It’s Illegal to Let Junk Cars Pile up on Your Property

If you have been letting junk cars sit in front of your home, better watch out! New York State law prohibits the accumulation of junk cars on private property. It says allowing unused vehicles to continue to stay on the local premises “can reduce property values, be an eyesore and an attractive hazard to children, and be a potential health risk.” Instead of risking payment of a fine and letting the state take your cars away, get money for your junk cars by selling them to Gershow Recycling.

Under the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code, “two or more inoperative or unlicensed motor vehicles shall not be parked, kept or stored on any premises, and no vehicle shall at any time be in a state of major disassembly, disrepair, or in the process of being stripped or dismantled.”

Gershow will tow away the junk vehicle from your premises and pay you cash on the spot, regardless of how old the car is, or what condition it is in. The Long Island junk car buyer is the expert when it comes to Long Island junk cars for cash. They have been buying old and unwanted vehicles for more than 50 years. Gershow realized early on that Long Island had a junk car problem and knew they could do something about it. In addition, Gershow takes these junk vehicles and manufactures them into high-quality scrap products. This preserves our natural resources and protects our environment.
