Step 3: Meet the Tow Truck
Please have the keys, signed title and lien release (if applicable) ready for the tow company. Use this check list to prepare:
- Sign and print your name on the title as the seller, exactly as your name appears on the title. If two people are listed on the title, both need to print their names and sign.
- List VetCar as the buyer on the title. VetCar will complete the remaining fields as needed.
- Copy or scan both sides of the signed title for your records.
- Remove license tags, and return them to the Department of Motor Vehicles before canceling the insurance.
Please note:We must have the title to complete your donation.Fill in only the buyer and seller fields. The Department of Motor Vehicles is very strict about titles. They will not accept titles that contain errors or have information scratched out.
Per IRS regulations, VetCar will send you a receipt that explains how the car was used and what you can deduct from your taxes. If the donated car is awarded to a Veteran, you will receive a receipt within 30 days of the car’s pickup date. If the donated car is sent to auction or sold to a non-Vet, you will receive a tax receipt within 30 days of the date of auction or sale. Questions?
