That is why we have provided a number of benefits that come along with making your donation. Hopefully these will help put your mind at ease and answer any questions you may have regarding how to donate a car.
Save yourself time & trouble AND gain a tax deduction
Whenever you acquire anything new, there is always the problem of what to do with the old. Keep it? Sell it? Give it away? A car isn't an item that can easily be disposed of, and the new car probably wasn't cheap. Most likely, your first thought is to try and sell your old vehicle to defray some of the costs of the new one. To maximize your chances of getting the best offer, you'll have to spend a substantial amount of time doing preliminary research on the market value of the car. You may have to spend money on repairs, inspections, title or lien disparities, and ultimately advertising. You'll also have to make yourself available to prospective buyers who will have questions and want to come and view the car; and when money finally changes hands, you only have the honor system to back you up if something does goes wrong. On the other hand when you decide to donate a vehicle, our automobile donation charity is poised and ready to take care of everything, from paperwork and pick-up to auction and issue of your tax-deductible receipt. Yes, with your donation comes tax deduction, and all you have to do is make the initial phone call. It’s as simple as that, trust us.
Give back and contribute to a good cause
A charitable automobile donation will go far in making a difference to a cause that really needs your assistance. Non-profit organizations have really gotten into the business of car donation in the past several years, and since they rely on such donations and the funds they supply, organizations are motivated to make the entire process as fast, efficient and hassle-free for the donor as possible. When you donate an automobile know that you will be changing lives and helping those in need in your community and beyond. A little goes a long way in making a huge difference for someone who truly needs a helping hand.
Recycle and reduce environmental impact
When you donate an auto , it ultimately goes to auction, and at auction, it is assigned a value relative to its viability as an operable vehicle or to the marketability and reusability of its parts. In essence, the vehicle will take on a new life or be recycled. Either way the vehicle is saved from the landfill and prevented from damaging the environment even further. Auto parts are notorious for leaching highly toxic chemicals and byproducts as they break down so donating a car will ultimately reduce the negative impact on the environment from your older vehicle.
With all of these benefits your car donation is really a win-win situation for everyone involved. So make a difference and reap the benefits today through your car donation!
