How does getting a car donated work?
Our car donation program is designed to accept vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Boats, collector cars, ATVs – you name it! We tap into an extensive network of tow companies to ensure towing is free of charge to all donors across the U.S. These companies are vetted for quality before ever interacting with your donors. Finally, our Vehicle Donation Cloud runs an algorithm on donated vehicles to optimize your revenue. Our focus on data analytics is a premium feature that many vehicle donation organizations lack, and something that will make acquiring donors for your non profit easier than ever.
Who handles tax documents if we choose to partner with you?
Our system saves you time and stress by creating, filing, and distributing all required tax documents to the IRS. We also process all vehicle titles as a registered motor vehicle dealer.
Does CHC help me market my nonprofit?
We are happy to offer marketing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services to ensure your nonprofit is at the top of the list when it comes time for someone to donate their car. Working with your web team, we design a completely integrable, co-branded page where donors can fill out a form for their vehicle. This page will complement your organization’s current website alongside strategic social media efforts, newsletters, and email funnels.
How much of the proceeds will my organization receive?
Our nonprofit payout agreements vary by location, size, and types of donations. We work with organizations in establishing an agreement that allows you to receive the vast majority of the donated vehicle’s value.
What fees are associated with partnering with CHC?
Typical expenses for organizations include towing fees, auction fees, repair costs (if needed), and car processing fees. Our proprietary software determines where to get the most value from a donated vehicle, net of expenses. This allows us to provide a higher net number to your organization no matter what the payout.
