Why Should I donate a car in Lake Forest?

Is it time for a vehicle upgrade?

Has your car been showing signs of age lately, or have you considered down-sizing to use less gas and help both your wallet and the environment?

If so, you have an opportunity to benefit someone else at the same time. A car donation in Lake Forest means that the charity of your choice gets some extra money, while you benefit on April 15th.

Not only that – it’s really, really easy! Just a 3-5 minute phone call to us at Cars2Charities and we’ll get your charity car donation in Lake Forest in motion.

sunrise 1634197 640If you’re approaching the empty nest stage and don’t need a big SUV, or if you’re ready for something a little bit more sleek (an Audi maybe?) or just plain fun (a convertible?), there are great reasons to let the car you no longer need have a second life. Not only does another family get some much-needed wheels, someone in need gets to benefit from your decision.

And don’t forget – your accountant is going to love you! There’s no scrambling around at the end of the year hunting tax write-offs this way.

You want a competent company to handle the details, and we come whenever and wherever is most convenient for you. Within 24-48 hours the whole job is done (on your end). We proceed to sell your auto donation for maximum profit, write a check to your favorite charity, and give you the info for your taxes.

There’s seriously no work on your part -- we complete the donation for you.

Of course, if you really wanted to clean up the car, get it running right, take pictures, post it on Craigslist and wait for strangers to show up at your house to see it…well, I guess you could do that instead of donating a car in Lake Forest. But, you’d probably rather kick back on the beachfront or go shopping for a new car!

Can I donate a Golf Cart in Lake Forest? Or a boat or RV?

Yes, you can – our easy car donation applies to all kinds of recreational vehicle donation in Lake Forest. A golf cart donation in Lake Forest works the same as if you donate your car in Lake Forest. And if yours has a dead battery, you may want to question if it’s worth replacing, at $160 each (and most golf carts have 6-8 of them). golf carts 1673157 640

We pick up campers, trailers – you can basically donate an RV in Lake Forest of any kind, including quads/ATVs. Want us to pick up a motorcycle donation in Lake Forest? We come and get it whenever you’re ready to turn in your Harley or Kawasaki – or other sports vehicle.

Have you spent more time on the golf course lately, while your boat has been just sitting, taking up space? Donate a boat in Lake Forest to contribute to the cause of your choice. Also, donating a vehicle you use on the lake can include items like jet skis and Sea Doos.

You may have heard about other vehicle donation programs that insist you transport your car to a drop-off site somewhere. But, we come to you! In fact, with our free car donation, we take care of the title transfer, the DMV paperwork – everything – while you get the tax break.

What’s the best car donation tax deduction in Lake Forest?

The potency of your donation is important to you, and our process is most likely to get you the largest car donation tax deduction in Lake Forest.

Because our experts make appropriate repairs and upgrades to the car before selling it, we maximize the vehicle’s value in order to raise the selling price (which gets you a bigger tax write-off and your charity a bigger check). A car, truck or SUV donation in Lake Forest through us tends to sell for 25%-50% more than a car without the improvements.

Also, we sell your car privately to an individual buyer who is willing to pay more than wholesale buyers at auction houses.american 1239040 640

After the sale, we have a speedy and transparent process, where you receive the papers for tax purposes and your charity receives a check within 30 days of the sale.
