Joliet, Illinois Car Donations: Show You Care for Our Heroes

If you have a car that’s been giving you lots of trouble lately with its frequent breakdowns necessitating expensive repairs, how about putting an end to your misery by turning it over to us at Veteran Car Donations through our Joliet, Illinois car donations program?

When you do so, you’ll be helping not just yourself but the needy veterans and their families in your city as well. You’ll get to play a major role in improving the lives of our former troops who are facing huge challenges in their transition to civilian life. Many of them are suffering due to lack of employment, lack of support, service-connected disabilities and mental health issues, and homelessness. Your vehicle donation will make it possible for them to experience a fresh new beginning.

We’ll auction off your donation and use the proceeds to help fund the programs and services of our veteran-focused charity partners. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations provide deserving veterans with essential medical care including mental health services, employment opportunities, job training, education scholarships, mortgage-free and specially adapted homes, transitioning and financial assistance, counseling, and many other benefits.

Our Smooth and Hassle-Free Donation Process

At Veteran Car Donations, we make everything smooth and easy for our donors! We don’t want you to go through a complicated donation process that would consume so much of your time and effort. It will take just a few minutes of your time to participate in our Joliet, Illinois car donations program. That’s all the time you need to reach out to us.

To get a clearer idea of how convenient it is to team up with us, here’s a quick three-step guide to our donation process:

  1. Contact us.

Once you’ve decided to donate, get in touch with us by either calling us at 877-594-5822 or by filling out our donation form on this website. We’ll need a few basic details about the vehicle you’re donating as well as your personal contact information.

  1. Schedule your vehicle pickup.

After verifying the information you shared with us, we’ll call you back to arrange the pickup and towing of your vehicle. Tell us the most convenient date, time, and place for turning over your vehicle to us. We’ll then coordinate with a licensed towing company to collect your vehicle. It’s alright if you can’t be around during the time of the pickup. Just make sure that our driver can easily locate your car’s title and keys inside the vehicle. Before the driver leaves with your vehicle, he will issue you or your designated representative a towing receipt. This receipt releases you from any liabilities on your donated vehicle from that point onward. With this receipt, you can now cancel your vehicle’s registration and insurance coverage.

  1. Get your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll send your vehicle to one of the best auction houses in our network where it will be sold at its highest possible price so you can claim a maximized tax write-off. Expect a 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt in your mailbox within 30 days after your vehicle is sold.
