Recycling Your Old Auto Parts

Pages: 1 2

Looking for a creative way to getting rid of your old auto parts ? Instead of simply selling the auto parts that you currently have stored in your basement or garage then there are more ways than one that you can use to get rid of or recycle them. After all, recycling your auto parts , or anything that can be recycled for that matter, is always a noble endeavor, but it just takes a little bit of knowledge of where to actually recycle your auto parts to in order to do it. If you’d like to recycle your auto parts , though, in some way, here are some suggestions of what you can do.

Contact a Junk Yard or City Service

The city recycling service may or may not recycle your old auto parts. If they do then you may have to set them out at your curb on a specific day of the month or week, or you may have to actually transport the auto parts to a specific city warehouse where they can be accounted for. Whatever the cost, though, having a city service take control of your auto parts is a very good thing to do because they can be reduced and melted down to their original substance and then transformed into something else. Recycling is always an option, but it is also very good for the environment to consider taking part in.

Another way that you can have your auto parts recycled is by contacting a junk yard to have them haul them away from your house or your garage. The junk yard service may or may not be able to give you a small compensation even though they will more than likely turn around to sell the auto parts that they get, but you can be assured that they will be recycled. Recycling your auto parts in this way is a good idea because others who are desperately in need of specific auto parts generally call junk yards first to see whether or not they can buy the part that they want.

Create a Work of Art

This may not be up on your list of the top things that you want to get accomplished, but an option to recycle your old auto parts is actually using them to build a work of art. If you have always wanted to build a robot then here’s your chance to create one. On the other hand, you could simply create a collage or abstract work of art. Furthermore, after you create the piece of art from your old auto parts then you are also able to sell everything that you make on eBay or other auction websites. One may be actually quite surprised at the type of things that individuals can sell on the internet, and there is definitely nothing stopping you from selling the work of art that you made out of recycled auto parts

The Danger of Buying Used Auto Parts

Pages: 1 2

When it comes to looking for automobile parts, there are plenty of ways in which a person can arrive at the parts that they need. However, some of the ways are authentic and clean cut. But on the other hand, some of the ways that auto parts are obtained are downright dangerous. One example of this is buying used auto parts from a junk yard, salvage yard, or auto repair shop. All of these places usually sell used auto parts that can be used for various things when repairing your car. What’s even more scary, though, is the fact that automobile shops generally put used auto parts in a car that’s going to be repaired, too, just in order to save the auto repair place a little bit of money. But here are some of the dangers of buying used auto parts if you aren’t familiar with them.

1. The History

When buying anything that’s used you rarely know the history of the product. The same holds true for auto parts , unfortunately. Consider that when you purchase auto parts from a junk yard you rarely know if that part has been through an auto accident and is a good enough piece to put on your car. Even though most of the auto parts that can be obtained through a junk or salvage yard are purchased at your own risk and without a warranty, there are some major risks associated with doing so.

2. Too Unreliable

As mentioned, used auto parts can also be purchased from auto repair shops. The reality at most auto repair shops is that the used auto parts that are there are usually kept in one large pile in the back of the repair shop. If you buy a used alternator from the repair shop then how would you know if it’ll last? It is very possible that the auto parts that are purchased from a repair shop are no good, or else if they are halfway decent auto parts they may just break down the next week. The auto parts that can be obtained through an auto repair shop or a salvage yard are just too unreliable to justify buying. Of course, you may very well be offered a refund or exchange if this were to happen, but the best thing would be to stay away from used auto parts altogether.

3. Getting Ripped Off

Another possibility, and perhaps the greatest one, is the fact that you are always able to be ripped off when buying used auto parts. Even if you don’t buy the used auto parts through a repair shop or a junk yard, if you do buy used auto parts through a private dealer then you always run the risk of getting downright ripped off. What is even more discomforting is the fact that you may never even be able to get a hold of the person ever again, too.
