For a long time, the image of the scrapping has not been very positive; in the collective iconography, they are identified with large garbage dumps where the corpses of those cars that nobody want are banished, the large cemeteries where tons and tons of scrap is piled up from the obsolete vehicles.
At present, thanks to the implementation of different laws concerning the treatment of waste from vehicles, this situation has changed. Nowadays, the scrapping is a space at the service of the citizens that has as main objective to reduce the environmental impact of the wastes that are generated after the ‘death’ of a car.
Authorized vehicle treatment and collection centers are listed and determined by the regulatory authorities ensure good practices in the management of waste carried out by them. Thanks to this, authorized scrapping has implemented a series of standard procedures that seek to adapt to the European and USA regulations and, ultimately, a reduction of the environmental impact of the junk cars.
The procedures for decommissioning a junk car has been centralized in the authorized junk car centers where the definitive, temporary or export of any car can be processed free of charge. In the case of a definitive decommissioning, the authorized center in question is responsible for issuing a certificate of destruction of the junk car, which will subsequently be presented as proof that the disused car has been made available to an establishment that will carry out the decontamination and recycling effectively. In this way, scrapping prevents the abandonment or bad treatment of junk cars that are no longer going to be used again, reducing the impact of scrap on the environment.
Spare Parts for Cars and Scrap Recycling
Another of the tasks carried out by the junk car centers is to avoid the dangerous contamination generated by the junk cars to carry out a process of reuse of the materials and elements that make up the car. On one hand, they take advantage of good car parts and recycle metals and scrap in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Vehicle Pricing and Sales
All these practices make scrapping an essential space in the creation of a sustainable economy, based on the reuse and recycling of the consumer goods. In addition to the aforementioned contributions, in some scrapyards, the vehicle pricing is also carried out.
Vehicle pricing is an essential step in the process of building a sustainable life cycle around cars, since vehicle pricing is used primarily in two circumstances which are as follows;
1 – Car Accident
When a car is declared as a disaster, the easiest option for the owner is to sell it. To do this, you have to start with the pricing of junk cars.
2 – Sale of Secondhand Cars
It is the other situation that requires pricing of cars to establish a target value on which to begin the negotiations with the future buyer.
These and other services are part of the fight carried out by the junk car center to protect and care for the environment every day.
