We start 2019 with a slight drop in scrap car prices, with the value being 4% lower than it was in December. However, the price of scrap cars is still an impressive 35% higher than they were in January 2018, so people are getting good value out of their cars when they scrap them.

This downward trend could continue into the spring months, so if you need to get rid of your old car, now is an ideal time to do it, to get the most out of your vehicle.

What's the value of your scrap car?

The value of your scrap car is influenced by the global scrap metal market, the weight of any metal, and the value of any reusable parts. With a CarTakeBack instant quote, you'll see how much your scrap car is worth instantly, you just need to enter your registration and postcode to see the price on screen. We guarantee the quote for seven days, so if you need a few days to think, the price won't drop, even if the value of scrap metal does.
