VEHICLES CURRENTLY BEING DISMANTLED
The sale of second hand vehicle parts, often now called ‘green parts’ because of their environmental benefit, is as old as the motor car itself. The reuse of parts from old or scrap vehicles is the single greatest success story in the reuse/ recycling of any consumer product. Buying a second hand part not only saves energy in the manufacture of brand new replacement parts, but also extends the life of your motor vehicle. Already more than 80% of every vehicle is recycled in some form or other.
Yet despite this fantastic achievement, accomplished without any external financial support, and against which there can be no serious argument of its environmental benefits, the vehicle recycling industry receives virtually no public recognition or credit. But more than this, the expertise of the vehicle recycling industry helps keep many millions of motorist on the road by providing a cost-effective alternative to new parts. Without this valuable service, millions of people would be denied the mobility they demand.
How it works
We operate a ‘low tech’ approach to parts sales. In most cases, we do not remove parts from vehicles, but if you need help we will if we can. Once the vehicles are decontaminated by our staff we allow customers to come in, have a look round & remove the parts they need. We do not provide tools. You must bring your own tools with you. And you must be ‘competent’ to do so, as we take Health & Safety very seriously.
Before we allow you to remove parts, we have already removed the following parts for environmental and Health & Safety reasons:
- Wheels & tyres
- All operating fluids (including oils, coolant & fuel)
We sell wheels, tyres & batteries at our Stores
Please also be aware of the following:
- This is a no-smoking yard – you are not permitted to smoke anywhere on site
- No persons under the age of 17 are permitted on site
- No animals are allowed on site
- You must comply with all of the Health & Safety procedures on site, as outlined in the notices displayed at the site entrance, we are a Hi-Viz site.
NB. We now have an agreement with the Enviroment Agency where we leave shock absorbers complete on the vehicles in the DIY yard ( they are drained before the vehicle is crushed).
