Good news as we move out of November and into the festive season! We've had a good month, with the prices paid for scrap cars increasing by 6% in November compared to October! That makes the value of scrap cars an impressive 18% higher than they were in November last year.

November saw a sharp rise in the value of scrap cars in Ireland, with the average price for a scrap car is still high, if you're looking to scrap your car and get the best value out of it, now is the time to do it!

Scrap Car Price Index November 2018 to November 2019

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.
