As Coronavirus lockdown measures have eased through June, there’s still some impact to our day to day lives and our businesses. After the dramatic fall in the prices being paid for scrap cars in April, things seem to be recovering. Though we still haven’t picked up to pre-lockdown prices, June has brought us closer. In June, scrap car prices climbed 10% higher than those in May and June’s prices were just 9% lower than those this time last year.
The CarTakeBack Customer Services Team are still safely working from home and are able to make arrangements for you to sell your scrap car. June saw the safe return of our drop-off service across most of the country. Collections are still safely happening, following the latest Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene. Collections will only be carried out when it is safe to do so, for both our local branches and for you.
About the CarTakeBack 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.
To get a valuation for your scrap car, simply enter your reg and postcode into our instant quote form. You can arrange to have your car safely collected at a time to suit you.
