Car donation in Portland, Oregon

If you love your job, but getting there makes you crazy, it could be your car doesn’t meet your needs. A car donation in Portland is an added incentive to consider making some changes. Your favorite charity can get some financial support, while you get a tax write-off ... and meanwhile, you slip into new leather seats with the most contemporary, stress-reducing bells and whistles on the market. You know what they are: multiple tailgate positions, A.I.-inspired climate control & seat positions; Apple Car Play or Android Auto.

And speaking of connectivity, the Hyundai Veloster sports coupe interfaces wirelessly with the Android Wear/Apple Watch. And the Toyota Corolla Hatchback and Lexus UX crossover SUV have a gearless automatic transmission called “launch gear.” If you’re a major car nerd, you probably know the 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Four-Door Coupe offers a feature that allows drivers to capture and analyze more than 80 vehicle-specific sets of performance data.

And here’s one more you don’t want to miss out on: The Subaru Ascent has a bird-watchers’ alert system!

Why should I donate my car in Portland instead of selling it?

If you’ve got over 100,000 miles on your car, the risk is increasing that you’ll need a new timing belt and may end up in an endless routine of visits to the auto shop. The last thing you want to do is break down on the I-5!

portland 841428 640If the idea of replacing your car sounds better and better, think about a vehicle donation in Portland through Cars2Charities. It’s your chance to upgrade (or downsize) and offer a boost to a favorite charity. And don’t forget you get a nice tax break.

The car you no longer need has value, and you can put it to use for the good of others when you donate a car to charity.

Have you always bought your cars from the Tonkin Family dealers? If you’re planning a dealer trade-in, consider this alternative. Dealers and CarMax only give you 30-40% of your vehicle’s value. Of course, they need to get a profit. But a tax write-off is based on 100% of the sale price of your car!

In addition to that, a study done by students at USC’s Marshall School of Business says that for customers with trade-ins, dealers actually increase the sale price of their cars.

Are you on the faculty at Oregon Health & Science University? How would you like your car charity donation in Portland to benefit the OHSU Foundation?

Or if you’re an animal advocate, there are numerous rescues that can benefit from your donation car. Animal Aid has been helping find homes for pets for more than 50 years. Or you can make a car or truck donation in Portland to benefit the more global Humane Society.

How do you donate your car in Portland?

It’s very straightforward and really easy. Just call us at 855-520-2100 or contact us online and we flex around your schedule. Our friendly associate will line up a technician to pick up your car at a time and place that’s convenient for you. 

When you make a car, truck or SUV donation in Portland through Cars2Charities, you hand over the keys and leave it to us! We pick up your donation car and sell it, and even process the paperwork – that means no interminable trips to the DMV for you!

Your job at this point is to choose a favorite charity to receive a nice check, while you collect the tax write-off! Just choose any 501(c)(3) – you may already be involved with one. Are you a Scout leader? Or a PTA member? There may be organizations your kids are involved with, such as music or sports programs, that are nonprofits and you don’t even know it.

If you love the music scene in Portland, there are a lot of possibilities. Car fremont bridge portland oregon 2364001 640donations in Portland can bring more talent to the area and offer instruction to youth.

Is blues music your bag? The well-known Waterfront Blues Festival is one of the biggest draws to Portland and has been for more than 30 years. You see performances by artists like George Thorogood, The Revivalists, The Mavericks and Beth Hart. And there’s the unforgettable fireworks display over the Willamette River. That concert series benefits the Oregon Food Bank, which might be your pick for the nonprofit to receive proceeds from your vehicle donation in Portland.

If you still can’t think of a nonprofit group to benefit, we can help you decide. We have partnerships with many car charity programs, plus we like forming new ones.

How can I get the best car donation tax deduction in Portland?

Since you already know that dealers and CarMax aren’t your best bet as far as your finances go, you can check with your CPA or see if Turbo Tax recommends that you get another tax write-off. If so, you can get ahead right now with a car, truck or SUV donation in Portland.

You would likely agree that the figures on your tax paperwork are more important than ever these days, and with us at Cars2Charities, you’ve got professionals with 3 decades of experience. In fact, we will handle your Portland car donation from start to finish, including the title transfer. And our process is totally transparent. According to IRS guidelines, both you and the charity you choose receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total. 

portland 1840765 640Whether you work for Providence Health or Boeing, you will need write-offs when you complete your taxes, and you want experts who can get top dollar for your donation vehicle. Our vehicle donation program in Portland is unique, because we maximize the value of your car by assessing it for necessary alterations before selling it. We’ve found that the changes typically garner 25-50% more money for the car, which means more money for the non-profit and a greater tax benefit to you!

It’s possible you don’t need a vehicle at all, especially if you get around pretty well on Portland’s rapid transit train, MAX.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not donating a vehicle to charity is a good idea for you, visit this CPA firm’s site to see the opinions of industry professionals. 

Can you donate a motorcycle in Portland? What about an RV or a boat?

Yes – we pick up all kinds of vehicles.

To quote MotorcycleRides.com, “Oregon is a heavenly collection of scenic motorcycle roads. In fact, some of the country's best motorcycle roads are found in the Beaver State due to its scenic diversity and scenic eminence.” Between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains, there is little that’s as dramatic as Oregon’s scenery. Are you and your motorcycle club friends racking up a lot of miles and need new bikes? Make a motorcycle donation in Portland through Cars2Charities and turn the bikes you don’t need into care for a nonprofit. 

Do you have a river residence and float 24-7? If you’re a “liveaboard,” how is your boat holding up? Or even if you just launch at Gleason and float down the Columbia – if it’s your favorite weekend activity there comes a time when you need to buy something new. When you plan to make a change, let us know so you can donate a boat in Portland to benefit a nonprofit.

If we’re more likely to find you at Mount Hood camping on weekends, you may have a motor home or trailer to make it a little more fun (than tent camping). When your Winnebago is turning back into a pumpkin, donate an RV in Portland through Cars2Charities to use its value for good.

If you’re a Pacific Golf & Turf “frequent customer,” you probably live in a community where you ride carts through the neighborhood. If you haven’t experienced dead batteries in your Club Car yet, you’ll find that they’re expensive to replace. If you want to upgrade, downgrade, or start hoofing it around the ‘hood, make a golf cart donation in Portland and give to charity.

Your generosity makes you a hero to others when you donate a car in Portland through Cars2Charities. Take advantage of the opportunity to help humanity with an extremely easy way to move your vehicle to a new owner. Our friendly associates are ready to help you at any time!
