We take the hassle out of getting rid of your car and we’ll pass the value to your chosen charity. You don’t have to pay a penny! And with branches across the UK and car collection available, donating your car really is easy! Plus, we have a lovely customer services team who are happy to help you every step of the way.

Some of our happy customer reviews

5/5 stars based on service ratings from our customers

Donated to Pump Aid

CharityCar was excellent from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending them and I feel great about having donated my car in this way. Thank you!

- Catherine Paver

Donated to Oxfam

This car was our family mainstay for more than a decade. It got old, tatty and saggy, but it never once broke down. It kept supporting us and helping us as a family. It didn't owe us anything at all. That's why donating it was an obvious thing to do at the end of its working life.

- Bill in Edinburgh

Donated to Alder Hey

I am really pleased to have raised some money for Alder Hey by donating my old car. My son had a short stay with them when he was a baby and its nice to give something back. The process of donating the car was super easy and was done quickly from applying! I am glad that I found this service and would certainly recommend.

- Laura

Donated to CRISIS

I was amazed at how much my old Clio raised for charity - it was more than I expected! And Charity car was the only car donation company I found that gives 100% to charity, which made me feel much better about letting go of a car that I was very emotionally attached to.

- Nat

Donated to Alder Hey

I would encourage anyone to donate a vehicle through Charity Car - everything about the process was quick and efficient - a rarity these days! Thank you!

- Ellen Rees

Donated to Perennial

My beloved Vera Volkswagen, I'm eventually letting her go after 18 years! 😢 My god so sad.. She was mine and Maurice's car. I've donated her through Charity Car to Perennial, the charity that helped us all through his illness and after he'd passed away 💚
