Companies that buy scrap cars will take at least some basic criteria into consideration before deciding how much the car is worth. For example, the scrap value of a small city car is likely to be less than that of a large 4x4 due to there being less usable metal on the vehicle. Also, the location of the buyer may impact the value of your car due to increased overheads depending on where the nearest port is located.
