Do you want to shift some gears and get into a new set of wheels? Are you spending time on AutoTrader and CarMax looking for something new?
Perhaps you’ve got environmental guilt and think you’d be better off in a Chevy Volt or a Prius. Maybe you commute a fair distance—down to Oceanside or up to Cal State Fullerton.
If you do make a change, what will you do with the car you no longer need? A car donation in Laguna Hills can make a huge difference in the lives of others, while you get an upgraded drive and a tax write-off!
Why should I donate my car in Laguna Hills instead of selling it?
Are you losing confidence in your car’s ability to safely get you to work? Whether it’s hauling kids to Temecula for sports or you’re about to lose a tee time due to a break down, you don’t want to be stranded on the I-5, or anywhere else in Orange County!
If you feel like you’re on a first name basis with all the local mechanics, it may be a good sign you need to upgrade!
If you do a trade-in, like you’re used to doing, just realize you’ll lose a lot of the value. A dealer trade-in only gets you about 30-40% of the car’s actual value. In fact, they studied it at USC in the Marshall School of Business. Their research showed that when dealers know you have a trade-in car they jack up the price of the new one.
But, by contrast, a vehicle donation in Laguna Hills is a way to write off 100% of your car’s resale value.
And when your auto donation becomes a secondhand vehicle to a new owner, it’s going to take care of someone who needs a modest car to get to work. Add to that the benefit to your favorite charity, and now you can really feel good about what you’re doing!
