The Process To Scrap Your Car
Scrapping your car couldn’t be easier. Just follow the quick and easy steps below,
1. Firstly, get in touch with the team 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 about your scrap car. We’ll also use this opportunity to make sure you are aware of the scrap car collection process, our fees, and your responsibility to inform the DVLA.
2. Our collection agents will call you to arrange the collection of your car. 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.
3. At Giveacar we put charity first. Depending on the condition of your scrap car we may auction it instead of scrapping. We will inform you of which option we’ll take whilst we have you on the phone! If your car is destined for the scrapyard, we only use Authorised Treatment Facilities. If you would like a copy of the Certificate of Destruction, please get in touch with the team and we’ll be happy to help. 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 car is sold.
Scrap your car and do some good at the same time, call us on 0207 736 4242 or fill out our donation form.
How it works:
Tell us about your unwanted car or motorbike. We'll arrange to collect it for free.
Depending on its condition, your vehicle will either be auctioned or scrapped.
We'll donate the proceeds to your chosen charity and send you a receipt.

A Life for a Cure — Ryan Bresnahan’s Meningitis Appeal
Dedicated to the memory of Ryan Bresnahan, this Bristol-based charity is devoted to understanding and treating meningitis, particularly in young adults. Ryan died suddenly of the disease in March 2010; since then, the entirely-voluntary charity has raised over 500,000 pounds to help fund treatments and research improved vaccines.
The mental health of young people is OTR’s major concern. The charity runs helplines and online resources as well as numerous “hubs” across Bristol and Gloucestershire, aimed at encouraging young people to seek help for a variety of mental illnesses.
Featured local charity
Had been putting off finding a home for my unused motorbike but a move forced the issue. It wasn't worth a fortune but deserved better than the local scrap yard so tried Giveacar.
They were very helpful and efficient and within a few minutes arrangements were being made. I live in quite a rural area so was impressed that within a couple of days the bike had been collected by a professional recovery service.
Giveacar then provided a receipt to say £120 had been forwarded to my nominated charity. Saved me a lot of time and trouble so everyone's a winner.
Thank you Giveacar.
