Hammond, Indiana Car Donations

Cars are never cheap. Aside from the initial price of buying one, there’s also the maintenance cost to reckon with. As a car gets older, so does the cost of maintaining it. If you have a vehicle that’s several years old, you must be having headaches by now, considering that older vehicles are much harder to maintain and keep in shape compared to modern ones. This is mainly because of how they were built and the technological limitations during their time.

You’ve probably considered selling your old car or checking if it’s still possible to trade it in for a new one. How about donating it to Goodwill Car Donations instead? Our Hammond, Indiana car donations program will use your generous donation to fund critical programs for the benefit of the disadvantaged individuals and families in your community.

This way, you won’t have to worry anymore about repair or maintenance costs or the potential troubles you’d face if you decide to sell your clunker yourself.

How Your Donation Will Benefit the Needy

When you make a Hammond, Indiana car donation, we will auction it off and use the proceeds to help the mission-focused programs of Goodwill organizations in your local area. These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations cater to persons with disabilities and other disadvantages, providing them with the following essential services:

  • Skills and job training
  • Career development and placement
  • Scholarships
  • Youth employment
  • Livelihood assistance
  • Disability benefits
  • Other community-building support services

Your vehicle donation will enable these disadvantaged individuals to overcome their limitations, break free from poverty, and gain financial independence.

Why Donate?

By making a car donation to us in Hammond, Indiana, you’ll be making a difference in your own community. You’ll also enjoy a number of perks. Here are some of them:

  • Get the maximum tax write-off

One of the best perks for donating to Goodwill is receiving the highest possible tax deduction. We do this by making sure your vehicle is sold at its highest possible price during the auction. Since your contribution is 100-percent tax-deductible, you can claim the full selling price of your vehicle as your tax deduction.

  • We take care of towing.

Once you decide to hand over a vehicle to Goodwill Car Donations, we’ll send a licensed towing service to pick up your donation for free.

  • You won’t handle any paperwork.

You won’t need to touch a single document or fill out any paperwork when you team up with us. We’ll take care of the processing of all donation documents.

  • Quit paying for repairs and maintenance.

When you donate your vehicle to us, you don’t have to spruce it up before you hand it over to us – we’ll take it as it is! Don’t worry – we can still manage to squeeze out some value even from vehicles that need a lot of work.

  • Have a clutter-free garage.

You can finally use the space that your old beater has been hogging for ages. You can finally have the parking space you need for your brand-new car!

Our Quick and Convenient Donation Process

Making a Hammond, Indiana car donation to support Goodwill organizations won’t take much of your time. Our donation process is quick and convenient. Here’s a simple guide to our three-step donation process:

  1. Contact us.

We have an online donation form that you can fill out. You also have the choice of making your donation by phone. You can call us anytime at 866-233-8586. We’ll need your contact information and a few details regarding the vehicle you’re offering to donate, such as its make, model, year, VIN, general working condition, and the availability of its title.

If you have lost or can’t find your vehicle’s title, let us know about it. We’ll gladly guide you on how you can obtain a replacement copy of your title quickly so we can move forward with your donation.

  1. Schedule your free vehicle pickup.

If you’ve filled out our online donation form, we’ll give you a call on the same day to confirm the details you’ve shared with us. We’ll then ask you your preferred, date, time, and place for us to pick up your vehicle. We’ll send a professional towing crew to do the job. If you have to be somewhere else during the pickup, that’s fine with us for as long as you don’t forget to leave your vehicle’s title and keys inside the car for the tow truck driver to pick up along with your vehicle.

We’ll issue you a towing receipt before hauling off your vehicle. This receipt releases you from any liability on your vehicle from that point forward. The receipt also enables you to cancel your vehicle’s DMV registration and insurance coverage.

  1. Get your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll promptly send your donated vehicle to one of the best auction houses in our nationwide network. Within 30 days following the sale of your vehicle, we’ll mail to you your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. You’ll need this receipt in itemizing your tax deductions prior to filing your tax return in the next tax season.
