Trax - Our refurbished cars are selling like...  well cars. 

 

Our motor mechanics project; Trax is on the look out for cars to refurbish and sell to support the charity. If your car has failed it's MOT or you are just looking to get a new one then we may be interested. Car repairs can be costly and if you have an old car it may not be economical to repair it. Scrap yards are currently charging around £100 to take your car away.

We can use your car as a project for young people to work on. At the same time the car is repaired and we can then sell it to help further support our young people.

We always have at least 2 cars for sale around the £500 price mark. The cars all come with a brand new MOT and buying from us means you have peace of mind buying from somewhere with an excellent reputation.

Also, if you have a car or know someone that does then get in touch, we'll collect your car for free and even pay a small amount if we feel that it is worth it.
