What happens when you auction my car?

If there's enough life left in your old used car, then we may decide an auction will be the best way to get the maximum donation for your chosen charity.

It helps us to achieve a higher donation if you hand over any documents such as the registration certificate (V5C), service history and handbook, as well as any security codes and spare keys.

We'll take care of the valeting, valuation, sales particulars, storage and viewings by prospective buyers throughout the sales process. We'll also help you to complete the relevant section of your registration certificate (V5C) so that you're in the clear with DVLA.

To cover the costs, we simply take a low fixed fee from the final hammer price. There's nothing for you to pay and the charity gets the maximum value possible. Once we've transferred the payment to your chosen charity you'll get a written confirmation.
