Our partners at Advanced Remarketing Services return a higher percentage than any other vehicle processing entity. On a monthly basis, more than between 78% and 86% of the gross revenue generated from vehicle sales comes to Habitat for Humanity.

Your vehicle will be sold on behalf of Habitat through a national network of auctions and direct buyers.

After the vehicle has been sold, you will receive an acknowledgement letter providing your vehicle sale information.

All the auctions and direct buyers used by Habitat are licensed, insured and bonded in the states where they operate. By signing the title directly to Advanced Remarketing Services, you are legally transferring ownership of your vehicle to Habitat for Humanity.

When your title is received and your vehicle is picked up, you are no longer responsible for the vehicle.

About half of our cars are sold to licensed dealers at wholesale auctions and are reused for transportation. The other half are typically transported to auto salvage yards where all reusable car parts, batteries, tires and fluids are removed. Vehicles that can be recycled are crushed, shredded and recycled into steel.

Recycling cars keeps a huge amount of steel out of landfills – enough to build nearly 45,000 steel-framed homes every year. The energy saved each year is enough to power approximately 18 million homes!

Habitat receives funds for each donated vehicle, although a car sold at auction generally generates more revenue than one that is recycled. Every donation makes a difference and the families that partner with us are extremely grateful for your help.

Advanced Remarketing Services is our authorized agent and attorney-in-fact for the purpose of selling vehicles and transferring titles. They handle the title transfer, towing and reporting of all vehicle donations.

Vehicle donations may be made online through the donation wizard or by calling 1-877-277-4344.

We are happy to answer any other questions you may have. Please email your questions to carsforhomes@habitat.org or call 1-877-277-4344.

Tax Benefits of Vehicle Donation

Proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle will help Habitat families in the United States build strength, stability and self-reliance. Plus, it’s fast and easy to do, and your donation will qualify for tax deductions. Take a look at our most common tax questions below.

Yes. Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Contributions, including vehicle donations, may be claimed as deductions on your federal tax return, if you itemize.

Once your vehicle is sold, the selling price determines the amount of your donation. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you may deduct the full selling price. If your vehicle sells for $500 or less, you can deduct the “fair market value” of your vehicle, up to $500.

The following websites can help you calculate your vehicle’s fair market value.

Within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, Habitat will send you a written acknowledgement/receipt. This receipt will include:

  • The gross selling price of the vehicle, if it sold for greater than $500.
  • Year, make, model and vehicle identification number information.
  • A statement that the vehicle was sold at arms-length between two unrelated parties.
  • A statement that no goods or services were received in return for your contribution.

You can learn more by reviewing the IRS documents below or by consulting with your tax adviser.
