June Average Scrap Car Price $561

After a dip of less than 1% in May, average scrap car prices have bounced back in June – increasing by 1.5% – that’s an extra $8 in the bank for those who scrapped a car in June. This increase is a positive sign of prices recovering from the lowest levels seen this year, $551. Despite the increase the cost of living and global demand for scrap metal is an ongoing contributing factor to the current value of cars.

Your specific car could be worth more than the average scrap price! There are many factors that go in to valuing a scrap car, such as the demand for metal and reusable car parts, as well as the make, model, age, weight, condition, and even the location of your car.
