Elgin, Illinois Car Donations

When you’re ready to part with a vehicle you own, consider making an Elgin, Illinois car donation. That same truck that no longer runs or the car that’s been sitting in the driveway can be turned into vital funding for programs that are making a big impact in your area. When you donate a car in Elgin, IL, you effectively give back to your hometown!

How does donating a vehicle in Elgin, IL work? Here’s a look at the basics of an Elgin car donation.

Vehicles We Accept

We are glad to accept almost any type of vehicle at our Elgin location, from cars to motorcycles to boats. The vehicle doesn’t even need to be in working order when it’s donated. Because we come to you and haul away your vehicle, it doesn’t matter if it’s running.

To give you an idea of the kinds of cars we take, here are some examples:

  • Cars
  • SUVs
  • RVs
  • Trucks
  • Vans
  • Minivans
  • Trailers
  • Jet Skis
  • Motorcycles
  • Boats

When you aren’t sure whether or not a specific vehicle can qualify, just ask. We’ll even take airplanes for donation, if you have them.
