How do you work out the value of my car?

Firstly we'll decide on the best route for your old car, depending on your car's age and condition to get the maximum donation for your charity.

If your car has reached the end of the road it will be recycled at one of our recycling centres.

Or if there's enough life left in your car, we'll raise the maximum value through auction.

We'll use your registration to find out the type of car you have, together with your postcode to find its location, so that we can find the highest price for your car.

We may also ask you some questions about your car's condition. If you're unable to answer any questions, we may make some assumptions. Your answers and our assumptions will be shown to you when you donate your car.
Your car must meet certain minimum requirements.

f you'd like to know more and find out how much we think your car will be worth, please get in touch and we'll be happy to let you know the likely donation your charity will receive.


If you still have questions, you can find all of the answers in the following categories:
