How do you work out the value of my car?

When you tell us your car's registration and your location, we compare the scrap prices available at CarTakeBack scrap car recycling centres in your area, to find you the best deal for your car.

Our prices are tailored to your car, taking into account the value of scrap metal and any re-usable parts, as well as its location. You'll be pleased to know that CarTakeBack recycling centres compete with each other to offer the best price. 

When we give you an instant quote, we make a few assumptions about your car.
