How do we calculate car scrap values?

There are a few different ways to estimate the value of a scrap car. One method is multiplying the car's weight by the current scrap metal price per ton. However, this can be time-consuming and inaccurate as it requires you to know the exact weight of your car and doesn't take into account the make and model of the vehicle. That's why we recommend using our online car scrap value calculator, which considers the year, make, and model of your car to provide a more accurate estimate of its value.

What factors influence car scrap values?

Several factors can affect the value of a scrap car, including the current market value of scrap metal, the type of metal the car is made of, and the seller's location. Generally, scrap metal prices vary by state and can range from $200 to $300 per ton, with some variations depending on demand and supply. For example, the cost of scrap metal in California is typically higher than in Texas or New York. Additionally, the type of metal can also affect the price, with steel generally being cheaper at around $150 to $200 per ton and aluminium being more expensive at around $1,000 per ton. It's essential to research the current prices in your area and consider the type of metal your car is made of to get the best price when selling your scrap car.
