General Vehicle Donation Questions

I’m ready to donate my vehicle. How do I get started?

That’s great! To get started donating your vehicle, you can either fill out our simple and secure online vehicle donation form or call us at 323-800-1121. It’s that easy!

What happens to my vehicle after I donate it?

When your vehicle is picked up, it is taken to an auction to be sold. After your donated vehicle has been sold, we will mail you your sold receipt for tax purposes.
If your vehicle sells for less than $500, this letter will notify you that you are eligible to take a deduction of the fair market value of the vehicle up to $500 without further documentation. If your vehicle was sold for more than $500, this letter will notify you of the final selling price.

Can I donate my vehicle even if it doesn’t run?

It all depends. Be sure to provide our vehicle donation specialist detailed information on the condition of the vehicle being donated.

Can I donate more than one vehicle?

Definitely! There is no limit to how many vehicles you can donate. We’re happy to walk you through the process of donating multiple vehicles. Just give us a call at 323-800-1121.

Can you explain the process of donating a vehicle?

Sure. The vehicle donation process is super quick and simple. First, you get in contact with us and we ask you a couple questions – either by filling out or online form or by calling us at 323-800-1211. These questions include information like your contact information, the make and model of the vehicle to be donated, and where the car is located.
Then, we do all the rest – from arranging a towing company to pick up our car to delivering you the paperwork used for tax benefit purposes.
