Pickup Questions

Ready to donate?
You'll be done in 90 seconds!
What is considered accessible for safe towing?

Vehicle donations considered accessible for safe towing are typically parked in the front driveway, in front of the home or apartment building, or on the street and without any other vehicles or other items blocking the intended donation. The tow operators typically cannot access areas that do not have a direct path to the vehicle backyards and back alleyways, nor underground structures. Usually, all four tires should be inflated as well. We strive to consider every vehicle donation, so if you’re not sure whether your vehicle is accessible for safe towing, please let us know and we will do our best to support you.

If you have questions or to donate, please call our helpful vehicle donation specialists for fast assistance at (866) 934-8757
