The Scrivener Trust - helping people in need

How it works

1. Contact Give a Car

Visit GiveaCar.co.uk and complete their donation form.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 3 days to pick up your car, though in a few rare cases it may take up to 10 days. If you have chosen to donate half the value of your scrap car, a cheque will be given to you on the day by our salvage partner.

3. Your donation is made

Your car is sent to scrap or auction. GiveaCar 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. If you have chosen to donate half the value of your auction car, your receipt letter will also contain a cheque for half the donation amount.

4. 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, GiveaCar may be able to raise much more by selling it at auction. They deal with hundreds of carsand know how to get the best value – often trade prices which are higher than private sales.

5. It's not just cars

They take ride-on lawnmowers, farm machinery, 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.
