Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What are the benefits of donating my vehicle to a nonprofit?

    • Donating is easy and the pick-up is free.

    • Donating skips the costs and hassles associated with selling a car, like paying for advertising and insurance, or for car repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.

    • Donating avoids the costs associated with keeping a car, such as registration, insurance, car repairs, and more.

    • You can free up space at home and/or stop paying for extra parking.

    • It's better than a low trade-in offer.

    • Vehicle donations are tax-deductible, and you could reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized.

    • Donating to a nonprofit feels good and makes a difference.

  • What types of vehicles do you accept?

    All vehicles are considered! We strive to accept all types of donated vehicles (running or not) including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, and most other motorized vehicles. To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please complete our secure online vehicle donation form, or call us during regular hours of operation.

  • What type of paperwork will I need to donate my car?

    You will need a current and clear title. Any lien holder listed on the title must be cleared and/or released by the bank. This law varies by state.

  • Are there any costs?

    There is no cost to the donor. All expenses are deducted from the gross sales price, and if the costs ever exceed the price, those costs are covered by our vehicle donation program provider CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services).

  • Can you pick up vehicles in all 50 states?

    Yes! We can provide convenient pick-up and towing for vehicle donations just about anywhere in all 50 states. We provide vehicle donation processing in the contiguous 48 states as well as the District of Columbia, without limitation. In Alaska, we service the Fairbanks and Anchorage areas with a 50-mile service radius. In Hawaii, we service the island of Oahu and the island of Hawaii. If you are donating outside of the state or if you have questions about donating, get started via our secure online vehicle donation form or call us seven days a week during regular hours of operation. We would be happy to help you.

  • My car doesn’t run or hasn’t been used in years. Can I still donate it?

    Yes! We can accept most vehicles, running or not. However, it must be in one piece and towable, have an engine, and be tow truck accessible. To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please choose a nonprofit, complete the secure online vehicle donation form, or call us. Our Donor Support Team is available seven days a week during regular hours of operation.

  • What is considered accessible for safe towing?

    Vehicle donations considered accessible for safe towing are typically parked in the front driveway, in front of the home or apartment building, or on the street and without any other vehicles or other items blocking the intended donation. The tow operators typically cannot access areas that do not have a direct path to the vehicle backyards and back alleyways, nor underground structures or other. Usually, all four tires should be inflated as well. We strive to consider every vehicle donation, so if you’re not sure whether or not your vehicle is accessible for safe towing, please let us know and we will do our best to support you.
