Did you know that you can use your unwanted clunker to help our heroes? They are the men and women who fought to defend our freedoms and protect our security and who are now facing extreme challenges in their transition to civilian life.
When you donate an unneeded vehicle to Veteran Car Donations through our Fox Valley, Illinois car donations program, youâ€™ll give our veterans a chance to live healthy and productive lives. At the same time, youâ€™ll also entitle yourself to receive a hefty tax deduction while also quickly and easily disposing of an unwanted vehicle for free.
How You Can Join Fox Valley, Illinois Car Donations
You wonâ€™t have to break a sweat to make a difference in the lives of our nationâ€™s heroes. When you take part in our Fox Valley, Illinois car donations program, you can expect to go through a smooth and satisfying giving experience. Hereâ€™s a guide to our three-step donation process:
- Contact us.
You can kick-start your donation by ringing us up at 877-594-5822 or by filling out our secure online donation form. Weâ€™ll need you to give us your name, contact information, your carâ€™s year, make, model, mileage, and running condition. Youâ€™ll also need to confirm if you have your vehicleâ€™s title.
- Schedule your vehicleâ€™s free towing.
Weâ€™ll call you back within the same day to ask you to pick a date, time, and place for your vehicleâ€™s FREE pickup. Weâ€™ll send a tow truck to haul off your vehicle. We wonâ€™t require you to be present on the day of pickup as long as you tell us where we can locate your vehicleâ€™s keys and title.
As soon as you hand over your vehicle to us, weâ€™ll give you a towing receipt. You can use this document to cancel the insurance coverage of your vehicle and have it de-registered at your local DMV.
- You receive your tax-deductible receipt.
Weâ€™ll have your car auctioned off. Within 30 days after we get it sold, weâ€™ll have your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt sent to your address by mail. Using this receipt, you can reduce your taxable income when you itemize your deductions prior to filing your federal income tax return in the next tax season.
