Wondering what happens to dear old Betsy? Judging from our telephone calls, many people do want to know where their old car goes, so we thought we’d share what happens here when a car donation arrives. Whether it’s a relatively new car or possibly a very old family friend, it gets star treatment at Cars 4 Causes®.
Cars for each kind are donatedWhen you donate, you determine what charity benefits from your automobile donation, so we make sure we make the most of the donation for both your and you charity. (See our list of over 13,400 charities.) Some cars not designated having a charity enter our Give-Away Program that directly benefits needy individuals.
Choosing the Best Route for Your Car Donation
We certainly have our own sales locations where we assess the car to figure out its route.
When it is cost-effective, we make major or minor mechanical repairs, after which we detail the cars and advertise them on the market. The trucks, cars, vans and other vehicles are sold, and they move on to their new owners.
Some cars go to auction, as this is the most effective route for them, for the best return.
We recycle them through salvage and scrap channels if the cars are not road-worthy. The scrap is recycled, turning up next inside a surprisingly wide range of products – your new bicycles, your new appliances, new cars.
Your Tax Deduction
In the completion of some of these sales processes, you receive a tax deduction receipt to the donation. Because of these evaluation and sales processes, Cars 4 Causes® The Charity That Gives To Charities® receives the highest average return for you in the marketplace and! You benefit from this success within your tax write-off, and your charity benefits by using a corresponding donation.
So, whether it’s old Betsy or that slightly used car within the garage, your donation is honored and appreciated all down the donation route. Thank you for your generosity.
