Start Your Garage Renovation by Donating Your Unwanted Car to Charity!

Have you taken inspiration from lifestyle shows that tell you how you can improve your home with do-it-yourself renovation projects?

The first thing to do when embarking on a DIY renovation project is to make space for it. While some clutter is easy to dispose of through organizing and garage sales, some things are harder to get rid of, such as furniture, old vehicles, and other large items.

One of the most challenging areas of your home to clear out is your garage, but it’s also the area that has the most potential to convert into a productive and relaxing space. You can convert it into an organized storage space, a home gym, or an entertainment space where your family can gather for bonding activities like watching movies. With some adjustments, you can also turn it into a home office. For sure, the effort is going to be worth it.

To begin your garage renovation project, you need to get rid of the biggest clutter that’s lying there: your old and unwanted car. Here are four tips on freeing up space in your garage:

  1. Take everything out.

You may need some help when clearing your garage since you need to take everything out to sort and clean the items that have been there ever since you can remember. These will have to include that old car that’s been sitting and gathering dust there for months on end.

  1. Prepare cleaning supplies.

Once you’ve cleared your garage, it’s time to get to the nitty-gritty. Prepare soaps, sponges, towels, and, if possible, a pressure washer, to get rid of the grime on the floor and hard-to-reach corners that you missed during your regular cleaning.

  1. Sort your stuff.

Prepare bins separately for donation, selling, and disposal so you can easily figure out what to do with the items you’ve taken out from your garage.

  1. Do basic repairs.

You can get started with your renovation by doing minor repairs on cracks, leaks, and other garage issues that might have worsened over time. You can do basic paintwork after it’s done. That should be one thing off your checklist.


Here’s the Most Practical Way to Get Rid of Your Clunker

If the only major hindrance to your dream of converting your garage into a productive space is that eyesore of a car that’s been sitting there for ages, there’s a quick, easy, and practical way to get rid of it. Simply hand it over to us at Veteran Car Donations. We’ll put your clunker to good use by turning it into a tool for helping the struggling veterans in your area lead healthier and more productive lives. 

Our team will have your car fixed before selling it through an auction. We’ll then hand over the proceeds to reputable military and veteran nonprofit organizations that are in partnership with us. Like us, these IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are dedicated to helping former U.S. service members who are homeless, unable to find decent jobs, and suffering from disabilities and serious illnesses, including mental conditions.

Our nonprofit partners use the funding we give them to provide deserving veterans 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.

The good thing about donating a vehicle to Veteran Car Donations is that you’ll get amply rewarded for doing so. Not only will you get our free pickup and towing service wherever you are in the country, but you’ll also qualify to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. 

That’s not all. The best reward you’ll get is the immense feeling of satisfaction, knowing that your gift will help improve the living conditions of the disadvantaged and neglected veterans in your community.

You can donate not just your old car but any other type of vehicle that you may have. Check out this list of the different types of vehicles we commonly accept from our donors.
