Car Donation Process Questions
When will my vehicle be picked up?
Donated vehicles are typically picked up within 3 business days. During our busiest donation months – December & January – we ask that donors allow more time for pick up.
What documentation will I receive for my donation?
Donors receive a donation receipt and a tax receipt. A donation receipt is provided by our tow truck driver at the point of pick up. This proof of donation can be used to cancel insurance and assist in returning tags to Department of Motor Vehicles.
A tax receipt, which contains the value of donor’s tax deduction, is sent to the donor after their vehicle has been processed (See below: when can I expect my tax receipt). As a complimentary service, VFC also provides a 1098c for all donations, except those that sell for under $500.
