Cars for Homes: How car donation works

How do I start the vehicle donation process?

  • Call Cars for Homes toll-free at 1-877-277-4344 or make your boat, truck, RV or car donation online.
  • You will be asked to provide information about the vehicle you with to donate, including the make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN) and current mileage.
  • Most vehicles with proper title information are accepted, unless the costs of processing and towing fees exceed the auction value of the vehicle.

What happens after my vehicle is accepted?

  • You will be given instructions for processing the vehicle’s title.  If the title cannot be located, assistance is available.
  • Your donation is then assigned for pickup and sale.
  • Arrangements are then made to have the title processed.
  • You will be contacted to coordinate the vehicle and key pickup by a licensed and insured member of the national network of contractors who work for Advanced Remarketing Services, Habitat for Humanity’s authorized agent.

What happens after my vehicle is picked up?

  • Your vehicle will be sold through a national network of diverse venues on behalf of Habitat for Humanity.
  • After the car is sold, you will receive an acknowledgment letter thanking you for your support and providing the vehicle sale information. This letter may be used as a receipt for tax deduction purposes; additional tax documents will be provided when required by IRS regulations as a result of the sale value of the vehicle.
