Giving a car to charity is a wonderful and generous option for anyone who doesn't need a vehicle. There are many reasons people give. Here are just a few reasons to donate a car to charity in Long Beach may be right for you:
You Want to Avoid the Hassle of Selling. Donate your car in Long Beach to spare yourself the hassle of fixing your car up, writing the ad, posting it, taking calls day or night, and coordinating - or even going along on -- test drives with potential buyers. Unless you enjoy haggling, avoid having to deal with low-ballers, who may then back out so you have to start again. When you donate a vehicle, we pick your car up for free, and take care of all those pesky little 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 10-15 years and it makes more sense for you 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 even want it - or the quote from CarMax is almost an insult -- then maybe you're better off just donating your vehicle. If a few hundred bucks in cash is not a make-or-break issue, why not take this opportunity to give back to something or someone you love? Maybe karma [or car-mah] is giving you the signal to give your car to charity.
Your property could use some freshening up. Need to clean your garage? Remove an eye-sore from your yard? Need some help clearing clutter? Experience the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. We'll gladly pick up your vehicle donation in Long Beach ASAP so you can get yourself organized!
You've inherited a vehicle you don't need. Maybe a spouse, college-age child, friend or someone you're volunteering to help has had a change of circumstances. Perhaps they're upgrading, or down-sizing. Maybe they got a transfer, are moving across town or to another Long Beach , or transitioning to new living arrangements - and they've left you in charge of their car. Perhaps it's a “project" -- a boat / bike / classic something they've been meaning to refurbish, and now you've all had it. What a great opportunity to give to a charity close to your heart, or theirs. Many trustees and executors find vehicle donations in Long Beach are a great way to honor a loved one by supporting a cause they love, while minimizing cost, time and effort.
You Have a BIG HEART. Some people are just naturally thoughtful and giving. If you're looking for an impactful way to give back to a cause without draining your bank account, donating a car in Long Beach to charity is a very generous option. Thank you, nice person! You're so appreciated. We'd be glad to pass a note along to whichever non-profit you choose.
