specialise in selected Holden and Ford models. Sometimes it can be cheaper to buy a new car than try to fix an old one, and a reputable  auto wrecker will be able to give you a fair price. Once it is in their hands, what happens next will depend on the condition of the vehicle:

Saving Quality Car Parts

A car may be written off or no longer roadworthy, but this doesn’t mean it needs to end up in landfill. There will be parts which can be salvaged and reused such as doors, seats, alternators, compressors, antennas and bonnets. Anything which hasn’t been damaged has the potential to be resold at a fraction of the cost of a new part. At Advanced Auto Wreckers we test each product for functionality prior to sale, and offer our customers a three month warranty. When we sell used car parts for selected Holden and Ford models it is not only an affordable option, but it helps to reduce unnecessary waste. Some car wreckers have an onsite mechanic and are able to not only sell parts to customers, but expertly fit them as well.

Recycling Used Cars

In Australia there are over 19 million auto vehicles registered and this has a significant environmental impact, but there are ways to minimise the harm. Once all the reusable car parts have been salvaged, or if the car is completely destroyed there is the potential for recycling parts. Certain components of cars can be used as scrap metal, and the rubber from tires can be melted down and turned into something new. In addition, any plastic can be given a second life, and even batteries can be recycled when handled correctly. Any fluids such as oils and coolants are removed prior to recycling.

Everything You Need

If you are concerned about getting your unregistered or written off vehicle where it needs to go, there is no need to worry. Broken down cars don’t have to sit around for years getting rusty, as an auto wrecker can arrange transport for you. Remember, selling your used car to an auto wrecker has its advantages, and the process should be a smooth one. When you deal with a reputable company your broken car problem will be eliminated and recycling will reduce further damage to the environment.
