The Process of Bike Scrapping

In Spain, the process of scrapping a vehicle or motorbike is complex compared to the UK or the US. The owner of the bike must formally sign off to decommission the motorbike. If the legally entitled owner is dead, then documents of its previous owner are required, including a copy of photo ID, death certificate, and will, which may contain who would be the next owner in line. The decontamination process involves removal of oil, fuel, and brake fluid, among other liquids that may be environmentally harmful. The parts that cannot be used as spares because they are beyond repair are handled carefully due to the possible presence of lead and mercury, and they cannot be mixed in the recycling of metal, plastic, and glass.

Wrecked cars and motorbikes, or even vehicles that have worn out after many years, are often collected for disassembling and metal crunching in order to recycle and reuse parts. With motorbikes, users can get some quick cash for scrapping them while feeling good about recycling. The process helps the environment and clears the street for newer bikes. If you own a bike that is ready for scrapping, consider having it done safely and legally.
