Why should I donate a car in Escondido?

Your car is an essential part of your day-to-day routine, so when it’s starting to show signs of age, you want to check out your options. If you decide it’s time to upgrade, for a better speaker system maybe, or self-park capacity, you’ll have to decide what to do with the car you no longer need.

car 1376248 640Have you ever thought about a car donation in Escondido? Sure, you could do a trade-in or use CarMax, but there may be some advantages to a charity car donation program in Escondido. For one thing, if you trade it into a dealer, you typically only get 30-40% of the value of the car. If you try to sell it yourself, you have the headache of taking pictures, posting the sale and waiting for Craigslist buyers or sometimes even meet-ups with sketchy strangers.

Do you want someone to swoop in and take care of your car sale for you?

At Cars2Charities, not only do we take care of the entire process for you, we maximize the value of your auto donation by determining if improvements to the vehicle will get a better sale price. Then we actually make the improvements…and sell the car…and give you the tax write-off.

Best of all – you get to benefit any charity you choose.

Ready to downsize from the mom car? Want to get rid of the gas guzzler? We can make sure you get something for the car you no longer need.

How do I donate a car to charity in Escondido?

It’s easier than your best day of fishing on Dixon Lake.

One 3-5 minute call to us and you’re done. Seriously, that’s it. If you’re the executor of an estate, you can donate vehicles through us. Or if it’s your own car and you’re just over it – call us and we come and tow it away within 24-48 hours at the time and place that’s most convenient for you.

Sound too easy? Wait ‘til we tell you it’s completely free of charge. The towing fees are reimbursed by the non-profit you’re donating the money to.

And get this – the car doesn’t even have to run! (The hits just keep on coming, don’t they?) You may know about another vehicle donation program in Escondido where you have to take it to a drop-off location. Not with Cars2Charities – we come to you!

Our technicians use a 16-point assessment to determine which repairs or upgrades will get you and your charity the most money. Then we find a buyer, followed by the big ending: the money to your charity and your car donation tax deduction in Escondido.

Meanwhile, you’re probably heading to work or driving the kids to soccer in your new wheels.vehicle 3307908 640

How can I get the BEST car donation tax deduction in Escondido?

Like we mentioned before, if you trade in your car, they take a pretty big chunk of your car’s value. But, with a vehicle donation in Escondido, you can deduct the full sale price. When our technicians decide it’s necessary to make changes to your vehicle, in the form of upgrades and repairs to the inside and outside of the car, the sale price tends to be about 25-50% higher than your vehicle’s value without the changes.american 1239040 640
