Scrapping a car is an emotional decision, but it might be worth your while if you have the right information. The average payment for scrapped vehicles varies from £150-£600 depending on several factors such as condition age and engine size.
The scrap metal market is always changing, which means you need to be aware of this when scrapping car.
Weight is a major deciding factor when it comes to the value of a scrap car. You’re being paid for the recycled metals of your vehicle so this weight will play a big role in determining the payment you receive.
The worth of your car is not a fixed figure. The metals used in its construction each have their own value and like other resources, these prices change based on both supply-demand balances as well changes to currency values throughout the world market.
Because of this fluctuation, a fixed price per ton for your scrap car won’t be advertised on an ATF’s website. Contacting them directly with the details of your vehicle is the best approach, and you should get quotes to compare. Before accepting, ensure you receive a guaranteed price from your chosen scrap dealer so no deductions can be made later.
You might have an idea of selling some car parts individually for scrap, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the price you'll receive on your vehicle will be affected. Scrap dealers typically deduct money from payments based off what's missing from the car.
