Vehicle Donation

Thank you for considering The Salvation Army Vehicle Donation Program as the recipient of your vehicle donation.  When you donate your car 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 ext. 118 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.

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.

Auction Banning:

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.
