7 Reasons To Donate Your Car To Charity

7 Reasons To Donate Your Car To Charity
Posted on Sunday, February 19, 2017

When you have an unwanted vehicle, there are plenty of ways you can get rid of it. You can attempt to sell it online, place a newspaper ad, trade it in to a car dealer, or put it into long-term storage in case you ever need it again. However, those options can be time consuming, expensive and disappointing. 

One thing that will never let you down is a car donation to Vehicles For Veterans. Car donation isn’t often the first thing that comes to someone’s mind when thinking of easy ways to get rid of a vehicle. Vehicles For Veterans makes the donation process so easy that it might just be the only option you ever use for unwanted cars again!

Why Donate Your Car

If you aren’t sure car donation will be beneficial to you, here are seven great reasons that will convince you to donate your unwanted car today!

1. You’ll Save Money

Many of us hold onto unwanted vehicles for our own reasons. Maybe it’s sentimental because it’s the first car you ever drove. Maybe it’s a car you bought years ago intending to fix up. It could be a seasonal vehicle such as a boat or RV that you only use once a year, but pay to store the rest of the year. Or maybe something on your vehicle needs a repair and you never get around to fixing it. By donating a car, you save money by not making repairs, storing your vehicle, or paying for insurance on a vehicle you don’t use.

2. It Saves You Space

One of the main concerns with holding onto an unwanted vehicle is the amount of space it takes up. If you have a small garage or shed, an unused vehicle can easily take up a majority of the space. Imagine how much room you would have without that vehicle.

3. Car Donation Gives You Peace Of Mind

Whatever your reason for holding on to a vehicle you don’t need, it can be nice knowing that you can donate your car, boat, RV or other vehicle even if it no longer runs, is a later model, or needs some work. We accept most vehicles in any condition. You don’t have to worry about taking care of any maintenance issues when you donate your car. We even accept junk cars in many cases, which can be a huge hassle to dispose of on your own!

4. You Don’t Have To Do Any Of The Work

Donating a car may seem complicated, but it’s not! All you have to do is get in touch with Vehicles For Veterans and we’ll answer all your questions, schedule your vehicle towing time, and handle all of the paperwork. We process your title and mail your tax documents and receipt so you don’t have to worry about a thing once we pick up your car.  

5. It Supports Charitable Work

Your car donation to Vehicles For Veterans benefits programs that help veterans. The proceeds from car donations help fund programs that provide health and wellness, housing, employment, medical care and disability resources for veterans.

6. You Receive Free Towing

Vehicles For Veterans will come pick up your car donation for free from almost anywhere in the U.S. We serve cities and rural areas alike in every state, and you never have to pay for towing. Learn more about the areas we serve here

7. Car Donations Are Tax Deductible

Because Vehicles For Veterans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation is completely tax deductible. After your donation is picked up, you’ll receive a receipt that you can use to claim a deduction on next year’s taxes. Donating your car to charity is a great way to reduce your taxable income with a tax deduction!
