April has seen uncertain times as Coronavirus lockdown measures impact our lives. After a steady increase throughout the start of the year, this month we saw an expected, though quite dramatic, drop in the prices being paid for scrap cars. Scrap car prices in April were down 31% compared to the prices last month, the biggest drop we've seen. Prices were 17% lower than those seen this time last year.

The CarTakeBack Customer Services Team are safely working from home and are able to make arrangements for you to scrap your car. Our drop-off service remains suspended, however collections are continuing, following the Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene. Collections will only be carried out when it is safe to do so, for both our staff and for you.

Further details of our guidance in relation to Coronavirus can be found here >
