Funding for UK charities

According to insurance company studies – Kent roads are some of the most dangerous in the UK, with serious accident numbers increasing 18% in recent years. Despite poor regional road safety, Canterbury roads are actually getting safer – with accident numbers dropping from 200 road traffic collisions annually 10 years ago – to just 170 last year. 

Whether your car has been damaged in an accident like this – or is just no longer fit to be driven as a result of wear and tear; we can turn it into incredible opportunities for UK charities and good causes.

If you use our service to get a great price when you scrap your car in Canterbury today, you help us to contribute a significant proportion of our turnover to social value programmes and community projects around the country.

Proving that the motor industry can work for real people

Our unique way of working will see your scrap vehicle turned into funding for social value projects

Although cars are our passion, it's actually social value initiatives and community charity work that's at the heart of what we do.

After helping you to find a great price from a scrap car yard or vehicle recycler in Canterbury, a portion of the funds that your car helps us to generate will mean we can provide financial backing for a number of important causes, including:

  • HMP Academies: Helping to reduce reoffending rates
  • Supported living services: Reducing dependency on social housing
  • Food redistribution networks: Creating meals for those experiencing poverty

While these initiatives have a direct impact on the people who use them, the benefits are often felt much more widely. The charity projects we support have been proved to ease the huge demands put on taxpayer-funded services - including the police, local healthcare, the courts, offender management services – and many more.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

You can help us make a difference

Effective recycling of cars isn't just a positive thing for the environment – it can have a life-changing impact on real people in local communities.

Frequently asked questions

We know that people have lots of questions about scrapping cars – so we’ve covered some answers to common queries here.

The scrap value of any vehicle is based on weight – and since different cars weigh different amounts, the price will vary. However, we work with a significant number of specialist car scrap yards in Canterbury who look to purchase specific makes and models – so, we’ll do everything we can to maximise the amount you receive.

No, absolutely not. We do ask that our collection partners inspect each car – but this is simply to ensure the vehicle was described accurately when we issued a quote. As long as the car is as expected – you’ll receive the exact amount you were quoted.

To ensure you keep your private plate, you’ll need to remove it from your car before collection. The quickest way to do this is using the DVLA’s dedicated online service. When complete, you’ll be able to immediately transfer the number plate to a new car – or keep it on an official retention document for use in the future.

As long as your car isn’t being driven or kept on a public road, then it might make sense to make a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). To do this, you’ll need to contact the DVLA – either through their postal service or using their instant online system.

Yes, we will. The collection partners we use to pick up scrap cars in Canterbury are equipped to handle a massive range of vehicles – in various states of disrepair.

Yes, of course. Although the V5C looks complicated, you will only need to complete section 9 – the yellow tear-out part on page 3. It’s your legal obligation to make sure this is filled out and sent back to the DVLA – but our collection partner will be happy to help if you’re not totally sure what to do.
