Vehicle Donation - June 24, 2009, 10:20 AM

Your experiences with the different online sites?

Not really too concerned about the tax benefit, just ensuring money goes to proper locations, and ease of transaction.

Thanks for any input you've got.


Right up the 1 hole.

I donated a car to MADD. It was really smooth.. they contract with a company that comes and picks up your car and everything.

Whoa...uh....was on donatecarusa.com and started filling out info. Accidently hit "enter" and screen pops up "Thanks for your donation! Qualified transportation service will be contacting you shortly!"


So, uh....I guess I don't need any input.

Well the rescue squad tears them apart. I guess you could give it to the local SWAT team and let them blow it up. Kinda cool to watch them cut apart a car.

i donated a car to charity once- was naively hoping that they'd make some good use of it. as it happens, they sold the car at auction for a few hundred bucks, and a used car dealer bought it and flipped it at a tidy profit.

the charity made a few ducats out of it but the one who really profited was the dealer.

even the tax benefit was much less than i could have gotten by selling it myself at considerably less than nada low retail.

based on those experiences, i will never do it again.

Yep, that's exactly what I know will happen.

However, it's easier that me selling it for a couple hundred bones.


The fire dept thing sounds like a plan, though.

We Buy Cars in Laurel, MD. You would be surprised at how much they will offer for a POS.
