Generally most vehicles which are severely damaged or over 10 years old fall into this category. The vehicle will be taken to an Authorised Treatment Facility who will dismantle the vehicle before recycling the parts and materials. Authorised Treatment Facilities typically recycle at least 95% of the car’s weight and, depending on the vehicle’s size, can raise around £100 for the charity of your choice.

Vehicles that may be too good to scrap can be bought by specialist buyers as salvage. These vehicles will be broken down and used for reusable parts. This unlocks a higher value for your vehicle and therefore a higher donation amount for the charity of choice as after the parts have been recovered, the rest of the car generally tends to be scrapped. The average donation for a vehicle sold to a specialist buyer as salvage would award your charity of choice around £400. Of course prices can vary based on age and condition of the vehicle. Newer vehicles will achieve significantly higher values.

Our nationwide network of authorised treatment facilities and reputable buyers means that you are able to obtain quotes for your vehicle instantly. Once you have accepted the quote for your vehicle the buyer will contact you to arrange collection, free of charge, on a date which is most suitable for you. You will then have the option to donate some, or all, of your funds to charity. Each month we have a featured charity however, you can donate to any of the charities listed below.

Many people strive to donate more to charity, but finding spare cash can be difficult. With our charitable scheme this can be the ideal moment to dispose of your old car and feel good about donating at the same time, as unlike other charity schemes we enable you to donate as much, or as little, as you like to your chosen charity.
