How You Can Find the Best Car Deals Online!

A good purchase would mean a quality car at the best affordable price. But, looking at the other aspects of buying an auto through an online process can be deceiving at times, for example, the photos of the car on the internet may not be a true representation of the car. Thus, before you go in for an online car purchase, here are few important checklists that may ensure you have a safe and better new or used vehicle buying experience:

1. Always do your homework- Once you decide to purchase a car, either new or old, it is always better to perform some research on the car dealers. It doesn’t matter whether you are purchasing a car through an online process, you must do a thorough research on car dealers who may fit your budget and other requirements. It is very important because if you select a car dealer with poor customer service then it may cost you much more than the real cost of the vehicle.

2. Know which car you want to buy- Always be clear in your mind about the kind of car you want to purchase exactly. You must know the model, features, specifications and any other thing you desire in a car. Today there are many online car dealers and so it is very important to know what you want. You must decide on your car so that you can narrow down your prospects or easily search and enjoy the ultimate online deal.

3. Examine the online dealer- Once you decide the car model you want to buy and collect, the next crucial step is to check the online dealers. You must be careful that you do not get taken in by the sales pitch. Often, dealers provide car protection through warranty and offer special services. But, good online car dealers also ensure to offer financial assistance and repair service as well.

4. Compare the price quotes of the car- Make sure you also evaluate the car quote you generally receive from one website to other. This evaluation actually helps you in understanding the price in the online market. It is always good to take some time to surf through several sites of auto dealers and note down what each dealer offers for the particular auto model you seek.

5. Always wait to respond and try for negotiations- It is always better to wait to respond to the price quotes declared by various online auto dealers. If they see you as too eager, you might not have any room to negotiate. Negotiation plays a vital role in making your car purchase deal a good experience. Act smartly and make them believe you have the time to find the appropriate car deal.

6. Ensure to have a car report- If your looking to make a purchase order of used car through online process then its better to ask for a vehicle report or the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Asking for a report or VIN helps you in knowing more about the vehicle’s history. It will also give you information on where and when the car was manufactured and how many owners the vehicle has had. Besides this, it may also help you know if the auto has ever been involved in any accident.

Buying a used or new vehicle online can be a bit nerve wracking unless you become accustomed to it. No doubt, online buying offers a lot of great benefits, but at the end you must follow safe purchasing tips that may help you save money and time. Following these essential tips can help you enjoy your shopping experience and allow you to find a new or used vehicle without wasting much time and effort.

Negotiating the Best Car Deal – 1st You Must Understand One Thing

The one thing you must understand to negotiate the best car deal for yourself is what kind of purchasing power you have, specifically what kind of car buyer are you. I have broken this down into 3 categories; The Player, The Average Consumer, and The Get Me Done. Since there are too many variables in purchasing a vehicle I will focus on the most common for consumers, which is PAYMENT.

To determine which one you are, here is what separates the three:

The Player – 760+ FICO/Credit Score, you can buy what ever you want. You generally have enough money in the bank to reach whatever payment you desire.

The Average Consumer – 640 to 759 FICO/Credit Score, you have good purchasing power. You are generally on a budget so payment is key because you do not want sacrifice your other luxuries in your everyday life. You also have some money down to HELP reach that target payment.

The Get Me Done – 639 or less FICO/Credit Score, you are what your title suggests in most cases and are at the mercy of the Car Dealership and Financing Departments. The banks are going to specify a certain amount that they will allow you to finance, if you are over that amount because of the vehicle you chose then you will have to make up the difference with money down, and generally averages out to about 25% of the MSRP or sticker price.

These are basic guidelines to help you when purchasing a vehicle. Now with the knowledge of what kind of purchasing power you have, the car dealerships and financing departments will NOT be able to push you around in there traditional ways. That’s what most consumers fear about car salesmen anyway, that they will drive off the lot in a car they don’t like or want, with a payment they can’t afford. This brings me to the definition of negotiating the BEST car deal for yourself.

You know you negotiated the best car deal for yourself when, You are driving off the lot in a vehicle you like at a payment you want and can afford!

It IS that simple. I hate to break the news to you but somebody else, some where will have bought the same vehicle for less or a lower payment, etc. Who Cares – You Shouldn’t. Don’t worry about the many other variables at the end, or after you have driven off the lot, because if the definition of negotiating the best car deal applies to you – then you have accomplished your goal and you have WON! That’s what it’s all about anyway.

David Peve has been a successful sales person for 18 years and counting, 5 of those years were spent as the top salesman in both New and Pre-Owned vehicles at 2 different Car Dealerships, before moving on to bigger opportunities. I have several other articles on making purchasing vehicles easier through understanding how a car deal works, with tips and techniques for the average consumer.

The Best Car Deals – Low Finance Rates Vs Rebates – Which Should You Choose?

How To Get The Best Car Deals:

Quick tips that will help you at the car dealer:

How to understand Rebates and low financing offers:

Vehicle MSRP: Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price – This price is always negotiable – don’t ever agree to pay MSRP

Exception: Some vehicles that might be “hard to find” or “limited in production” might be sold by the dealers at MSRP or, sometimes higher. This is usually called Market Adjustment.

Manufacturers Rebates: This is your money and has nothing to do with discounts given by the dealership. This money is given to you directly from the factory. Never let the rebate be used as a negotiation tool by the dealer. Any discount or negotiation from the dealer should be separate of any rebates offered.

Low finance rates: 0.00% 1.00% 1.9% etc… These are called Sub-vented rates, they too are offered by the factory and not the dealership. Do not allow a “low” finance rate to be used as part of a negotiation by the dealer. These rates are granted over and above any discounts, rebates, etc.

Exceptions: There are several exceptions to Sub-vented finance rates, but here are two that you really should be aware of:

1. Not all people qualify for these rates. So, if you suspect that you might have some issue that will cause you not to qualify, there is nothing wrong with expressing to the dealer that the low finance rate is something you are interested in, and you would like to apply first, before going through the long, timely steps of deal negotiation. Many dealerships will view this as unusual; however, any “good” dealer will be happy to let you submit an application first if you insist. Why is this important? As we always say, knowledge and preparation are the keys to not overpaying at a dealership. What happens if your entire deal is worked, negotiated and finalized with the dealer? Then you head over to the finance office to finalize the finance terms and payments… You expected to pay 0.00% interest, then at the last second you are told: “Sorry” because you don’t qualify… NOT GOOD THE WHOLE DEAL CHANGES.

2. Rebates and “low” finance rates can not always be combined. Some factories allow it some times, however there is no rule; you must do your homework first. For instance, Chrysler offers manufacturers rebates on most their vehicles, plus they offer low finance rates on most vehicles as well. Though, you the customer must decide which offer you want, you can’t have both. Although, sometimes Chrysler will run special offers that allow you to “combine” both the financing and rebate offers at once. But be careful, dealers won’t always tell you that these offers are available, if you are unaware and you agree to pay higher finance rates, you are stuck.

Commonly Asked Question: Which is the right choice, Rebate or Low Financing?

This is an interesting question asked by many customers, the answer is simple yet many people have no idea.

Remember this rule: You should do what’s best for you, do not ever inquire with a person, dealer, or anyone else that has any other motive than what’s best for you.

What that means is this: When you ask a dealership which makes more sense, the dealer will likely tell you: “Take the rebate – not the low interest rate.”

The reasoning behind this answer is, if you take the rebate you are actually paying “less” for the vehicle than if you elected the low interest rate. So, being that the vehicle price is the most important issue, you should always take the rebate. Is this correct or incorrect?

Rule: Don’t be concerned what the dealer is making or losing, it’s not relevant to what’s best for you.

Does the dealership stand to gain more if you chose the rebate vs. the low finance rate? The answer to that question is yes, the dealership does stand to gain more. They receive a little more in “reserve money” from the lender if you chose conventional finance rates. The fact is however; that this point is completely irrelevant. Who cares what the dealership is making? Why is that important anyway? Is there some rule that says a dealership is not entitled to make profit? The only person who is doing something wrong in this scenario is you. You’re asking the wrong party for information. If the complete and honest answer might cause the dealer to make less, chances are more than likely the answers will be carefully weighed to fall on their side.

Remember: Your concern is getting the best deal for you, don’t waist time caring about what the dealership makes. Prepare yourself by considering all the facts. Do not make the common errors of all the people we constantly heart about who over pay all the time.

Fact: People who think that dealerships are losing money on them are usually the ones who pay the most!

Note: Please understand the purpose of this and every other post we write is NOT to condemn dealerships for making profit. Why should a dealer not be entitled to profit? What right do we have to ask them to lose money? Would you ever go to a restaurant and tell them that you insist they sell you dinner and lose money? It’s a stretch, but equally as ridiculous.

The purpose of this post is to assist fair people in getting the best deal for themselves. Protecting people from being “ripped off” by a deceptive dealership is our motivation. We don’t claim that all dealers are unfair or “rip off artists”, in fact we are aware that most dealers are honest and forthcoming. Although, everyone is in business to make a profit and the topics written about within these posts are for the purpose of assisting “fair” consumers achieve “fair” and honest deals. Why do we keep mentioning “fair”. Because equal to us having no concern about a cheating dealership, we also have no concern about the “unfair” consumers who want the good dealers to close down their business and lose money.

“A GOOD DEAL IS WHEN BOTH PARTIES ARE SATISFIED”

As we have mentioned so many times; price is not always the most important issue.

The following is the one and only correct answer to the Rebate vs. low rate debate:

With any issue that causes you to make a decision there are always certain facts in place, those facts make up the “pros and cons”. With any decision we make, we weight the pros and cons and ultimately are lead to a decision. Then of course, we hope that decision was the right one.

Remember this rule: There is always a point where the two lines will cross, that point is where you will find the correct answer.

This means; there are variables that create change in every deal. For example: It may be a better deal for me to take the rebate, while it is a better deal for you to take the low financing rates. Let’s explain:

You might be financing $30,000 and your finance term is 60 months. The Factory is offering a $3000 manufacturers rebate or 0.00% for the 60 month finance term. Which do you choose?

I might be financing $12,000 – The factory is offering a $3000 rebate or 0.00% for the finance term. Which one do I choose?

Obviously the answers vary; your lines of “break even” will obviously cross way sooner than my lines. The reason: different factors in the two deals will yield different answers.

Here’s how you figure out the correct answer based on your factors:

For this example we’ll assume that you are considering a $30,000 car with $3,000 rebate or a 0% interest rate, and for the sake of finding an answer, we’ll assume that you’re putting $3,000 a down payment and you qualify for all offers.

First: Draw a line down the middle of a piece of paper; on one side write Rebate on the other side write 0%

Second: on the 0% side write in the sale price of $30,000 – and on the left side (rebate) write in the sale price of $30,000 as well.

Third: On both sides add in your local tax rate. For instance: if you live in Queens NY add 8.25% as sales tax.

Fourth: on both sides add $300 – this should cover DMV – Inspection and dealer Doc Fees.

Fifth: On both sides – subtract $3,000 for you down payment

Sixth: On the rebate side subtract $3,000 for the rebate

If you did this right, so far you should have the following results:

Both sides: should show Sale Price $30,000 Tax $2,475. DMV $300. Sub Total: $32,775

Rebate Side Should show $6,000.00 Total down payment and an “unpaid balance” of $26,775.00

The 0% side should show $3,000 Total Down Payment and an “unpaid balance of $29,775.00

Assumption: If you chose not to take the 0% – the dealer offered you a 5.5% interest rate.

Compare to see where the lines cross:

Next step – find an auto loan calculator – you can go on any search engine type in “free auto loan calculator”

I am not able to attach a link to this area of the post so I will simply suggest a very user friendly, free calculator (which we have no affiliation) is chase.com just search:

“Free chase auto loan calculator”

Calculate:

REBATE SIDE

$26,775 Amount Financed

5.5% APR

60 Month Term

Answer: Payment $511.43

Total Interest: $3,910.80

Total of Payments $30,685.00

0% SIDE

$29,775.00 Amount Financed

0% APR

Answer: Payment $496.25

Total of Payments $29,775.00

Summery: On your deal, 0% came out to be $910.80 less than the REBATE, so obviously the better deal for you is 0%.

On my worksheet, using the same method, it turned out that the rebate was quite a bit more of savings, (only because I was financing much less) if I chose to finance more money perhaps the lines would cross sooner.

Final notes to remember:

1) If you choose to lower or raise you down payment and lower and raise your amount financed, the out come of “which one” is a better deal will vary. So, keep testing the different scenarios using the method provided above and you will find the best deal for you. Every time!

2) Be careful – No rebate is final, while low financing isn’t: Keep in mind this very important consideration: If you choose low financing over the rebate – essentially you just paid more for the vehicle and you can’t get that money back. However, you chose to do so in return for free financing terms. (Very smart) You did your homework, you made your decision based on solid factors and you made the overall least expensive decision. EXCELLENT WORK! Though, you must remember you made this comparison based on a 5 year repayment term. If you keep the vehicle for 5 years, and pay as expected you win, your calculations were perfect and you achieved the best deal for you. On the other hand, if something changes and for any reason you decide that you are not going to keep this vehicle beyond the second or third year… Then, you just gave back the benefit of the low financing. The variables have changed once again and the better deal swings back to the rebate. So remember, in the privacy non pressured environment of your own home; carefully consider all your options and likelihoods. For instance, if you know you don’t keep a vehicle beyond a couple of years, this must be included as a decision factors.

Long story short: Always compile all the facts first, limit the variables that can change the deal and negotiate with confidence.

The Power of the Best Car Deal

Car dealers will do their dead level best to get you to buy a car from them that day.

Why?

Because it drives the sales managers nuts to think that every day that goes by that you’re not at their dealership, you may be at a competitors dealership buying your next car.

Getting the car deal is in large part about you staying in control of the entire car buying process and having the ability to walk away is your number one defense and weapon. So don’t give it up.

Car dealers will even offer to find and get the car that you are looking for if they don’t have the precise one that you want on their lot. If this comes up, remember that in order for the dealer to make a swap with another dealer and go get the car, there is going to be some type of expense incurred by the dealer in order to accomplish this. Because of this, it may make it a bit more difficult to get your absolute best car deal under this scenario, so you may want to leave and find your car at another dealer.

Keep in mind that a dealer would much rather reduce their actual on hand inventory and therefore you may find it easier path to a good car deal if you negotiate on a car the dealer does have sitting on their lot.

Now here comes the part where most all car buyers make a critical negotiating error.

You’ve done all your homework and you’ve finally found the car you want to work a deal on and it’s on dealer’s lot.

The salesperson puts everything together and then invites you to make an offer… do not make an offer.

Don’t be the first one to offer up a number. The rule of thumb when it comes to negotiating your best car deal is… whoever speaks first… loses. So let them start the negotiating process.

Tell them that you want their absolute bottom line, out the door, price.

Have all your research and paperwork in hand. In fact, you carry with you a little folder of all your information on the pricing of the car itself. This will send a very strong signal that you know what you’re talking about, you are a serious buyer, and that you know how to go about getting your best car deal.

Don’t be afraid to tell them that if they do in fact produce the best car deal that you can find, that will will be buying a car from them. Which you will, because that’s the whole goal here.

But make no mistake about it, the salesperson should be well aware that you are not only an informed buyer, but you will also be shopping around. So, the numbers they offer you, better hold your attention.

When to Buy a Car For the Best Car Deal

Buying a car is a process and not one to be taken lightly because leaving out or skipping a few details can cause you to spend much more money than you need to spend. One of those details is when to buy a car. After being in the car business for many years you come to understand the process and why some car buyers pay thousands of dollars more for the same car than others. There are many ways that this can happen, but the one I want to tell you about is timing or when to buy a car.

The automobile retail business operates on a monthly basis, meaning that everything they do, sell, finance and pay their employees revolves around their monthly performance. Sales goals, bonuses, commissions and salesman pay plans are calculated by the month. Therefore each month the sales staff, including the sales managers starts out at zero and everyone is on the same page. In the car business it doesn’t matter what you sold last month or last year, the only thing that matters is what you sold this month. For this reason when to buy a car for the best deal can make a difference.

When a new month starts out in the business of selling cars there is a little sigh of relief that the month is over and the new month is starting. The stress level is lower for the salesmen and sales managers because they are not looking at their sales and trying to figure out how to reach their goals by the end of the month. This is one aspect on why when to buy a car is important, but not the only reason.

The car dealership, much like any other business depends on the flow of traffic that comes through their showroom. So the first week of the month the sales people and sales managers are more focused on making larger profits on each car they sell rather than how many cars they sell. However there is a drawback to this mentality because if they try to too hard to make big profits they are likely to sell fewer cars.

Why When to Buy a Car Matters

If it is a good day and the dealer has been making profitable sales throughout the day they are likely to be more choosy about what car deals they will make and more likely to pass on the small margin deals. On the other hand, if it has been a slow day at the car dealership because floor traffic is light and very few sales have been made, the attitude of the sales manager on duty starts to go from picky to desperate. The sales manager never wants to tell the car dealership owner that they only sold 2 or 3 cars or even worst that they blanked (no cars sold). Rather than blank or have to report that very few cars were sold on a particular day the sales manager will do almost anything to sell a car. So you can see that the end of a slow day at the car dealership it matters when you buy a car. The best car deals for the dealer are made early and the best car deals for the buyer are made late and obviously when to buy a car.

Days and Times When to Buy a Car

Now the question is how you know when the automobile dealer is having a slow day or a busy day. Traditionally the slowest days for the auto dealer are Tuesday and Wednesday, but his is not cast in stone. I have seen busy Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the dealership, but they are few and far between. Saturdays are typically the busiest days unless you reside in a state where the car dealers are open on Sunday and then they are busy both days because most people have time on the weekend and not considered the best for when to buy a car. Coming in as the second busiest are Mondays and Fridays, They aren’t as busy as the weekend, but for some reason they can come close at times to the number of sales as Saturday and Sunday which are not the best days when to buy a car.

That leaves us with three slower days for when to buy a car and I have already talked about all of them except Thursday. Thursday seems to be a hit or miss day for the car business, sometimes good and sometimes weak. For my money I choose Tuesday or Wednesday for the best car deal if at all possible. Now if the end of the month happens to fall on those days you can really hit the jackpot. You have the two slowest days of the week and you can profit from the month end push of the car dealership to increase their volume.

Like I mentioned earlier about monthly sales pay plans and bonuses, the last few days of the month can really help you get the best deal on a car. At the end of the month your car salesman and the sales manager always want to add a few more cars to their sales because their commission and bonuses can increase dramatically, that’s when to buy a car. The end of the month always sells more cars than the beginning of the month, whether it is from the attitude and the desire to increase their bonuses and paychecks (most likely) or the fact that the dealerships has more traffic either way you stand your best chance of getting the best car deal when you buy a car at the end of the calendar month.

You may have heard that December is when to buy a car, but there is a flaw to that theory. The people that sell the cars and make the deals are paid based on their monthly performance and not their yearly performance. Therefore the car salesmen, auto sales women, sales managers and finance managers are the most motivated to sell a car when their pay is on the line, which is the end of every month. You now have all the reason, logic and information about when to buy a car and get a great deal. So come on down, have I got a great car deal for you!

Know the Matters and Get the Best Benefits From Automotive Batteries

Automobiles need batteries to get electric energy and for this purpose, automotive batteries were invented. These batteries are rechargeable and small in size, so that they can be set up in automobiles very easily. Especially, it is regarded as an automotive battery. The work of an Starting, Lightning and Ignition is to supply energy to the starter motor for an automobile.

Six galvanic cells are used to make these batteries and they are usually lead acid type. At full charge, an automotive battery provides 12.6 volts. One single Starting, Lightning and Ignition is enough for a small vehicle. But heavy vehicles like highway trucks, tractors etc. that have diesel engines use more than one batteries.These batteries are recyclable, for this reason, they are environment friendly too. And through this process, every year a huge number of batteries are produced. There are usually four types of automotive batteries. They are described below shortly:

• Flooded Cell Type: These types of automotive batteries are inexpensive and working for long time period. But, they require a lot of maintenance and care. But, they can be leaked or spilled at any moment.

• Valve Regulated Lead Acid: They are the alternatives of Flooded Cell type batteries and more expensive than Flooded Cell Type Batteries. These batteries are also known as “sealed” batteries. You cannot repair these batteries and maintain them neither. Hydrometer cannot be used to measure the charge of these batteries and you cannot replenish the electrolyte too. These batteries are maintenance free and are usually used to stay safe from any kind of leakage.

• Shallow Cycle: To start an automobile engine, a large burst of power is needed. And for this purpose, Shallow Cycle batteries are really useful. They can produce a strong power when an engine starts. After that, they are charged by the engine driven charging system. They contain higher specific gravity electrolyte so that the internal resistance can be reduced. Many thin separated plates are used to make these batteries.

• Deep Cycle: These types of batteries are made to provide continuous power for a long period of time. Especially, the small vehicles such as small boats, recreational vehicles, golf cart etc. use these types of batteries. To store energy from wind turbine or photovoltaic array, they are used too.

To use your battery for a long period of time, you have to follow some certain rules. Car batteries that use lead antimony plates may need water regularly. Specialists recommend using distilled water in a particular level. But, nowadays, most of the batteries do not require this watering. Always try to use a charging method that is safe. The most popular charging method is Trickle Charging. Do not over charge your or keep for a long time on charging. This may reduce your product lifetime. And even they can be dangerous.You should also be careful about storage and changing. And such, you can get the best service from these batteries.These processes are also useful for your own safety.

Auto Recycler for Your Damaged Car

Motor vehicles are the most recycled products because of the availability of auto recyclers. Auto recycling entails stripping a vehicle off its reusable parts and then crushing the remaining body. The reusable parts are sold and the crushed portion is recycled by a scrap processor.

Why recycle?

This is done to reduce wastage. Numerous cars are written off as scrap every year. It makes sense to remove the parts that can be used and reuse them. This is not only beneficial for the environment but also makes auto parts available at affordable prices to consumers. In fact, the car manufacturers bear recycling in mind while manufacturing cars. Hence, they provide parts that are long-lasting.

As is apparent, an auto recycler works on the principle of conserving the environment. The three Rs of environment conservation are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Reduce:

This implies using fewer natural resources for conserving the environment. If auto parts are reused, then a lesser quantity needs to be manufactured. If manufacturing reduces then the natural resources used are reduced.

Reuse:

Reusing has a positive impact on the environment. Hence, auto parts that are removed and sold enable reducing the landfill.

Recycle:

Recycling auto parts is the basic function of a recycler. Recycling helps conserve the environment as it reduces landfill and depletion of the environment for creating new parts.

Benefits of auto recyclers:

Good for the earth:

• Recycling is beneficial for the earth because of the following reasons:
• Reduces dangerous toxins from being released into our ground and water.
• It prevents the use of valuable landfill.
• It helps preserve the natural resources as it reduces the need for manufacturing new parts.

Good for your wallet

Recycled parts are available at nearly half the price as the original. Hence you save a good amount by purchasing them.

Good for your vehicle

The recycled parts are original and genuine made as per the original manufacturer’s specifications. In fact, many sellers of recycled parts even provide a warranty for them.

Hence, we see that auto recyclers, recycle End-of-life vehicles and protect water, air, and soil from harmful material contained in them.

So, if you have an end of life car, why sit around with it? Anyway, damaged cars do not have a book value so establishing a price for it will be difficult. Sell it to an auto recycler and earn cash in exchange! You will be doing your bit for the environment as well!

Economize the Maintenance of Your Car by Using Recycled Parts

Auto recycling is one of the most widespread recycling industries globally. Auto parts are recycled from end-of-life cars. Damaged and old cars have usually have no takers. Hence, instead of just abandoning them, it makes sense to recycle their parts.

How are cars recycled?

• Damaged cars are bought by auto wreckers or recyclers. They are taken to auto recyclers which are large, open spaces for such cars.
• Over here, the car is inspected to check whether it can be repaired and reused or it is a write-off.
• In most cases, the car cannot be reused. Hence, the next step is to recycle it.
• Recycling entails removal of usable parts and their sale. This is followed by disposal of the parts that cannot be reused.

Benefits of Recycling a Car

When a car is wrecked or damaged, what do you do with it?

Your options are repairing it and reusing it. Many a time this is not possible. In such cases, you can sell your car to an auto-dismantler. An auto-dismantler recycles the car for repairing other cars, selling used parts, etc.

An auto-dismantler removes all the functional and non-functional parts from a car. It also removes various fluids. The metallic portion that remains is crushed into a small piece and shred into pieces.

Recycling of wrecked cars has become a lucrative business option because the number of users of recycled car parts has increased.

Reasons for users of recycled car parts increasing:

• They are nearly half the price when compared to new parts.
• Manufacturers of car parts make these parts so that they are durable. This ensures that these parts last even after the car reaches its end-of-life.
• Used car parts have a good fit as they have been detached from original vehicles.
• Used car parts market caters to a wide range of cars.
• For cars whose models have been discontinued, the only option to look for spare parts is used car market.
• Vintage cars can find their spares in the used car market.

Besides these benefits, an auto-dismantler benefits the environment also. Imagine if cars were not dismantled and reduced in size, how much of waste we would generate? Cars also contain various hazardous and non-hazardous fluids which can impact the environment adversely.

Let us see what service an auto-dismantler provides to the environment:

1. Recycling of parts:

Various parts are removed from the car. Those that are intact are sold ‘as is’ in the market. Those that can be repaired are restored and sold. Others that cannot be reused as functional parts are used in other applications. This reduces wastage and saves landfill. It also conserves our natural resources by reducing the need to manufacture new parts.

2. Recycling fluids:

A car contains many fluids such as coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, etc. Some of these fluids are recycled and can be reused. While some other fluids can be converted into fuels, etc. and reused. This is beneficial to the environment because some of these fluids contain harmful chemicals. If they are released into the earth, they can be detrimental to the health of animals, aquatic creatures, and humans. Some fluids are inflammable and so cannot be released into the environment.

3. Recycling Steel:

Steel is required for a variety of applications. But its manufacture uses up valuable natural resources. Therefore, recycling steel reduces the need to manufacture fresh steel positively impacting the environment.

Hence, we see that dismantling and recycling a car is beneficial in numerous ways.
