Landcruisers are a range of sturdy cars designed by Toyota from Japan. They are widely popular in areas that require durability, reliability and off road performance. The cars were launched as competitors to vehicles like Jeep and Land Rover. The landcruiser wreckers are used parts that are sold to customers at comparatively lower prices. There are companies engaged in the activity of wrecking landcruisers and putting up part of the cars for sale. Landcruiser wreckers widely function at places in Australia like Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Gold Coast, Queensland etc.

The basic function carried out by a car wrecker at a junkyard is dismantling of wrecked vehicles which are brought, selling their usable parts and recycling the metal parts that are left over as scraps. Often the high demand parts of popular vehicles like the landcruisers are kept at the salvage yards warehouse and sold to customers at much reduced prices as and when the demand arises.

The parts that are usually removed and sold from landcruisers are:

Light assemblies (headlights, blinkers, taillights)

Car seats

Parts of the exhaust system



Engine and transmission (usually sold back to the auto company)
