Have a question about Giveacar? Hopefully you'll find the answer below. If not, please contact us.
Giveacar was the first service of its kind in the UK. It was created by Tom Chance when he graduated from Nottingham University in 2009. Giveacar is now run by a team of four, who are passionate about promoting the idea of car donation, reducing the environmental impact of end-of-life vehicles and raising money for our affiliated charities.
Yes. Our independence has always been important to us. Giveacar is not part of a larger group. It is not tied to any commercial operation, to any scrap dealers or recycling firms. It is also not owned by or affiliated to any particular charities. We encourage you to make your own choice of the charity you want to support.
We are based in Fulham, South-West London. You can find our office address on our contact page. Please note that we can collect vehicles throughout the UK.
