1. Contact Us
Fill in our form or call our office – all we need is a couple of minutes to go through your details. Once we have your approval, we will arrange for one of our collection agents to call and arrange a suitable time to collect your vehicle.
2. Your Vehicle is Picked Up
A flatbed truck will arrive to pick up your vehicle, usually within 1 week. If any issues arise we will be in touch over email and phone.
3. Your Donation is Made
Our aim is to raise as much money for your charity, so depending on the condition of your vehicle we will either send it to be recycled or attempt to sell it at auction. Because we are a not-for-profit with no shareholders or funding our running costs are covered by taking a service fee from the total proceeds raised, these are 25% on donations up to £150, and an additional 5% – if auctioned, which is subject to 5% VAT. We send you a receipt for your donation, and so will the charity. Both of these receipts should arrive within 6-8 weeks. Please note that auction house fees which include transportation, marketing and administration are deduced from the gross sale amount and are separate to the Giveacar service fee. This varies contractor to contractor and is dependent on where the vehicle is located within the country.
Auction Car Example:
Sale proceeds returned to Giveacar after auction house fees = £150, minus our service fee = £45 + VAT = £9. Charity Donation = £96.
How much can I raise?
Scrap car donations are based solely on the weight of the metal (so CD players/alloy wheels, batteries don’t add to the donation). If your car is roadworthy, we may be able to raise much more by selling it at auction. We deal with hundreds of cars every month, so we know how to get the best value. Please note: Scrap prices in the UK vary according to the market index.
But is it really worth it?
YES! We have nearly raised £3 million for charity and every vehicle is worth something. Giveacar provides an easy way for people to remove a car and raise money for a good cause, and at no cost to you. For examples of the good your old car could do, read what our charity partners say about Giveacar.
