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 city, 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.
It couldn't be easier to donate your truck or car in Long Beach. We've simplified the process down to a science. Here' how it works, and what you can expect.
1. Call 855-520-2100 to Schedule a FREE Pick Up. Our car experts can get a good sense of your kind donation in less than 5 minutes. Once you share your vehicle info, your location and of course, we arrange for free towing. (Your charity reimburses the cost of towing, improvements and handling.) You receive a temporary receipt from the driver, and are released of all liability for the vehicle once it's in our skilled hands.
2. Select Your Favorite Charity. We offer lots of great choices, are always open to new ones.
3. We improve your vehicle, and send your IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of sale. We pour 100% REAL LOVE into our donated vehicles. This translates to more cash for your charity and a higher tax deduction for YOU. Giving cars “new life" is one of our favorite parts of what we do, and also what makes our car donation program in Long Beach unique. We have over 35 years' experience making vehicles look and run better. Typically, cars that come through our processing center get 25%-50% more value than they had before they came to us. Our car enhancement service is completely free to you and you get to deduct the final sale price off your taxes as a charity donation.
We take pride in our commitment, integrity and full transparency. Once your car's sold, everyone gets a carbon-copy of the IRS Form 1098-C, showing the actual sale price of donated car, so there's never any doubt.
Yes, you can give just about any vehicle — even ones that don't work. While most donors make a car, truck or SUV donation in Long Beach, we have had much success selling commercial vehicles - do you can donate a bus, van, forklift and more. You can even donate a crane, earth-mover, construction equipment or manufacturing equipment.
We almost never turn away an RV donation in Long Beach, and boat donation is very popular too. Lots of people make a jet ski, ATV or motorcycle donation in Long Beach, especially if they've gotten to the point where that fun toy hasn't been used in 2 years or more.
Not all charity car donation programs are the same. Unlike cars4causes or others, we almost never just
send your donated car to auction, nor would be put it out to others “as-is." We have professional car experts who evaluate that value we can add - making selective improvements to how your car, station wagon, SUV or truck donation look and run to get the best sale price. Then we take great photos and market your car to retail buyers who can appreciate its remaining life. THIS is the key to getting a vehicle donation tax deduction in donation that's 25-50% more than you'd get working with any other car donation charity program.
Which non-profit should you choose to give the proceeds to? Whichever one you love, or know best! Do you have a passion for animal resuce? Want to help children, such as through the Ronald McDonald House? Maybe you were a Scout, and a donation to Girl Scouts would bring back fond memories.
Or could it be that you love public radio and you want to donate your car to NPR … or support the arts in some other way? Perhaps you're more interested in finding a cure for heart disease or lung cancer. Do you know someone suffering from Alzheimer's, or want to fund research before it hits too close to home? Might you prefer to donate your car to the American Cancer Fund, whose “help us finish the fight" campaign reminds us we have so much to live for? Alternatively, you might support women right here in Southern California with a car donation for breast cancer solutions - which brings hope and healing to families as survivors are trying to make ends meet.
Then again, lots of donors choose to give vehicles to the Salvation Army. Did you know that when you donate a vehicle to Goodwill you help provide vocational training and job opportunities right in your local neighborhood? Many donors like to donate cars to Catholic Charities, or to their local church. We can accommodate any of that.
You can even just say, “Cars2Charities, you choose for me." 1 in every 4 donors does exactly that, and we're glad to help. It's easy. It's fast. It's free. Let's get started.
