Recycling a Car

• They are nearly half the price when compared to new parts.
• Manufacturers of car parts make these parts so that they are durable. This ensures that these parts last even after the car reaches its end-of-life.
• Used car parts have a good fit as they have been detached from original vehicles.
• Used car parts market caters to a wide range of cars.
• For cars whose models have been discontinued, the only option to look for spare parts is used car market.
• Vintage cars can find their spares in the used car market.

Besides these benefits, an auto-dismantler benefits the environment also. Imagine if cars were not dismantled and reduced in size, how much of waste we would generate? Cars also contain various hazardous and non-hazardous fluids which can impact the environment adversely.

Let us see what service an auto-dismantler provides to the environment:

1. Recycling of parts:

Various parts are removed from the car. Those that are intact are sold ‘as is’ in the market. Those that can be repaired are restored and sold. Others that cannot be reused as functional parts are used in other applications. This reduces wastage and saves landfill. It also conserves our natural resources by reducing the need to manufacture new parts.

2. Recycling fluids:

A car contains many fluids such as coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, etc. Some of these fluids are recycled and can be reused. While some other fluids can be converted into fuels, etc. and reused. This is beneficial to the environment because some of these fluids contain harmful chemicals. If they are released into the earth, they can be detrimental to the health of animals, aquatic creatures, and humans. Some fluids are inflammable and so cannot be released into the environment.

3. Recycling Steel:

Steel is required for a variety of applications. But its manufacture uses up valuable natural resources. Therefore, recycling steel reduces the need to manufacture fresh steel positively impacting the environment.

Defence Vehicle Manufacturer

Industry Experience – You need to check if they have been operating for a long time already or if they just starting. Of course, you must opt for veteran players as this guarantees honed technical skills and in-depth knowledge. Apart from industry experience, you can also opt for a manufacturer known for providing high quality products.

Flexibility – You need to check their in-house design capability as well as their modern production facilities. Determine if they are capable to accommodating customisations you have in mind. Ask also if they can integrate features that will make the vehicle more suitable for your needs.

Integrated Logistic Support – This will make sure that the military vehicle will continue to perform well throughout its functional lifespan.

In-depth Testing Program – When the vehicle has been tested thoroughly, you will get the assurance of quality features and functionalities and solid performance. You will personally witness when all the claims regarding such vehicles are true.

User Training and Maintenance Program – Be sure that the manufacture has a well-established training and maintenance program for the users. It is very crucial for vendors and manufacturers to have such in place as this guarantees proper working order always, most especially during missions. Basically, the manufacturers must cover training and education on how to properly operate the vehicles as well as on how to correctly maintain it to achieve the vehicle’s optimal performance.

Avoid Damaging Potholes

Always Stay Focused on the Road and Keep a Lookout for Holes, Cracks, Crevices, and other Road Obstructions

Keep a Legal and Safe Distance Between Your Vehicle and the Vehicle in Front of You

Never Swerve Away From a Pothole-Brake Gently and Ride Over It

Drive Slow on Damaged Roads

Watch Out for Hidden Potholes in Large Puddles of Water

Pothole Prevention

If you are a commercial property owner, it is in your best interest to maintain a safe and functional premises to avoid any liability, but also to attract more business with better curb appeal. Pothole prevention starts with accurate paving installation, and ends with on-going pavement maintenance. Be sure to choose a licensed and insured paving company for asphalt and concrete pavement installation. They can implement the proper paving strategies to protect your investment for years to come. As for routine maintenance, be sure you are providing regular debris removal, street sweeping, and annual sealcoating.

Improve Fuel Consumption

There are several things a driver can do to increase the miles they get per gallon. Changing up driving habits is the first place to start. Using slower speeds on the interstate, avoiding full-throttle accelerations, using steady speeds, and more, are all effective methods to improving your gas mileage. The first place to start, as mentioned before, is to change your driving habits in general. This includes the following:

  • Use Slower Speeds
  • Empty the Trunk Space
  • Reduce Excess Weight Inside the Vehicle
  • Avoid Extended Idling
  • Combine Errands and Trips
  • Drive Smoothly
  • Avoid High-Cruising Speeds on the Interstate

Slowing down in general uses less fuel. If you exceed speed limits regularly, or accelerate quickly from a standstill, it will rapidly use up the fuel in a car or truck. This is the same for highway cruising speeds. It helps to slow down to the lawful speed limit on interstates for safety; but it can also minimize daily fuel consumption.

Removing excess weight from the back seat and trunk can reduce the overall weight of a vehicle, which allows it to use less fuel to operate. Idling uses a great deal of gas as well.

Try to avoid situations that require a vehicle to run while not in drive mode. If stuck in traffic jams, turn the engine off to avoid overheating and massive fuel consumption. And last, syndicating errands and trips can reduce mileage in general, which in return, reduces the amount of fuel needed for each day.

On top of driving habits, careful vehicle maintenance is important to consider when it comes to saving fuel and improving gas mileage. For example, it is vital to use the proper engine oil for a vehicle. The degree of viscosity must be appropriate for the type of engine in a car. If a driver uses higher viscosity oil than required, it will create more drag on the internal engine components.

Some mechanics will recommend using more viscous oil as a vehicle ages, but this is false. It will cause the engine to work harder, especially in cold weather, and constantly reduces gas mileage with every drive. Other areas to improve or properly maintain include:

  • Tire Pressure
  • Spark Plugs
  • Fuel Grade
  • Air Filters
  • Check Engine Lights
  • Carbon Removal
  • Clean Air Induction System
