What Happens When You Junk Your Car

What Happens When You Junk Your Car

You have decided to sell your junk car and you have picked a junkyard to sell to. Now you might be wondering what happens to your car after the sale. First, the freon and battery will be removed from the car. If the battery is still good the junkyard owners will try and sell or repurpose the battery. Then the car is lifted up and all of the fluids will be drained. This process is complex and can be dangerous so it is best to leave this part to the professionals. Next, any salvageable wires will be removed and saved from the vehicle. The car will be looked over for valuable metals. These can be difficult to remove but they can be reused in other cars. This normally requires the mechanics to remove the catalytic converter and remove the platinum and palladium. Finally, it is time for the car to be crushed and to be sold by weight. The most important part of a junkyard is properly disposing of the vehicle and recycling as much as they can.
