Are you losing confidence in your car’s ability to safely get you to work in Phoenix or to your classroom at ASU? If you feel like you’re on a first name basis with all the local mechanics it may be time to look for more reliable wheels.
What should you do with the car you no longer need? Did you know if you go with the trade-in idea you’ll lose a lot of the value? With CarMax or trade-ins with a dealer you only get about 30-40% of the car’s actual value.
But car donations in Tempe, Arizona allow you to write off 100% of the car’s resale value.
You probably put a lot of miles on your car, getting from downtown to dropping off the kids at practice or heading to Rolling Hills to play a weekly round of 18. (You don’t want car trouble to make you miss your tee time!)
There are so many things to do in Tempe, and maybe you’ve been thinking it’s a good idea to get a little bit more green. If you’re thinking of shifting down to a hybrid or electric car, it’s all the more ecologically sound when your auto donation gives someone the chance to use your car secondhand.
Heading to greener pastures (pun intended) happens in so many ways. Donating a car to charity in Tempe, Arizona brings you rewards that are threefold – the charity you choose gets money directly, another individual gets to drive your old car, and you get a tax benefit. Pick any 501(c)(3) you want and we’ll hand them a nice sized check! Don’t know which non-profit to choose? We have a number of unique organizations to suggest, or you can let us know if you’d like to benefit a church, school or service organization. When we reach out to these communities, they often receive even more donations due to the partnerships that grow!

If you have five minutes to spare and want to get your old car out of the way, it’s as easy as making a quick call to us at 855-520-2100. We take care of everything—you can head to a Sun Devils game or see your favorite band at Tempe Beach Park while we handle every detail of your donation.
We pick up your vehicle within 24-48 hours at a time and location convenient for you and let our experts assess the car for appropriate improvements or upgrades.
We then find a buyer for your car and finish the process, even the paperwork.
You aren't limited to dropping off your car at a designated location like some car charity programs or government exchange arrangements. You also don’t have to deal with the pain of selling it on Craigslist or other social media platforms. We send an experienced driver for free to tow your donating vehicle, regardless of whether or not it runs on its own.
For complete transparency, we email you both a confirmation letter that outlines each step of our process, along with a temporary donation receipt, when we’ve completed your donation. Do you dread a visit to the DMV like most people? We handle all that red tape for you, including the title transfer of the car.
After we make necessary alterations, the car’s value usually goes up about 25-50% as a result of the changes, so we can make sure your deduction is maximized. The charity reimburses us for towing, repairs and a standard service fee, and then they get a donation check. A charity car donation in Tempe, Arizona is a way to avoid making last minute decisions about tax write-offs while all the paperwork is at your accountant’s office or you’re sitting at the computer doing Turbo Tax.
We follow every guideline and rule dictated by the IRS when you donate your car. When we sell it, we report the exact sale price, both to you and the charity. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total.
