Scrap Car Price Update December 2017

Posted on 30th Dec 2017 by Rebecca Currier Posted in: Latest News

In the final month of 2017, we’ve seen an increase to scrap car prices. The prices on offer for scrap cars are 9% higher than those in November. Plus, this December’s prices are almost 40% higher than the same time last year, what a great way to end the year!

Whilst the current prices could sustain into the new year, it’s never a certainty as the scrap metal market fluctuates. So why not make the most of the current prices and get some cash in your bank for the New Year ahead.

About CarTakeBack’s 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.
