There are several points in life when car donation in Calabasas makes sense. Are repair bills getting too high? Are you upgrading? Down-sizing? Moving to a new location, and transporting the vehicle is not worth it? Are you helping someone else transition, or perhaps serving as a trustee or executor?
Perhaps you've talked with CarMax or a dealership, and the trade-in value is practically an insult. Have you considered donating your car in Calabasas to a nonprofit organization?
We know you're busy. The thought of trying to sell a vehicle on your own probably makes you cringe. Writing a great ad, posting it, hoping for great responses from craigslist or eBay, fielding calls at all hours, and hoping they show up on time can be exhausting just to think about. Let's not even mention the effort of improving the vehicle yourself to try to get the best price, then haggling with low-ballers trying to get a steal-of-a-bargain … and the fact that they may back out at the last minute. And let's not forget dealing with the DMV about title transfer.
If cash in hand is key, these efforts may be worth it. But if a few hundred dollars one way or the other is not your most important criteria, why not donate your car to a favorite cause and enjoy the satisfaction of supporting a cause you may be passionate about? We improve your Calabasas vehicle donation, typically adding 25-50% value to its “as is" condition, vs. trade-in or auction value. Check out other donors' experiences and testimonials, with pictures.
It's really easy! Simply click “Donate Now", or call 855-520-2100. Just 3-5 minutes with one of our expert coordinators is all it takes to get started. We do all the heavy lifting. We schedule a free pick up, tow your vehicle, and handle all the DMV and other paperwork. It's a smart move, because our expert repair staff also makes appropriate improvements before marketing your vehicle to a qualified network of retail buyers. THIS is what adds the 25-50% extra value! (The charity you choose reimburses us for towing, improvements to your vehicle, and a handling fee.) Then, within 30 days of sale you can expect to receive your vehicle donation tax deduction.
Take advantage of it - enjoy the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, and perhaps start shopping for your next car. Or just enjoy the freedom of new space, a tidier garage - and the joy of giving to whichever cause you have a passion for!
Donating is faster, easier and in most cases as good a financial outcome as selling it yourself, or trading it in at a dealer where they typically offer you about 30-40% of the resale value they
expect to get after they improve your vehicle. With our unique value-adding process, you can cut out the middle man -- and get the benefit of the higher sale price yourself, while supporting a cause you love.
We make selective improvements to car donations in Calabasas. Our technicians evaluate how we can enhance how your vehicle looks and/or runs, and after we do what will get a good return for you and your charity, we take great photos and inform our network of buyers. We almost never auction vehicles. Private buyers appreciate your vehicle's remaining life and its true potential value, which means better results for both you and your charity. So, a vehicle that's worth, for instance, $4,000 “as is," if donated through any other charity car donation program in Calabasas, is something that might bring in $5,000 to $6,000.
Within 30 days of sale, we send a nice check to your charity, and provide you with the papers for a tax deduction that should please you and your accountant. IRS guidelines enable you to deduct the FULL SALE VALUE of charity car donations. After your car, boat or golf cart donation is complete, you and the non-profit you chose both receive carbon copies of IRS Form 1098-C, so there's 100% transparency about the actual sale price and date.
Yes, we apply the same effective process to golf car donation in Calabasas, boat donation, SUV donation and more. Do you own a recreational vehicle you haven't used in 2 years or more, taking up space in a garage or costing you storage and maintenance fees?

You can even give commercial vehicles like a bus or a van, construction equipment or manufacturing equipment including a forklift, crane or anything else.
Calabasas is synonymous with a familiar symbol of abundance - the pumpkin. You know there are needs in the community, and perhaps you'd like to add to the abundant lives of others.

Do you love to help kids? Support the Ronald McDonald House! If you remember the life-changing skills you picked up in boy scouts or girl scouts, it's your chance to give back. You can donate a vehicle to your local Girl Scouts.
Many donors are passionate about supporting a local church or parish. Catholic Charities provides services ranging from adoption to senior care in your local community, and helps respond to disasters. Even if your faith-based organization hasn't received car donations before, we can help. Or perhaps you'd prefer to donate a car to the Salvation Army in Calabasas, which supports such programs as disaster relief, along with their local neighborhood programs and stores.

While many people know the organization for its thrift shops, lots of local residents get help with vocational training and finding jobs, or benefit from Goodwill's other programs.
