When you donate a flood-damaged car, it is not only a convenient way to dispose of an unwanted vehicle but also a great opportunity to help our struggling veterans. While that water-damaged car sitting in your garage may seem useless to you now, it can still be a treasure that can uplift the lives of our veterans,Â our nationâ€™s heroesÂ who are facing hard times.
Many of these flood-damaged vehicles are lying in homes that were badly affected by the hurricanes that swept some areas of the United States last year. Many properties were destroyed or damaged, including vehicles. Many residents still keep their damaged vehicles in their garages, hoping for better times when they would have enough money to have them repaired.
However, as many automotive experts could attest,Â repairing flood-damaged vehicles may be counter-productive and just a waste of precious money. A vehicle has numerous parts, and repairing one or two or three parts may not be enough. Even though the vehicle may run after a trip to the repair shop, the vehicle would be susceptible to further breakdowns, leading to a costly series of repairs that would eventually put a big hole in your pocket.
If you own a flood-damaged vehicle, you have four other options:
First, try to sell your damaged car. However, this may only be a waste of time, effort, and money on your part since, letâ€™s face it, nobody wants to buy a clunker.
Second, try to salvage the usable parts in your damaged vehicle and try to sell them. However, this will only cause you a lot of stress thatâ€™s not worth the pittance you may get.
Third, simply throw away the vehicle in the junkyard. However, youâ€™ll get practically nothing for this.
However, there is another way to get rid of a non-functional vehicle: Donate it to us atÂ Veteran Car Donations.
We Accept Flood-Damaged Vehicles
Good news for owners of flood-damaged vehicles: We at Veteran Car Donations accept such vehicles for donations. You can donate to us not just cars butÂ all kinds of damaged vehiclesÂ including trucks, vans, motorcycles, boats, SUVs, RVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, motorized wheelchairs, riding lawn mowers, tractors, farm equipment, pickups, buses, and boats.
With just one phone call from you, we can quickly remove that clunker in your garage. And thatâ€™s not the best part yet. You also stand to receive substantial benefits for taking part in ourÂ flood-damaged vehicle donations program. One of the benefits is a reasonable tax deduction.
Moreover, as we have stated earlier, your vehicle donation will be put to good use since we will convert it into funds that would enable ourÂ nonprofit organization partnersÂ to deliver vital services to our veterans to improve their living conditions.

How to Donate Flood-Damaged Vehicles
Â We at Veteran Car Donations have long been known for giving importance and providing convenience to our vehicle donors as much as we do to our veterans and the nonprofits that we have partnered with.Â Our flood-damaged vehicle donations process takes just three simple steps:
- First, contact us.
Reach out to us! You can call us at 877-594-5822. You can also opt to fill out ourÂ online vehicle donation form. Either way is a fast and convenient way for you to kick-start your donation. We would need just a few details like your contact information, your vehicleâ€™s make and model, mileage, and VIN.
We usually require theÂ title of the vehicleÂ as a standard procedure. State policies may cause variations in the requirements. If youâ€™ve lost your title in the flood, no worries! Simply give our friendly Title Department clerks a call at 877-594-5822. We can help you get a replacement title quickly so you can proceed with your car donation.
- Second, schedule the pickup.
We will contact you once we have verified the information you gave us. We will then ask you for your preferred date and time for the vehicle pickup. You donâ€™t have to pay for the towing service. Itâ€™s absolutely free for you. Upon pickup, weâ€™ll issue you a tow receipt. This will relieve you from any liability on the vehicle youâ€™re donating from then on.
- Third, receive your tax deduction.
Within 30 days after we sell your car at auction, you will receive your 100 percent tax-deductible sales receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return for the next tax season.
