Automotive recycling is a vital, market-driven industry.  Every year, more than 14 million tons of recycled steel is derived from junk vehicles.


One of the automotive industry’s best-kept secrets is its recyclability.  Across North America, automotive recycling provides around 40% of ferrous metal for the scrap processing industry.  Once a car retires from the road, 80% of its parts will live many more lifetimes, and the average recycling rate for steel and iron in cars is 90%.

Auto dismantlers, specializing in automotive aftermarket recycling, have specialized business needs requiring customized solutions.  We understand their business and what’s required to keep it operational.  Our team of experts provide enhanced value through efficiently designed, laser focused products and services that provide you with a competitive advantage. 

GJS Co., part of the Amwins Underwriting division, offers an exclusive auto dismantlers program that provides all lines of coverage for risks that are primarily engaged in dismantling autos and selling used parts. Target risks include accounts that have a higher percentage of dismantling and smaller percentage of ancillary businesses. 

With more than 30 years of experience in this sector, our programs provide stability, affordability and high-quality service designed to help you succeed. Partnering with us means you’re a priority.
