With new car sales rising in the UK despite the economic woes, many consumers are turning to smaller, more fuel efficient models, electric cars, or hybrids. By 2020, 40 per cent of the 85 million cars expected to be sold worldwide will have some form of hybrid or electric capacity.
However, electric cars present new challenges- and new risks- to companies processing them as end of life vehicles. Newer systems and components, that dismantlers may not be familiar with, present new risks including high voltage batteries and strong magnets.
Scrap Car Network is ready to take on the challenge of processing hybrid and electric cars. Backed by an industry leading commercial recycler- Recycling Lives- Scrap Car Network has access to an award-winning, in-house training department that can provide training for our staff in dismantling the newer car models.
Recycling Lives is known for innovative solutions to modern waste problems, developing the country’s first ever processing centre for flat panel display screens.
Meanwhile, Scrap Car Network is the perfect option for disposing of your old car, if you have decided to make the switch to a more environmentally friendly model. We provide a nationwide scrap car collection service that offers the best prices for unwanted and scrap cars. We don’t just scrap cars though– we will try to release the most value for your car by looking to resell it before we consider scrapping.
With our nationwide coverage, we can get the best prices from dealers across the country. As a dedicated recycler, we have all the necessary resources to safely and responsibly recycle any cars that cannot be resold. This allows us to offer you the best price possible for your old car.
