We get to report great news again, scrap car prices have risen this month! There has been a modest increase of 3% compared to the prices on offer in March, meaning April has seen the highest prices on offer for scrap cars in 2018 so far!

Scrap prices for cars are a whopping 41% higher than they were at this time last year. It's brilliant to see the prices increasing each month, it looks as though prices could be levelling off and we may see them sustain into next month. However, due to the way that scrap metal prices fluctuate in line with global demand, there's never any guarantee of the prices each month. If you have a car that's ready to be recycled, now is a great time to make the most of the scrap car prices on offer.
