Will you accept vehicles in any condition?

Yes, we accept vehicles in any condition provided that they have 4 wheels with tires for safe transportation of your vehicle. As well there must be no outstanding liens against the vehicle.

How much is my vehicle worth?

The evaluation of your vehicle takes into consideration many factors including the year, make, model, mileage, and overall condition of the vehicle. You will receive the best tax receipt possible, which is often more than a trade-in value.

Can I drop off my donated vehicle?

Yes! For a list of convenient drop off locations, click here!

Will you pick up my donated vehicle if needed?

Yes, once you complete the online application questionnaire and send us back copies of your signed intent to donate form and copies of the front and back of your signed ownership, we will contact you to arrange pick up of your vehicle.

Will you accept vehicles other than cars and trucks?

Yes! We accept RVs, trailers, motorcycles, boats, and many other types of vehicles. However, online donations for these types of vehicles are not available, so please give us a call at 1-877-684-4777.

When will I receive my tax receipt for my vehicle donation?

Tax receipts are issued approximately 2 weeks after receipt of your vehicle at one of our drop off locations.

I don't have my ownership - can I still donate my vehicle?

Generally speaking yes, we do need an original transferable ownership not a photocopy. However, if one is not able to be surrendered then we can look at each individual situation and try to assist with an option. Please give us a call to discuss at 1-877-684-4777.

The ownership is not in my name - can I still donate?

Yes! However, the ownership must be signed by the person whose name is listed on the front in order to complete the donation.

Can the tax receipt for the vehicle donation be issued in someone else's name -- other than the person named on the ownership?

Unfortunately, not. Government regulations state that we must issue the tax receipt in the registered owners name.

What do you do with the vehicles?

All vehicles are sold through different venues; or if the vehicle is at the end of life then they are recycled. A limited number of vehicles are used at Teen Challenge Centres. All proceeds go to fund Teen Challenge Canada Inc and the life changing programs for men and women across Canada.
