Get Rid of Your Old Caravan
At Giveacar we don’t just limit ourselves to cars, we often take scrap caravans as well. We can organise caravan removal nationwide and offer you an ethical way to get rid of your caravan. It’s fast, free and for charity. We collect your caravan free of charge and the proceeds raised are donated to a charity of your choice. Giveacar always put the charity first so will make sure to get the best price.
Contact us on 020 7736 4242 to find out if we would be able to take your scrap caravan. As a not-for-profit service, in the instances that the value of your caravan does not meet our minimum threshold we may be unable to accept your caravan.
If you’ve got a caravan you think is destined for the scrapyard we may still be able to help. The amount raised from your caravan will depend on a few factors. Firstly, the address from which it will need to be collected. The further the caravan is from one of our partners the more it will cost to collect and therefore the less it will raise. Also, the age, model and condition of your caravan will impact the value. Giveacar has operated for 10 years and arranged the collection and donation of over 35,000 vehicles. So you can be certain our team of experts and our partners will make sure to get the best value from your caravan.
Is My Scrap Caravan Eligible?
For us to ensure we are able to generate a donation to your nominated charity from the sale of your caravan we need to assess its condition. We require all caravans be CRIS registered. This allows us to run a security check to ensure we are able to sell you scrap caravan. Need to find the CRIS number on your caravan? Caravan’s built before 2016 will have the CRIS number etched onto the caravan’s side window and stamped onto the chassis. Caravan’s built after 2016 have the CRIS number displayed on a VIN-chip-sticker on the inside of the front window.
The Process to Scrap Your Caravan
The process to scrap your old caravan is easy. Follow the simple steps we have outlined below:
1. Firstly, get in touch with the team by calling us on 020 7736 4242 or fill out our online form and one of the team will give you a call to confirm some details and make sure we can arrange the collection of your caravan. We’ll also use this opportunity to make sure you are aware of the collection process, our fees and answer any questions you may have. We will ask you for:
- Caravan VIN number
- CRIS number
- Caravan make and model
- We may ask you for photos to check the condition of the caravan
2. Upon successful completion of the CRIS check, we will check with our partners they are able to arrange collection of your caravan and pass your details on to them. The collection agents will call you to arrange collection of your caravan. On the day of collection, they will contact you an hour before they are due to collect.
3. At Giveacar we put charity first, so we’ll work out how to maximise the value of your old caravan. Once the donation to your charity is complete you’ll receive a receipt from us confirming the total raised. We also ask the charity to send a thank you for your donation. Please note it takes 6-8 weeks for your charity to receive your donation.
If you have any questions give us a call and we will be happy to answer them. Alternatively, head over to our FAQ’s and see if your question has been answered there.
