So your car is recycled into other steel products. Surprisingly, automobiles are the most recycled consumer products with an estimated 13.5 million cars worth of steel recycled each year. Not only is this beneficial to this environment but it lowers the cost of steel which is a raw material for the manufacture of cars.
The process of recycling a car is quite simple. First, it requires you calling a free junk car towing service and giving your vehicle details so you get a quote for what would be paid for your junk car. It is advisable to ask their requirements as far as selling a junk car. Some who buys junk cars could ask you take out the wheels and tires before bringing the junk car. Others could request you take out the gas tanks. Still, others could request just your name, address and the vehicle details while they tow your junk car free. The automobile could be a car, van, truck or SUV. From there, an appropriate towing truck would be dispatched to pick up your junk automobile, and then it would be taken to a junk yard where it is further dismantled. The re-usable parts of the engine compartment are taken out and re-sold while the carcass is taken to a larger shredder.
The shredding is done in less than a minute and the metal for recycling is separated with magnets while the other parts are thrown away. After the metal is separated, they are sent to individual plants where they are processed and sold to automobile manufacturers, steel companies and other vendors.
This whole process is very beneficial not only for the environment but also for consumers. If you have a junk automobile lying around, you could get cash in exchange for it. Moreover, this would be in just a mater of days. The amount paid for junk cars vary between $200 – $500.This is dependent on the weight of the car. Some SUV’s and bigger trucks can command a higher premium. Your junk vehicle is towed in about 24hrs and your check arrives in the mail not later than 1 week (of course, this depends on the vendor you select). The good thing is:
• You can get your rid of your junk automobile free, get rewarded financially and contribute positively to a cleaner and safer environment.
• If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, you can help friend get rid of their junk car by buying it from them and re-selling to a junkyard, thereby making a profit off it. A good way to earn extra cash.
• It is so stress-free. Think about all the trouble that could come up if you had to dispose your junk car all by yourself.
• You contribute to economic growth. People get jobs or have their jobs secured.
