Do you need to get rid of an old vehicle? Forget about selling it to a dealership or looking for a private buyer. You can find a more convenient, quick, and high-value solution through car wrecking services.
What happens during the car wrecking process?
Car wrecking can be divided into two parts: wrecking and disposal? Wreckers are more interested in recovering a vehicle’s components, such as its engine, wheels, and tyres. Meanwhile, the processors for car disposal aim to salvage the machine’s metals.
Both terms have been used interchangeably in the industry, and overall, the process involves these steps:
One of the most vital steps of car wrecking is depollution. This process involves the removal of toxic fluids from a vehicle, including its gasoline, engine oil, antifreeze, and brake fluid.
Wreckers must perform depollution before the rest of the process to ensure that no harmful substances contaminate the environment.
Car wreckers are constantly searching for affordable alternatives to vehicle parts, and dismantling old cars plays a significant role in this task. A wrecking company will disassemble your vehicle and remove its engine, transmission system, fenders, and bumpers until all that’s left is a metal shell.
The good thing about dismantling car parts is that everything serves a purpose, no matter if the vehicle is at the end of its life. For instance, if its engine is no longer working, it can still be scrapped for steel and aluminium.
- Crushing and shredding
Vehicle disposal or processing happens after the car’s parts have been removed. In this step, the remaining metal shell will be crushed and shredded using a large shredder, breaking the car into small pieces. This helps make the next step more efficient.
- Resource recovery
The average vehicle is 65% steel and iron. In addition, it contains a few kilograms of aluminium, magnesium, and titanium. Car disposal helps recover these metals and blends them with other metals, ensuring they’re strong enough for further processing.
Meanwhile, any part of the shredded vehicle that cannot be recycled, such as plastic, wood, and glass, will be sent to the landfill.
Finally, the metals recovered and recycled from your car will be prepared for transport. These materials can end up in various manufacturers’ hands, waiting to be made into brand-new car frames, parts, and more.
