Why should I donate my car in Salinas?

You have places to go and people to see, and your car is not being its old reliable self. It may be time to move on to a newer vehicle.

Did you know there's a way to free yourself from the vehicle you no longer need and get the top value of the car, giving you the write-off, and benefiting your favorite charity? 

A simple call to us at Cars2Charities - 855-520-2100 - and we tow it away within 24-48 hours, totally free of charge (The charity you chose reimburses Cars2Charities for the towing, improvements, and handling). 

In a town with so much history, like a 100-year-old rodeo, you may be used to doing things in a certain way. But, when it's time to send your car to greener pastures, we have a process you may not have considered. Donating a car to charity in Salinas offers vehicle owners an alternative to the massive effort of managing a Craigslist post or private sale of some kind.Cars2Charities Tow Truck

And don't forget you're benefiting a charity when you donate a vehicle in Salinas. 

As a source of the world's agriculture, Salinas residents are keenly aware of the need to preserve nature in its healthiest form. One idea is to reduce your carbon footprint with a more fuel efficient car, perhaps moving to a hybrid or electric vehicle.

How do I donate a car in Salinas?

Want to know the exact process how to donate a car in Salinas? It's simple: one phone call from you is all it takes - then we take the bull by the horns. 

We pick up your vehicle at a time and location that is convenient for you, within 24-28 hours, if you prefer. Next, our repair staff uses a 16-point inspection to determine the best repairs and upgrades to bring your car to its maximum resale potential. The more we sell it for, the greater your tax benefit. We do the fixing, the listing, the selling - your favorite charity gets a check and you get a nice tax benefit.

When you live in Monterey County, you really don't want to waste a minute doing anything like the hassle of selling a car. Chances are you aren't too interested in cleaning, photographing and listing your car, then waiting to find a buyer.

You only need to call us at 855-520-2100 and let us take care of it. We at Cars2Charities will do everything needed to complete your donation.

How can I get the BEST car donation tax deduction in Salinas?

In the birthplace of author John Steinbeck, you know a classic when you see one. And, unless your aging vehicle is a classic car, it's not an investment to hang on to. It may be a novel idea (pardon the pun) to reap a car donation tax deduction in Salinas, but our process is all by the book (sorry - now it's going too far!).

american 1239040 640Seriously, with our auto donation program in Salinas, the transaction is transparent and above board. After we sell your vehicle, we report the actual sale price of the car to you and to the nonprofit receiving the benefit. Following the guidelines prescribed by the IRS, we submit the paperwork to you and to the charity you choose. You both receive IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale. 

If you're just planning to go to the dealer and work out a trade-in situation or utilizing CarMax, there may be good reasons to donate your SUV in Salinas, or your car or truck, etc. instead. You usually only get about 30%-40% of your car's value with those tactics. But, with vehicle donations in Salinas, you can deduct 100% of its sale value. Our expert technicians make appropriate changes to your vehicle, in the form of upgrades and repairs to the inside and outside of the car, so the sale price tends to be about 25-50% higher than your vehicle's value without the changes.
