Our Recycling Procedure
Most of our vehicles are purchased from insurance companies. They have either suffered accident damage, flood damage, fire damage, end of life vehicles or just unwanted. We have our own recovery vehicle that collects from all over the country.
As soon as a vehicle comes into our yard we run up to temperature and test as many components as is possible.
Once tested the vehicles are then depolluted of any oils, engine oil, gearbox oil, antifreeze, window screen wash oil filters etc etc. These oils are then stored in bunded containers and then given to relevant environmental collection companies.
We test all our vehicles, whatever state they are in we will endevour to get the vehicle running and test as many components as possible.
After the vehicles have been depolluted the mechanical parts are stripped down and then power washed/steam cleaned in our cleaning bay area. To keep to environmental regulations we have oil/water seperation tanks underground to eliminate any oil contamination to the water outlet.The parts are then cleaned and sprayed with a protective coating, marked with relevant codes and mileage details
Once our vehicles have been de-polluted of all oils and the engine''s and gearbox''s have been cleaned and shelved the vehicle shells are then stacked in the yard until most of the remaining parts have been sold.
After most of the parts from the vehicles have been sold or stripped and stored in our parts containers we then separate the metals into different categories, aluminium, London ali, & cast and the remaining shells are then taken to our local specialist metal recycling company H D Whites Littlehampton whom crush and cubes the vehicles ready for recycling again.
