After an impressive rise in May, the prices paid for scrap cars has increased slightly in June, with a 2% rise compared to May. The prices may maintain as we move into July, as the global demand for scrap metal changes.

That said, the value of scrap cars is still a very healthy 22% higher than it was at this time last year, so now is a great time to scrap your old car to make sure you get maximum value from it!

Scrap Car Price Index June 2018 to June 2019

The CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index is updated monthly using the prices on offer for scrap cars at CarTakeBack recycling centres throughout Australia. 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.
