Truck Donations: Show Impoverished Americans You Care

Do you have a worn-out truck that’s been collecting dust and rust in your garage? Have you been dying to get rid of it, but you just don’t like the idea of selling it? Here’s an excellent alternative: Donate it to us!

Trucks that are handed over to Goodwill Car Donations turn into powerful life-changing instruments for disadvantaged men and women across the nation. These are Americans who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, and other personal barriers to success.

We sell donated trucks and other vehicles and distribute all proceeds to local Goodwill organizations, enabling them to support their beneficiaries through their various programs and services.

Your truck donation will help underprivileged folks in your community gain access to free training sessions, seminars, workshops, and employment programs. These increase their chances of landing stable jobs. They can also benefit from Goodwill’s vocational and educational services, internship programs, financial support, livelihood assistance, and other critical community-building support services.

Your donation will surely uplift the lives of more people in your community, enabling them to enjoy financial stability as they get to harness their full potential.

Perks to Expect from Goodwill

Your truck donation will do wonders not only to your destitute neighbors but also to you as a donor. Indeed, good deeds come with great rewards!

Expect these fantastic perks to come your way when you make a truck donation to Goodwill:

  • A maximized tax write-off
  • Free vehicle towing at your convenience
  • Zero paperwork for you
  • Avoid hassles of selling a used truck
  • More savings when you stop paying for your truck’s repair, maintenance, storage, insurance, and registration fees.
  • Free up space in your garage
  • A deep sense of fulfillment knowing that your truck donation will help enrich lives


Our Easy and Convenient Donation Experience

We at Goodwill Car Donations only want what’s best for our generous donors. Hence, we’ve set up a donation process that’s quick, easy, and convenient for them.

Here’s a brief guide to the donation process we follow in our truck donations program:

  1. Contact us.

Get in touch with us when you’re ready to make a truck donation. Provide us basic details about your vehicle and let us know a date, time, and place you prefer for the pickup. We will then coordinate with a professional towing company to haul your truck away.

  1. We pick up your truck.

Be sure you’ve removed all your personal items inside your vehicle on the day of pickup. We’ll issue you a towing receipt before we take your truck. With this receipt, you no longer have any liability on your truck from that point onward. You can use it to terminate your vehicle’s local DMV registration and insurance coverage.

  1. You receive your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll have your truck sold in one of the top auction houses in our network. A few weeks after it is sold, we’ll send you by mail or email your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. The receipt will show your vehicle’s final selling price, which will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim. You will need to present this document when you file your itemized federal tax return in the next tax season.

That’s everything to know about our donation process! If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach us at 866-233-8586. You may also send us a message here. For more information, check out our FAQs page.
