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 Good" with your donation.

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 (where applicable). 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 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 6-8 weeks.
When a vehicle may be registered at time of titling, the registration sticker and hard plates will be available for pick up from our Auto Sales Department. A member of this department will call the purchaser when they are available for pick up. This process can take from 6-8 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.
