What do you do with donated vehicles?
Donated vehicles are taken to one of the sale locations we have throughout the country, where we evaluate each vehicle and make major and/or minor mechanical repairs when it is cost effective. In most circumstances, we use auction houses to sell the donated vehicles. For unique or specialty items that have been donated, we may use other means to sell the vehicle to help ensure the maximum amount of money is received for such donation.
