It’s important to understand what’s happening with your vehicle donation in Birmingham. Most car donation programs simply have your vehicle towed to the nearest auction, where it sells to the first bidder. That will only bring rock bottom prices. This model ensures that your tax deduction will be a lot less that what your car is actually worth.
Our unique operating model maximizes the value of your tax deduction by either making improvements to your vehicle or finding the perfect buyer willing to pay competative prices for your vehicle. By controlling how your car looks, runs, and is sold, we manage to sometimes make gains in the total sale price. Those who appreciate its true value are willing to pay top dollar, rather than low-ball dealer or recylcer offers. It is our top priority to give you the BEST tax deduction possible. The IRS allows you to deduct the FULL SALE PRICE of your donated vehicle (based on your tax bracket and other information we suggest you discuss with a CPA). We just want to make sure that your tax deduction is the highest possible based on our attention to detail and the individual care we put into each vehicle donation.
