Donating to a charity you feel passionate about is a fantastic thing to do, and in more ways than one. Not only will your donation go towards helping others, you also gain the positive affirmation of knowing you’ve contributed to a cause that’s important to you, which can do wonders for your sense of wellbeing.
Many of us regularly donate money to our favourite charities for just these reasons. But did you know that you can also scrap your car and donate it to charity? The proceeds of scrapping any car, whether it runs or not, can be donated to charity through our Donate a Car scheme. When you scrap your vehicle with us, via our network of scrap and salvage buyers, we offer an amazing and unique way for you to donate some, or all of the value to a charity of your choice.
Here are five amazing reasons to donate a car through Scrap Car Comparison.
You can choose which charity to support
We’ve supported dozens of fantastic charities and charitable foundations over the years through our Donate a Car scheme. We feature a new charity every month in order to showcase as many worthy causes as possible, but the best news is that you can choose to support any of our charity partners whenever you decide to donate your car.
Take a look at the list of our current charity partners – we’ve made every effort to ensure there are causes of all kinds represented so you’re sure to find one that’s meaningful to you.
You’ll be helping the environment
Did you know that scrapping a car is basically the same as recycling it? When a car is scrapped, many of the parts – such as the steel and zinc bodywork, rubber tyres and glass windows – can be recycled and reused to make new items, from new cars to racetrack roadbeds, and even wedding rings! In fact, as much as 95% of a scrap car will be recycled and given a new lease of life.
So, donating a car to a scrap buyer not only generates new funds for a charity of your choice, but also keeps that car from landfill in a safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
Your scrap car will be picked up for free
At Scrap Car Comparison, we want to make sure our scrap car service is as simple and convenient for our customers as possible. That’s why, once we have provided the best quote for your scrap car and you have decided to go ahead, your chosen buyer will get in touch with you to arrange a no-contact, free of charge collection of your vehicle.
