You might be looking at getting money for scrap cars, but the chances are you weren’t aware that it’s now possible to donate your old scrap car to charity and have the money raised go to them instead.
It was only a short while ago that scrapping your car would cost you money, however as the need for scrap metals has changed so has the industry and now charities can benefit from you donating your car with Giveacar.
A popular misconception is that car scrapping is only for vehicles which have been in accidents, failed their MOT and are uneconomical to repair or non-runners. However, the reality is that there are numerous reasons you may consider scrapping as a way to dispose of your vehicle, and whether you’re looking to clear out some valuable parking space or upgrade your vehicle for a more environmentally-friendly model, scrapping your car can be a time-efficient and financially rewarding way to do it.
So How Does it Work?
Here at Giveacar, we are the car donation experts meaning we will be able to maximize your vehicle’s value for your chosen charity to benefit from. We will arrange to have your car collected from anywhere in the UK, free of charge and at a time that suits you. It’s simply a matter of submitting your details online or giving us a call on 0207 736 4242 and we’ll get everything sorted for you from start to finish.
Our administration fee is what keeps Giveacar afloat and raising money for UK charities. We take a 25% admin from your vehicles sale value if it raises up to £150, and anything over £150 we’ll then take a 30% admin fee. 5% VAT is also taken, but once that is deducted everything else goes to your charity. Just think, you’re not only helping your nominated charity, but you are also helping to keep Giveacar going, therefore your donation is helping raise money for thousands of other charities! You can find out more here.
We work closely with a number of Collection Partner’s who are all ATF registered and monitored by the Environment Agency. Our Collection Agents will call you to arrange the collection of your vehicle within two working days of receiving your confirmation from Giveacar. Collection itself usually happens within a week, however this might be sooner or later depending on your collection address. If you so wish, you can request your vehicle’s Certificate of Destruction as a means of closure by getting in touch with the Giveacar team.
So, who needs money for scrap cars when you can help a local charity continue the amazing work they do a day-to-day basis. Ready to donate? Have a look at our charities here and get donating!
