If you are scrapping a vehicle, it will either be considered a COMPLETE CARBODY or SHEET IRON.  That means, if your vehicle has both a motor and transmission, it is considered a COMPLETE CARBODY.  But, if it is missing a motor and/or transmission, it will go as sheet iron.  Please also remember that ALL vehicles (whether it is a complete carbody or considered sheet iron) still need a clear title that is signed off and a hole in the gas tank if you are hauling it to us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.  Thank you!

Hybrid Cars and Batteries

We will ONLY purchase hybrid and electric cars IF THE BATTERY PACKS ARE REMOVED.  If they are still in the vehicle, we will turn the car away and not accept for scrap.  We do not want to endanger our employees OR have upset customers because they are unaware of this policy.  As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the office for further explanation.
