Ottawa winters are notoriously tough on cars, especially those that don’t see much use. Salt and frequent freeze-thaw cycles deteriorate the metal, plastics, and rubber your vehicle is composed of. If you’re looking to get rid of a vehicle, it’s always best to do it before it’s had to sit through winter. Find out how to get the most for your old and unwanted cars from Scrap My Car before the first freeze-thaw cycle of the year!
There’s an old joke that while you never see a full windshield attached to a car out west, because of the gravel they use on roads; you never see a full vehicle attached to it’s windshield in Ontario, because the province is required to used salt instead. The fact of the matter is that Ontario, and Ottawa especially, presents a ‘perfect storm’ of environmental conditions to deteriorate vehicles. Not only does the salt laid on roads all winter long corrosively degrade the metal underneath your car, but every freeze-thaw cycle an unused vehicle is exposed to compounds the problem by allowing salt to seep into every nook and crevice. Salt and freeze-thaw cycles are rough on normal vehicles, but even worse on those that don’t see much (or any) use. Because they aren’t in motion or ever seeing the opportunity to wash-away existing salt, they continually deteriorate, salt eroding metal day and night.
