At 1800 Salvage, we’re dedicated to helping people sell their damaged, second hand, or salvage cars quickly and easily. Along with the benefit of getting money in our customers’ pockets within days, we are proud to do our part in the car recycling industry to help both everyday people and the global environment.
How exactly does recycling car parts benefit you, us, and the environment as a whole — whether buying or selling?
Less Energy Use
Manufacturing steel for new cars requires burning of large amounts of coal. This releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and contributes to environmental pollution — an increasingly challenging issue our world faces.
In addition, mining for this steel requires vast amounts of energy use. These mining practices can be an environmental pollutant, and are dangerous to local wildlife, causing long term effects to the local environment.
The more we can reduce the mining and manufacturing required in developing car parts, the better off our environment will be. Recycling car parts is a highly effective way to combat these negative effects.
Availability of Parts
It can often be easier to find parts for your vehicle from a second hand parts seller, rather than purchasing brand new. Brand new parts can take time to ship, and are often only available overseas — especially for import cars. Second hand parts can be found in your local region, so you can get up and running again in no time.
Money in Your Pocket
Why send your vehicle to a landfill when you can easily trade it in and top up your bank account? Selling a vehicle you no longer need to a salvage car buyer is the easiest way to clear space on your property, and turn your old scrap into cold hard cash.

Reduce Waste in Landfills
A damaged, salvage, or written-off car that is not recycled simply ends up in a landfill. Recycling your vehicle and its parts will redirect this steel to other vehicles, or to businesses that depend on recycled steel. Recycling your vehicle offers peace of mind that you are not contributing to environmentally harmful waste practices.
As with many other things, purchasing second hand often presents significant cost savings compared to buying brand new. Recycled car parts that are deemed fit to be sold are typically in fantastic condition, and will serve your vehicle just as well as a brand new part would.
