Why should you sell your junk car to Irving's Recyclables, Inc?

This route, however, may be more trouble than it is worth. Factor in the time to coordinate a meeting with a potential buyer. Then entertain their bargaining for a lower price. Ain't nobody got time for that!

Vintage Long Island junk cars are commonly less efficient with fuel. They do not have the latest technology for reducing air pollution and other emissions. The metals from vehicles use approximately 75% percent less energy than making new material. Recycled steel is cheaper because new ore is not mined. Because raw steel is required for producing new steel, the material in North America is recycled more than paper, plastic and glass.


Recycling a Long Island junk car reduces the amount of non-sustainable materials created that would be used for a new car. Selling a damaged Suffolk County or Nassau county junk car to a local scrap metal yard brings you money but also helps to protect the environment. Conveniently located in Suffolk County, come see us to determine how much cash you can get for your car today!

Junk cars from the 2000's

While this decade doesn't seem that long ago, there are already candidates from this era which are welcome additions for cashing in on Long Island junk cars. Technology is always advancing in the automobile industry, though once in a while new ideas turn out to be duds.


Jaguar X-Type

While the model was produced through most of the decade, the X-Type did not meet its sales expectations. Ford had taken over Jaguar and decided to apply some features from the Mondeo. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Unfortunately, consumers were turned off by the lesser-quality Jag. The company was looking to cash in on the entry-level luxury craze. But it backfired.

Lincoln LS

This classy looking Lincoln started off strong on the market. In fact, the sedan was named car of the year by Motor Trend. Unfortunately, it lost steam just a few years later. Sales dropped significantly by 2005, even following literally hundreds of improvements. This model design was based on the Ford DEW98, the company’s rear-wheel, midsize template. Among the problems with this car was the high cost of replacement parts and issues with transmission.

Kia Carnival

Also known as the Sedona, this minivan first appeared in the late 90s. While “Carnival” is a somewhat unimpressive name for a car, the vehicle is now in its third generation and has since been marketed by Hyundai as the Entourage. Believing it would help to sell better, Kia decided to call it a “multi-purpose vehicle.” The latest models feature entry without key, alloy wheels and satellite radio. In 2009, the Entourage was actually declared to be one of the safety cars and was one of the cheapest to insure.


Subaru Impreza

The second generation of this car was introduced in this decade. A bit larger than its previous incarnation, this Impreza showed several improvements. When this Subaru model was first issued in the early 90s, it was a replacement for the maker’s now-classic looking Leone. Even during the early manufacturing of the Leone, the vehicle was installed with the exclusive "boxer" or "flat" engine.

Junk cars from the 1990s


There are several vehicles from the 1990s that may qualify for Long Island cash for cars. Included in this list is the Honda Accord and Civic, Toyota Camry and Corolla, Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-150, Mustang, Lexus sedan, Ford Ranger, Buick station wagon, Chevy, Nissan, Mazda, Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Buick Regal, Chevy Malibu, Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Daytona, Ford Explorer, Hyundai Accent and Kia Sportage.


Dodge Durango

In the late 90s, Dodge introduced the first generation, which was modeled after the Dakota. While assembled in Delaware, the Durango is now a contender for Long Island cash for cars. The power of this SUV can handle a tow up to 9k lb. Comfortably holding seven or eight people, this truck-style SUV had a raised roof to fit stadium type seating in the third row. This way people in the back row can see what's going on in the front.


Lexus GS300

The early 1990s saw the release of this higher end sports sedan. Lexus is actually a branch of Toyota. In fact, the GS300 was actually modeled after the Toyota Aristo. This Lexus was issued for a few years. When it first came out, many people viewed it as one of the most affluent vehicles on the market. 1996-97 models had five-speed automatic transmission. Previously they had four. That's an upgrade.


Oldsmobile Intrigue
Before Oldsmobile was phased out completely, the Intrigue was rolled off the assembly line. This potential junk car was created to replace the Cutlass Supreme and keep up with the Japanese market. Although this sedan was tied into the first X-Files movie, the vehicle only lasted a few years.



Anyone remember when these military size vehicles were introduced? It was all the rage, though most people couldn't afford this big and bulky cash for Long Island car. The most appealing aspect to the Hummer was it's ability to travel over any terrain. That is until you run over some sharp objects and get a flat tire. Regardless, this beast of a utility vehicle still commands the roads today.


Ford Aspire

Do you remember this small egg shape car? Neither do we. It was mostly a failure. Meant as a replacement for the Festiva, acceleration of the Aspire was poor. The vehicle was in production for only a few years until the pulling of the plug.

Dodge Ram

Although this American staple originated in the early 80s, the Ram was given a long-delayed revamping in 1994. The design sought to differentiate itself from the biggest competing trucks from Ford and Chevy. As a result, the Ram was noted for its larger grille and front-end appearance similar to a tractor trailer cab. The vehicle was a huge success, further assisted in mainstream pop culture by receiving a starring role in the tornado movie Twister.


Cadillac Catera

Billed as the Caddy that “zigs” (whatever that means), the Catera lasted for only a few years. The vehicle experienced a plethora of problems, including oil leaks and a failing crankshaft position sensor. It really did not live up to the quality for which Cadillac is known.


Junk cars from the 1980's


Junk cars from the 1980s are now classics. Even the infamous economical Yugo, which was $4000 brand new in the mid-80s. Some people would like to forget this vehicle existed. If you happen to have one, preserving and maintaining one of these is admirable. If the automobile was neglected and sitting in someone's backyard, it's a different story. Many now-classic cars from this era may be considered a Long Island junk car for which you'll get cash. This includes Buick Century, Ford Escort, Mercury Tracer, Jeep Gladiator, Ford Fairmont, Lincoln Continental, Honda Civic, Chevy Blazer, Renault Alliance, Toyota Corolla, Subaru XT, Pontiac Grand Am, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and the formerly exciting Ford Taurus which is seen in
the video to the right.


Buick Regal

This popular cash for car actually appeared in the early 70s, though was revamped ten years later. After the Regal was given a sporty look, it was recruited by NASCAR for the racetrack. In fact, the Regal was driven by Richard Petty, one of the top competitors. Cars racing around the track is hugely popular in this country.


Ford Escort

The Ford Escort became a quintessential vehicle for the U.S in the 1980s. Debuting in
1981, the Escort featured front-wheel drive, four-cylinder engine and independent suspension. A four-speed manual transmission was standard. The base model could be purchased with none of the extra bells and whistles. Mercury’s version was named Lynx. The following year, improvements were made to the Escort and it became one of the best selling cars of its era.

Chevy Cavalier

First appearing in the early 80's, the various versions of the Cav included two-door and four door sedans, hatchback, convertible and station wagon. In Mexico, the Cav had the same style as the Pontiac Sunbird. There’s the zinger. According to the commercial from 1985, the Cavalier "comforts your very soul." Just look at the exuberance shown by the people in  the video. By the way, most of the words used for a vehicle model are meaningful and originated hundreds of years ago. Cavalier, for example, has quite a historical background.


Nissan Pathfinder

While many modifications have been made to the Pathfinder, it has continued to roll off the assembly line for the last three decades. Several sub-models of the vehicle are considered to be a "crossover utility vehicle," which borrows from the commonly known SUV. Yet it also maintains features of a standard compact sedan. 



Station Wagons

The seeds of the station wagon were planted at early railroad stops. They actually served as a taxi cab. Parts of this vehicle were made of wood! If you grew up in the 1980s, you might remember station wagons for family trips or group activities with your fifth grade elementary school friends. Now it's all about the SUV and minivan. Times have changed. And the automobile companies know that.


1991 Honda Accord

While the sedan was already a popular model in the Honda collection, the Accord station wagon came to fruition in the early 1990s. The design was based on the Accord sedan, though allowed for twice as much space without the back seat down. Following the growing popularity and evolution of the SUV, this Long Island cash for cars candidate was discontinued in 1998.


2000 Saturn L-Series

This wagon, assembled in Wilmington, Delaware, appeared for a limited number of years starting in 2000. The L-series wagon had either a straight-4 or V6 engine. Unfortunately, it had some flaws and did not sell well, resulting in the end of the series. You will, however, still see this model on Long Island roads today. Saturn followed up this group of vehicles with the pleasantly named Aura. 



Importance of Recycling Junk Cars, Buses and Trucks

Junk Cars Suffolk County

Junk cars can be recycled just like Long Island scrap metal and it provides a number of benefits to the environment. Nearly every junk car has a frame made of steel. When that steel is recycled, iron ore is saved. And since coal is required to refine iron ore into steel, every ton of steel that is recycled saves close to a half ton of coal. Are you still reading this? Great, thank you. There's more.

The limestone that is destroyed for mining coal is saved, therefore protecting resources and saving time and energy. For junk cars, Nassau county recycling can be done at Irvings. The scrap metal of junk trucks and buses also reduce the amount of waste in landfills and stops dangerous chemicals from going into our groundwater.

Recycling the steel of junk cars, junk trucks and junk buses halts the need to create new steel. This cuts the need to refine iron ore and make it into new steel for new cars. It is more efficient to melt down the old steel and re-make it than to mine for iron ore, send it to a refinery and use energy to form the steel. Coal-burning plants and refineries are the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases. If you need to recycle even one junk truck, Suffolk county has Irving Recyclables which can help reduce the amount of these gases in our air.
