The average price paid for a scrap car fell slightly in September, by just 1%. Though month on month prices took a minor hit, September’s prices are considerably higher than those last year, up by 57% compared to September 2021, which makes prices €105 higher!
The average value of a scrap car is influenced by factors such as, the global demand for scrap metals, any reusable parts, plus the make, model, age, weight, condition, and even location of your car.
