Donating a car with us is as worry-free as possible. It is a practical alternative to selling your vehicle in Iowa and will help a charity in need. Your car will be processed for auction by our team as soon as it arrives at the local donation center. You can be assured that the proceeds will go directly to the charity you chose.

Just have a signed title for your car, truck, motorcycle, semi-trailer, trailers with unladen weight over 2000 lbs, boat over 17 ft or with a lien, snowmobile purchased after 1/1/1998, ATV’s gotten after 1/1/2000, or mopeds.
