The Vehicle Donation Process
Donating your car, truck, van, SUV, boat, motorcycle, ATV, RV, trailer or airplane has never been easier! Simply choose Laura's House to donate to, give a call, and trained staff will guide you through the donation process.
Schedule the Vehicle Pick up
In some areas, they will have the ability to schedule the vehicle for pick up during your initial call. In all other cases CARS will contact you within 2-3 business days to set a convenient appointment time for pick up. If you need your vehicle picked up sooner, please call us toll-free at 855-500-RIDE (7433) as we may be able to make those arrangements. The vehicle will be picked up by a licensed tow company at no cost to you and will be taken to our sale location. You will be provided a Donation Receipt by the tow driver at the time of pick up.
The Donated Vehicle is Sold
They have sales locations where they evaluate each vehicle. When it is cost-effective, they make major and/or minor mechanical repairs. They use auction houses to sell the majority of our vehicles. On occasion we may receive a unique or specialty item for which they may use other means to sell the vehicle. Our goal is to ensure that the nonprofit organization receives the maximum amount of money for each donation that is received.
CARS Provides All Necessary Tax Deduction Receipts and Forms
Within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, you will receive a thank you letter which you may use as a tax receipt. This may be your only receipt if your vehicle sells for $500 or less. If your donated vehicle sells for more than $500, we will mail you an additional receipt known as "IRS Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes" if your tax identification number has been provided.
