We appreciate the need to protect your company reputation. You need to have full reassurance that your donated vehicle’s lasting impact will be for the good of your charity. You don’t want a new buyer driving your company logo around town.
One of our late summer donors came to us with that very concern. Thinking that the only means of ensuring that the company would be protected, the donor requested that the vehicle be crushed.
Protected through the donation process
This would certainly have been an option. But our agents knew we could do better. Our agents are always looking for ways to ensure a stronger return than simply scrapping or recycling a vehicle.
Our supporting agent arranged the free pick-up for the SUV. Once at their yard, they knew right away that they had a vehicle that wasn’t ready for the crusher. They reached out to us to request permission to re-sell it for a higher return for charity. They noted that they would simply have the company logo removed.
Our donor agreed to this process (she was in full control over this at all times), and as you can see in the photo above (provided courtesy of our agent), their thorough care resulted in a vehicle that will not reflect on the donor company in any way — other than their donation to Rosebud Centre of the Arts! Rather than settling for a recycle outcome, we will be able to send hundreds of dollars on to the theatre!
