After a record month in September, this month we've seen scrap car prices fall slightly. September saw the highest prices on offer for scrap cars so far this year. October has seen prices fall by 2%. But it's not all doom and gloom this Halloween! Prices haven't dropped too considerably, October's prices are still a whopping 97% higher than they were at this time last year and are still the second highest prices we've seen all year!

Scrap metal prices for cars do fluctuate. So whilst the current prices could sustain into next month, we can never be certain. Make the most of the second highest prices we've seen this year and sell your scrap car now.
