That makes them the highest scrap car prices we’ve seen this year! Plus prices are 34% higher than this time last year. Brilliant news if it’s time for you to scrap your car.

The best prices for scrap cars that we’ve seen this year might continue into November, though the prices for scrap cars are influenced by the scrap metal demand across the globe and could drop at any time. Make the most of these top scrap car prices and sell your car with CarTakeBack!

About CarTakeBack’s 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.
