recycle your car

and raise money for Kidney Research


If you have an unwanted vehicle that you would like to recycle for auction or scrap, ‘GiveaCar’ will recycle it at no cost to you and they will donate 80% of the money raised to charity.  They will collect cars, vans, lorries and motorbikes.

If you would like to recycle your vehicle with the proceeds going directly to the South West Thames Kidney Fund, please click here.

In brief, this is how the scheme works:

  1. Contact:  GiveaCar online or by phone on 0207 736 4242.  A GiveaCar employee will take down your details.  They will then forward those details to their salvage partner.  A collection agent is assigned and calls you to arrange a convenient time for vehicle collection.
  2. Collection:   All vehicles are collected with 7 days of the initial enquiry with the vast majority being collected within 3 days.  All cars, including non-starters, can be collected and loaded onto the two trucks.
  3. Donation:  Depending on a vehicle’s state of repair, it will either be sold at auction or disposed of at an Authorised Treatment Facility.  GiveaCar receives the donation following the sale or disposal.  they will process the donation for their own records and then forward it, less administration costs, to your chosen charity.  You will be sent a receipt from both GiveaCar and the charity.
  4. More information:  GiveaCar makes sure that all necessary paperwork is done correctly.  If you have any questions on this or the process described above, please click here.
