Good news to go along with this heatwave this month, if you're considering scrapping your car. In June we saw scrap prices increase by 4% on the previous month, making the current prices the highest ones seen this year!

Compared to this time last year, scrap metal prices have increased by 27%. Whilst it looks like prices could maintain into the summer there is no guarantee that we won't see a drop in the prices of scrap cars, due to the demand in metal causing fluctuating prices. Now could be a great time to scrap your car, as we're seeing the best prices of 2018 so far.

Looking to sell your car as scrap?

You can quickly find out how much your car is worth as scrap by entering your registration and postcode into our instant scrap car quote form. CarTakeBack will show you the best prices for your scrap car, as well as options for dropping it off, or having it collected. There's no obligation with your quote, and the prices are guaranteed for seven days, meaning if the scrap metal prices fall, you'll still get paid what your car is worth right now.

Got a car with some life still left in it?

As well as scrap cars, CarTakeBack buy cars that are still on the road, and ones that have parts which can be reused. Our instant car quote process is the same, just enter the registration and postcode of where the car is, and we'll show you the highest prices in your local area.
