HEAR FROM OTHERS WHO HAVE DONATED THEIR VEHICLE!

“I have had this car since 2007 and have driven every one of the 210,000 miles. The car runs smoothly, but has muffler and brake problems. Since my wife no longer drives, we are going from two to one car. In discussing the donation with a friend, she recommended Habitat for Humanity” – Dick of North Grafton

“I donated my 2002 Ford Focus to the Vehicle Donation Program at Habitat for Humanity MWGW.  It truly was easy—one phone call, then I mailed the title to the car to the program which was in Rhode Island.  Once they received the title they emailed me a phone number to call to have the car picked up and a tow truck took the car away after a quick signature.  That was it! Habitat was easy to donate with and they came promptly.  It’s for a good cause.” – Joel C. of North Brookfield

“We had an extra van sitting in our driveway for months.  A friend told me about the Habitat for Humanity MWGW vehicle donation program and figured I would look into it.  The donation process was pleasant, quick, and something I would certainly do again.  The best part is I know I made a donation to a great mission to build homes, communities and hope.” Mary S. of Northborough

WHEN MY VEHICLE IS SOLD, HOW MUCH OF THE MONEY GOES TO HABITAT?

Our partners at Advanced Remarketing Services return a higher percentage than any other vehicle processing entity. On a monthly basis, more than between 78% and 82% of the gross revenue generated from vehicle sales comes to Habitat for Humanity.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY VEHICLE IS PICKED UP?

Your vehicle will be sold on behalf of Habitat through a national network of auctions and direct buyers.

After the vehicle has been sold, you will receive an acknowledgement letter providing your vehicle sale information.

HOW DO I KNOW MY CAR IS IN GOOD HANDS ONCE IT’S BEEN PICKED UP?

All the auctions and direct buyers used by Habitat are licensed, insured and bonded in the states where they operate. By signing the title directly to Advanced Remarketing Services, you are legally transferring ownership of your vehicle to Habitat for Humanity.

When your title is received and your vehicle is picked up, you are no longer responsible for the vehicle.

ARE THERE TAX BENEFITS TO DONATING MY VEHICLE?

WHAT HAPPENS TO DONATED CARS?

About half of our cars are sold to licensed dealers at wholesale auctions and are reused for transportation. The other half are typically transported to auto salvage yards where all reusable car parts, batteries, tires and fluids are removed. Vehicles that can be recycled are crushed, shredded and recycled into steel.

Recycling cars keeps a huge amount of steel out of landfills – enough to build nearly 45,000 steel-framed homes every year. The energy saved each year is enough to power approximately 18 million homes!

Habitat receives funds for each donated vehicle, although a car sold at auction generally generates more revenue than one that is recycled. Every donation makes a difference, and the families who need a safe and afforable home are extremely grateful for your help.
