There’s nothing better than the testimonial of another person when you’re putting your hard-earned money into a product or service. And what you want isn’t random griping, like people sometimes do on Yelp or Facebook. You need verified, unbiased information.
A car donation to the BBB continues the valuable recommendations they provide for the almost 400,000 accredited businesses that meet the non-profit’s high standards.
Consumers need an ethical hub with testimonials they can trust! For more than 100 years, the BBB has been there for Americans who need to know more before they shop or hire services. A vehicle donation to the Better Business Bureau through Cars2Charities means the value of the car you no longer need can fuel more help, more guidance for decision-making.
If you’ve never really thought about what it’s like to donate a car to charity, you probably don’t know the tremendous advantages. There’s more than just the benefit to the BBB.
When was the last time you bought a new car? Was one of the Bushes still in office? (Let’s hope it wasn’t Bush #1!)
It may be high time you started shopping. If you’re used to just doing a dealer trade-in, wait a minute! You’ll lose 60-70% of your car’s value that way! That’s too much!
At USC School of Business some students completed a study showing that not only do you lose money in the value of your car (obviously they need to make a profit). Dealers who know their customer has a trade-in tend to price the new cars higher. They assume, perhaps subconsciously, that since you don’t mind the obvious loss in the value of your old car, that you’ll pay more for a new one!
When you make a car, truck or SUV donation to the Better Business Bureau through Cars2Charities, you’re letting the value of the vehicle do some good ... and it helps your bottom line also!
Are you expecting a new baby, so you need something bigger than the MINI you got last year? Or is it the opposite issue? You’ve had the gas guzzling Tahoe since the car pool days, but your kids are grown now?

Just call us at Cars2Charities at 855-520-2100 or make your donation online. We get your basic information, then send our towing professionals to wherever you are. That’s pretty much it – for your end of the deal!
Did your car refuse to start after work? If it’s constantly in the shop, that’s a good reason to replace it. And the average age of a car is about 10 years old, so if you’re driving something older than that, it’s worth considering. There was an article in U.S. News & World Report that speaks to the reasons a new car is a good idea, especially if you foresee a lot of upcoming repairs – especially big ones, like replacing the transmission.

Do you often find yourself googling to see what counts as a tax write-off? Any time of year you can donate a car for that purpose, do it with Cars2Charities so the value of your car donation is maximized. After we pick it up, our technicians look it over and decide if it needs any alterations. Then we get it sold. You don’t have to do anything (as in, sell it yourself), plus we’ve found that cars with the improvements we make tend to sell for about 25-50 % more than those without the changes. That makes your donation higher and your tax write-off too!
