4 Reasons To Donate Your Vehicle

4 Reasons To Donate Your Vehicle
Posted on Thursday, July 13, 2017

Looking to hit the water or the open road? There are so many different types of vehicles to do so! If the thought of selling your old vehicle is having you put off getting a new one, don’t fret any longer and donate your old vehicle to an amazing cause. If you thought vehicle donation was just for cars and trucks, you will be surprised to know that you can also donate boats, personal watercrafts, RVs, ATVs, and motorcycles. Here are some great reasons to donate:

Garage Space

Has there been a car sitting in your garage taking up some much-needed space or taking up a stall that you could put your new car in? You can donate your junk car to Vehicles For Veterans and we will come pick up your old car for free. This will help clear up space in your garage fast.


Do you live in a cold climate for most of the year? Do you have to get your boat and personal watercraft winterized and put in storage every year? If you are getting sick of the maintenance and all the tedious work that owning one of these vehicles comes with, you can donate it to our car donation program and you will be left knowing that your vehicle will help one of these amazing veteran’s charities.  


We all know that neighbors don’t like to look at a junk vehicle sitting in the driveway all year, or a boat on a trailer in the yard all summer long. This can cause some tension between you and your neighbors who might be too polite to ask you to move these vehicles. You can call us at 1-855-811-4838 or fill out our online donation form today and get that vehicle scheduled for pick-up right away. It could be gone as fast as tomorrow depending on how busy the towing companies are. You will be amazed at how great your lawn and house look with that scrap vehicle gone.


Did you buy a classic car as a “project” for you and the kids to work on? Maybe you bought it just for something fun to do in your spare time. Whatever the case may be, if what you thought would be a fun activity turned out to be a bigger project than you thought or life got too busy, you can cut your losses and donate your scrap car and get a great tax deduction in return. If you think your car isn’t worth more than a few hundred dollars, don’t worry; you can automatically claim the fair market value up to $500.

Still Not Sure?

We know that trusting someone with your vehicle that might hold a lot of fun memories can be scary. We make the process as painless as possible. Also, the proceeds from your vehicle will go to help disabled veterans and their families. Don’t let your vehicle sit around any longer because you feel like the memories will go with the vehicle. You will always have your memories, but your vehicle can help a hero that gave everything to protect our country. Make the right choice. Donate to Vehicles For Veterans
