What the media are saying about Giveacar

Roadworthy Cause

Last week, I donated my car to charity. Who knew you could do that? It was an old Mini that had cost me £625 the month after I passed my test, and it had limped on between MOTs ever since. Hunting around for somebody just to take it away, I came across Giveacar. They scrap your car and donate the proceeds to charity. If you’ve got an old car that’s about to die, use them. What a great idea.
