You are here on this page because you are looking to get top dollar for scrap cars. We often see our customers have very little information on what is the worth of a scrap car in Ontario. Don’t worry, we will help you understand the math. There are three factors determining the value of the scrap cars.
Scrap Metal Prices
As we know cars are manufactured using various kinds of metals like steel, aluminum, copper etc. When you recycle a car, we crush the car and send it to the recycling center. That’s where the metal is shredded and recycled completely. Prices of scrap metal are highly subjected to demand and supply of metal. If the demand of the metal is high and supply is low, you are going to get a good price. But if the demand is high, and supply is also at par with demand, you will get a decent price of the scrap car.
Scrap car prices are influenced by the weight of the car. Weight of the car simply means that you should have all the parts like wheels, engines etc. of the car. Car Recycles are looking to recycle as much as possible. Best practice is to sell a fully loaded car to a scrap car companies to get the best price for your vehicle. But that doesn’t mean you cannot scrap a car that is missing wheels, or a damaged car. You can still scrap damaged car and get top dollars.
