Fleet Vehicle Donation | From 1 – 22, Every Car Counts

Clearing the company yard? ‘Looking to make a helping-hand difference while you do it? Fleet vehicle donation gets both done! The added bonus? Your company receives a tax receipt for each gift.

Fleet vehicle donation extraordinaire!

Twenty-two. You read that right: 22! The generosity of one BC company has set a new standard for fleet vehicle donation.

But let’s not forget about those who came before. Every single vehicle donation counts. Every month we see generous companies donating a car here, a quirky van there. Each one ensures a monetary gift to the company’s charity of choice.

Back in 2021, Heritage Office Furnishings rolled on to the scene with humility and flare, both!

Then, in March of 2022, My Tech Guys’ fleet vehicle donation of three S-Cargo units and one Alto (I mean…how fabulous are those cars?) meant big dollars for their chosen charity. The company wished to extend the legacy of zip and pizzazz that their “fleet of oddball vehicles packed to the brim with tech tools” had provided their crews.

And here we are today with a new company donation of 22 units for one very lucky charity!

The who, the what, and the wow

Imagine our delighted our surprise when we received a call from the now defunct company, The Vancouver Trolley Company informing us of their wish do good in a very big way.

Readying to close their doors, they had a yard to clear. Up for donation:

Prevost, Freightliner, Trolley, and cargo buses. Twenty-one such buses, to be clear! Seating a few to a few dozen passengers, these units had served their time. Some running, others done-in, each bus was assessed on its own merit for auction sale.

What a process it was to get these units cleared out of the yard and then sold! And how outstandingly generous the outcome for one Canadian charity.

Fleet vehicle donation math

I did a little math on this particular fleet vehicle donation cluster. Some units were down to the nubbins and ready for recycling. When donated vehicles are recycled it’s all about curb weight and balancing costs. A few of VTC’s buses in this condition brought in just a couple of hundred dollars each.

On the other hand, some Prevost and Freightliner units had some miles left to give. Going up for bids at auction, donations of $2,000.00, $4,000.00, $5,000.00+ were secured!

The cherry on top of this company giving Sundae

One vehicle in the mix of this enormous donation was not like the others. A “small” unit by comparison, the VTC also donated a Chevy Silverado. This brought their donation total to twenty-two vehicles in one go.

This one unit brought in a few sturdy bids, indeed! Over $6,000.00 was added to the mix for this still-truckin’ truck.

The charity at the heart of it all | The VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation

The Vancouver Trolley Company chose to send each of their donation outcomes to one charity. They opted to give locally, serving close to home as ever before.

The VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation was the happy recipient of just under $30,000.00 in fleet vehicle donation money!

My company is ready to clear the yard, too!

If your company mission lines up with the likes of these folks, let’s work together!

First, give us a call at 1-877-250-4904. Let us know the scope of your donation hopes. This will give us a chance to be sure we can serve you with excellence.

Once we’ve had that conversation we will ensure that there is an individual donation form in place for each of your units. These will include the year, make/model, and VIN for each vehicle. This allows you to log a clear paper trail in your company files.

Next, you’ll simply await contact from our supporting agents. These are the crews that will serve you with your free tows.

And finally, once each vehicle is either re-sold or recycled on your behalf, your gifts will be disbursed to the charity or charities that you choose to gift. Some of our fleet vehicle donation companies select just one charity to receive all gifts. Others like to spread the love around a little; many choose a different organization for every vehicle.

We’re at-the-ready to take care of the nitty-gritty details on this. Reach out today!
