In the previous CarTakeBack scrap car price update, we reported on signs of a small expected increase. However not only did prices climb throughout November, they surpassed all expectations, rising 13 percentage points above October levels.

Not only does this mean that the prices paid for old cars sold as scrap are 22% higher than this time last year, it's also another new high for 2016.

Though there have been signs that due to the strengthening of the pound, the prices being paid for scrap cars over the past couple of weeks have plateaued. As a result, the industry is on tenterhooks in case another sharp fall is just around the corner.
