Scrap Car Price Update June 2024

Posted on 3rd Jul 2024 by Rebecca Currier Posted in: Latest News

June Average Scrap Car Price €259

As we reach the halfway point of the year, the average price paid for a scrap car in Ireland fell by just €3, or 0.8%, in June. The latest month on month decline sees scrap car prices at the lowest level this year. The continued reduction in the global demand for scrap metal and the cost of living crisis, remain contributing factors to the value of a scrap car.

Despite the reduction to the average scrap car price, your car could be worth more. Various factors contribute to the value of a scrap car, including, the demand for metal and reusable car parts, plus the make, model, age, weight, condition, and even your location.
