How Car Donations Work

Donating your vehicle is simple! Below are a few frequently asked questions to help guide you through the process. For more information, please call the Development Department at (732) 974-2422 ext. 8.

How do I start the vehicle donation process?

Call Cars for Homes toll-free at 1-877-277-4344 or make your boat, truck, RV or car donation online.

You will be asked to provide information about the vehicle you wish to donate, including the make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN) and current mileage.

Most vehicles with proper title information are accepted, unless the costs of processing and towing fees exceed the auction value of the vehicle.

Very important – please remember to specify that you would like your donation to go to Coastal Habitat for Humanity.

What happens after my vehicle is accepted?

You will be given instructions for processing the vehicle’s title. If the title cannot be located, assistance is available.

Your donated car is then assigned for pickup and sale.

Arrangements are then made to have the title processed.

You will be contacted to coordinate the vehicle and key pickup by a licensed and insured member of the national network of contractors who work for Advanced Remarketing Services, Habitat for Humanity’s authorized agent.

What happens after my vehicle is picked up?

Your vehicle will be sold through a national network of diverse venues on behalf of Habitat for Humanity.

After the car has been sold, you will receive an acknowledgement letter thanking you for your support and providing the vehicle sale information. This letter may be used as a receipt for tax deduction purposes; additional tax documents will be provided when required by IRS regulations as a result of the sale value of the vehicle.

Once you specify Coastal Habitat for Humanity, the organization will receive a portion of the sale of your vehicle to continue our efforts of helping families in need of a safe, decent home in Southern Monmouth County.
