While you’re either driving your newer car or just shopping for it, your old junk vehicle is being scrapped and gutted and made 100 times more useful than when it was just sitting in the driveway.

First, it needs to be gutted, which basically means that all the parts that can’t become recycled metals must be removed. This consists of many different vehicle parts for example, things within the interior such as the radio, mirrors, seats, windows etc, and everything under the hood that isn’t metal such as oils or fluids. Once everything is removed from the car, it will look completely empty and bare, but that means it is ready to be scrapped. From the pieces that were removed from the car the junk yards will determine if anything is in good enough condition to reuse in other vehicles.

In some cases people will need parts for their car or truck but buying brand new parts is not an option, therefore they look at junkyards where they can get a part for much cheaper. Therefore, people who sell their junk cars are not only saving the environment by helping Reduce, Reuse and Recycle but are also saving other people's wallets. Once the metals are separated and crushed they are ready to be reused.

Is It Worth Repairing Your Old Car or Should You Consider Auto Recycling in Denver?


November 2, 2018

Is It Worth Repairing Your Old Car or Should You Consider Auto Recycling in Denver?
Do you find yourself making regular trips to the mechanic, each time pouring more and more money into a car that just ends up leaving you stranded in the middle of the road? When will you decide that enough is enough, and that visiting the mechanic more than you visit the grocery store is probably not normal? You’re supposed to be able to rely on your car to take you from point A to point B without any issues, but instead you’re lucky if it even can leave Point A.

If you’re torn between fixing your car or junking it here are some things to seriously consider. Think about the lifetime your car has had, the older the car the more experience it has, more road trips, more carpool trips and overall way more miles. Instead of prolonging the life of your car, adding more miles and continuing to drive with the risk of it stopping every couple right turns you can be in a newer and more reliable vehicle. Also consider the safety of the car. Do you trust your car with your precious cargo, can you rely on it to keep you warm while driving in the winter, or to take you to and from work and school without worrying that the car may or may not start when you get into it? Next, consider the amount of money you have spent on trying to keep that car or truck chugging along.

There are regular things you will need to do to ensure your vehicle continues to run smoothly throughout its lifetime and that will cost money, but if you are constantly spending hundreds of dollars or more to fix one thing after another, is it truly worth it? Actually, it is likely that you could have had a couple of car payments made on a newer and more reliable car, considering all of the money you have spent at the mechanics. Vehicles are not meant to last forever, they do have a limit to the point where they can no longer be fixed but, even then it can still be useful.

If you find that it is no longer worth it to take your 18 year old car or truck, that has 185,000 miles or more on it to the mechanic anymore, and you feel it has become unsafe and unreliable then stop paying money to get it fixed and instead call ACE Auto Recycling to come haul it off of your property and put cash in your hands today! You’re car may have no more grocery trips left in it but it can still do you good one last time, by putting a little cash in your pocket and it can do the environment even better by being scrapped and recycled. Decide for yourself if your car has a few more rides to give or if it is time to start shopping for something younger, more reliable and even a little bit better looking, and if you realize it is time to part ways with good Ol’ Bertha call ACE Auto, where they’d be happy to take her and any other junk car or truck off of your hands!

See a Tow Truck in Denver? Make Sure you Follow the Move Over Law.

See a Tow Truck in Denver? Make Sure you Follow the Move Over Law.
Has your car ever left you stranded in the middle of a road or stuck in a place far away from home? If this has happened to you, then I am guessing you know the stressful feeling of being the only car stopped while other cars are zooming past yours at 60+ mph on an interstate. While you're surrounded by traffic on the side of the road, you have little to no room to get out and assess the problem.

A stalled vehicle is stressful enough for a person to deal with, not knowing what exactly is going on with their car or truck and having to figure out how to solve this issue quickly, without having the added tension from all of the cars that are driving so quickly and closely. Not only is it stressful for the owner of the vehicle but also for the responders such as the police, ambulances, or tow truck drivers. If you are driving and you hear sirens in the distance and see an emergency vehicle such as a police car or an ambulance, it is likely your first instinc is to move over. You move as much to the right as you can in order to ensure that the emergency vehicle can get through easily and ultimately get to their destination as quickly as they can.

Many people may not realize that it is also an action that should be taken when you see a tow truck driving with their lights on. It is not something that is simply done out of the goodness of your heart or something that is optional, but it is the law to move over when you see any emergency vehicle or tow trucks and service trucks with their lights or sirens on. The Move Over Law, ensures that enough space will be allotted for the tow truck, which is significantly longer than an average sized car and truck to get through to the stalled car quickly and efficiently. The law is in place as a result of both emergency responders and tow truck drivers who have been hurt and sometimes killed on the job because of surrounding traffic. The injuries and deaths that have occured may have been avoided in many cases if the other drivers would have switched lanes or slowed down if not possible.

You may not be able to help a stalled car in a physical way by giving them a jump start or by giving them gas, but you can help them by giving them a peace of mind and moving over or slowing down to ensure the most safety possible. ACE Auto is a family owned business, whose family has personally experienced a tragic death of a tow truck driver simply because of other unaware,careless drivers who did not move over during a car pickup. Help them help you and other fellow civilians. If possible, whenever you see an emergency responder or tow truck, switch lanes and get as far away from them as you can or slow down if not possible! ACE Auto has safety and efficiency at the front of their mind always. They want to help their customers safely and keep themselves safe. So always remember to Move Over and let those around you know as well. You can help make things just a little safer and easier!
