Cars2Charities has become the premier solution for motorcycle donation such as owners seeking to donate a motorbike, moped or scooter. Why? Because of our unique operating model that adds value to just about every donated vehicle.
Charities welcome bike donations of all kinds! On behalf of non-profit organizations, we repair, refurbish and sell donated motorcycles so that the proceeds can benefit any charity you choose. It doesn't matter whether you ride a street bike, a hog, a chopper, crotch rocket, or a Goldwing cruiser. We accept all makes and models – so whether you want to donate a Harley Davidson, Yamaha motorcycle, Suzuki motorcycle or scooter, Ducati, Honda moped, Kawasaki motorcycle, Indian or any other make or model of motorcycle, Cars2Charities will be able to create value ... even if it hasn't run in years.
People donate motorcycles for many reasons. Perhaps you racked up many happy miles and wonderful memories riding it, and now you're ready for something bigger, or smaller -- or just different! Or maybe you bought the bike in a wave of enthusiasm that ebbed over the years. For some, the initial thrill of the ride has come and gone. In other cases, that bike was a gift, or something a friend or family member left behind. In any case, you sense a need to make some kind of change.
Whatever your situation, if you have a motorcycle gathering dust in your garage or yard, wouldn't you rather put it to better use by donating the proceeds of its sale to a cause that's dear to your heart? With Cars2Charities, you can do exactly that!
With more than 30 years of experience, Cars2Charities has the expertise in making motorcycle donations easier than ever. Cars2Charities is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their motorcycles.
Step 1: Preparing for the Process
You’ll start the process of donating your motorcycle by collecting the motorcycle's cleared Certificate of Title and Registration.
If you have misplaced your title or registration, don’t worry! We can help. Please find your motorcycle's identification number (VIN) and together we can determine which supplementary paperwork you will need to complete at the time of pick up.
At this time, you may want to look at the different charities we work with. Whether your passion is helping those in need or supporting animal rescues, you have the power to choose where your donation goes. Not seeing the charity you're wanting to donate to? Just let us know the charity's name, address, and phone number and we will contact them about your donation.
Step 2: Scheduling Your Pickup
Give us a call at (855) 520-2100, or complete an online donation request. Our friendly donation coordinators will gather your motorcycles information, and together, we will decide the most convenient time, date, and location for the pickup. Then we will send you an email that gives you step by step instructions to prepare you for the pick-up.
Before arriving, our tow truck driver will call you one hour before to give you time to collect paperwork and prepare the motorcycle for towing. At the time of the pick-up, make sure your title is signed and clear of any lien holdings. You will hand over the title and registration to the tow truck driver.
Step 3: Maximizing the Donation
We take the reins at this point to maximize the donation for both our donors and charities. We do this by assessing the motorcycle and adding value to increase the selling price of the motorcycle .
It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.
When you call Cars2Charities at 855-520-2100 or donate online, we work to maximize the value of your donation in unique ways that most motorcycle donation programs in your city currently do.
We make necessary improvements to donation vehicles after picking them up. Our technicians assess your donation motorcycle to be sure it sells for as much as possible. Your tax write-off is based on the selling price, so it benefits you to make your motorcycle donation through us at Cars2Charities. Our motorcycle care and expertise typically result in a 25%-50% higher value for your donated vehicle when changes are made.
Charities are not the only ones who benefit. Your reward for being kind is a sweet tax deduction. By donating a motorcycle in your city, you’re part of a win/win proposition. Our value-enhancing service doesn't cost you a thing and allows you to deduct the full sale price off your taxes as a charity donation. We operate with full transparency between donor and charity by making sure everyone has a copy of the IRS regulated paperwork — including the IRS Form 1098-C which you will receive within 30 days after the sale of your motorcycle.
