It's already the end of the first month of 2018! This month we've seen a steady start to the scrap car prices on offer, they're up there with some of the highest prices seen during last year. The prices for scrap cars are the same as they were in December last year, and they're over 20% higher than there were at this time last year! So 2018 is off to a great start if you're looking to scrap your car.

Although we've seen scrap prices for cars sustain over the last couple of months, there's no guarantee that they will carry on throughout the following months because the scrap metal market fluctuates. If you've got a car to scrap, make the most of the healthy prices and sell your car for scrap today.

Is your car too good to scrap?

If your car is still roadworthy, or has parts that can be re-used - we can still give you a price to sell it. We'll just need a bit more information about the condition of your car so that we can tell you how much you'll get for it!
