To donate a vehicle, please complete the donor information form found here. Once we have secured the necessary vehicle and donor information, we will assign the vehicle to one of our towing vendors who will contact you within 24-48 hours to schedule a convenient time to pick up your vehicle at no charge to you. If you are not contacted promptly or need to expedite the process please e-mail us or call our customer service representatives at 1-877-CHARITY (1-877-242-7489). (Please help keep this service free by using e-mail instead of calling whenever possible.)
Only after the donor has been contacted by our towing vendor and scheduled the pick-up should you execute the title reassignment. In preparing your vehicle’s title for transfer, sign your name to state “seller” exactly as it appears on the title. Where it states “buyer,” please enter the name “Charity Cars, Inc.” Address: 407 Wekiva Springs Road Suite 201, Longwood, FL 32779. The tow truck driver will pick up your vehicle as well as your title. If you are uncomfortable about handing your title to the tow truck driver, you can make prior arrangements with the 1-877-CHARITY (1-877-242-7489) customer service representative to mail your title to Charity Cars’ headquarters.
Concurrently upon receiving the vehicle and donor information, Charity Cars, Inc. will mail the donor a receipt that may be used for tax purposes (the receipt is only valid if we successfully pick up the vehicle and transferable title). According to the IRS, donors who itemize may deduct up to $500.00, or if the vehicle sells for more, the greater amount. If your vehicle is sold for more than $500.00, we will mail you an additional receipt stating the greater amount you may deduct.
Charity Cars, Inc. is a 501-C-3 non-profit charity (Federal ID # 59-3362703), and donations to it are tax-deductible. (Donors are always advised to consult with their tax advisors.)
