Thank You For Visiting Our Site

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' - Jesus

Automobile or Vessel Donations

What can I donate?

We accept most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats and RV's. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please send us an email (information@bagsofhope.org) or call us at 954-461-0280.

Is my vehicle donation tax deductible?

Vehicles donated on this site will benefit a non-profit classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and are tax deductible.

What do I need to do to donate my vehicle?

We'd like the title to the vehicle. But, if you do not have title papers call us anyway; other arrangements can sometimes be made. You may contact us" to request a Vehicle Donation Form or download one here.

Am I guaranteed that my vehicle donation will be accepted?

We accept most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats and RV's. However, exceptions may apply, depending on factors such as the distance to our nearest towing costs, and various other market dynamics which also affect the overall process. Should this be the case, we will do our best to inform you as promptly as possible so that you can make other arrangements.

How is the value of my vehicle donation determined?

Thanks to new tax law (in effect as of January 2005), the IRS has taken the guesswork out of determining the value of your vehicle. You may deduct the full price that we receive from the sale of your vehicle. This greatly simplifies the process for you, the donor, because you no longer have to research and come up with an estimate of the fair market value of the vehicle. This also eliminates the risk of you getting into trouble by overstating the value of your deduction on your tax return. You’ll know exactly the amount you may deduct, eliminating guesswork, and saving you both time and risk.

You will receive a receipt at the time we pick up your vehicle, and as a follow up we will send you a second receipt later, as soon as we sell it, letting you know the exact amount for which it sold. That amount is your tax deduction.

If the age or condition of your vehicle is such that your tax deduction works out to be less than $500, you may use its fair market value instead of the sale price.

How will the vehicle be picked up?

We will arrange to have your vehicle towed away at a scheduled time.

How long will it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can normally pick up your vehicle within a few days. If you need your vehicle picked up sooner, where feasible we will work with you on this.

How can I contact you to schedule a pick up?

To schedule a pick-up, please call 954-461-0280
