Before you decide to junk that old car that’s been sitting in your driveway for years, you should consider donating it to a charity! You probably think that since the car is old and doesn’t work -you can’t donate it, but you can! Keep reading to learn more about where to junk a car and also how you can donate your car to a charity that means a lot to you. 


Can I donate a car that doesn’t work? 


Yes! Instead of junking an old car, you should donate it to a charity! Cars Helping Charities accepts cars whether they run or not. Even if your car has had mechanical problems, or has been damaged, we can take your car. We accept cars and most vehicles regardless of condition. If you think your car won’t be accepted, the easiest way to find out if your vehicle can be taken is to start the process of donation. 


Where can I junk my car? 


With Cars Helping Charities, we make junking your car easy. You don’t even have to move the car yourself! We will send a towing company to pick up your car within 24 hours of you contacting us. And you incur zero costs for the towing service! The towing coordinator will contact you to schedule a pickup time that works for you. 


You also don’t even need to be present when we tow your car. Once you remove your personal items and license plate, you just leave the keys and title in the car, and the towing operator will take care of the rest. We accept car donations from all 50 states, so no matter where you are, we can help you junk your car. 


What happens after my car is taken?


Once your car is towed, it will be taken to be assessed and then prepared for sale. Based on the assessment, your car may be sold at a retail outlet, wholesale, auction, or to a junkyard for scrap metal or parts. The goal of donating your car to Cars Helping Charities is to get top dollar for your donated vehicle to maximize your tax deduction and proceeds to the charity you have chosen.
