Did you know that contributing to our Elk Grove, California car donations program can help our veterans surpass the struggles that they have been experiencing? Yes! That old and seemingly useless car just lying in your carport can help transform the lives of our heroic former military servicemen and women and their families if you donate it to us at Veteran Car Donations.
When you want to get rid of your old car, you have such choices as selling it, trading it or simply dumping it at the nearest scrapyard. However, in all those choices you need to do tons of things before you can get your car out in your garage.
A better, faster, and more convenient and beneficial way of disposing of your unwanted vehicle is to donate it to Veteran Car Donations. We will actually do the selling of your car at no cost to you. Although you wonât get the direct payment for the sale of your car, you will still get the same amount in the form of a tax deduction. And since we know of ways to sell your car at its highest possible price, youâll get to receive a maximized tax write-off.
Aside from the personal benefits youâll receive, your car donation will also automatically make you a key contributor to our humanitarian mission aimed at promoting the welfare of our veterans and active-duty troops as well.
Why Help Our Veterans?
You might ask yourself, âWhy exactly do we need to help our veterans?â Well, our veterans are our nationâs living but unsung heroes. They risked their lives for us and sacrificed a lot to keep us safe and sound in our homeland as they fought off those who sought to do us harm on foreign battlefields. Thatâs why we owe our freedom and security to them. Thatâs why we need to show them some compassion as they struggle to transition to civilian life.
Sadly and ironically, despite the heroic deeds that theyâve done, many of our veterans are facing hard times. Many of them are unable to find employment to support their needs and those of their families. They face extended delays in receiving the benefits due them from the government while some donât get to receive anything at all.
Some of our veterans have been forced out of their homes due to extreme poverty and now live on our streets and sidewalks as homeless beggars.
Some continue to suffer from their service-connected physical injuries and mental issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury, depression, social anxiety, and more. Some have resorted to alcohol and drug abuse to cope with their physical and mental distress. Tragically, some have resorted to suicide to put an end to their misery.
Clearly, this is not how we want our veterans to end up. They truly deserve better! If you want to do something about their situation, take part in our car donations program in the area.
âHow Do I Start My Donation?â
We tailored our Elk Grove, California car donations process to ensure our donorsâ convenience. You can do make your car donation taking just a few minutes of your time in the comforts of your own home. We want you to have the best giving and most rewarding experience.
To give you a better look, here is a guide to our three-step donation process:
- First step: Contact us.
You can do this by filling out our online donation form, which you can find on the right side of this page. Provide us your contact information and details of the vehicle youâre donating (year, make, model, mileage, VIN). We will also ask if your title is with you and if your car is in running or non-running condition.
You can also contact us by phone through our toll-free 24/7 hotline 877-594-5922. One of our donation specialists will answer your call. You will also need to give them the same details stated above.
- Second step: We pick up your car.
Weâll check the information you gave and call you back shortly to schedule your vehicleâs pickup. Tell us your most convenient date, time, and place for the pickup. If you want us to take your car as soon as possible, we can do it the following day or the day after. During the pickup, weâll give you a donation receipt that absolves you of all liabilities on your car from that point onward. You can now cancel your carâs registration and insurance coverage and properly dispose of your license plates.
- Third step: Receive your tax deduction receipt.
After we have towed your car, we will refurbish it and put it on the auction block. Within 30 days after it is sold to the highest bidder, you will receive from us by mail your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. This document will show your carâs final selling price, which will be the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal income tax return for the next tax-filing season.
