Scrap Car Price Update July 2020

Posted on 30th Jul 2020 by Rebecca Currier Posted in: Latest News

We’re still seeing the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on our day to day lives and our businesses. After the severe drop to the prices being paid for scrap cars in April, and a further decrease in May, June saw prices recover somewhat. However July has seen a slight drop to scrap car prices, though not to the lowest levels as in April and May. This month scrap car prices are just 3% lower than those in June, and July prices were, as last month, 24% lower than those this time last year.

The CarTakeBack Customer Services Team are still safely able to help you scrap your car for the best price and to make arrangements for your car to be collected. Collections of scrap cars are continuing safely, following the Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene. Scrap car collections will only be carried out when it is safe to do so, for both our collection staff and for you.

About the CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index

The CarTakeBack Scrap Car Price Index is a rolling monthly index covering the last 13 months. It’s updated monthly using the prices paid for scrap cars at CarTakeBack recycling centres throughout the UK. We’ve taken into account that cars come in all shapes and sizes, which has an effect on their scrap value, the prices show what the average car would be worth. This means that the index gives a great indication of the movement in the value of scrap cars from one month to another.
