Which Parts of a Car Can Be Recycled?

In the auto recycling industry, metal is the motivator. If it is made from metal and resides within a motorized vehicle, it can be recycled, re-purposed, and reused. Furthermore, it can be sold for cash to a metal recycler. This includes everything from frame and undercarriage, to wheels, catalytic converters, engines, mufflers, radiators, transmissions, brakes, rotors, head gaskets, and more. The electrical components are also accepted since most contain copper and other valuable metals.

What Happens to the Car When it is Recycled?

The first step to the junk car recycling process is comprehensive inspection to determine if the vehicle should be repaired and resold, or dismantled and recycled. If it is to be recycled, the vehicle will be drained of fluids, and then dismantled for parts, starting with lifting the transmission and engine out of the chassis. After that, the rest of the parts are removed, cleaned, sorted, tagged, and repurposed. At the end, the car body is crushed and shredded for new metal.

How Much is a Junk Car Worth?

The amount of money a junk car is worth depends on several factors, primarily the current market values for metal and the total weight of the vehicle. Professional metal recycling companies retain state of the art equipment, like electronic platform scales and similar technologies. Contact our professional Indianapolis metal recyclers to receive personalized quotes for your scrap metal.

Do I Need a Title to Sell a Junk Car?

Having a title is not necessary, but having a vehicle with a title is worth more because of the potential to resell the automobile. If you have questions about your title, please reference the Bureau of Motor Vehicles webpage regarding Titles.
