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-
