Donate a Car 2 Charity: Oakland

IT'S EASY TO DONATE YOUR CAR, BOAT OR RV IN THE OAKLAND AREA.

We provide fast, free pickup of your vehicle with no cost to you and you can receive a tax deduction for your donation. With an extensive network of pickup agents throughout Detroit we can handle your vehicle pickup quickly and efficiently.

Blown Engine? Dead Transmission? 

We can usually pick up a car in any condition. Just give us a call and we'll set up your donation in our system and assign a towing agency to contact you to arrange the free pick up of your vehicle. 

I Can't Find The Title, Can You Still Pick Up My Car? 

For the most part we can pick up a car without a title as long as you are the registered owner of the car and can sign some paperwork. If you'd like to get a replacement title before pickup, this can often expedite the process. For information on how to go about this, please check in at one of the California Department of Motor Vehicles offices.
