If you have a vehicle that has broken down, is no longer road legal, or is inching closer to the end of its usable life, you’re probably thinking about what to do with it once it’s time to get rid of it. One of the best options for getting rid of a junk vehicle is to sell it to a scrap metal recycling facility, where the car will be broken down into its individual components and recycled so new products can be made from the leftover metals. The best part about junking your vehicle is that you can still get some cash for it and its parts, even if the car will never be able to be driven again! In this article, we’ll talk about some of the most valuable parts in a junk vehicle! If you have any questions about the junk vehicle recycling process, please contact our team at Middleboro Recycling today where a member of our team would be happy to answer any questions you might have!

Most Valuable Parts In A Junk Vehicle

Maximizing the value of your junk vehicle is crucial! Instead of letting your old vehicle sit around on your property and collect dust, you can earn some cash by selling it and its parts to a local scrap metal recycling center! The most valuable components of a junk car often include:

  • Engine: The engine is one of the heaviest parts of a vehicle and is made almost exclusively from metals that will be bought by recycling centers on a per-pound basis.
  • Catalytic Converter: Contains precious metals and is highly sought after for recycling.
  • Fenders and Doors: Body parts can be in demand for repairs on similar models. If not, they still contain aluminum and other metals that recycling facilities will buy.
  • Battery: Many recycling facilities purchase batteries that are leftover from junk vehicles.
  • Air Conditioning System: Contains valuable metals and components.

While junk car parts can be separated and sold individually, many recycling facilities (like here at Middleboro Recycling) will purchase entire junk vehicles and pay you for their scrap value. To learn more about our junk vehicle purchasing services, please click here or contact us today!
