Troy, New York Car Donations: Impact the Lives of Disadvantaged Fellow Citizens with Your Old Vehicle

Do you have a worn-out car that’s only giving you trouble on the road no matter how many times you’ve sent it to the auto repair shop? If you’ve finally reached the end of your patience but still unsure on how to ditch your clunker, let us help you.

The best thing you can do with that car is to hand it over to Goodwill Car Donations through our Troy, New York car donations program. We will sell your car for you and get the highest possible price for it, which you can get in the form of a tax deduction. That is definitely much better than trying to sell your car yourself, which will only bring you lots of headaches with no guaranteed good returns.

That’s just one of the many rewards you’ll get for participating in our humanitarian mission. We’ll tell you more about this later.

However, more than the personal rewards you’ll get, your car donation will impact the lives of the numerous disadvantaged individuals and families in your city. We auction off all the vehicles donated to us and use the proceeds to fund our employment-focused programs. Such programs provide our beneficiaries with such free services as skills training, on-the-job training, and job placements. Goodwill career centers help them in finding the most suitable jobs for them based on their skills, create their CVs and resumes, prepare them for interviews, get them ready for work, and provide E-learning.

Thus, your participation in our Troy, New York car donations program will enable these individuals to surmount their limitations and reach their full potential. The skills training and mentoring services they receive will help prepare them for positions in various industries such as banking, food service, retail, packing and assembly, health care, and many more. We will work with them individually so that we can identify their strength and provide the proper training and support services based on their abilities.

How to Donate a Car to Goodwill

We know you have more important things to do. That’s why we specifically designed our Troy, New York car donations process to be quick, easy, and convenient. This will certainly save you tons of time and effort.

Here’s a guide to our three-step car donation process:

Step 1: Reach out to us.

Call us at our toll-free 24/7 hotline 866-233-8586 or fill out our online donation form, which you can find on the right side of this page. We’ll ask you your name, phone number, and email address, as well as your vehicle’s make, model, mileage, and VIN. Give us a brief description of your vehicle’s condition and tell us if you have its title with you.

Step 2: Schedule your vehicle’s pickup.

We’ll call you back after verifying the information you gave. We’ll then ask you when, what time, and where you prefer us to come over to pick up your vehicle. We’ll arrange with a licensed towing company in your area to handle the job. You need not pay for this since the towing fee is on us.

The towing company can haul away your car as quickly as 24 or 48 hours after your initial call to us. Before the tow truck driver leaves with your car onboard, the driver will give you a towing receipt. This document releases you from any liabilities on your vehicle from that point onward. It also grants you the right to cancel your car’s registration and insurance coverage and properly dispose of your license plates.

Step 3: Receive your tax deduction receipt.

Once we have your car in our possession, we’ll auction it off. We will exert our best effort to sell your car at its highest possible price for our mutual advantage: bigger proceeds for us and a bigger tax deduction for you.

Several days following the sale of your car, we’ll send by mail your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. Don’t lose this piece of paper since you’ll need it in claiming your tax deduction. Generally, the amount printed on the receipt is the exact amount you can deduct from your taxable income when you file your itemized federal income tax return for the next tax-filing season.
