CarTakeBack scrap car price update June 2022 f reThe start of the summer saw the average price for a scrap car maintain at the value seen in May with ATF network CarTakeBack. As prices level out in June they’re still the highest seen, with prices well above those during 2021.

Scrap car prices were up by a decent 38% compared to June last year. In these uncertain times, with supply chains still impacting car manufacturing, and the demand for scrap metal fluctuating, it’s likely that prices will maintain or even drop slightly in July. So now is a great time to scrap your car and get some extra cash in the bank while prices are on top.

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. The prices are shown as a percentage, using the first month as the base price.

We’ve taken into account that cars come in all shapes and sizes, which has an effect on their scrap value, by adjusting the prices to 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.
