You’re moving up in your career and it’s time to replace your car. You can donate a car in Arlington and send your old car on its way – fast and easy. You also get to choose a charity to benefit and collect a tax break yourself.
The day you decide your car or truck just doesn’t cut it anymore is a pretty exciting day. You start surfing deals online and researching favorite makes and models.
That’s the fun part. Getting rid of your old car is sort of a pain – especially if you don’t want to lose money by doing a dealer trade-in or CarMax transaction.
You already know that you only receive about 30-40% of the value of your car when you trade it in. But some USC researchers doubled down on that when they came out with a study showing that customers with a trade-in lose even more. Dealers have a tendency to hike up the price of the new car, because they assume you don’t care much about the bottom line.
If you’re a practical person you probably aren’t excited about selling it yourself either. The time it takes to thoroughly clean your car, then take pictures and post it online adds up – you can make more money by working, rather than spend time doing that.
That’s the beauty of a vehicle donation in Arlington through Cars2Charities. We’ve got the time – and 30 years of expertise – to handle it for you.
