LONDON, ENGLAND, April 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Giveacar.co.uk is a website with a unique concept. Upon visiting people are encouraged to give their old car for scrap rather than have it sitting in front of their house unused for ages. The unusual thing about the website that makes so many people donate their cars is that 75% of the value of the sale value of each car will be donated to charity.
Giveacar is based in England and it offers people a free fast collection of any car nationwide. This is another reason why people make the hard decision to give their car for scrap - they don't have to do anything.
The charity program offers people two choices - they can either keep half the profits from their old car and give the other half to charity or donate the car's entire value. The company has managed to raise over 1 million pounds for charity so far.
However, scrapping is not the only way. There is another way your car can turn into money. Scrapping cars that are still roadworthy is just pointless. If your car is still good for driving, Giveacar can sell it for you at an auction, often at a higher price than you would get if you were to sell it privately.
People who have other vehicles can also donate them. Giveacar will gladly accept motorbikes, ride-on lawnmowers, vans and more. It is an easy solution to the problem of getting rid of your vehicle.
The website is easy to use. The first thing you need to do is fill out a short form or call the company. After that your car will go to scrap or auction. Then the profits will go to a charity of your choice and you will receive a thank you letter.
Users can choose from over 500 different charities to find the one they want to donate to. There is also an option for registering your own charity. All you have to do is quickly fill out a form. You can also see testimonials from other charities if you have doubts. It is important to note that it has to be registered with the Charity Commission for your region.
The company's media coverage includes The Guardian, The Times, The Sunday Telegraph and many more. Giveacar's fast growing popularity helps people discover this stress-free way of scrapping old cars and making a donation.
At the website people can find a list of the scrap yards used by the company, the used car dealers as well as a full list of all the charities registered for the program. People can also easily locate the charities near their location so they can visit and learn more about them.
Giveacar offers an innovative solution to not one but three problems - getting rid of an old car, realizing a profit from it and donating to a charity. Now people can do all three of those things in a matter of minutes.
Launched in January 2010, Giveacar was the first service of its kind in the UK and allows charities to tap into a brand new source of funds. At the same time it gives car owners a simple way to get rid of their unwanted cars and put them to good use, raising money for their favourite charities.
