Scrap your van with Givecar
The process to scrap a van isn’t too different from scrapping a car. We’ve made everything easy for you and with free nationwide collection! And the best part, the value we receive for your scrap van will go to charity. In order for us to be able to scrap your van, we require a few details about yourself and your vehicle.
We’ll ask you for the vehicle registration, and then a few further questions about its condition to work out whether it is best to scrap or auction your van to maximise the donation to charity. No matter the condition of the van we are happy to arrange collection and donate it to charity.
Just fill out our form here or call us on 020 7736 4242.
Quick, Easy & Free
Organising to scrap a van on your own can be a complicated process; you have to find an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) near you, fill out the correct paperwork, and then find a way to deliver the van to the correct location. Then there’s always the pressure to make sure you select the right scrapyard, find out who will give you the best value and also fully recycle your old van correctly. The decision doesn’t have to be a complicated one. With Giveacar collection is quick, easy and free.
After chatting with a member of the team who will take down some details you will receive your confirmation email from Giveacar. We will pass your details to our collection agents who will call you to arrange collection at a time that suits you. We aim for collection within a week but please let us know if you need it sooner and we will do our best to arrange that for you.
You’ll be glad to hear that the process for scrapping a van isn’t all that different from the process of scrapping a car which means Giveacar is the place for you.
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.
Your Van is Collected
2. Our collection agents will call you to arrange collection. On the day of collection, they will contact you an hour before they are due to collect. Make sure to ask them to sign your Section 9 of the V5C, or Section 4 on newer V5C’s, with their Business Name and Business Address and then keep a hold of this section but give the rest of the V5C to the agent.
Your Donation is Made
3. At Giveacar we put Charity First, so depending on the condition of your van we may be able to auction it instead of scrapping. We will inform you of which option we’ll take whilst we have you on the phone! If your van is destined for the scrapyard and 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 and from your charity once the donation is made. Please note it takes 6-8 weeks for your charity to receive your donation from when the vehicle is sold.
Giveacar charges a small admin fee, however, this comes from your donation and is not a charge to yourself. For donations up to £150 we charge a 25% admin fee, and on donations over £150 we then charge an additional 5%. Please also note VAT at 5% is also deducted, once that’s done everything else goes to your nominated charity.

Giveacar proudly works alongside scrap sites that are all ATF registered and are therefore monitored by the Environment Agency. This means your van will be scrapped in accordance with the law and with all the proper paperwork produced.
