Are you wondering, “Why Donate a Car in Minneapolis, St. Paul, MN?” At Auto Technical, Inc., we get that making a car donation is a big step and a huge personal investment. That’s why we make it a point to answer as many questions as possible.
Why Donate a Car in Minneapolis, St. Paul, MN?
- Personal satisfaction. If you have the urge to give back to your community, making a car donation is more than worthwhile. When our 501(C)(3) receives a car donation, we refurbish the vehicle to ensure it’s driveable, safe and comfortable. Depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, we either give it to an individual referred to us by one of our partnering agencies (social and human services groups) or we sell it as a used vehicle. The latter we do this for luxury models with special maintenance needs at higher costs. Your car donation will help these individuals to “get back on their feet” to lead more promising lives. Our used car sales fund our charity programs.
- Your car donation is tax-deductible. While you walk away feeling as if you’ve just helped to make a difference in someone’s life, your car donation is also tax-deductible. Tax deductions start at about $500. Richard Johnson, Auto Technical’s founder and director knows the ins and outs of tax-deductible car donations. If you want guidance on how to handle this process, please contact Richard today.
- We restore and refurbish the vehicle for you. It doesn’t matter whether your vehicle runs or doesn’t run, Auto Technical will repair and refurbish your vehicle. If you’re concerned about how much you would need to spend to fix your car so you can sell it through a newspaper or Craigslist, worry no more. At Auto Technical, we are experienced auto mechanics.
- No waiting for buyers. If you’ve ever sold a car, you know how challenging this can be. It’s a tedious process that involves researching market value, negotiating the sale, waiting for the right buyer and managing the title transfer with the DMV. However, if you donate your vehicle to Auto Technical, you barely have to lift a finger! Our organization will arrange for a trailer to pick up your car regardless of where you are in Minneapolis or parts of Wisconsin. We will provide you with the necessary paperwork, including a tax donation form and a donor’s bill of sale. Because Auto Technical operates under car dealer license, transfer of title happens after you sign the donor’s bill of sale. You do not have to work directly with the DMV. Once we take possession of your vehicle, you are released of any responsibility to your car.
