If you take into account rising petrol prices, maintenance costs, the cost of the congestion charge and parking on top of that if you live in London, it might make more sense to scrap your old car than keep it running on its last legs. You may even end up saving money in the long run.
If you do decide to scrap your car, why not consider donating it? Giveacar will make the whole process as painless as possible as our partner Cartakeback organise for your car to be collected at a convenient time, at no cost to you. They also take care of all the documents so the DVLA are notified that the car is no longer in your possession. The money raised from the scrap metal is then donated to the charity of your choice.
This service is free of charge.
The advantage of Giveacar, as opposed to any other scrappage service, is that money raised goes to your chosen charity. We have over 200 charities and counting affiliated with us, and we are happy to suggest one for you if can’t think of one off the top of your head. End of life cars generally raise £40-£160. So far, we have raised a six-figure sum for charities all over the UK, from larger and well-known charities, such as Shelter, to smaller, more-local based ones, such as The Message Trust, which operates in Sharston, near Manchester.
