1) What types of vehicles can I donate?

Commercial vehicles, autos, cars, motorcycles and even boats can be donated to our charity. You can even donate vehicles that are not in running condition. The only thing required to make a donation is a clear title of the car.


2) Will I benefit tax-wise if I donate my car?

Your car donation is tax deductible. You will receive a letter from us stating that you had donated the car. However, individual cases produce individual tax benefits. So it is better to take the advice of your tax advisor to find out how much tax benefit you can claim.

3) Is it possible for me to donate a car that has not been run for years?

We accept any vehicle that is in running condition or not. You will know if your donation was accepted within one day of sending the car donation form.

4) Do I have to bear any expenses when I donate my car?

No, all expenses of towing the car is borne by us.

5) Do I have any restrictions on the car I intend to donate?

Yes, there are some restrictions. You will know if your donation was accepted within one day of sending the car donation form. It is necessary that you have the title of the car you donate. Of course, it is also necessary to have the keys of the car.

6) Am I prohibited from donating my car if I don’t find the car title?

No, in case you don’t find the title of the car, you can still donate the car. You have to get a duplicate from the local Department of Motor Vehicles.

7) How long will it take for your people to come and pick up the car?

Once we receive your request, we will send our people to pick your car. This may take 2 – 5 days; however, the towing service will contact you in advance to make the necessary arrangements.

8) Is it necessary for me to be present when the car I donate is to be picked up?

In case the car you donate is on the street, it will be better to have someone present when we come to pick the car. However, if the car is in your driveway, and can be reached by a large tow truck, then you need not be present. But you will have to inform the towing service of where the keys and title can be found.

To buy a new car or to lease?

Whether to buy a new car or to lease it is a dilemma many new car buyers tend to face. Though it is difficult to decide between the two, it is important that you realize that a lease and a loan are two different entities. The lease finances the use of the vehicle while the loan finances the purchase of a vehicle. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of them.

You have to decide if you prefer ownership with loans and to low up-front costs with no down payment of a lease. Though you stand to earn long term savings through loans, you are offered lower monthly payments through leases.

When buying a car with a loan, you pay for the entire cost of the car. The amount is not dependant on the number of miles you use the car. You just have to make a down payment, pay some sales tax and monthly installments based on the interest rate determined for the loan by the loan company. The first payment is made a month after signing of the contract.

In the case of a lease, you only pay a part of the cost of the vehicle. The part you pay is the part that you use up when driving the car. You can either pay or not pay a down payment while paying sales tax only on the monthly payments. However, with leases, you end up paying extra fees with a security deposit that is not necessary when you buy a car. Here, you have to make the first payment when you sign the contract.

So as you can see, there actually is no say on what is better; buying or leasing a car. The decision lies entirely in your hands. Individual lifestyles and habits call for independent decisions. Independent financial situations too call for individual decisions. So you are the better person to make the final decision.
