The Donation Process

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! 

kidsincarWe 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.

We accept all makes, models, and types of vehicles. While car and truck donations are our most popular type of donations, we also accept motorcyclesgolf carts, and motorhomes.

Step 1: Preparing for the Process

You’ll start the process of donating your car in Irvine by collecting the vehicle's cleared Certificate of Title and Registration.

If you have misplaced your title or registration, don’t worry! We can help. Please find your vehicle's identification number (VIN) and together we can determine which supplementary paperwork you will need to complete at the time of pick up. 

At this time, you may want to look at the different charities we work with. Whether your passion is helping those in need or supporting animal rescues, you have the power to choose where your donation goes. Not seeing the charity you're wanting to donate to? Just let us know the charity's name, address, and phone number and we will contact them about your donation. 

Step 2: Scheduling Your Pickup 

Give us a call at (855) 520-2100, or complete an online donation request. Our friendly donation coordinators will gather your vehicles information, and together, we will decide the most convenient time, date, and location for the pickup. Then we will send you an email that gives you step by step instructions to prepare you for the pick-up.

Before arriving, our tow truck driver will call you one hour before to give you time to collect paperwork and prepare the vehicle for towing. At the time of the pick-up, make sure your title is signed and clear of any lien holdings. You will hand over the title and registration to the tow truck driver. 

Step 3: Maximizing the Donation

We take the reins at this point to maximize the donation for both our donors and charities. We do this by assessing the vehicle and adding value to increase the selling price of the car. 

It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.

Benefits of Donating to Charity

wheelBy donating, you can share your passion for change and draw attention to what you consider important. In return not only do you receive a tax deduction, but the feeling of know that you are helping this cause.

Tax Deduction

Car donations to charity are considered by the Internal Revenue Service and the State to be COMPLETELY TAX DEDUCTIBLE. 

This means that the price your car is sold for will be tax deductible. Both you and the charity will receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30-50 days of the sale of your vehicle, making the transaction transparent to all parties. Plus, we do all the work. There’s no standing in lines at the DMV or dealing with the paperwork to transfer the title. 

Need some more info? The IRS guidelines for tax deductions is a great resource. You can also learn more about our vehicle donation program by watching our videos, which focus on frequently asked questions that we've grouped by topic.
