Catalytic Got Our Tongue

When it comes to catalytic converters, we could talk all day.
 
Why? Because this clever piece of machinery is a work of art in its own right.
 
When you scrap your car for cash with The Scrappers, the catalytic converter is one vehicle part that never goes to waste.
 
It plays the key role of reducing poisonous exhaust gases, like carbon monoxide, converting them to water vapour and less toxic fumes,  working its lung-saving magic at the heart of the exhaust pipe.
 
When we break a car and remove the catalytic converter, that’s simply the start of a new life with many future prospects. If it’s in good working order it can be used in another vehicle. Alternatively, the elements inside can be separated and recycled.
 
Although it’s only in tiny amounts, catalytic converters contain a treasure trove of precious metals, including platinum, palladium and rhodium.

 
These metals can be salvaged and made use of in other objects, from jewellery to computer parts!
 
Just think: What was once in a Merc, could live on in a Mac; what was once in a Porsche could now be in a PC; and what was once in a Renault could now be in some ring bling!
 
So if you have an end-of-life car, van, bus or truck you need to get shut of, ring us on 01204 388 488 or fill out our online form, and we’ll leave you to guess where individual parts might end up.
 
The one thing you’ll not be left guessing about, however, is our unrivalled generosity. As one of the biggest car breakers in the northwest we’re confident you’ll get the best price for your old car.
 
And we’ll deal with it greenly, giving parts like the converters and other components a new lease of life. Nine lives even, when it comes to the CATalytic breed.
