    Below are some of the main factors that a scrap yard uses to estimate your price.

    • Age of the car (Newer cars are eligible for higher prices as they are worth more in the car market)
    • Condition of the car
    • Car Complete (Engine, Gearbox, Wheels, Interior etc.)
    • Alloy wheels
    • Weight of the car (Heavier cars are worth more in scrap as they have more metal on them than lighter cars)
