Bus Donations: Touch Lives While Doing Your Company a Huge Favor

Is your company planning to dispose of its fleet of outdated buses that are about to be phased out? What if we told you that those vehicles can serve as powerful instruments that can transform the lives of disadvantaged Americans in your area? That will happen when you donate them to us at Goodwill Car Donations.

Whether you’re the owner of these buses or you represent the owner, you and your company will certainly leave a lasting impact in your city when you hand over those buses to us. We will auction them off and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations in your area. These IRS-approved 501(c)3 nonprofits use the funding coming from vehicle donations to help finance the services they provide to their beneficiaries.

Your bus donation will fund several life-enriching programs such as the following:

  • Job training and placement
  • Career development
  • Youth mentoring and employment
  • Education for students with disabilities
  • Family-strengthening projects
  • Income-sensitive housing for senior citizens
  • Barrier-free housing for people with disabilities
  • Vehicle assistance

Before you know it, your community will be blessed with more productive and self-reliant individuals, and you’ll be credited for helping make this possible.


The Bus Types We Usually Accept

While other bus donation programs only take buses that are in good running condition, we’re delighted to let you know that we’re not applying the same rule. We at Goodwill accept all kinds of buses regardless of their age and condition. We accept even buses that have faulty parts. Trust us, we won’t mind!

Here’s a list of the different kinds of buses we normally receive from our donors:

  • Shuttle buses
  • Mini-buses
  • Company buses
  • School buses
  • Single-decker buses
  • Double-decker buses
  • Mini-coaches
  • Trolleybuses
  • Neighborhood buses
  • Off-road buses
  • Low-floor buses
  • Hybrid buses
  • Gyrobuses
  • Articulated buses

You can donate to us other types of vehicles as well. To learn more about this, check out this page.


The Process of Donating Buses

Another reason that makes Goodwill a great online donation platform is that we have a donation process that’s quick, hassle-free, and convenient. With us, you won’t deal with any sort of time-consuming paperwork. You won’t also waste your time looking for an affordable towing company — we got you fully covered here and you won’t have to shell out any amount.

Here’s a simple guide to our bus donation process:

Step 1: Get in touch with us.

There are two ways to reach us: Either give us a call or fill out our online form. We’ll ask for a few basic details about your buses. After verifying the information you shared, we’ll then get back to you to set your preferred schedule for the pickup of your buses.

Step 2: Part ways with your buses.

On the day we start collecting your donations, be sure that you’ve removed all company materials from your buses. Have the vehicles’ proof of ownership ready as well. We’ll issue you a towing receipt for each of the buses you donated. With these receipts, you’re now free to cancel the registration and insurance coverage of each of your buses.

Step 3: Check your mail for your tax-deductible receipts.

We’ll have your buses auction off. A few weeks after their sale, we’ll deliver your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipts to your specified address. The receipts will enable your company to claim hefty tax deductions in the next tax season.
