Our troops sacrificed a lot and risked their lives for the greater good of our country. However, when they returned home from the battlefield in the war-torn countries where they were deployed and were subsequently discharged, they realized that they now face an even greater challenge: how to return to civilian life with all the service-related problems they have and with little support from the government.
Your old car, truck, motorcycle, SUV or any other vehicle that is no longer useful to you can make a difference in improving the living condition of our veterans, our heroes who fought for us to protect our freedoms and our nationâ€™s security.
If you are interested in donating your car to our Apple Valley, California car donations program, let us guide you on what you need to know.
About Apple Valley, California
Apple Valley is a town located in the Victor Valley of San Bernardino County, California. It became a town when the residents voted for incorporation in 1988.
The question that usually pops up in peopleâ€™s mind is: Are there apples in Apple Valley? Indeed, there used to be an abundance of apple fields in the area up until World War I when it relied on growing apples as its primary industry. However, due to numerous factors like fungus, frosts, and the increasing cost of electricity to operate the water pumps, the once-thriving industry collapsed.
Despite this, the town saw the rise of modern homes, golf courses, and other recreational facilities.
The town is a network of equestrian trails. It allows easy travel by horseback through its many areas. Apple Valley and nearby towns also have yearly events that people can celebrate and enjoy.
How to Donate Your Car in Apple Valley, California
We at Veteran Car Donations have simplified our Apple Valley, California car donations process for the benefit of both our beneficiaries — our veterans — and our donors as well. All you need to do as a donor is to get in touch with us by either calling us or filling out our online donation form. We then handle the rest of the process at no cost to you.
Here is how our three-step process works:
- Contact us.
Our friendly donations specialists will ask you about your carâ€™s make and model, your preferred time and date for pickup, and your vehicleâ€™s location.
- Allow us to pick up your car.
Once we verify the information you provided, you can expect your vehicle to be picked up by a professional towing company we hired in as quickly as 24 to 48 hours after you made the call to us, if that is fine with you. Before we take away your vehicle, we will issue you a donation receipt that will release you from all liabilities on the car youâ€™re donating. With this receipt, you can now de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage, thus saving you money.
- Receive your top tax deduction.
We sell your car at auction. Once it is sold, we will send you by mail within 30 days your 100 percent tax-deductible sales receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s sale price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal income tax return.
