Goodwill Car Donation Chicago is now accepting all used car donations no matter what condition the vehicle is in. Getting rid of a used car can feel like a perplexing situation while deciding upon which of many options to make. A dealer trade-in is one option, but most new car buyers find that they rarely get anything more than a token offer. Another option is to sell a used car as a private party, which requires placing ads, answering calls, having strangers come to your home, haggling over price, and having to collect money. All the while hoping you won’t get burned with a bad check. The most viable and trouble free solution is to make a used car donation to Goodwill, the nation’s leading charitable organization. Goodwill car donations result in a win-win situation for both parties: Goodwill receives a donation that will go a long way toward supporting its many job training and employment programs. Car donors become eligible to receive a tax write off for the market value of the vehicle, which is generally higher than the used car could have been sold for.
Goodwill Car Donation accepts any car in any condition as a welcomed donation. A Goodwill vehicle donation can be initiated by either completing a simple online donation form at goodwillcardonation.org or by calling toll free at (800) 433-3828, 24/7, and speaking to a donation specialist. Goodwillcardonation.org will arrange for a tow truck to pick up the vehicle within 48 hours at the car donor’s convenience and towing is free.
Many of the donated vehicles are sold at auction for the highest prices possible, with proceeds going to support Goodwill’s programs. Cars donated to goodwill and auctioned bring surprisingly good dividends, whether they are running or not. Savvy auction buyers can find a market for the cars even if they are sold to salvage yards for parts, or even scrapped for the costs of metal. Many cars go to a good home where they will be used for years to come. Whatever the end result, the party making the used car donation receives a legitimate tax deduction and enjoys the satisfaction of knowing he or she is helping others at the same time.
The simple online car donation process includes answering a few basic questions about the vehicle being donated and providing contact information so that Goodwill can arrange for a towing. Goodwill car donors receive donation receipts to verify their charitable tax donations once they have signed over title papers when the vehicle is picked up.
Goodwill is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit human services organization, which enables Goodwill’s programs to continue to assist people across the nation.
Goodwillcardonation.org also accepts other vehicles such as truck donations, SUV donations, motorcycle donations, boat donations, Jet Ski donations snowmobile donations, and even occasional airplane donations.
Goodwill car donations throughout the country, have recently been achieving higher volume car donations in Chicago, New York car donations, Rhode Island car donations, North Carolina car donations, and Colorado car donations. Across the nation, the fastest growing option for divesting of an unwanted used car is to donate it to charity, and Goodwill car donations leads the field because consumers are confident that their tax deductible donations will truly help others when they go online at Goodwillcardonation.org or call (800) 433-3828 toll free, 24/7, to speak to a car donation specialist.
