Why should I donate my car in Albany instead of selling it?

Maybe you’d like to drive a model with a crash prevention system or nice leather seats and great sound. Whatever needs improving, it’s a sweeter deal with a vehicle donation in Albany – especially if there’s a cause that’s close to your heart.

If you’re losing confidence in your car’s ability to get you to work because you’re constantly at Capital Tech with increasingly more repairs, it may be time for a change. An article on the Edmunds site says that if you’re spending a lot of money fixing your car, it might be wiser to upgrade. You don’t want to spend more on repairs than you would on a car payment.albany3

Do you feel the pressure to drive an environmentally friendly vehicle? If you really want to drill down by looking at the advantages of electric cars – even with solar capability, Solarize Albany has some arguments for taking the leap.

If you typically do a trade-in, we have some suggestions. You probably know you lose some of your vehicle’s value. Dealer trade-ins only get you about half of your vehicle’s value. However, with a car charity donation in Albany you can write off 100% of the market price of your donation car.

A car, truck or SUV donation in Albany has a threefold benefit – you can support your favorite charity; someone gives your old car a new life; and you get a tax break.

In about 5 minutes, you’ve done it! Just make a quick call to us at 855-520-2100 or donate online. We take care of everything, all the details from pick-up to title transfer.

albany1If you’ve ever sold anything on Albany Craigslist or AutoTrader, you know it’s a bear. When we handle it for you, however, you’re free from that headache. We do a lot more than just clean up your car. We get it ready for sale, find a buyer, and even finish the paperwork for you. That leaves you free to spend time with family or do something fun instead of cleaning and taking pictures of your car.

When you donate a car to charity, you want to give extra attention to the company you choose to handle it. At Cars2Charities, donating a car in Albany is totally transparent. Within 30 days of the sale of your car, you and the nonprofit you choose receive the proper paperwork, compliant with IRS regulations, so you have the Form 1098-C for your tax preparer.

How can I get the best car donation tax deduction in Albany?

When you drop your paperwork at your CPA, do you ever get lectured that you need more deductions? Here’s your chance!

You don’t have to be in the top tax bracket to have a significant write-off. At Cars2Charities we don’t just pick up donation vehicles and haul them off to be sold to the first buyer. We tow them to our experts to be assessed for necessary changes. Any alterations we make tend to raise the selling price by about 25-50%. And because your tax write-off is based on the sale price of your car, you benefit and so does the charity.albany4
