How do you work out the value of my car?

When you tell us what type of car you have and where it is, we compare the prices available at CarTakeBack branches in your area, to find you the best deal for your damaged or scrap car.

Our prices are tailored to your car, taking into account the value of scrap metal and any reusable parts, as well as its location.

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


If you still have questions, you can find all of the answers in the following categories:
