In June we saw the Coronavirus lockdown measures ease somewhat, though there’s still some impact to our day to day lives and our businesses. After the dramatic fall in the prices being paid for scrap cars in April and a further decrease in May, we’re happy to report that scrap car prices seem to be recovering slightly. Though we haven’t picked up to pre-lockdown prices, June has seen a welcome rise. This month scrap car prices climbed 24% higher than those in May, though June’s prices were 24% lower than those this time last year.
The CarTakeBack Customer Services Team are still safely able to help you scrap your car for the best price and to make arrangements for your car to be collected. Collections of scrap cars are continuing safely, following the Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene. Scrap car collections will only be carried out when it is safe to do so, for both our collection staff and for you.
About the CarTakeBack 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 Ireland. 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.
