Understanding What Happens After People Donate A Vehicle To Charity

by Derrick Martinez on May 23, 2012

Did you know that hundreds of thousands of consumers make the decision to donate a vehicle each and every year. These car donations lead to millions and millions of dollars in funding to charities on an annual basis. But, how do vehicle donations turn into cash? What exactly does this process entail? If you have a car that you would like to donate, chances are that these are questions that you are looking for the answers to as well. Below, you will find the steps that car donations go through once they are donated. Step 1: The Car Donation Is Towed: The first step for vehicle donations once people donate them is for them to be towed to the donations facility. Don't worry, in most cases, consumers don't have to pick up the towing expense. The charity or company that the people decide to donate their vehicles through will generally pay for all expenses associated with processing automobile donations for consumers and charities. Towing is one of these expenses. Step 2: The Car Donation Is Analyzed: Once the vehicle donations given by consumers have been towed to the donations facility, the automobiles that were donated will be analyzed. This analysis answers a few questions. Questions like "Does the automobile have anything wrong with it?", "What is the year make and model?", "How much money will it cost to facilitate the necessary repairs to get the vehicle donations running?", "What is the perceived value of the car donations?" and finally, "will it be worth while to restore the car donations to their original or at least a running condition before the sale?". Step 3: The Car Donation Will Be Fixed Or Stripped And Prepared For Sale: The next step for car donations that are given by consumers is for it to either be fixed or stripped and prepared for sale. This simply means that the vehicles that have problems but are deemed worthwhile to be fixed, will be fixed both mechanically and aesthetically. The automobile donations that are not worth fixing will be stripped of all working parts, scrap metal and anything else of value. The fixed car donations, car donations that didn't need any work and even the removed valuable assets found in junk vehicles will then be cleaned to prepare them for sale. Step 4: The Car Donation Will Be Sold: The final step for the vehicle donations that are given by Americans is for them to be sold. All car donations that are in one piece will most likely be sold at auction. The working parts from non-working cars will often be sold to junk yards, mechanics and even people and the scrap metal found in these cars is generally sold to scrap metal yards for recycling. Although step 4 was the final step for the automobile donations given by Americans. The automobile donation process isn't quite done. The final step for the automobile donation company that Americans choose to donate their vehicles through is to deduct the cost of the donation from the total proceeds generated by the donation. The difference will be given to the charities that consumers chose when they decided to donate their vehicles.
