One of the most commonly asked questions in the car donations industry is “How do I donate a car?” The simple fact is that although many people would like to make an automobile donation, most people don’t know where to start. At Cars Helping Charities, we know that donating a car is a very intimate process and you should feel comfortable through every step of the way. Therefore, throughout the past 10 years, we have worked to make donating a car easier for you, the donor. With that said, below, you will find the steps that you should take when you are ready to make your donation!

Step 1: Choose Your Charity: The first step in the donations process is to choose a charity to which you would like make a donation. Although you may feel as though you are donating a worthless junk car, the truth is that your junk or running car donation will bring in hundreds if not thousands of dollars in proceeds that will be donated to the charity of your choice. Therefore, it is important to take the time to choose a charity that makes you feel good about your donation. Choosing a charity is simple here at Cars Helping Charities. All you will need to do is scroll to the bottom of this page and click “Charities.” Once you click this, you will be taken to a list of charities that we have checked out and will do great things with the money provided through your vehicle donation.

Step 2: Start The Car Donation Process: The next step once you have chosen the benefit charity is to start the donation process. At Cars Helping Charities, you have two options when you are ready to start the process. The first option is to fill out the Get Started form that you will find on the right side of each page in this website. This form will give us all of the information about your car donation. We will simply make a confirmation call (within minutes) to confirm the donation and schedule a good time to pick up the vehicle. If you are one of the many people who would rather talk to someone than fill a form when donating a car, simply call the toll free customer service phone number that you will find in the upper right and corner of each page within our website.

Step 3: Ready Your Car And Title For Pick Up: Once you have spoken to one of our representatives and scheduled a time for pick up, the final step to your car donation is to get it ready to be picked up. This process is as easy as signing your title, and leaving that title and the keys in a safe inside the car. That’s it! Don’t worry about washing it or putting gas in it—we will do the rest!
