Giveacar’s partnered Authorised Treatment Facilities, Cartakeback and Raw2k are reputable scrap yards that organise the collection and recycling of scrap cars. After you’ve given us a ring, you’ll receive a call from them in the proceeding four hours to organise the most convenient time for your car to be collected – they can even do collections on Saturday so you won’t need to be disturbed at work.
They will issue you with a Notification of Destruction when your car arrives on site. As a result you are no longer lumbered with responsibility towards it.
The amount the scrap metal in your car is worth depends on regional variations, with cars in the North West doing extremely well. Donated cars often get in the region of £40 and £160, which can hugely benefit chosen charities.
We have also formed a partnership with the car salvage auction specialists, Bluecycle, which are brought in when we feel that cars are worth that little bit more, and could reach anything up to a few hundred pounds at auction. We tend to find that any car that has a T registration number plate or later reach the best prices. The whole Giveacar team watches the online auctions with interest, hoping we get the best prices for our affiliated charities.
