Top 5 Benefits of Vehicle Recycling

So your current vehicle has reached the end of its usable life, but you’re worried about what will happen once it’s scrapped? If you’re one of the many who want to live a little greener, recycling your vehicle could be a great solution. At Cambridge Car Solutions we won’t leave your car, van or motorcycle to rust in a car scrapyard. We ensure that every part of your unwanted vehicle is repurposed, from the body, to the wheel, to the wing mirrors. Continue reading below to discover the top 5 benefits of vehicle recycling.

1. Reducing landfill waste

A surprising number of car parts can be reused or repurposed, meaning your vehicle won’t end up in landfill!

2. Refurbishing car parts

Even if some of your car parts are past their best, wherever possible we take the time to carefully refurbish older or broken parts so they can be reused for someone else’s car. This is especially convenient for car owners who need an odd part replaced every now and again. Not only is it green, it also keeps costs down for drivers as they don’t have to pay for brand new parts.

3. Materials placed back into manufacturing

When you hand your car over to us we’ll dismantle every component and crush the main body of the vehicle. The compacted steel can then be placed back into manufacturing for new car parts, household items or even cans of Coke! The reusing of materials in this way reduces the need for new steel or metal to be sourced and produced.

4. Make some extra cash!

Did we forget to mention we can also buy your scrap car – and pick it up for free? Vehicle recycling is a great way to make some extra cash while feeling guilt-free as you know your car is being handled responsibly.

5. Stress-free and convenient

Many people would agree that vehicle recycling is a stress-free and convenient process. At Cambridge Car Solutions we like to make it as easy as possible for our customers – we’ll pick up your car at a time to suit you and won’t charge you a penny for the collection. You can just sit back and relax, knowing your old car is in good hands and that you’ve made a little extra cash to go towards a new vehicle or even a holiday.
