If you’re looking to scrap your car in Essex, you’ve come to the right place!
From medieval market towns to modern commuter housing for greater London, Essex carries a long history of growth and progression. The county grew from isolated villages and farms to industrialised towns on the outskirts of London.
Much of Essex’s growth came in recent history, as London expanded and factories required more and more workers. Many of those workers followed the line of the Thames eastward, flowing into Essex like the river itself. Today, Essex includes holiday destinations as well as parts of greater London.

Local Essex Charities
Serving the communities of Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, Autism Anglia helps children with autism. It also provides support services for the parents and families of children diagnosed with autism. The charity has multiple regional offices, and has introduced innovative programs designed to help autistic people negotiate tough social situations.
Havens Hospices provides palliative care to all ages from a facility in Westcliff-on-Sea, as well as hospice-at-home care. The hospice has greatly expanded in scope since its founding, offering unique services like Little Havens, which cares for infants and children with life-limiting diseases.
A free helicopter emergency service for the population of Essex and Hertfordshire, the charity has flown over 20,000 missions since 1997. The charity’s operating costs run to over £6 million per year, supported entirely by charitable donations.
The centrepiece of Essex motoring history has to be the Ford plant at Dagenham. There were earlier car manufacturers in Essex, like the Bentall company, but the Ford plant at Dagenham became a primary employer in the region. Founded in 1931, the Dagenham site produced nearly 11 million cars over seven decades. In the early 2000s, car assembly at the plant ceased, but Ford still uses the facility to build engines. The Ford Dagenham plant has produced over 39 million engines in its history.

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?!
