With over 35 years in the automotive industry, we have the experience needed to enhance your car before selling it to an individual buyer. When we eliminate the middleman and sell it at a higher price, your charity gets the best possible donation, and you get the highest tax deduction! Using the elbow grease of our very own in-house car techs, our auto donation program is truly unique.
We've Loved Cars for Over 35 Years! Caring for cars is our core business and we're pretty good at it. In fact, when it comes to examining and fixing cars up for resale, we've become quite the experts. How many other charity car programs have their own technicians? How many others have a comprehensive guideline to determine the best way to improve your car's value? Just us, it seems!
We Work with Retail Buyers —Not Auction Sites. Most programs send your car directly to auction, where it's typically purchased by a wholesaler looking to earn a profit. But not us. Not only do our technicians enhance your donation, but the fact that we market to retail buyers who appreciate the remaining life your gifted vehicle may still represent means your charity gets more support and you get a bigger vehicle donation tax deduction. We often match older vehicles with collectors, or a specially equipped van with a buyer who has special needs for example. So call and tell us your “wants". Especially if a vehicle holds sentimental value, we do our best to find a buyer who'll appreciate it as you do.
Cars2Charities is considered the best car donation company for many other reasons too:

How do you know if you are ready to donate a vehicle in Tempe? Well, if you have the desire to support a charity close to your heart, donating a car is a perfect way to give. But maybe you are motivated to donate your car for other reasons.
Here are just a few ways you'll know you're ready to donate your car:
I don't want to spend money to fix my car up.
Kristen was given a Toyota Camry for graduation eight years ago. It was her very first car and served her well. But when the engine blew, she could not afford to get it fixed. A local car dealer was running great deals on a new electric car lease that she could easily afford (and maintain) with no down payment. But what would she do with her broken Camry? She decided to call Cars2Charities. We were able to give her car a new life and sell it on behalf of an animal rescue charity in the Fremont community. Kristen was able to get a maximized tax deduction and support her favorite charity.
I want my driveway back, please!
Take a look at your garage. Are you hoarding cars? There is such a thing called vehicle hoarding and we can certainly help you get your garage cleared out with FREE towing. Even if you do not have a hoarding problem, most people need regular maintenance to clear the clutter, get themselves organized, and streamline their life. Has your golf cart just become another shelf? Donate a car or motorcycle in Tempe and get your garage or driveway back! When is the last time you took the boat out for a ride? Simply call 855-520-2100 and we'll arrange to tow your boat, motorcycle or golf cart off your property as soon as you are ready.
I'd like a large tax deduction this year.
Other vehicle donation programs send your car to auction “as-is". This means it sells for much less and you deduct much less off your taxes. However, when you donate a car through Cars2Charities, we take the time to improve the value of your vehicle donation before we sell it for charity. We typically add 25-50% value to our donated cars. When your donated vehicle sells at a higher value, your charity makes more money and YOU get to deduct the final sale price off the car!
In most cases, we accept all makes, models, and types of vehicles. While car and truck donations are our most popular type of donations, we also accept motorcycles, golf carts, and motorhomes.
Donating your vehicle is as easy as ONE, TWO, THREE!
