Scrap Car Comparison 

Did you know that where you are in the UK plays a massive part in how much cash you can get for a scrap car?

There are many factors that affect this, but if you’re lucky enough to live in one of the top money areas, you’re going to be quid’s in! 

Top 10 Best Places to Scrap Your Car:

The above locations have numerous scrap car dealers who are all competing with each other. Competition usually means prices are better for customers, but not always, as some scrap car dealers won’t be as competitive when it comes to pricing.

For example, given its size, you would expect Birmingham to be a good place to sell your scrap car, but the market in Birmingham is not as competitive as in some smaller cities and towns such as Liverpool and Swindon. So, while Birmingham might have many scrap yards, there isn’t the same drive for competitive prices as in some other areas. 


It’s not just number of scrap dealers that affects prices though, as in some areas you’ll get a good price for your scrap car even if the number of local scrap dealers is low. All it takes is for two competing scrap dealers to try and outdo each other. The winner in this situation is always the customer who scores a higher price for their vehicle.  

The Least Competitive Places for Selling your Scrap Car

In more remote areas, such as the highlands of Scotland, you’re never going to get a top price for your scrap car. In fact, you might find that the costs involved in transportation in super rural areas mean that you struggle to sell your End of Life Vehicle at all. The cost of coming to collect your vehicle and transport it back to the scrap yard may mean that some dealers just won’t be interested. 


But, it isn’t just in remote locations where you won’t get as good a price for your scrap car as you’ll see from the above list. These are just some of the towns and cities that either have a relatively low number of registered Authorised Treatment Facilities for scrap cars, or just have an uncompetitive market.
