  • I’ve heard a lot recently about vehicle donation programs that have turned out to be scams, what is the truth on the subject?

    • Unfortunately, here are just a few of the facts:

      • A vast majority of these car donation programs are run by for-profit used car dealer/fundraisers.
      • In many cases the largest share of the proceeds from your donation go to the used car dealer/fundraiser, with at times as little as 10% going to the charity.
      • Some well-known and respected charities are not licensed to legally process your vehicle donation. As Auto Recyclers we can properly dispose of the donated vehicle.
    • However, you can rest assured that the value of your recycled vehicle would be donated, in its entirety, to the charity of your choice! Your receipt of pick up and charitable tax-deductible receipt ensure this.
