What will happen to my car?

We'll decide on the best route for your old car, so that your chosen charity gets the maximum donation that we can generate. If your car has reached the end of the road it will be recycled, or in some cases repaired and re-used, at one of our branches, which are all car recycling centres. Or if there's significant life left in your old car, we'll raise a higher value through auction.

We always try to maximise your donation for our charity partners, but if you think your vehicle holds significant value you can speak to our customer services department before donating to check you're happy with our assessment of its potential value.


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