Used Car Donation – Where Do You Begin?

Todays Date: November 21, 2018

Got an unwanted vehicle that you want to get rid of? Not sure about what to do? Let us give you the facts on California car donation. Now before you go handing over the keys to your car, lets have a look at the facts, and ask some questions. This will only take a moment, there are a lot of things to think aboutfirst.

The two most important things to consider, and ask yourself are as follows. Does the vehicle I want to donate require extensive maintenance? Is it in that bad a shape to even donate? Donating a car or vehicle that needs repairs to a charity just to get rid of it isn’t a nice thing to do. Giving one that’s going to fall apart in the first ten miles is even worse, so don’t do it.

Who needs the vehicle the most? This isn’t an easy question to answer to yourself, but imperative if you want your donation to be of most benefit. Why should I even bother? Because there are a lot of people who could use a good vehicle. Besides, if you have one you no longer need, its just gathering rust.

Finally the most important question. To whom should I give it? You’ve compiled your lists of charities that need a car from churches, to community outreach programs. But in the end you only have one vehicle, and you can only give it to one groups regardless of how much they all need one. If you want to make an impact globally, then give it to the Red Cross, or another organization fighting world problems.

If none of these interest you, then find a student who needs one. They don’t have a lot of money and can’t afford a car by themselves. Ask yourself if any neighbors need a car. Also see if there’s a homeless person who needs a chance to relocate and get back on their feet. Finally you could ask inside your own family.

Many cities and charity groups will either pay cash for vehicle donations, or will give donors a tax credit. This is to encourage the type of people who don’t believe in giving to those in need. For others there is the feeling they get from having done something to help the disadvantaged – as well as the tax credit.

Medical research groups always need cars, as well as outreach programs. Cars, trucks and motorcycles are a commodity for them. A single car helps out immensely, far more than the average person can imagine.

If you’re really involved in the community though, there’s one choice that you’ve probably missed. It has been right under your nose the whole time, it’s your city. Yes your own town, you can save your city some cash by donating your vehicle to them for government workers to use on daily errands. This will save the city a few thousand that they can use for other things.

Have you asked your questions, and thought about the choices? Compiled your lists and checked them? Have you made sure your car is in operating condition, and not falling apart? Good, it can be a very mindboggling process, but I hope this has helped.
