Charity Car Auctions
Charity car auctions consist of two parts. The first part is when someone chooses to donate a car to charity and the second part is when someone buys that car at a charity car auction. In order for any charity auction to succeed both parts need willing participants. Fortunately for the Charities operating these auctions there are many advantages to both parties involved.
The advantages of Donating a car to Charity:
There are many advantages when you choose to donate a car to charity these include but are not limited to.
1. Most car donations to charity or almost any other donation to charity are tax deductible and can help reduce the tax burden for the party making the donation.
2. When the car is auctioned off the charities receive the funds to help continue their important work in the communities the serve.
These are likely the two most tangible advantages in charitable donations however there are also intangible advantages one receives when making donations to worthwhile causes. The knowledge that you have taken steps to help a worthy cause is definitely an important intangible effect and can be a very compelling reason for many people to make any donation be it a car, their time or even cash.
Another advantage in car donations for charity is it is a much easier process than trying to sell an old used car that you may have no longer need. Charities have made the entire process of donating your old car so easy it can usually be accomplished with very little effort on your part. It is certainly much easier than going to the trouble and time to list and sell a car yourself.
Many times this process can be completed with just a few Email messages or phone calls which is much simpler than dealing with all the issues of selling a car yourself. Most charity car auctions will even send a tow truck to pick the vehicle so you will not even need to leave your home to complete the process.
Another advantage is in the second part of the auction process. Purchasing a used car from a charity car auction is a good way to not only find a used car for a good price but also help a worthwhile cause at the same time. Many times it simply makes sense to purchase an older used vehicle and buying one at an auction that supports a charity allows you to get a good vehicle and make a difference in your community at the same time.
If you find yourself with an unneeded car and you are wanting the easiest way possible to dispose of that vehicle then donating a car to charity is a good option to consider. If you find yourself in need of an inexpensive used vehicle then by all means consider charity car auctions as a way to not only meet your own needs but help a charity meet others needs at the same time. It really is a win win situation, you get a used car you need and the charity gets the support it needs.
