Reasons to Donate a Car in San Jose

How do you know if you are ready to donate a vehicle in San Jose? Well, if you have the desire to support a charity close to your heart, donating a car is a perfect way to give. But maybe you are motivated to donate your car for other reasons. Here are just a few ways you know you're ready to donate your car: 

bmwI don't want to spend money to fix my car up.

Kristen was given a Toyota Camry for graduation eight years ago. It was her very first car and served her well. But when the engine blew, she could not afford to get it fixed. (Did you remember to get the oil changed, Kristen?) A local car dealer was running great deals on a new electric car lease that she could easily afford (and maintain) with no down payment. But what would she do with her broken Camry? She decided to call Cars2Charities. We were able to give her car a new life and sell it on behalf of an animal rescue charity in the San Jose community.

I want my driveway back, please! 

Take a look at your garage. Are you hoarding cars? There is such a thing called vehicle hoarding and we can certainly help you get your garage cleared out with FREE towing. Even if you do not have a hoarding problem, most people need regular maintenance to clear the clutter, get themselves organized and streamline their life. Has your golf cart just become another shelf? Donate a car or motorcycle in San Jose and get your garage or driveway back! When is the last time you took the boat out for a ride? Simply call 855-520-2100 and we'll arrange to tow your boat, motorcycle or golf cart off your property as soon as you are ready.

I'd like a large tax deduction this year.

Other vehicle donation programs send your car to auction “as-is". This means it sells for much less and you deduct much less off your taxes. However, when you donate a car through Cars2Charities, we take the time to improve the value of your vehicle donation before we sell it for charity. We typically add 25-50% value to our donated cars. When your donated vehicle sells at a higher value, your charity makes more money and YOU get to deduct the final sale price off the car!
