Today numerous car donation websites are offering to collect any car or vehicle anywhere in the UK, regardless of model and condition, donors can choose a charity of their choice.
Some donation websites tend to focus on one particular charity. For example Giveacar has mainly supported Cancer Research UK, which has received over £60,000 from the group since it launched in January 2010.
Giveacar is now challenging the public to part with their old and/or useless cars, in order to highlight the importance of recycling items. This includes motor vehicles along with all the numerous small electric items which are the main focus of Recycle Week.
The act of car donation has become a well known and very popular activity in recent years.
Its advantages,allows motorists to avoid much of the hassle of trying to sell their car while also giving to charity at the same time, however usually not all of the money donated goes to the charity.
It is also possible for people to gain a tax deduction from car donations (usually in the US).
Other reasons car donations are popular is because vehicles can be taken regardless of condition and other factors such as emission ratings. Many of the non profit organisations which have been set up to receive donations also offer to collect the cars from people’s homes.
Charity groups like Giveacar will be keen to use events like Recycle Week, which runs from 20-26 June, to promote the business which they operate.
