Support Eco-Cycle by donating your unwanted car, truck, boat or recreational vehicle
When you donate your vehicle, it's resold at an auto auction and the proceeds go to Eco-Cycle. It's a great way to 'recycle' an unwanted car, truck, boat or RV.
To donate a vehicle, contact Vehicles for Charity at 303.308.2400 or 1.866.628.2277.
What Do I Need Before I Can Donate Vehicle?
Have three things ready:
A clear title, which means a title with your name listed in the owner’s section, without an assignment or transfer to another person. All liens must be released prior to donating the vehicle.
Your car keys
It's that easy!
How Does the Program Work?
Call Vehicles for Charity at 303-308-2400 or 866-628-2277 and let them know that you would like to donate a vehicle to Eco-Cycle. Upon completion of your information you will be contacted by a tow company who will schedule a pick up. At the time of pick up, the driver will give you a receipt indicating your name, the year, make and model of the vehicle, VIN number and Eco-Cycle’s Federal Tax ID number (provided by Vehicles for Charity). You provide the driver the keys and the title to the car, truck, boat or RV.
Does My Car Have to be Running to Qualify for Donation?
No. However, cars that are in extremely poor condition may be declined because the cost to tow them may be more than the value of the vehicle.
Do I Pay for Towing ?
No, there is no charge to you for towing.
How Long Will I Wait Before My Car, Truck, Boat or RV is Picked Up?
Typically, your vehicle will be picked up in 2 to 4 business days. The tow company will contact you in advance to schedule the pick up.
Do I Get a Tax Deduction for the Donation?
If you itemize your deductions, you can deduct the “fair market value” of the vehicle. IRS publication 526, Charitable Contributions and Publication 561 Determining the Value of Donated Property, provide more detailed information. The vehicle’s fair market value must be determined by you. If the value of your donation is $5,000 or more, a qualified vehicle appraisal is required by the IRS.
