Unless you have large chunks of money to give away, many people find donating a car to charity is the easiest way to offer considerable cash to a cause. It's also the most hassle-free way to move an unused car (and get a nifty deduction). So, if you find yourself with a car that you no longer need, no longer use or just don't like anymore, giving it to charity is a very kind option! Here are just a few reasons you may decide to donate your car to charity in Laguna Hills:
You've inherited a vehicle you don't need. Maybe college-age child, spouse, friend or someone you're helping is upgrading, or down-sizing. Maybe they got a transfer, are moving, or transitioning to new place - and it's up to you to help figure out what to do with their car. Perhaps it's a “project": a boat, motorcycle, or a classic car they've been meaning to fix up. But now, it's time to do something else. What a great opportunity to give to a charity close to your heart, or theirs. Lots of trustees and executors find vehicle donation in Laguna Beach is a great way to honor a loved one by supporting a cause they love, while minimizing time, effort and cost.
You wanna avoid the hassle of selling. Do you really want to invest to money and effort to improve your car yourself? Writing the ad, posting it, taking calls at all hours, and coordinating test drives with potential buyers can be very painful. You may find yourself haggling with low-ballers, who may then back - and then you start again. When you donate a vehicle, we pick your car up for free, and take care of all the details. We also handle all DMV paperwork, even if you can't find your title, your name has changed, or there are other complications.
You're ready for an upgrade. Maybe you've owned the car for a lot of years and it makes more sense to just buy a new car rather than keep paying for costly repairs. If you've tried to use your car as a trade-in and the dealer doesn't want it - or the quote from CarMax is laughable -- then maybe you'd be better off just donating. If a few dollars are not a make-or-break issue, why not take this opportunity to give back to a cause you love?
You're simply KIND. You've done well, and now it's time to give back. Maybe you have a charity that's close to your heart and want to make a donation that will create impact. When you donate a car to charity, you're not only giving new life to your unused vehicle for someone else to enjoy, you're giving the proceeds to a great cause. Share the love.
