Good news as we move into the Festive Season! We've had a bumper month, with the prices paid for scrap cars increasing 11% in November! That makes the value of scrap cars an impressive 39% higher than they were this time last year.

The rise in prices in November was unexpected, so they may level out, dip more as we move into December. So if you're thinking about scrapping your car, now is a great time to do it whilst prices are good. And it'll get you a little extra cash for Christmas, too!

Scrap Car Price Index November 2018 to November 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.
