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!
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.
