                      Donate your Scrap Car to CVS!
        Every car has a value, whether it's roadworthy or only good for scrap
  Is a social enterprise that allows you to donate your old car,
                     just as you might donate
                 possessions to a charity shop.

        How Does Scrap Car Donation Work?
                   The process is very simple.

                     Arrange a convenient time to send round a tow truck.
 The vehicles are picked up by the largest vehicle manufacturer approved car recycling net-
  work in the UK. They will pick up any car, at no cost to you, and either sell it at a salvage
    auction, or dispose of it through an authorised treatment facility.    020 0011 1664
