Charitable Auto Sales Resources, Inc. (CARS), a nonprofit organization based in San Diego, offers a service that allows donors to do just that! When purchasing a new vehicle, the owner must decide what to do with the old car or vehicle. According to CARS, there are three options:
- You can trade it in, which usually means getting less than it's worth.
- You can sell it yourself, which often means dealing with many inconveniences.
- You can donate your vehicle! This option allows the car owner to receive an itemized tax deduction for the car's full, true value while helping a favorite charity!
No matter where you live in the United States, CARS will arrange a time to pick up your vehicle - typically within a week of the donation. The nonprofit organization of the vehicle owner's choice will receive 70% of the net proceeds once the vehicle has been auctioned off or sold.
