How To Scrap a Motorbike
Have you thought how can I scrap my motorbike? We are here to help. At Giveacar we aren’t just about cars. We arrange the donation of all types of vehicles to charity. Giveacar is a not-for-profit that turns your scrap motorbike into a donation for any UK charity. Scrapping your motorbike can often raise a large sum for charity.
If your scrap bike has seen better days, is an MOT failure, or perhaps you just don’t have the time to ride it anymore, Giveacar can offer you a simple, free, nationwide, and ethical way of getting rid of it.
Donate your scrap motorbike, fill out our online donation form or call us on 0207 736 4242.
The Process of Scrapping My Motorbike
Just like with our cars, your scrap motorbike will be collected free of charge and at a time to suit you. Once you have arranged to donate your bike with us we will pass your details on to our auction partners, who will organise the collection with you. Due to the low value of scrapping motorbikes, we only auction them to maximise the value of the donation. Please note if your motorcycle doesn’t meet our minimum standards we may not be able to arrange its donation.
Scrapping your motorcycle couldn’t be easier. Just follow the quick and easy steps below,
1. Firstly, get in touch with the team by calling us on 0207 736 4242 or fill out our online form and one of the team will give you a call to confirm some final details. We’ll also use this opportunity to make sure you are aware of the collection process, our fees, and your responsibility to inform the DVLA.
2. Our collection agents will call you to arrange collection of your motorcycle. If you have the motorbike’s V5C (logbook) you need to complete the section related to selling or transferring a vehicle to the motor trade. This is section 4, or section 9 in older versions of the V5C. Ensure you keep a hold of this section to notify the DLVA but give the rest of the logbook (V5C) to the collection agent.
3. At Giveacar we put charity first, so depending on the condition of your motorbike we may be able to auction it instead of scrapping. You’ll receive a receipt from Giveacar once the donation is made. We also ask the charity to send a letter of thanks to you. Please note it takes 6-8 weeks for your charity to receive your donation from when the motorbike is sold.

When Will My Motorbike Be Collected
Once you receive your confirmation email from Giveacar, the collection partner will call you within 48 hours to arrange a suitable time to collect your bike. We aim to collect within seven working days. An exact time will be arranged directly between you and our collection partner. If you need your vehicle collected earlier or later than this, let us know and we will do our best to help.
We arrange scrap collection all over the UK. And for free! Take a look below at some of the locations that we collect from:
What Happens When My Bike Is Collected
If you have the vehicle’s V5C (logbook) you need to complete the section related to selling or transferring a vehicle to the motor trade. This is section 4, or section 9 in older versions of the V5C. Ensure you keep a hold of this section to notify the DLVA but give the rest of the logbook (V5C) to the collection agent.
It is your responsibility to inform the DVLA that you are no longer the registered keeper. If you have any questions, you can always call us on 020 7736 4242 and we can help answer any questions.

Giveacar is the only independent car donation company in the UK, and therefore our admin fee is our sole means of income. For donations up to £150 we charge a 25% admin fee. Donations over £150 have an additional 5% charge. Please note that our admin fee is also subject to VAT. Once that’s done everything else goes to your nominated charity.
Giveacar operates its collection scheme nation-wide. We are proud to work closely with a number of Authorise Treatment Facilities (ATF) who collect on our behalf. We also have trusted auction partners if we think your motorbike would raise more for charity at auction. Your confirmation email will detail the specific organisation that we have assigned to your collection. However, a smaller subcontractor may be responsible for the actual collection.
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.
