Scrap Car Prices 2020

During the first half of 2020, scrap car prices were negatively impacted during the first lockdown period, which ended in June. When the restrictions eased in the summer, we have seen a steady scrap car price increase.

2020 Scrap Car Prices Compared to 2019

The average scrap car price paid by CBS in 2019 was £142, and despite the scrap metal price drop in March 2020, we have seen prices increase by 40%! 


The first quarter's general market trend sees a gradual price drop but usually starts to rise in March. In March 2020 we did see a huge price drop due to covid 19, the scrap price has rallied to a 2 year high, and we are now paying some of the best scrap car prices in the south.

We scrapped more Vauxhall vehicles in 2020 than any other manufacturer! Because they are such popular cars on the road, there's no surprise that we see so many being scrapped.
