During these uncertain times as Coronavirus lockdown measures impact all of our lives, there was an expected fall in the prices being paid for scrap cars in April. The slight downward trend seen so far this year continued to fall more sharply in April. Scrap car prices were down 17% compared to the prices last month, and 24% lower than those seen this time last year.
The CarTakeBack Customer Services Team are safely working from home and are able to make arrangements for you to sell your scrap car. Our drop-off service remains suspended, however collections are continuing, following the Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene. Collections will only be carried out when it is safe to do so, for both our staff and for you.
About the CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index
The CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index is a rolling monthly index covering the last 13 months. It’s updated monthly using the prices paid for scrap cars at CarTakeBack recycling centres throughout the UK. The prices are shown as a percentage, using the first month as the base price.
We’ve taken into account that cars come in all shapes and sizes, which has an effect on their scrap value, by adjusting the prices to show what the average car would be worth. This means that the index gives a great indication of the movement in the value of scrap cars from one month to another.
To get a valuation for your scrap car, simply enter your reg and postcode into our instant quote form. You can arrange to have your car safely collected at a time to suit you.
