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.

Scrap Car Price Update April 2020

The CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index is updated monthly using the prices on offer for scrap cars at CarTakeBack recycling centres throughout Ireland. It is intended to give an indication of the movement in the price from one month to another, with the prices being shown as a percentage. Cars come in all shapes and sizes which has an effect on their scrap value, so prices have been adjusted to show what the average car would be worth.
