Scrap Car Comparison’s charitable ‘Donate A Car’ scheme is available nationwide and makes it easy to dispose of your vehicle, whilst simultaneously helping improve the quality of life for others through your favourite charities.

There are a variety of reasons you may consider selling your car, but whether you’re downsizing to reduce carbon emissions, your car is damaged or broken, you’re moving abroad or you just don’t need your vehicle anymore, Scrap Car Comparison can make the process hassle-free by collecting your vehicle free of charge and donating the proceeds to a charity of your choice.

How to donate a car iconHow To Donate Your Car.

Your first step is to contact us! You can either fill in the above form with your vehicle details or call us on 03333 449950. We will then put your vehicle’s details through our expansive database of buyers to find you the best price for your vehicle.

Cars that are sold through Scrap Car Comparison typically fall into two different categories. The category in which it falls into will determine both the price you are quoted, and what will happen to your vehicle next.

Scrap Vehicles

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.

Salvage Vehicles

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.
