There are several seasons of life that are especially apt -- times when giving your car to charity makes special sense. For example, when you no longer need an extra car. Maybe you're down-sizing to fewer cars - or upgrading to a newer one and the trade-in doesn't make sense. Maybe you're helping a loved one who can no longer drive. Or maybe you've just decided to use UBER all the time. Here are some other reasons people donate vehicles to charity in Redondo Beach:
You Simply Don't Have the Time. Donating your car in Redondo is a great way to avoid the hassle of selling it. For one, it's a lot less paperwork. Of course, if you put the time and energy into it, you could get some cash back. But if your car's not worth much, your time may be more valuable. When you donate your car, you sit back and let us take care of all the annoying details. We've processed vehicles thousands of times. We know how to make it most beneficial, and we handle all the paperwork -- including the tax documents you'll need for the IRS in order to get your charity car tax deduction.
Your Car Needs Help. Fixing up cars is kind of what makes us special. So if the cost of repairing your car is starting to add up to more than it's worth, donating makes a lot of sense. Our in-house car technicians give donated vehicles the tender love and care they require to sell to retail buyers who for whatever reason want a vehicle like yours. Typically, we increase the value of donated cars by 25%-50%. A lucky buyer gets an affordable set of wheels and your charity gets more cash. Since you can deduct the full value of what your vehicle actually sells for on your tax return, you make out pretty well too!
Your Garage or Yard has Become a Parking Lot. Space is so tight in Redondo. If your vehicle's been sitting for the last six months, it may be time to consider moving it. After all, it can become a liability: you may be fined, your neighbors may start complaining - and assuming your garage is full and the driveway space is at a premium, who wants to deal with the street cleaning schedule?! Whether it's an RV, camper, truck, car, golf cart, motorcycle, van or even a commercial bus, we come to you and pick it up for free.
The Trade-in Value is too Low. Sometimes it actually makes more financial sense to donate your car than trade it in. Retail car lots like CarMax typically offer a fraction of the as-is value. After all, they're just going to fix it up and resell it for a profit for themselves. Cars2Charities fixes your car up, too. The difference is you benefit from the enhanced value during tax time. So, when you donate a car to charity, you're contributing to a worthy cause that YOU pick, AND you're increasing the amount on your tax deduction.
Of all the several places to donate a car in Redondo Beach, it can be hard to find the one that truly adds value to the charity and to you. Happily, you've found the one charity car donation program serving Redondo Beach that does physically improve how your vehicle looks and runs. This increases the typical donor's charity car tax deduction by 25-50%. We've built our reputation on integrity, commitment, and excellent service. You and the charity receive the same copy of the IRS Form 1098-C, ensuring 100% transparency about the ultimate sale price.
See what people are saying about Cars2Charities after they donate their car through us.
We've acquired a keen level of expertise when it comes to evaluating, fixing cars and donating the proceeds to charity. Our car techs follow a comprehensive checklist to determine the best way to improve your car's performance and appearance to the extent it gets more value for you and the charity. On average, this results in getting a 25%-50% better sale-price of your donated vehicle.
While most vehicle donation programs send your car directly to auction as-is, Cars2Charities uses in-house technicians to fix your car up and sell it for its new, HIGHER worth. Our hands-on approach eliminates auctions, wholesalers and the middle-man. We work with retail buyers, because we know that when your car is improved by us, it will sell for more. The more it sells for, the more money your charity gets and the more you can deduct from your taxes.
We work with lots of great non-profits, and if your favorite is not yet among them, it's easy for us to reach out to them. As long as they meet IRS rules, we handle all the details.
