Despite Coronavirus lockdown measures in October and November we’re happy to report that scrap car prices have increased for the second consecutive month! The average value of a scrap car is up considerably, 14% compared to October and is up 32% compared to this time last year.
Scrap car prices in November reached the highest levels seen in 2020!
Last year December saw prices fall over the festive period, we may see the same in the run up to Christmas this year.
The value of your scrap car depends on the global demand for scrap metal, as well as the make, model, age, weight, condition, location of your car.
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. We’ve taken into account that cars come in all shapes and sizes, which has an effect on their scrap value, the prices 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.
The most common vehicle scrapped in November was, for the fourth consecutive month, the Ford Focus.
In November the average scrap price for a Ford Focus was €132, which has increased by 33% compared to October!
Though the top spot is still being held by the Ford Focus, November has seen a change to the others that make the top five list of cars being scrapped.
