Most of the vehicles on our property are wrecked vehicles. Although part of the car is destroyed, the rest of machinery on it may still be in perfectly good condition. Many of the used parts are still valuable and can be reused or sold. Below is a list of standard auto parts on old cars that are still valuable. If you have any questions about a particular vehicle, you can contact, and we’ll let you know if we have it.
1. GPS System
Electronics and computer-based devices in cars are among many of the most valuable items merely because they are electronic. GPS systems fall into this category. Electronics stores, manufacturers, collectors, and other companies are always on the lookout for GPS systems.
Some of the sturdiest metal on your vehicle is in the fenders. Fenders have a practical purpose: protecting the wheels and other front and rear areas of your car. This makes them a valuable commodity if you can get them in excellent condition.
If a door is completely intact and all the parts work as they should, it can be a much sought after item in the used market. Many people will take a car door apart and sell the items separately. Therefore the whole unit is valuable.
4. Catalytic Converters
It should come as no surprise that catalytic converters are valuable. There are two reasons for this. First, they fall out from under the vehicle, and they need to be replaced right away. Second, they contain precious metals such as palladium, rhodium, or platinum.
Bumpers are among the most challenging used auto parts of a car to keep in pristine shape. They often take the brunt end of the action. Bumpers are made from a combination of aluminum, steel, fiberglass, and plastic. This combination of materials makes them a much sought after used product.
6. Air Bags
If you totaled your car, but the airbags were not deployed, you may be able to make some money off of the unused airbag. To save money down the road, many people will opt to buy an unused airbag. You can get airbags in perfectly good shape at our junkyard.
7. Wheels, Tires, & Rims
You may not think your cruddy old wheels and rims have much value, but to a car enthusiast or an auto body mechanic, your junker might have the much-needed parts they want. This is especially true if your vehicle contains aluminum wheels.
