3 Easy Steps

How to donate a car

No extra paperwork. No headache. No cost.
Our experienced team takes care of everything for you, from towing to title transfer. You just have to wave goodbye.
  1. 1Tell us about your car

    It takes 2 minutes to donate online or by calling . We’ll take some basic info about your car, including the year, make, model and condition. We can accept almost any vehicle regardless of condition, usually even if you don’t have the title.

  2. 2Schedule a pickup time

    Our local towing company will be in touch within 24 hours to schedule a convenient pickup time. Your car can be picked up as soon as that or the next day. You don’t have to be there for pickup – just leave the keys and signed title, if you have it, in the car. You’ll receive a temporary receipt as confirmation of pickup.

  3. 3Tax receipt & vacation

    We get to work right away selling your car through our network of auto auctions and resellers. This takes about 2-4 weeks as we ensure your car is sold for the best price possible. As soon as it sells, we’ll email your tax-deductible receipt and complimentary 2-night hotel voucher.
