How To Donate vehicles For Cash

The sale price of a vehicle is determined by four basic factors: the make and model of the vehicle, its condition, whether there is a high demand for its parts, and whether the yard already has the automobile in stock. Keep in mind that your vehicle may be more valuable to some junk yards than others.

Looking back at how stressful that day was, we consider ourselves very lucky. Sure we lost the car, but we gained something more important. That first tow trucker driver did not have to provide us with that number, and the scrap yard guy did not have to pick up our car on a Saturday, let alone pay us for it, all in the middle of a Montreal Snow Storm. They were truly my heroes that day. I am not sure it would be prudent to mention who they are and I would not want them to get in trouble, suffice to say they know who they are; thank you!

One can also donate their old car. You can make this donation to any charitable organisation. Make sure that these organisation are recognised and a 501(c)(3) organisation. For your great gesture, the government gives you tax deductions depending on the amount for which the charitable organisation sells the car. Even they have 24x7 helpline service for the donors.

salvage yards make money in three ways. They sell all of their left over parts and bodies for scrap iron. This makes them a little money after they have milked the used and often wrecked car dry. Salvage yards specialize in used auto body parts. Fenders, bumpers, doors, etc. are great money makers for these businesses. They also make good choices for repairs when you are trying to save money.

I know, I know, many Americans may be thinking, what charity wants my old junk vehicle? And even if they did, what would they do with it? Well, to the surprise of many people, a junk vehicle can be much more than an old rust bucket! Also, just about any charity would love for Americans to donate their old junk automobiles to them. There are actually 2 ways that most charities get cash from these automobiles.

Start by looking online. There are junk yards that have the parts you need. And just because they are referred to as junkyards, doesn't mean they only sell junk. Lots of their inventory is from cars that are less than 1 year old. What do you think happens to the perfectly good tires on a new BMW that was junked do to rear accident. Some wiley person buys them at a great discount for their own car. Junk or salvage yards turnover millions of dollars in car parts every year.

Before you go to the expense and hassle of buying over the internet, check with your local car parts store. Building a rapport with them may be the best move you have ever made. It may also turn out that they can get the part shipped to them at a less expensive rate than you could personally - if you have to shop online. Plus, they may already have a relationship with some of the online dealers.
