The Best Way to Get the Most Money for Your Scrap Car

Every year, more than half a million cars are scrapped in the UK alone. If your car happens to be one of them, you’ll want to make sure you get the best price possible for your scrap car before it’s recycled into new materials or parts. While it’s unlikely you’ll get anywhere close to the original value of your car when you buy it brand-new, there are ways to get more money than if you just brought it to an auto wrecking service and said take whatever you want and just give me cash. Here’s how.

Do some research?

There are three scrap car prices in Sweden:

  • 3skrotpriser (low)
  • Skrotbil (medium)
  • Skrotoch sålda bilar (high).

High scrap car prices are determined by rarity, where low prices are determined by how much repair is needed. The higher the price, the less repairs that need to be done before reselling. Low-priced cars can be sold as-is and will still sell.

Find a reputable buyer

Be sure you find a reputable buyer who offers good prices for your scrap car. 3skrotpriser offer a free valuation, so this is always a good place to start. They also have fair prices and reliable payment methods, so it’s easy to find out how much your scrap car is worth. If you’re looking for someone to take care of selling your scrap car in Stockholm, visit them online at or call their customer service line at + 45 70 60 50 86.


Now that you know how much your scrap car is worth, it’s time to negotiate. To get the best price, you need to make sure that your car is in good condition, and have a clear title. You should also have an idea of what you’re willing to accept as payment and what you think your car is worth. You can use 3skrotpriser or Skrotbil (both websites) to find out how much your scrap car is worth. If they can’t give you a quote on their site, they’ll likely be able to give you over the phone. Remember not to sell too cheaply because once it’s gone there won’t be another chance!

Get it in writing

Getting it in writing means that you will be able to make a formal contract with Skrotbil. This agreement should include:

  • The date of pickup
  • The condition of the car (broken or in one piece)
  • How much money Skrotbil will give you for your car
  • How long they have before they pick it up
  • What is included in the price, such as gas and oil, etc?
Check the fine print

Before you sell your scrap car, take a look at what’s in your contract. If it says that you’re only allowed to sell it back or trade it in, then you’ll need to reach out to the dealership where you originally got it from and see if they offer any other options. If not, check with another dealer. Be sure that when you get quotes from different places, each quote is based on the same conditions. For example, if one place says they’ll give us $500 but we have to tow our car there ourselves and another place offers $600 but will pay for our tow, take into consideration which option will be more convenient for us.
