After seeing a healthy increase in scrap car prices last month, there has been a further increase of 5% to prices in April. In last month's update we predicted that prices would maintain at the same level, so a slight increase is welcome news.

The prices being paid for scrap cars is currently at 201% on our index, that's double the amount being paid in April last year - the highest levels so far this year!

There are however some signs that prices could be starting to falter. And with the ever changing price of scrap metal, no one can be certain whether prices will maintain, or suddenly fall as we saw earlier this year in February.
