The Future of Vehicle Recycling - Cars stripped, boxed and on eBay within hours!

Ever seen a car recycling depot so futuristic? Cars stripped, boxed and on eBay within hours! In this episode a very enthusiastic Jonny Smith was invited by eBay parts to visit what could be Europe’s most advanced vehicle recycling depot. Charles Trent in Dorset together with eBay are at the forefront of car dismantling, using data and the latest tech to champion Certified Recycled Parts (CPR) that are carefully inspected, used OEM components. Why? Because by buying a fitting pre-owned OEM parts, there’s far less energy and CO2 in manufacture compared to new parts, they WILL fit and the cost is far lower. For more info go here:

Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.

In this salvage yard tour episode Jonny also follows the full strip down of a Tesla Model S dual motor and a new 2019 Mini Cooper. The ‘disassembly lines’ showcase this brand new factory style method of dismantling cars for salvage and parts re-use. Within a few hours the parts will have come off the car, been catalogued, photographed, packaged, shelved and uploaded to eBay for purchase. Many of them can be delivered next. It’s an impressive system, and one that champions a circular economy (and doesn’t rely on supply chains of new OEM or pattern parts).
