The mechanic has informed you that the cost to replace your gearbox is more than the value of your old car. In addition, it needs a new timing belt, brakes, and new tyres. At this point, it’s just not worth putting more money into it, and it’s time to recycle.

Recycling a vehicle includes many steps that ensure that it is destroyed properly and in an environmentally friendly way. This includes disassembling and using parts for other purposes. This not only helps the environment but can provide you with a small profit.
