What Makes Cars2Charities the Best Car Donation Programs?

at the beachWe've Loved Cars for Over 35 Years! Caring for cars is our core business and we're pretty good at it. In fact, when it comes to examining and fixing cars up for resale, we've become quite the experts. How many other charity car programs have their own technicians? How many others have a comprehensive guideline to determine the best way to improve your car's value? Just us, it seems! 

We Work with Retail Buyers —Not Auction Sites. Most programs send your car directly to auction, where it's typically purchased by a wholesaler looking to earn a profit. But not us. Not only do our technicians enhance your donation, but the fact that we market to retail buyers who appreciate the remaining life your gifted vehicle may still represent means your charity gets more support and you get a bigger vehicle donation tax deduction. We often match older vehicles with collectors, or a specially equipped van with a buyer who has special needs for example. So call and tell us your “wants". Especially if a vehicle holds sentimental value, we do our best to find a buyer who'll appreciate it as you do.

Cars2Charities is considered the best car donation company for many other reasons too: 

  1. We make it easy!
  2. We have live donation experts who can answer any and all your questions
  3. We offer free towing
  4. We add value by improving how the car runs, looks, and sounds
  5. We know what buyers want
  6. We maximize your tax write-off
  7. We let our donors decide where their car donation proceeds go
  8. We offer hundreds of charities to choose from
  9. You can add your own favorite charity to the list!
  10. We implement our donor's feedback

We've Loved Cars for Over 35 Years! Caring for cars is our core business and we're pretty good at it. In fact, when it comes to examining and fixing cars up for resale, we've become quite the experts. How many other charity car programs have their own technicians? How many others have a comprehensive guideline to determine the best way to improve your car's value? Just us, it seems! Our vehicle donation program is unique because we maximize your donation by making necessary alterations to the vehicle. In doing so, the car’s value usually goes up about 25-50% as a result of the changes. 

In addition to effectively handling car donations within the USA, it is our mission to spread love, kindness, and generosity to others.

Benefits of Donating to Charity

By donating, you can share your passion for change and draw attention to what you consider important. In return, you receive a maximized ax deduction, and the comfort of knowing your donation sparked change and amelioration.

Charities are not the only ones who benefit. By donating a car in Albany, you’re part of a win/win proposition since vehicle donations to charity are considered by the Internal Revenue Service and the State to be COMPLETELY TAX DEDUCTIBLE. 

Our value-enhancing services allow you to deduct the full sale price off your vehicle as a charity donation. We operate with full transparency between donor and charity by making sure everyone has a copy of the IRS regulated paperwork — including the IRS Form 1098-C which you will receive within 30 days after the sale of your car.

Both you and the charity will receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30-50 days of the sale of your vehicle, making the transaction transparent to all parties. Plus, we do all the work. There’s no standing in lines at the DMV or dealing with the paperwork to transfer the title. 

Need some more info? The IRS guidelines for tax deductions is a great resource. You can also learn more about our vehicle donation program by watching our videos, which focus on frequently asked questions that we've grouped by topic.
