Scrap Car Price Update November 2020

Posted on 3rd Dec 2020 by Rebecca Currier Posted in: Latest News

November didn’t see an increase to the average scrap car price. However, after 5 consecutive months of increases we’ve seen prices maintain, so it’s not bad news. Matching October prices means that the November scrap car prices are still the highest we’ve seen this year! Prices are also up by 23%, compared to this time last year.

Now is an ideal time to sell your car for scrap and get some cash in your bank ahead of Christmas! Prices may maintain into next month, but with uncertain times still facing us all due to the pandemic, prices could fall as we head into summer.

November Average Scrap Car Price $353

The value of your scrap car is dependent on various factors, including the global demand for scrap metal, as well as the make, model, age, weight, condition and location of your car.
