We're happy to say that the prices for scrap cars have increased again this month. That makes August the sixth consecutive month that we've reported an increase to prices!

This month's increase saw prices rise by 4% compared to the scrap car prices on offer in July, making them the best prices we've seen so far this year. Prices are a whopping 98% higher than they were in August last year! Great news if you're looking to sell your scrap car now.

The prices for scrap cars look like they may remain at the levels seen in August. Though in the scrap metal market changes to prices can happen suddenly, as seen back in February when scrap car prices decreased. This sharp drop in prices can happen at any time. If you're wanting to sell your scrap car, now could be a good time to make the most of the healthy prices on offer.

the progression of scrap car prices over the past year.
