Thinking about automobile donation?

There are various things we like to donate but automobile donation is not something that comes to mind very easily. Yet, this is something that many people need to do to help other less fortunate people. Yes, there are lots of people out there who need cars and no, it is not because they are too uppity to take the bus or the subway.

There are many people who are trying to start a small business or run a goods transporting service but don’t have the means. Buying a used car is well out of their budget let alone even thinking about a new car. Some charities try to help them out by getting vehicle donations and passing them onto these people. The charities take it one step further though, they take these charity cars and refurbish them before they are sold to these deserving families. The selling process is really a token one rather than one where any money is made. In fact, the charity spends a fair amount of money in refurbishing these cars before selling them again. The selling price is always a very minute amount and is never set at the cost that went into refurbishment or at current market prices.

If you are interested in donating an old car of yours, look online for a registered charity near you. Always do a background check on any charity you are thinking of donating to before you do the donating. This will help you avoid any unpleasantness later on.
