The process of scrapping a car is made up of multiple stages which are amazing to watch. When a scrap car is purchased by companies like us we first strip the vehicles of any salvageable parts which helps keep other vehicles on the road. As soon as the vehicle is ready it is then fed into our car baler which crushes the vehicle into a cube around the size of 4 washing machines. Our transport department then move 30+ bales over to our frag machine which then chops all the metal into sizes no bigger than a pint glass.
All the frag feed from old scrap cars is then loaded into 40 ft containers and taken to the dockyard where the second process starts. The metals then get smelted down and re-used making new cars, washing machines, cookers and any other appliance which is steel!
Recycling vehicles is what helps keep the world moving, every year around 1 million cars are scrapped which makes that around 3 million tons of scrap vehicles. You would be pleased to know that around 86% of your scrap car is recycled and re-used, larger companies in the UK have now made use of plastics and other items which we used to consider as waste and found a recycling process for them which further helps the environment.
By using Car Buying Solutions your vehicle is guaranteed to be recycled and 86% of its parts re-used and made into new items or even helping a fellow motorist keep their vehicle on the road, the small things matter the most in the scrap car industry and that's why Car Buying Solutions recycle and re-use any parts which are salvagable, all of our team and directors appretiate that we only have one planet, many things which are deemed as waste are usually sent to landfill which is harmful to the environment.
