Scrapping A Car with Rockaway Recycling Q&A

Posted: February 5, 2014

Since we have began scrapping in 1977, we have added to our list of accepted scrap materials. We more recently have added scrap cars. With scrapping cars we know you have questions for us. Here is a few answers you may be looking for.

How much is my vehicle worth?

Although we cannot give you an exact price for your vehicle because that depends on the weight and how much the price of steel is on a given day, you can always give us a call for an estimated price. But again, we cannot give you an exact price for your scrap car until it is weighed on our scale. Smaller cars such as Hondas, Fords and Subaru’s will be worth less money than larger vehicles such as a Ford Truck, Chevrolet Truck or Dodge Truck. 

Do you sell parts?
Although we do accept certain car parts, we DO NOT resell our scrap materials.

What parts do you accept?
We accept many car parts such as:

  • Catalytic converters
  • Vehicle wiring
  • Radiators
  • Wheel weights
  • Aluminum rims
  • O2 sensors
  • Starters
  • Brake rotors
  • Aluminum bumpers
  • Alternators
  • Car batteries and more.
To see a full list of all the scrap materials we accept check out our website where you can find all of the information about scrapping from cars to other materials like copper, brass and aluminum. 
Do you pick up scrap cars that cannot be driven?
We do offer a pick up service for scrap cars in the Tri-state area. Depending on where the vehicle is located there may be a fee for us to pick it up. If your vehicle is drivable, driving it to our yard to be scrapped would be a faster and cheaper (depending on your location) way to scrap a car.
What do you need from me to scrap my car?
You need to have a clean title signed for the car to be picked up and a valid ID. We also need a mailing address for a check to be mailed to. Otherwise you can come to our shop and get paid cash.
For any other questions feel free to contact us via phone or email. Always be sure to check out our YouTube page for videos that can help you earn more money with your scrap materials.
