Carmel, Indiana Car Donations

When you want nothing more than a hassle-free way to dispose of a vehicle that you no longer want or need, but you’re feeling overwhelmed and you don’t know where to begin, consider donating your vehicle to Goodwill Car Donations. When you take part in our Carmel, Indiana car donations program, you and the disadvantaged members of your community will find the means to achieve what you’ve been hoping for.

We will auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to help provide funding for the Goodwill organizations nearest your location. These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations deliver critical programs and services that are designed to help disadvantaged individuals and families overcome barriers to employment and sustainable life.

With your charitable contribution, more lives will be touched with a renewed sense of hope for a brighter future.

How to Take Part in Carmel, Indiana Car Donations

What sets Goodwill Car Donations apart from vehicle donation platforms is that we honor our commitment to serving our donors well. That is why we’ve come up with a seamless donation process so that you can have a hassle-free and satisfying giving experience.

Here is a brief guide to this process:

  • STEP 1: Contact us.

Ready to donate a car to Goodwill Car Donations? You’ll need to tell us a few details about the vehicle you’re donating by filling out our online donation form or by calling us at 866-233-8586.

  • STEP 2: We’ll schedule your FREE pickup.

After verifying your submitted information, one of our donation specialists will call you back to set up a schedule for your vehicle’s pickup. You can tell us your preferred time and date for this. We’ll then send a licensed tow truck to your location of choice to haul your car away for free.

Before we take your vehicle, we’ll issue you a towing receipt. This document releases you from any liability from that point forward. With your towing receipt, you can now cancel your car’s insurance coverage and have your car de-registered at the local DMV.

  • STEP 3: You’ll receive your tax-deductible receipt.

Upon acceptance of your donated vehicle, we’ll have it auctioned off. Within 30 days following its sale, we’ll mail to you your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. You’ll; need this to claim your tax deduction when it’s time to pay your tax bill.
