Want To Donate Your Vehicle? CARS & Hire Our Heroes Can Help You!
Donating your car, truck, van, SUV, boat, motorcycle, ATV, RV, trailer or airplane has never been easier!
Hire our Heroes has partnered up with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of San Diego, California to accept vehicle donations to support our mission in assisting veterans. CARS was founded in 2003 to provide additional funding to the programs and services of Jewish Family Service. Soon after CARS began accepting vehicle donations to help other nonprofits raise extra revenue.
CARS can take your vehicle running or not. However, it must be in one piece, have an engine, and be tow-able.
How It Works:
Schedule the Vehicle Pick up
In some areas, CARS will have the ability to schedule the vehicle for pick up during your initial call. In all other cases CARS will contact you within 2-3 business days to set a convenient appointment time for pick up. If you need your vehicle picked up sooner, please call us toll-free at 855-500-RIDE (7433) as CARS may be able to make those arrangements. The vehicle will be picked up by a licensed tow company at no cost to you and will be taken to our sale location. You will be provided a Donation Receipt by the tow driver at the time of pick up.
The Donated Vehicle is Sold
CARS has sales locations where we evaluate each vehicle. When it is cost-effective, we make major and/or minor mechanical repairs. We use auction houses to sell the majority of our vehicles. On occasion we may receive a unique or specialty item for which we may use other means to sell the vehicle. Our goal is to ensure that Hire Our Heroes receives the maximum amount of money for each donation that they receive.
CARS Provides All Necessary Tax Deduction Receipts and Forms
Within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, you will receive a thank you letter which you may use as a tax receipt. This may be your only receipt if your vehicle sells for $500 or less. If your donated vehicle sells for more than $500, we will mail you an additional receipt known as “IRS Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” if your tax identification number has been provided.
