Our previous post at the end of April highlighted how the average price paid for scrap cars across the UK had clearly begun to rise. This upturn continued throughout the month of May, rising a further 15% on our latest index. We're now at the levels we saw earlier this year in January. Whether this increase is set to continue or not is another matter. In the last week while prices have continued to strengthen in certain parts of the country, in other areas we've seen prices begin to falter.
