What else do you buy?

We buy cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, and SUVs. They can be junk, salvage or good running used cars. 

What do you do with the cars?

We are affiliated with a professional recycler, so each vehicle is evaluated based on year, make, model, and condition. We can buy not only junk cars but salvage and used cars also. Some vehicles are scrapped and recycled for metals only. Some vehicles are dismantled for the parts which are sold to keep other cars on the road. Some vehicles are refurbished and sold as inexpensive used cars.
