Donald B.
You do fine work
By Donald B., Grand Prairie  TX (I donated a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

It couldn't have been any easier! The whole thing came off without a hitch, and I scored a win-win. The proceeds will benefit some kiddos, and my tax return just became a little easier to swallow. You do fine work.

John M.
All you need is your title and keys
By John M., Katy  TX (I donated a 1995 Mercury Mystique)

It is very easy. All you need is your title and the keys,. You need to take your license plates down. You do not have to do anything. Enjoy 3 days and 2 nights hotel in your vacation, and you can claim 500 tax deductible.

Winston S.
I am a repeat donor to Kars4Kids
By Winston S., Spring  TX (I donated a 2002 Ford F-150)

I am a repeat donator to Kars4Kids. It is always fast and easy. I call, they come, I sign over the title and they send a receipt for the vehicle. My wife has Liked Kars4Kids on FaceBook. I highly recommend them.

Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Fun Holiday Getaways

Watch a whole lot of people having fun in the Kars4Kids holiday retreat video. Everyone needs a vacation to recharge their batteries. But not everyone has the wherewithal to get away. Kars4Kids makes dreams come true, sponsoring vacations for children in need along with their mentor volunteers for a week of unlimited fun.

Ensuring Academic Success

Our number one priority at Kars4Kids is to make a success of every child we help. Getting a high school diploma is in large measure, a child‘s insurance policy for the future. We carefully match tutors and mentors with the children we help, to ensure kids will make it through school with flying colors.

Still have questions?

The amount you can claim from the IRS as a tax deduction depends on the category applicable to you:
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a) The value of your vehicle up to $500. It is up to the donor to determine the fair market value.
b) The amount we sell your vehicle for - if it is more than $500.

Kars4kids is a classified 501(c)(3) charity organization. You can check with your tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit. The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. For a more detailed overview the IRS publishes a Donors Guide to Car Donation.
We accept the following donations: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, RV (motor home), commercial, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, and fleet donations. Sorry no kids.
We can pick up a vehicle without a title in Texas. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

In the following counties you may not need to sign any paperwork at all. Just provide a proof of ownership (such as copy of registration or insurance card): Angelina, Austin, Grimes, Jasper, Jefferson, Madison, Montgomery, Newton, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Waller, Washington, Wharton
In almost all scenarios Kars4kids will apply for the new title for you. We'll handle all the paperwork and pay the title fees too.
If you'd prefer you may apply for a new title on your own. Here's how:
Complete Form VTR-34, Application for a Certified Copy of Title.

Texas Title

You will need to sign the front, and the back of the title document. The sample document to the left of this paragraph has two blue arrows. Sign where both arrows appear using the name listed on the front page of your car title. The title document should be given to the tow truck driver at the time your car is collected.
1. Remove all plates
All plates must be removed from your car prior to towing. It is simple and free to transfer your license plates to your new vehicle. The TxDMV encourages you to transfer your plates because it protects you.

2. Registration Sticker
Remove the windshield registration sticker.

3. File a vehicle transfer notification
When a Texas-titled vehicle is sold or traded in, the seller needs to file a vehicle transfer notification.

4. Cancel your insurance
Cancel your insurance after your car has been towed.

Pick-n-pull is in Texas, where everything is bigger than life, so it‘s no wonder this towing service has not one but two locations, one in San Antonio, and one more in Austin. Each location services a 30 mile radius, so Pick-n-pull covers a Texas-sized territory with its seven towtrucks-five in San Antonio and two in Austin.

Pick-n-pull has had a lot of unusual towing situations, but the one that sticks out in the owner‘s mind is the time they towed away a car only to discover a dog had been left inside the car. It was the middle of the summer, a hot day, and the poor dog was miserable. The towing people tried to give the dog some water, but the dog growled and tried to bite the well-meaning staff. Worried about the dog in the terrible heat, they contacted the owner, "Excuse us for calling, Ma‘am, but is this dog we have here yours? Can you please come and get it because it won‘t come out of the car and it‘s so hot."
