What is Charity Car?

Charity Car helps UK registered charities by providing a service for the public to raise funds by donating their car. When a car is donated, it is assessed and a plan is made to get the maximum donation for the owner's chosen cause.

If the car has some life left in it, it will be prepared for auction, and sold to the highest bidder, with proceeds going to the charity. If the car is ready to be scrapped, Charity Car makes sure that the car is dismantled and recycled in the most environmentally friendly manner, any reusable parts taken out and resold, and the charity will receive 100% of the market value.
