Scrap Car Price Update January 2018

Posted on 31st Jan 2018 by Rebecca Currier Posted in: Latest News

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.

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.
