It's the same challenge every year. Which tax write-off makes the most sense?
Perhaps it never crossed your mind, but if this is the year for a vehicle change, you can kill two birds with one stone by making a car donation in Claremont.
Not only do you get a chance to enjoy your new ride (while somebody else handles all the details), you can contribute to your bottom line and benefit the charity you choose. Through Cars2Charities, you can donate a car in Claremont with only one requirement on your part: a 3-5 minute phone call to 855-520-2100.
We come to you within 24-48 hours, pick up the car you no longer need, sell it for you, and then hand your charity a check while you take the total off your taxes.
You can get back to your lectures, enjoy some music or wine tasting - whether you're a merchant, a university professor or a medical professional, you have better things to do!
Another nice feature of our charity car donation program in Claremont, besides the fact that we tow it away free of charge whenever and wherever is most convenient for you, is that our process maximizes your tax deduction by adding value to the vehicle (The charity you choose reimburses Cars2Charities for the towing, improvements, and handling). Our coordinators bring your car to our team of technicians, who do a 16-point assessment to determine the value of making repairs and upgrades to your auto donation. Our research has shown that vehicle donations in Claremont typically sell for 25-50% more than cars for charity without the improvements.
If you're accustomed to doing dealer trade-ins or CarMax when it's time to upgrade your car, you may not know that you tend to only get 30%-40% of the value of your vehicle. An interesting study at the Marshall School of Business at USC revealed that dealers increase the sale price of their cars when presenting quotes to shoppers who are planning to trade in their cars. The researchers found that car sales personnel assume that buyers with trade-ins aren't very concerned about the bottom line.
Yes - you reap the same benefits if you make a recreational vehicle donation in Claremont as you do with auto donations. If you find you no longer use your motor home as much as you did, we can pick that up for you, or can donate a camper in Claremont.
As for a golf cart you aren't getting much use for, a golf cart donation in Claremont is not just a great way

You recognize quality and value wise financial decisions, including the choices you make on your tax return.
The tax deduction you get from a car donation program in Claremont has advantages when you use our unique process. In addition to the added value from the repairs and upgrades we typically make to cars for charity, you're getting the added bonus of our integrity.
You can also be confident that we follow the IRS guidelines for your tax deduction. Both you and the charity receive IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, providing total transparency; both you and the charity of your choice receive paperwork indicating the final sale price of your car.
As for your bottom line, in addition to the vehicle improvements, we also sell car donations in Claremont privately, rather than through auction, when possible. Cars are generally sold for the value of “as is" condition at auction, so the higher sale price from a private sale maximizes your tax advantage.
When you're ready to have the car you no longer need picked up and move on to your vehicle upgrade, donate a car in Claremont by contacting us online or make a quick call.
