1. Contact Give A Car
Fill in the form or call the office 020 0011 1664 - all they need is a couple of minutes to go through your details. Once they have your approval, they have a collection agent call you in order to arrange a convenient pick-up time.
2. Your car is picked up
A tow truck usually arrives within 1 to 3 days to pick up your car, though in a few rare cases it may take up to 10 days.
3. Your donation is made
Your car is sent to scrap or auction. Give A Car then donate all the proceeds, after administrative costs, to a charity of your choice. They send you a receipt for your donation, and so will the charity. Both of these receipts should arrive in 6 weeks.
How much can I raise?
Every car is different, but they all will create a valuable donation. Scrap car donations are based solely on the weight of the metal (so CD players/alloy wheels don't add to the donation). If your car is roadworthy, they may be able to raise much more by selling it at auction. Give A Car deal with hundreds of cars, so they know how to get the best value – often trade prices which are higher than private sales.
But is it really worth it?
YES. Every vehicle is worth something, and not just cars – Give A Car take vans, motorbikes and lorries as well. It’s an easy way to get rid of a problem and raise money for a good cause, and at no cost to you.
