Contrary to the signs that we reported on at the end of November, when the prices being paid for scrap cars around the UK appeared to have plateaued, scrap prices actually continued to rise at the same rate. This took prices to a level 17% higher than November.

As the year 2016 comes to a close, the CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index ends on a high - 43% higher in fact than the same time last year. This means that on average, CarTakeBack customers who sell their car as scrap metal, are currently being paid almost half as much again than they were at the end of 2015.

With January traditionally being the time for a fresh start as we face the New Year ahead of us, it looks like a great time to cash in on the value of that old car.
