Throughout the United States, auto salvage has grown in importance as the number of cars kept in working condition has dropped significantly over the past decades. Nationally, vehicles kept in service have dropped from just under 15 years around the 1960’s to 3-5 years today. Because of this, the amount of cars found all over the USA abandoned has increased in staggering numbers. Auto salvage in Los Angeles has grown quite a bit, however it has failed to keep up as the combination of high production and short life has increased the number of automobiles junked or abandoned each year.
Ironically, with the ever increasing amount of recyclable vehicles available, the past 10 or so years there have been a declining in actually scrapping them. This is due in part to our decline in the steel industry. By importing our steel, we have left mountains of it unprocessed as the price of steel scrap and auto scrap has fallen.
PARC’s Commitment to Auto Salvage
For most auto salvage yards, including PARC, the auto scrapping process is comprised of stripping off all metal, rubber, glass, fluids and plastics to be either disposed of, or piled together to be shipped to steel and other mills based on their type. This process is pretty quick, taking as little as 90 days for the entire process, but unfortunately these vehicles may take years to make it to the scrapping process.
Because of the amount of more cars being junked each year and fewer being processed into steel; a huge problem of pollution has now been created. Because most wrecking yards are filled to capacity, many of them will just dump vehicles in huge pits and long-stretching auto graveyards.
PARC has the ability to beat these statistics by offering multiple levels of recycling to the public. This includes the ability to recover auto parts still in usable and like-new condition to the public and a highly discounted rate. Additionally PARC will pay for vehicles to be recycled, and this service has helped in local pollution throughout the Los Angeles area including Lancaster and Palmdale.
