Purchase and sale of damaged cars.
Each workday of the year our crash car park is supplied with wrecks meant either for sale or dismantling.
Any motor vehicle, which is in too bad a state (and thus called Out of Service Vehicle: OSV), takes another way and ends up as spare parts. As soon as it arrives in our company, the OSV is directly stored in a closed accident car park, waiting to be dismantled.
Stages which the OSV go trough.
Getting rid of the pollution.
Before starting the dismantling, each accident vehicle is emptied of nocious fluids, either by drawing up (brake oil, radiators antifreeze, and so on...), or by gravitation (motor oil, gearbox, petrol, diesel oil,...).
The dismantling of a crash car
Once the crash car cleaned, it goes to the wokshop where our team of mechanics carries out the dismantling of all the mechanic parts and sheet metal parts that still work on the accident vehicle : motor, gearbox, steering rack-and-pinions, shok absorbers, radiators, interiors, controls, doors, bumpers, and so on...
It's obvious that the newest vehicles (less than 5 year old) are largely dismantled and that only the main parts (motor and gearbox) are dismantled on older vehicles. It is then up to the customer to take his toolbox to ensure himself the dismantling of the parts he wants.
Once the damaged vehicle dismantled, we still have:
It's important to point out that our 5 hectare park is drained and provided with a network of canals; the possible residual fluids go trough a hydrocarbon decanter.
Each part before finding a buyer, will find a place in the fitted shelves from the storage hall and in our organized shop. The parts are cleaned and thoroughly arranged by make and model; the main mechanic parts are under guarantee, what means that each one of them is checked out and works perfectly.
The last step of the life cycle of a OSV consist in satisfying the customer! A team of 4 persons is constantly present to inform, help and allow the customer to save money on his car budget by selling him second-hand parts called re-use parts or spare parts.
