Like the ebb and flow of the tide, your lifestyle evolves with each stage of life. And that includes the car that best meets your needs. If your kids are grown you probably don’t need the Suburban anymore. Or if your career shifted into high gear, but now you have an hour and a half commute, you don’t want to drive that gas-guzzling Land Cruiser.afterglow atmospheric beach 414477

Whether you want to go green or you need bigger, car pool-friendly wheels, what will you do with your old car? We’ve got some great reasons why you should donate a car in South Orange County to the charity of your choice.

Why should I donate my car in South Orange County instead of selling it?

If you’re committed to the surfing lifestyle like a lot of OC residents, you need a car that can take you places. Are you ready to set the old Wagoneer afloat for a new Wrangler? Or maybe the Volvo wagon that got your board to the beach so many times is just done and you’d like to move up to a Ford Flex or a Subaru Forester. 

So what will you do with the car you don’t need? If you’re thinking about a dealer trade-in, think again. You’re losing 60-70% of the value of your car that way! The same goes for CarMax – which is convenient, don’t get me wrong – but everyone knows it’s only 30-40% of your vehicle’s value.

With a vehicle donation in South Orange County you’re eliciting the full value of your car – your write-off is based on 100% of the sale price, which we at Cars2Charities maximize through our process.

Do you want to support Catholic Charities or another religious institution? Or did you kids get a lot from their years in Little League, so you’d like to pay it forward? Any non-profit can gain from your decision to donate your vehicle through Cars2Charities.Research shows that dealers taking trade-ins just charge you more for the new car they sell you. Don’t get caught in that trap! Make the most of the opportunity to benefit your bottom line and enable a non-profit to continue its good work.

How can I donate a car to charity in South Orange County?

Believe it or not, you’re on your way in five minutes. As soon as you make a quick call to 855-520-2100 or contact us online, you’re good to go.Cars2Charities Tow Truck

Go back to the beach, hit the gym or ride some waves – we take it from there. We typically pick up in 24-48 hours – yes, one-day pick-up is available through Cars2Charities. Unlike some of the car charity programs that need you to get your car to them, we come to you, wherever and whenever is most convenient for you.

And here’s even more good news: We make selective improvements that maximize your car’s value. Translation? It typically means a bigger sale price, which means a greater donation to your charity, which means a bigger tax write-off for you!

After we find a buyer for your car, we finish everything else, down to the DMV paperwork. No taking pictures, no Craigslist shoppers for you to deal with, no transaction hassles. Your charity car donation in South Orange County also completely transparent to all parties – you, the charity and the IRS all get the same IRS form 1098, which reflects the same sale price. A confirmation letter outlines each step, and we hand you a temporary donation receipt. We take care of everything including the title transfer of your car.
