What do you do with my car donation?
Then we select the best marketing method to maximize the vehicle’s sale value. Some organizations auction vehicles that are donated. We, on the other hand, typically find it's best for you, and your charity, if we sell the vehicle to a retail buyer. Many buyers find fresh value in your newly improved vehicle, because we can often do more with it than you could.
As a result of this value maximization, our average selling price is significantly better: $1,835 average over the past 3 years. This means more money for your charity, and a larger tax deduction for you!

Is my car donation tax deductible?
However, individual tax situations vary. So please check with a tax professional to determine what if any tax benefit you may receive from a tax deductible donation.
How do you determine the value of my donated vehicle?
We are usually able to create an additional 25%-50% value -- compared to the "as is" value if your vehicle were to be sold at auction, which our competitors do. In fact, that's the reason we saw a need to start serving donors like you.
In a few cases, a vehicle may have little or no remaining value. In some rare cases, we can sell it only for parts, or scrap metal -- resulting in only a few hundred dollars. But even then, the IRS allows the donor to take a tax deduction of up to $500.
Typically, a donor's tax deduction is in the range of $1,500 to $5,000. Some donated vehicles sell for $8,000 - $12,000 or more. Our 3-year average sale price is currently $1,835.
How much will I receive as a tax deduction for my donated vehicle?
- The amount we sell your vehicle for. We will mail you a completed IRS tax form 1098-C showing the exact sale amount.
- Even if your car sells for less than $500, the IRS still allows you to deduct $500!
We provide you with an IRS tax form showing the final sales price of your vehicle, within 30 days of its sale.
Note: The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. You may want to check with your tax advisor to determine the amount of your benefit.
