What can I donate?

Thank you for your interest in donating your vehicle for a Veterans charity. We gratefully accept almost all car donations. We also accept donated trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers and recreational vehicles. Boats and planes may require a call to see if they meet minimum criteria.

What if my vehicle isn't running?

Your vehicle does not have to be running, but it must be whole and have four inflated tires so it can be moved by our towing operators. You will be asked to explain the condition of the vehicle. In rare cases, we are unable to accept a vehicle donation when the costs of transport and processing fees exceed the auction value of the vehicle.

How long will it take you to pick up my vehicle donation?

All vehicle donations are processed as quickly as possible. Typically, we will pick up your vehicle within 2 or 3 days after the title is received by our processing center. You can speed up the process by downloading documents online. Special arrangements can be made whenever car donations must be made quickly.

What paperwork do I need for my donation?

Most of the time all you need is a signed title, but if you have any questions or concerns please contact our donor service department at 877-892-4494.

Do I get a tax deduction for my donation?

Absolutely, if you itemize your tax return you may deduct the sale value of your donated vehicle or the fair market value up to $500, whichever is greater. To get your deduction you do have to file an itemized return. You can find more information on charitable vehicle deduction tax deductions at: http://www.irs.gov/charities

How do charities benefit from vehicle donations?

All vehicles we accept for donations are sold at auction and the proceeds benefit the Veterans charity to help to disabled American Veterans and Veteran families.

What percent of the proceeds does the charity receive?

A lot of different costs, like towing, auction, advertising fees and expenses, can affect the proceeds generated from a vehicle donation. Depending on the sale value of the vehicle the charity you choose will receive at least 50 percent of the proceeds.

My car doesn’t run and is in bad condition, can I still donate?

Absolutely! We take almost any vehicle from almost any location.

When I donate a vehicle do I get a receipt?

Yes you will be mailed a receipt for tax deduction purposes about five days after your vehicle donation is picked up.
