“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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Advanced Remarketing Services is our authorized agent and attorney-in-fact for the purpose of selling vehicles and transferring titles. They handle the title transfer, towing and reporting of all vehicle donations.

Vehicle donations may be made online through the donation wizard or by calling 1-877-277-4344.
