Does it help my charity to donate a car in BC?

BC car, truck, SUV, van, and motorcycle donors raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity each year. Your four-wheeled wonder can make such a difference!

We may recycle your car: this results in a flat-rate donation determined by what our agent will pay for the vehicle. This can earn your charity hundreds of dollars.

Whenever we can, we have our agents re-sell donated vehicles. This ensures that the charity can receive a gift of thousands of dollars if the car has that kind of value.

Whatever your cause, we are here to serve.

Whatever your vehicle, we will do all we can to assist. Scrap cars, junk cars, running-like-a-wonder cars — donate a car in BC and make a difference for the cause you love today!

About that ICBC Transfer Form

You will hear from us promptly after finishing up your donation form. Typically, we send an email within an hour, or two, on business days. We respond through the weekend as well! When you opt to donate a car in BC, you can expect things to move along at your pace.

After we have that form, the tow agent will call you or your tow contact to arrange tow timing. They will
– clarify current COVID measures.
– discuss the option to drop off your vehicle (if this is your preference).
– ask where you will leave the keys and original signed vehicle registration. Your signature on an ICBC Transfer Form will be required (our agent will advise regarding this process). In some cases, this means that the registered owner will need to be present at tow time. The agent will do all they can to make this as simple and efficient a process as possible!

Choosing your cause

When you fill in your vehicle information form you will easily see our drop-down list of charities. It is a really long list!
