Car Donation Wizard - Top 10 Most Common Car Donations in 2017

Now that we’ve looked at the car brands with the highest volume of donations this year lets dive in and see the most common car donations in 2017 by model.  As you can imagine the most frequently donated cars to charity are the same cars that you likely see the most on the road every day.  By accepting not only cars but also trucks, motorcycles, boats, RV’s and commercial vehicles we saw a wide variety of car donations in 2017.

In fact we processed over 2,500 different makes and models this year for the hundreds of different charities we support.  We do have generous donors who donate cars to charity that are really unique and have more value than the common end of life clunker.  However, that common end of life clunker is our specialty and what we see so often on a daily basis.  Here are the top 10 most common car donations in 2017 by model.
