Donating your vehicle is a very convenient alternative if you have a vehicle that you are considering selling, trading in, or one that’s just taking up space in your driveway. Read below to learn more about the advantages of donating your vehicle to ChangingGears.
It’s Free and Easy
After you sign and notarize your vehicle’s title, ChangingGears will pick up your vehicle for free. When your vehicle is sold, we’ll send you all the documents that are necessary for you to receive your tax deduction.
We’ll Take Any Vehicle in Any Condition
Even if your car isn’t running, or hasn’t been driven for years, it’s still a valuable resource to us. And if for some reason we can’t restore to a safe and reliable vehicle, we’re able salvage the vehicle and use the funds to put back into our operation.
It’s a Win-Win Situation
Not all auto donation programs work the same. Most programs sell the donated vehicle at auction and use the proceeds to fund their other programs. Donating your vehicles to ChangingGears has two significant advantages:
- Your vehicle will be used to meet a genuine transportation need in your community, not just sold to the highest bidder. ChangingGears ensures that your donated vehicle will be used to help a deserving client that is on the verge of breaking the cycle of poverty in a sustainable way.
- You will receive the maximum allowable tax deduction. If you donate your vehicle to a charity and it’s sold at an auction for less than the vehicle’s fair market value, your deduction will be limited to the sale price. However, because of our sales model, when you donate your vehicle to ChangingGears, you will be able to deduct the fair market value of your vehicle on the date you donate it.
