Car Donation Service in California (CA)

California car donation is easy in the "Golden State". Keep in mind that when you donate your car in CA, you'll receive a tax receipt. With the huge number of programs out there vying for your vehicle donation, it may be hard to figure out the best organization to donate your car to. Car Donation Wizard proudly partners with the best national and local charities. How do we choose who's the best? We look for organizations that will best use the money raised from your vehicle donation to help change the lives of others. Organizations like the American Cancer Society, V-Dac (Vehicle Donation to Any Charity), Car Talk, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Habitat for Humanity, the North Shore Animal League and many more.

Donate your car, SUV, boat on a trailer, motorcycle, motorhome or other vehicle to charity today and we'll help return 80% of the net proceeds back to your charity. This is more than any other California or national organization can say. Check us out through the California Attorney General's website, where it's every vehicle donation program's responsibility to publically submit their return to charity.

If you have an older model, higher mileage vehicle that might be releasing harmful emissions, our donation program can also help you recycle your old vehicle in California. Recycling a car helps create steel for use in future vehicles, with steel being the number one most recycled product in the U.S.

Start your California car donation today with one of our great nonprofits. If you still have questions on what to donate, how to donate, or who to donate to, call our customer service team at 877-957-2277.

How do I release the liability of my donated vehicle in California (CA)?

  • The state of California DOES require a Certificate of Title in order to transfer ownership of your vehicle. If your vehicle was last titled in the state of CA we can accept a Reg 262 and Reg 227 form in place of the title. These are secure forms that can be obtained at any local DMV office. We ask that your license plates remain on the vehicle at the time of pick-up UNLESS they are personalized.
  • In order to complete your California car donation, transfer your title by entering the name of our authorized agent, ADVANCED REMARKETING SERVICES in the buyer/purchaser field. Please PRINT and SIGN your name in the seller/owner field EXACTLY as it appears at the top of the title.
