sell your used car for cash

Portsmouth NH February 5, 2012 — Mills Motors ( says that when you start to think, "It's time to sell my junk car," you'll not only be helping your wallet, you'll also be helping the planet.

Every year tens of thousands of cars and trucks go to recycling centers (don't call them junkyards anymore). They come as totals from insurance companies, auction houses and car owners who might have a clunker in the driveway who say, "I want to sell my junk car."

When an individual says. "I want to sell my junk car, they are recycling more metal, plastic and other materials than they're likely to leave in their recycling bin in the driveway in twenty years. That's because acar doesn't just get crushed and melted down, it's meticulously picked apart to yield precious metals, circuitry, parts that can be resold and plastics that can be recycled. Only then is the body crushed for recycling.

When recycling centers pay cash for cars, they get aluminum from transmissions, engine cylinder heads, bracketry and other components. One aluminum cylinder head can supply enough aluminum to make thousands of aluminum cans. A steel body shell or frame can be made into a new body shell or frame without the need to dig iron ore from the earth or expend the tremendous energy it takes to crush the ore, melt it into iron and then create a chassis.

Used oil from the engine, transmission and axle is used to heat the recycling center or it can be recycled to make fresh lubricants. Air conditioning refrigerant is also recycled, which keeps it out of the atmosphere where it can damage the ozone layer. Coolant is also recycled and the catalytic converter yields valuable rhodium and platinum to make more catalytic converters.

If you're like thousands of people who want to get cash for cars that have been taken off the road, you can give us a call at Mills Motors; we'll agree on a price and pick up your car. The entire process only takes a day or two and we're happy to pick up any car in North America. Recycle your vehicle. A cleaner earth will thank you for it.
