What are the minimum requirements to donate my car?

When you donate your car, it will be based on the following minimum requirements:

  • you are able to provide photographic ID and proof of address;
  • your car is free of all finance charges, such as a hire purchase or loan agreement;
  • your car is free from any additional waste, such as litter, refuse or rubbish;
  • your car is powered only by a single petrol or diesel internal combustion engine and does not have an electric or hybrid powertrain;
  • your car (or light van) has no more than 9 seats; and
  • your car is accessible (in the case of a collection) meaning that it is parked on solid ground with inflated tyres, so that it can be safely winched onto a recovery vehicle.

If any of the above criteria are not true, we may not be able to accept your car for donation. You'll be given the opportunity to provide further details.
