Despite the upwards trend of scrap metal prices over the past few months, there has been a small drop in prices this October, seeing a 3% decrease on prices paid for scrap cars when comparing to September. The good news is that scrap car prices are well up on October 2017, with the average scrap car raising 62% more cash!

The prices paid for scrap cars depends on the demand of scrap metal from the steel industry, which is looking good at the moment, but with the dip we have seen, may continue the downward trend into summer. If you're looking to sell your scrap car, now is a great time to do it, as the prices are still close to the top prices paid in 2018.
