What can I donate?
We accept most running and non-running vehicles including but not limited to cars, trucks, vans, trailers, RV's, boats and even airplanes. The vehicle must be in a 'complete' state and the donation can only be made by the registered vehicle owner. We cannot accept a vehicle that has any major parts missing, that has an insurance claim or lien against it, or that is not registered in Canada. Vehicles suitable for the auction process must have either an 'Active' or 'Rebuilt' registration status.
What options for donations are available?  
We can salvage non running vehicles to generate the funds for a donation to your chosen charity. We can also sell or auction your vehicle off for the purposes of generating funds for donation if the vehicle is running with a good working engine and transmission.
My car hasn't run in years. Can I still donate it?
Yes, we can accept most non-running vehicles. After submitting your information to us online, we will contact you to confirm the tow arrangement for your vehicle.
How do I donate my vehicle?
When you fill out your information by clicking on DONATE NOW, you will be given the opportunity to accept the terms that the net sale proceeds from the sale of your vehicle will be donated to the charity you select. This is a binding authorization that you agree Donate A Car Canada will act as your agent to sell your vehicle to generate a charitable donation on your behalf. We can only accept vehicles from the registered owner of the vehicle and you will need to provide the current vehicle registration as proof of ownership. The donor name(s) you enter on our site must match exactly with the vehicle registration.
What if my vehicle is not registered?
Legal proof of ownership is required. Therefore, we would need to receive the most current vehicle registration even if it is expired. If you do not have this, you will have to obtain a proof of last vehicle registration letter from your local registry office.
