Contactless Pickup: Your Safety is Our Priority
With the Covid-19 outbreak still raging in the United States, we at Veteran Car Donations have intensified our effort to provide vital support to veteran communities throughout the country. While many companies have closed down as a result of the pandemic, we continue to remain open for vehicle donations. We can’t allow this contagion to stop us from helping our disadvantaged veterans and their families, who are among those who have been badly affected by the outbreak.
If you’re planning to make a vehicle donation with us, we’d be pleased to accept it.
You need not have any health concerns when making your donation. We’re taking all recommended measures to provide the safest and most satisfying giving experience to our donors.
Our tow truck drivers follow stringent hygienic practices and strictly maintain the six-foot social distancing rule. We constantly remind them to apply caution in situations that involve the physical presence of other people.
To ensure the safety of our donors and staff, we’re offering contactless pickup service. This means that physical contact between you and our tow truck drivers is not necessary. It’s fine with us if you opt not to be around when we collect the vehicle you’re donating.
What Happens During Pickup?
We won’t require your physical presence when towing takes place. Just be sure that you have everything ready before the tow truck driver arrives. Inform us beforehand where the tow truck driver can locate your car keys and title inside your vehicle. Make sure also to clear your vehicle of any personal belongings.
If you choose to be present during the towing, we give you our word that there will be no physical contact between you and the towing crew. We’ll ensure that your health and that of our staff and your neighbors will not be compromised by the towing of your donation.
How Does Our Donation Process Work?
Veteran Car Donations offers a donation process that’s quick, convenient, and hassle-free. It only involves three quick steps:
- Talk to us.
Start the process by reaching out to us anytime by calling 877-594-5822 or filling out our online donation form. We’ll ask for basic details regarding your vehicle.
- We pick up our vehicle.
We will call you back once we verify all the information you shared. Provide us your preferred time, place, and location for the pickup. We’ll assign a licensed towing company to collect your vehicle. Again, you don’t have to be around during the pickup.
You’ll receive a towing receipt from us on the same day. This receipt will allow you to de-register your car from your local DMV and have your car’s insurance canceled.
- Receive your tax-deductible receipt.
Following the sale of your vehicle, we’ll mail or email to you your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. You can use this to claim your tax deduction when you file your federal tax return in the next tax season.

Why Teaming Up with Veteran Car Donations Makes Sense
Veteran Car Donations serves as the online platform for the vehicle donation programs of reputable IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. We sell the vehicles we receive from our donors by auctioning them off. We then use the proceeds to support the critical programs and services of our charity partners. Our goal is to enhance the dignity of our nation’s heroes while helping them achieve financial independence and a better quality of life.
When you donate a vehicle to us, you’ll make it possible for our nonprofit partners to deliver the following services:
- Treatment of veterans suffering from mental health issues;
- Assistance to veterans confined in hospitals;
- Housing for homeless veterans;
- Employment programs for veterans and their spouses;
- Financial and other forms of aid to destitute, low-income, and homeless veterans;
- Therapeutic activities to help rehabilitate disabled veterans;
- Peer support to ailing veterans, their families, and caregivers;
- Nature-based psychotherapy, team building, and family dynamics development programs for veterans and their families; and
- Sponsorship of events that encourage companies and organizations to give back to the veteran community.
