Â Our veterans in Benicia, California are in dire need of support more than ever. The government is supposed to take care of all our veterans. However, because of their sheer number â€“ 20.9 million as of 2016 official figure — and for various other reasons, some, if not many, of our veterans fail to get the government benefits due them. Often, it takes months for the benefits to arrive, leaving the veterans destitute during the period of waiting.
These are the veterans that we at Veteran Car Donations are trying to help. One of the main issues they face today is unemployment. Our veterans have difficulty in finding jobs that can provide for the needs of their families. This is mainly because they spent the best years of their lives in the military and did not get the college diploma and the work experience needed to qualify for positions in the corporate world. Others suffered disabilities and mental health problems as a result of their battlefield experiences, preventing them from finding good enough jobs.
With our Benicia, California car donations program, we provide a platform for citizens of this city to extend a helping hand to our veterans, our heroes who fought and suffered for us to defend and protect our freedoms and our nationâ€™s security.
Your car donations will serve as building blocks for our veteransâ€™ promising future.
Our Fast, Easy, and Convenient Donation Process
Donating a car to our Benicia, California car donations program is fast, easy, and most convenient. We want our donors to experience the best and most rewarding giving experience that they could possibly have. This is also one of the ways we extend our gratitude to our donors for their generosity.
- First, call us at 877-594-5822 or fill out our online donation form.
Give us your personal contact information and a few details about your donated vehicle — its year, make, model, mileage, vehicle identification number, and description of its running condition. Tell us also your preferred time, date, and place for picking up your vehicle.
- Second, allow us to pick up your vehicle.
We will arrange for a licensed towing company in your area to pick up and tow your vehicle. You donâ€™t have to pay for this service and you donâ€™t even have to be present on the day of pickup if you have more important things to do. Weâ€™ll give you a donation receipt that will release you from all liabilities on your car as its owner, thereby allowing you to cancel and stop paying for your car registration and insurance.
- Third, wait for your tax-deductible receipt in the mail.
Since we work with IRS-certified 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, your Benicia, California car donations would qualify you for obtaining maximum tax deductions. Within 30 days after we sell your car at auction, youâ€™ll receive your tax-deductible receipt in the mail. You can claim the amount printed on the receipt as your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal tax return for the next tax-filing season.
The Types of Vehicles We Accept for Donation
You may be ready to donate but are not sure whether the vehicle you have is acceptable to us or not. No worries! We accept almost all types of vehicles even if theyâ€™re not in the best of shape. If the vehicle youâ€™re donating has dents and scratches on its hood, or if it has busted tail lights, we would still accept it.

- Cars: vans, trucks, SUVs, buses
