Let Your Auto Get the TLC It Needs!

Since cars don’t come cheap, you’ll want yours to last for as long as possible. However, you can’t expect to get the most out of your car if you fail to maintain it.

However, even with regular maintenance, repairs can be inevitable. Unless you’re an experienced mechanic, you’ll want to take your vehicle to a trusted auto shop. Whether your car needs a regular maintenance check or a major repair job, taking it to a reputable auto shop gives you the assurance that your car will get the TLC it needs.


Why Prefer a Local Auto Shop for Your Car Repair/Servicing

If something’s not right with your vehicle, you’re faced with two choices – take your vehicle to a local auto shop or head to the dealership service center. While both options will fix your car, choosing an independent auto shop is often more advantageous than heading to the dealership. Veteran Car Donations shares the top 5 reasons to have your car repaired or serviced at a local auto shop:

  1. Wide range of expertise

Compared to dealerships that only accept the car brands they sell, local auto shops often know the ins and outs of a wide range of vehicle makes and models. They also have the skills required for diagnosing and repairing various car problems. You won’t have to jump from one shop to another to have your car fixed.

  1. More affordable services

Local auto repair shops offer service charges that are more affordable than those offered in dealerships. Due to the growing competition in the industry, auto repair shops try to sell parts and services at the lowest price without compromising the value and quality of the services they render. They’re also more flexible than dealerships, ensuring that they can work out a solution that fits your budget and needs. 

  1. Customized care

The more you use the services offered in your local auto shop, the better its technicians will be able to serve you. If they’ve been repairing your car for a while, they’ll find it easier to identify what it needs. You will also become a valuable customer to them, motivating them to do everything in their power to ensure you’re satisfied with their work so you can continue patronizing the shop.

  1. Convenience

Choosing a local auto shop is often more advantageous than having to go to a dealership that could be miles away from where you live. You won’t have to worry about the long commute home while your vehicle is being serviced. Plus, many local auto shops offer to drive your vehicle to you once the repairs are completed.

  1. Supporting small businesses in your area

Local auto shops are small businesses. By choosing them over large chain dealerships, you’ll be able to help in strengthening the economy in your area and create jobs for people in your community.


Is Repairing Your Clunker No Longer an Option?

If your car is racking up repair bills faster than you can earn money to pay them, you’d be better off getting rid of that vehicle. Don’t have any regrets though — you can still use it to do something good that will make you proud. Donate that clunker to us at Veteran Car Donations, and we’ll use it to make life better for the struggling underprivileged veterans in your local community.

Our team will sell your donated vehicle through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of leading veteran nonprofit organizations that are in partnership with us. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits are dedicated to helping former U.S. service members who are homeless, those who are unable to find decent jobs, and those suffering from service-connected disabilities as well as serious illnesses, including mental health issues.

They use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with housing and financial assistance, family support, employment and livelihood opportunities, free comprehensive health care and medical treatment, psychotherapy services, educational scholarships, and many other benefits.

You’ll reap meaningful rewards for your charitable contribution. Instead of driving your vehicle to our nearest facility, you’ll get a free professional towing service from us. We can collect your vehicle anywhere in the country.

Your gift will also entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

On top of these material rewards, you’ll experience the priceless joy of knowing that you’re giving back to those who put their lives on the line to protect ours and secure our freedoms, too.

Since we’re willing to accept nearly all vehicle types, feel free to donate your unwanted car, truck, van, motorcycle, snowmobile, or even your granddad’s old motorized wheelchair.
