Does my car need to start and drive?

No, you can donate a car that doesn't start and drive.

We may ask you whether your car starts and drives. By telling us that it does start and drive you're declaring that there are no mechanical or electrical problems and we will assume you have the keys.

After you've arranged to donate your car, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your car donation and provide further details.


If you still have questions, you can find all of the answers in the following categories:
