While most cars have value, some are completely outdated. No matter what dealership you take them to or what company you try to exchange them with, some cars have served their financial purpose and no longer have any significant cash value.
That Clunker Can Help Charity
Although your car may be one of the few completely devalued vehicles on the road, you can still help the world by making a donation. Contrary to some beliefs any car, ugly or beautiful, can help a non-profit organization. It’s best to donate when you can’t sell your car.
Donating a Car Instead of Cash
Many people choose to give cash instead of their cars to charity. Although automobiles offer significant benefits to non-profit organizations, cash, checks and money orders are often viewed as the only way to give to a worthy cause. Donated vehicles may be sold to a private buyer or to a salvage yard. Some organizations take donated vehicles and fix the cars so they can be used for daily errands.
Before giving your keys to any organization, be sure to research what the charity is about. If there is a charity that is important to you, don’t hesitate to contact the local chapter to see if the group would be interested in a vehicle donation. Also, make sure that your vehicle is empty and ready for a new owner. While not a cars for cash exchange, the vehicle is being given to someone. Under no circumstances should you present a dirty vehicle to charity.
