Buying A Car? Consider Donating Your Used Car

donating your used car
Now that the end of the year is near and it is the holiday season, many people will be looking to make an automobile purchase. The end of the year will bring with it deals at most every dealership from new and used lots alike. While you’re out there looking for your new ride and wondering what to do with your old one, why not consider donating your used car instead of the typical trade in?

Trading in an old car is commonplace for the majority of people when they buy another vehicle, The Original 1-800 Charity Cars, operators of the nation’s leading vehicle donation/distribution program, felt it would be important to highlight the benefits of donating your used car.

When you donate a vehicle to charity:

  • You are helping people in need (directly or indirectly) through your donation.
  • In some instances your donated vehicle can go to help a particular cause you support.
  • You can get a tax deduction for your donation.
  • You save time shopping around for the best “trade in deals” for your old vehicle.
  • You do not have to worry about those last minute fix ups and repairs in order to get the best value for your trade in.
