1. Contact Us
Fill in our online donation form or call us on 020 7736 4242. Once we have confirmed your details, we will organise for one of our collection partners to call you. They will arrange a suitable time with you to collect your vehicle.
We aim to have your vehicle collected within seven working days. On the day of collection, the collection agent will call you an hour before to notify you they are on their way and confirm the vehicle is ready to be picked up. Please include the vehicle service history, previous MOT’s and any relevant paperwork with the car if you have these in your possession, as this can increase the value for the donation.
Our aim is to raise as much money for your charity, from your vehicle. Depending on its condition your vehicle will either be scrapped or auctioned. Vehicles that raise up to £249 will have a 25% admin fee applied. Vehicles with a value of £250 and over will have a 30% admin fee applied. Please note, our admin fee is subject to VAT. Once that’s done everything else goes to your nominated charity. Giveacar is the only independent car donation company in the UK, and therefore our admin fee is our sole means of income.
Please allow 6-8 weeks for payments to be processed. Once the charity has received your donation you will be provided with a receipt notifying you of the amount raised. We do ask for charities to write a letter of thanks for your donation, however we are not able to monitor this.
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.
We have nearly raised over £3.5 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. Take a look at all the charities we work with here.
