We're nearing the end of a glorious summer but the weather is still holding up, as are scrap car prices! In August we've seen very little difference compared to the prices on offer for scrap cars in July. Plus the prices are 22% higher than this time last year. That's brilliant news if you've got a car to sell for scrap.

There is the potential that the prices we're currently seeing could carry through into the autumn, however we can't make any promises as the demand for scrap metal across the globe influences the prices paid for scrap cars and there's no telling when demand could drop and prices could fall.

Now could be the right time for you to sell your car for scrap metal, whilst we're seeing prices maintain!
