Should you sell your car, or is it better to scrap it? If your vehicle is too old or damaged to attract private buyers,
the latter is your most suitable option. But is going to a scrap car removal company in Sydney reliable?
The main functions of a scrap car removal company in Sydney
- Metal recycling
Junk vehicles are highly valued for their scrap metals. This is because the average car contains more than 1000 kilograms of different metals, including steel, aluminium, copper, and lead. Moreover, some of a vehicle’s parts are made with precious metals like platinum, palladium, and rhodium.
It would be a waste for these metals to end up in a landfill. So car removal companies will recover and recycle them for future use, especially for new vehicle manufacturing. Did you know that about 25% of a car is made of recycled steel?
Australia is a major manufacturer of metals, producing about 5 million tonnes of steel each year. And luckily, scrap metal recyclers can recover a significant percentage of the metal waste—about 90% of metal rubbish was collected from 2016 to 2017.
- Spare parts recycling
Car removal doesn’t just recycle and recover scrap metals. Besides its steel and aluminium body, a vehicle also contains numerous valuable parts, most of which can still be refurbished and resold for more affordable prices. For instance, if buying a brand-new engine replacement could cost over $10,000, a refurbished spare engine will only be half the price.
Therefore, scrap vehicle removal companies dismantle these spare parts from your car, ensuring they are still in good condition. Meanwhile, any component that can no longer be salvaged may be sold for its metal parts.
Some of the most valuable car parts to scrap are the engine, transmission system, GPS, and radiator.
- Minimising pollution
Car removal is synonymous with car recycling. On top of recovering a vehicle’s scrap metals and spare parts, a removal company will also ensure the process does as less damage to the environment as possible.
For example, the entire recycling process involves depollution, where recyclers dispose of a car’s engine oil, gasoline, coolant, and brake fluid in the proper waste bins. This prevents these toxic substances from leaking into the soil and destroying natural habitats.
