Fleet Vehicle Donations: Help Disadvantaged People Get Back on Their Feet
Do you own a fleet of vehicles that have fallen into a state of disrepair? No need to fret. There is a way for you to put them to good use even after they have already served their purpose.
Fleet vehicles — those cars, vans, and other types of vehicles operated by car rental companies, taxicab firms, delivery services, public bus companies, and police departments — are among the vehicles that experience the most wear and tear on the road.
They are used by companies to deliver goods and ferry passengers from point to point and are often used with very minimal rest before they are driven for the next rotation. Because of the nature of their usage, fleet vehicles are exposed to the elements for the majority of their lifespan. Some companies consider their monthly maintenance a luxury. That’s why when it’s time to finally retire them, they’re already in a bad condition.
Defective fleet vehicles present a major problem to many operators since having them repaired and replaced with new spare parts will eat away at their profits. Hauling them away to a junkyard is also not a good option since it will mean the loss of a substantial investment. Besides, even towing them to the junkyard will also cost money.
That’s why, some firms simply put their vehicles in garages, allowing them to gather dust and take up space for extended periods.
The good news is that these fleet vehicles can still serve a worthy purpose that will greatly benefit disabled and other disadvantaged Americans. That will happen when you team up with us at Goodwill Car Donations and take part in our fleet vehicle donations program.
We will auction off each of your vehicles and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations in your area. The money from your fleet car donation will help these nonprofits in providing their beneficiaries with job training, employment and learning opportunities, livelihood assistance, and other critical community-building support services.
Why Donate to Goodwill?
Participating in our fleet vehicle and cargo van donations program is your best option not only because you will be helping thousands of individuals uplift their lives but also because you’ll get your own set of enticing benefits for your charitable contribution. Here are some of them:
- Lift people from poverty.
You can enable disadvantaged people to get the skills and training they need to be able to find decent and stable jobs. This will free them from the grip of poverty as they harness their full potential.
- Boost your company’s public image.
Donating your company’s fleet vehicles to charity will surely boost your company’s public image. Making such donations can be part of your company’s corporate social responsibility.
- Save money — lots of it!
Donating your company’s vehicles will save you a lot of money as you no longer have to allocate budget for your vehicles’ maintenance, repairs, insurance, and registration.
- Get maximized tax deductions.
With our huge audience, years of trusted service, and millions of potential buyers coming in to look for used vehicles, the chances of selling your vehicles at the best prices and the soonest time possible are very high. This means maximized tax deductions for you since the selling prices of your vehicle will determine the amount of tax deductions you can claim.
- Get free towing services.
You won’t need to worry about how to dispose of your fleet vehicles. We’ll take care of removing them from your company premises at no cost to you.
- No stressful paperwork on your part.
You can avoid the hassles of doing paperwork because our team will efficiently take care of all the documentation related to your fleet vehicle and old school bus donations.
- Avoid headaches of selling run-down vehicles.
Selling old fleet vehicles is far from easy. You’d be lucky to sell them for the prices you were hoping for.
