If you would like to know ‘What happens to my scrap car after I sell it?’, then this article will help explain.
Hopefully, you’ve used the Compare My Scrap Car offering to find the best paying scrap yard and arranged for a free collection service.
From that point of handing your car over, you need to appreciate that a lot of work goes into ensuring your car is properly recycled.
This means that your car will not be simply crushed and it will be depolluted and the parts recycled.
Use a scrap car value calculator
So, when you use a scrap car value calculator to find the best payer – and the Compare My Scrap Car offering has reputable vehicle scrapping agents around the UK – you are sourcing the best price, depending on the age and condition of your vehicle.
Your car will be properly depolluted with harmful fluids being disposed of safely so no harm comes to our environment.
The battery will also be removed and it will be resold or recycled for the plastic and lead content.
Your tyres will also be removed and should they be in good condition, they will be sold on. Obviously, tyres are bad for the environment so it’s likely they will be shredded and reused for other purposes, for example making a child’s playground surface into a safe play area.
Not everyone will appreciate either that your car has lots of hazardous metals including mercury and lead which need to be removed and then disposed of safely.
Your scrap car
In addition to the glass and plastic contained in your scrap car, the recycling process will see these being recycled effectively.
But that’s not the end of the story since there are lots of parts that can be reused to help others repair their own vehicles.
These parts will be safely removed, cleaned and then sold on as quality used spare parts. It’s interesting to note that the parts removed from cars in the UK are also in demand from buyers overseas as well.
