How the Vehicle Donation Process Works

We accept car and motorcycle donations (running or not). The process is fast and easy: 1) Provide us with the vehicle information (fill out the form above) and arrange a free pick up time convenient for you. 2) We will tow your vehicle.  3) We will provide you with a receipt at the time of pick up and send you an acknowledgment letter within a month. 4) We will notify you of the sale of the vehicle and provide you with the proper forms for tax deduction purposes.

The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of a) The value of your vehicle donation up to $500 or b) The amount we sell your vehicle for –if it is more than $500.

You can check with your tax preparer to determine the amount of your benefit. The IRS publishes A Donors Guide to Vehicle Donation that you can read for a more detailed overview.

Step 1 of 3 - Vehicle Information

  • Please enter a number from 1800 to 2100.
  • You can find VIN on the driver's side and look at the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield. If the VIN cannot be found there, open the driver's side door and look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed).
