If your car is damaged in an accident, remember that it may not be a total loss—it’s very likely that there are still salvageable parts of your vehicle that can be sold to budget-conscious DIY mechanics. Here at U Wrench It, we offer a huge selection of used auto parts, and we pay the most for junk cars in Atlanta. Read on to learn which used car parts are typically the most valuable, and don’t let your wrecked vehicle go to waste!
If you have a junk car with a working GPS system, you should definitely consider selling the car for parts. GPS systems and other automotive electronics are typically in demand from buyers for electronics stores or home mechanics working on project vehicles. Most late model cars also have anywhere from 30 to 100 computerized systems in them, all of which contain valuable metals and components.
Often a car will be damaged in an accident only on one side; in cases like this, the doors on the other side may still be in perfect working order! If the door is undamaged and working properly, it’s a valuable part for anyone looking to repair that model of vehicle.
This vital (and legally mandatory) car part can fetch a pretty penny due to the many precious metals contained in it, including platinum, rhodium, palladium, and copper. Plus, since they’re required to pass an emissions test, there’s plenty of demand for second-hand catalytic converters.
Rims, Wheels, Tires
We’ve done a whole post about the great value of used car tires. Since the rims, wheels, and tires are almost never the cause of a car getting scrapped, you can find plenty of them in good condition at an auto salvage yard. Hobbyists are often looking for specific rims, wheels, or tires, so if yours are in good condition, you can get some cash and your used parts may ride again.
Typically the fenders are composed of some of the strongest metals found in a vehicle, as they are designed to protect the rest of the car from damage in case of a collision. If say, your engine dies, but your fender is in grade A condition, it has a good chance of getting snapped up by a savvy car repair connoisseur.
It’s nice to know that even if your car is no longer road-worthy, it can “live on” in all of the other cars who will inherit its second-hand parts!
