Question: I have a car that doesn’t run and I’m considering donating it. How does that work? Will I have to pay to have it towed to you (since it doesn’t run)? —Julie K., Boulder, CO

Answer: Julie, we commend you for considering a charitable donation as a way to meet both your needs and the needs of your favorite charity! Getting rid of a used car can be difficult if it does not run, as you no doubt know! Fortunately, we DO accept donated cars that are not in running condition, and we make it as painless as possible for everyone involved. You will never be charged for having your vehicle towed when you donate it to Cars Helping Charities—all costs are covered by our donation program. Simply give us a call or fill out the brief form on our website to make the arrangements. We will have your car towed by a fully licensed, bonded and insured towing professional, usually within 24 hours. You’ll receive your receipt via e-mail within 24 hours of the pick up! Please contact us at 866-701-2277 if you have any additional questions!
