Know about the valuable parts of a scrap car

Car engine:

Even if the car is old, if the engine is functioning, you can sell it and get cash. Sometimes, a few problems, like issues with the spark plug, oil pump, and piston of the engine, can be sorted out, and the old engine can be resold. Again, if you’ve recently replaced your engine, remove it before sending the car to the scrapyard and resell it later.

Transmission system:

The transmission system maintains the car’s speed. If your transmission system is still repairable, you can take it out and sell it later. Instead of scraping the whole car, save the transmission system for the future. Your old car can generate pounds to help you buy a new one.

Metal car parts:

The scrapyard will break down the whole car and extract the metal body parts from it. If your engine and transmission system are non-functional, you can still make a profit by selling the metal parts. You can sell off aluminium extracted from the engines. Apart from aluminium, you can also get steel, cast iron and brass from the scrapped cars. Once you extract the same, turn the metals into cash instantly.

Air conditioner:

Even if the air conditioner is not working, you can sell its parts and make some money. Some parts, like the condenser and compressor, can not only be sold but reused in a car later. Let’s say you’re planning to buy a car in the future. Keep the AC parts for future installations.
