The service offers four incentives for people who want to scrap their old vehicle

When it comes to getting rid of old vehicles, Montrealers can turn to the experts at FQNA Remorquage. The company buys unwanted vehicles at competitive prices and dismantles them to recycle parts for new products, including furniture and clothing.

The service offers four incentives for people who want to scrap their old vehicle. The first incentive is a cash payment for the old car, which can vary depending on the model and condition of the vehicle. The second is a discount for the registration fee, the third is a rebate on the price of a new vehicle and the fourth is the removal of the old vehicle from the property.

Another benefit is that the company takes care of transporting the old car from the owner’s home to the recycling centre. This ensures that all of the parts of the car will be properly disposed and recycled.

There is also the possibility of a refund of the registration fees for the old car, which can help the owner to save money on their vehicle insurance policy.

A third benefit is that the old car can be recycled, which reduces its environmental impact and helps in preserving natural resources. The company will dispose of any oil, lubricants or other hazardous substances that might be left in the vehicle.

The city of Montreal is undergoing a massive transformation, moving away from cars towards public transportation and bikes. It plans to replace all gas vehicles with electric and hybrids in the next few years, but some experts say that the number of cars in the city’s fleet is still adding to traffic problems.

According to a Montreal Gazette examination of data obtained through an access-to-information request, the city has 2,313 cars and 1,295 minivans and pickups in its municipal fleet. Most of the vehicles are owned by boroughs and central city departments, including the police, water, property management and planning, road infrastructure and large parks.

Some boroughs, including Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie and Ville-Marie, have more staff cars than others. Vodanovic said there scrapy moncton are a few factors that explain this, such as the boroughs’ close proximity to metro lines or the fact that employees in some boroughs drive to work and then take the bus or subway back to their homes.

In the end, it’s up to each municipality and department to decide who uses a staff car, how much they use it and whether that justifies buying a more expensive vehicle for their job. That’s what St-Pierre told city council’s finance committee during budget hearings in December.

He didn’t offer figures for the amount of fuel used by a city-owned vehicle, but it’s likely that most of the city’s fleet consists of a compact car and an SUV crossover.

Those cars travel an average of 4,408 kilometres a year, according to the Montreal auditor general’s 2019 annual report on the city’s fleet. That’s a lot of miles on the odometer, which makes them more susceptible to breakdowns and other issues, according to Ray Tomalty, a consultant in urban sustainability and principal of Smart Cities Research Services.
