Good news... you can now dispose of cars for free and raise money for charities such
as the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS). How? Courtesy of Giveacar.co.uk.
Step one is to provide this non-profit scheme with information such as your vehicle's
manufacturer/registration mark, and your contact details. This is also the point to select
your favoured charity. All information can be provided either online or via the telephone.
Details are then passed to a salvage parter who will contact you to arrange collection. It is
probable the vehicle will be removed within one to three days, but it occasionally takes ten.
The car could then be sold for scrap. If so, its value will be based on the weight of its
metal. Alternatively, it might be sold at auction if it is roadworthy. Such vehicles tend to
raise more money than auction lots to contribute to the scheme's £800,000 total. You
can choose to donate either your vehicle's entire value or 50%, minus costs. Receipts
are issued by both Giveacar.co.uk and the beneficiary. You can also contribute ride-on
mowers, farm machinery, vans, motorcycles, and lorries. This is clearly a convenient way
to dispose of cars for free and raise money for charities such as the National Rheumatoid
Arthritis Society. This supports the 700,0000 sufferers in the UK by providing information
that facilitates self-help, and by raising the condition's profile. What better use for your car?
