Give the driver your signed title. He’ll give you a temporary receipt and all necessary DMV paperwork. When your vehicle is sold, you will receive a statement for the vehicle sold and IRS tax Forms 1098 B & C (sales over $500).
Your donated vehicle can help pay for books and other materials for the County Library System. It’s easy and convenient – just a phone call away. You will be given a tax receipt. The car does not need to be running or have a current smog certificate.
Accepted vehicles include cars and SUVs, boats on a trailer, motor homes, trucks, operational motorcycles, farm equipment, and recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles, jet skis, etc.
Here's the scoop on Boats and RV's
Yes, we can take boats and RV's IF they are in good condition. First, the donor must send us a picture of the boat. We then get a quote from our auction company to pick it up. If we believe we can get more for the boat or RV than the tow, then we will gladly process the donation. We have gotten many wonderful boat and RV donations that brought in up to $23,000, but again, it is a case-by-case basis.
