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 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.
Local Featured Charities
Looking for a charity to support local to Sheffield? Look at the charities below for some inspiration or click here to see more.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent Charity providing a life-saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire.
We fly 365 days a year and since becoming operational in October 2000 we have carried over 6,500 patients. To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances maintained and in the air we need to raise £12,000 every single day – that’s equivalent to £4.4 million each year.
Without any direct government funding we rely solely on the generosity of individuals organisations across the region to enable the continuation of this vital service.
Cathedral Archer Project
CAP is a warm, welcome and safe place for homeless adults in Sheffield. We believe life should be fulfilling and enjoyable and that homelessness is none of these things.
At CAP we offer crisis support for example food, access to dental and medical care, showers and washing facilities, alongside running activities and offering volunteering opportunities so people can gain skills, motivation and self-esteem. We also offer help with addiction, benefits, housing, and jobs. Mental health and homelessness are very closely related so we also provide a counselor at the project.
Everyone’s journeys into homelessness differs, so we tailor our support to offer the best possible help to each person.
Saint Michael’s Hospice
Saint Michael’s believe that individuals and their families should be able to access high quality personalised care, irrespective of their age, illness, race or social status.
All Saint Michael’s services are provided free of charge to our patients and their families. It currently costs £5million each year to maintain services and without the generosity of our community, we wouldn’t be here to care for more than 2000 local people each year.
Your support will help us to continue to provide specialist care and support to a family near you living with terminal illness and bereavement.
Featured local charity
I have recently given two vehicles away through Giveacar; one was our own whose proceeds went to a charity in Zambia and the other was my late sister's car from which we raised over £100 for Breast Cancer Now.
On both occasions I found the system was simple and highly efficient and the staff all very friendly. From initial contact to having the vehicle taken away was easy and quick - less than a week for one of them!
Highly recommended - getting rid of an old car, letting someone else do the work and donating to your chosen charity - what's not to like?!
