What Does a Salvage Yard Do with Your Junk Car?

If you are finally ready to get rid of that junk car that is taking up space in your driveway or garage, it is time to call a reputable salvage yard like Orthodox Auto Company. Many salvage yards will buy your junk car for scrap metal. You certainly will be happy to have extra space in your garage and extra cash in your pocket, but what happens to your car once the salvage yard hauls it away?

Determine EOL

The salvage yard will determine if your vehicle qualifies as End-of-Life (EOL) and then will decide what to do with it. If there still is usable life left in your car, they might try to sell it as a salvage title vehicle. If the car has reached its EOL, its VIN number is taken out of the DMV system. This ensures that no one can purchase your car, fix it, and sell it without the consumer knowing that it was a salvage vehicle.

Quality Used Parts

Many EOL vehicles still have good parts that can be sold to customers. At Orthodox Auto, we meticulously inspect each car part to ensure it is the highest quality. Customers can either come to the salvage yard to pull parts themselves or search for parts online using our extensive online database.
