Thank you for considering The Salvation Army Vehicle Donation Program as the recipient of your vehicle donation. When you donate your vehicle to The Salvation Army, you are helping us heal broken lives and assist individuals on the road to recovery. Proceeds from the sale of your donated automobile are used to help fund The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation program in your area.
All donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS rules and regulations!!!
How do I donate my vehicle?
To schedule your donation pick up simply call 214-630-5611 prompt 2 (or extension 56014) and speak to our Vehicle Donations Department.
What do I need to donate my vehicle?
You will need the vehicle's license plate number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to get the process started. The process only takes about 10 minutes!
You will also need a clear title, which means, the vehicle must be titled in the donor's name (for vehicles that the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires a title for).
What types of vehicles do we accept?
Cars, Trucks, Vans, SUVs, Crossovers, Boats, Trailers, RV's, Campers, Scotters, Motorcycles, Dirt Bikes, etc. Running or Not!
We offer FREE towing, so there is absolutely NO expense to you when you donate your vehicle. We do ask that if you need to cancel or change your towing pick up for any reason that you call the towing company so they don't come out for the pick up (we will get charged for a pick up even if you do not hand over the vehicle).
Thank you again for choosing The Salvation Army Vehicle Donation Program as the recipient of your vehicle donation and helping us achieve our mission of "Doing the Most the Good" with your donation.

Payment may be made with cash, check, debit or credit card (MasterCard and VISA). Payment of wining auction bids on vehicles should be paid immediately following the close of the bid on the specific vehicle. A credit card may be placed on hold at the payment window for bidders who wish to bid on multiple vehicle(s) and purchase them all in one payment at the close of the auction. A deposit of 10% of the purchase or $100 (whichever is greater) is required to hold the vehicle for the balance payment. The balance must be paid and title work completed by 3:00 p.m. on the next Wednesday following the auction or the deposit will be forfeited and the bidder will be banned from future auctions.

All titles must be registered in the full legal name as it appears on the Buyer's Texas Driver's License (no exceptions).
It is preferred that the bidder take their vehicle(s) with them after payment and at the close of auction. All vehicles must be removed from The Salvation Army Dallas ARC property by the next Friday after the auction or a storage fee of $5.00 per day per vehicle will be charged to the bidder at the time of pick-up before the vehicle(s) is/are released. Pick up times are Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Title Transfer & Registration:
After you have paid for the vehicle(s) you have won at our Vehicle Auction, you will complete paperwork which will include all necessary forms for the transfer of the title and registration of the vehicle(s) into your name. Payment for these services will be incldued in your final purchase price.
Our Vehicle Donations Department staff will process this paperwork with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. The title and registration paperwork for the vehicle(s) in your name will be mailed to the address you have provided for us at registration directly from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. This process can take from 4-6 weeks.
A Bidder may be banned for several reasons. Here are just a few:
(1) Registering with one name and then wanting to title the vehicle in someone else's name.
(2) Bidding on and winning a vehicle and then not fulfilling the payment and titling requirements. Example: Walking out after winning a vehicle without paying.
