A recent study from IHS Markit showed that, despite a growing number of older vehicles on the road, the scrappage rate went up last year. In 2019, the scrappage rate was 5.1%, compared to 4.6% in 2016 and 4.2% in 2009.
The National Safety Council (NSC) has named June as National Safety Month. One of the aspects that the organization focuses on is road safety. If you have a junk car that is way too old, either because it no longer runs as well as it should, or there are no safety features to protect you in a crash, Gershow will buy that unsafe vehicle from you.
Selling your junk car is not only good for your wallet but has a positive impact on the environment. When you sell or junk a used car, salvaged parts can be used on older cars, while others are recycled and the metals used to create new steel, copper, brass, aluminum and other products.
