Say Goodbye to Those Troublesome Car-Related Expenses!

Tired of seeing your old rusty car squatting in your driveway? Getting frustrated at the thought of the money you’re wasting on the repair, maintenance, and insurance of a vehicle you don’t even drive anymore? Do yourself a favor by letting it go once and for all.

We’re not suggesting you put it up for sale. Rather, our suggestion is much more satisfying and rewarding. It will help you save money while enabling you to touch the lives of people in need. Here’s our suggestion: Donate that car to charity!


Here’s How Donating Your Vehicle to a Charity Can Save You Money

Donating your unwanted car to a charitable organization will help not only its beneficiaries but yourself as well in several ways — one of which is by saving you cash. Here are four ways of saving money by making a car donation:

  1. No more car-related expenses.

One of the biggest expenses that comes with owning a car is its maintenance and repair costs. As your car ages, it starts to require more frequent repairs, the costs of which can quickly add up to a humongous amount. Fortunately, you can stop worrying about these costs when you donate that vehicle.

  1. No need to pay for insurance anymore.

If you’re not using your car anymore, there’s no need to have it insured. Car insurance can be a significant expense, especially if you have an older car that requires more coverage. By donating your car, you’ll be able to cancel your insurance policy and save some money every month as a result.

  1. Stop paying for storage and parking fees.

If you’re allocating a budget for the storage and parking fees of your vehicle, you don’t have to do that anymore if you donate that vehicle.

  1. Get huge tax savings.

You’ll get to claim the highest possible tax deduction, which can mean huge tax savings, when you donate your old car to a charity. Depending on how the charity uses your donation, you may be able to claim as your tax deduction the full selling price of your vehicle or its fair market value.

Our team will have your vehicle auctioned off to generate funds for the community-based life improvement programs of the Goodwill organizations serving your area.

Your local Goodwill nonprofits use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with job and skills training, employment opportunities, scholarships, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, family support, educational services, financial assistance, and many other essential support services.

You’ll also benefit from your generous donation with the substantial rewards that will come your way. These include your entitlement to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. You’ll also get a professional pickup and towing service from us at no cost to you and wherever your vehicle is located in the country.
