The 2 Best Methods for Junk Car Removal

Your Best Two Options for Junk Car Removal:

Now that the snow is melting, it is time to endeavor that age old task of Spring Cleaning.  This year, why not include getting rid of that pesky junk car?

As I mentioned in my last blog post, the DIY route can be time consuming, frustrating, and in many cases financially…well, unpleasant.  For the best results, there are two ways to best go about getting a nice ancillary pay-day by taking care of your junk car removal or junk truck removal in the North Shore, South Shore, Metrowest, or Boston areas.

Option #1: You Can Call Us at 617-719-6436

You can obviously give us a call at ARS Towing and Junk Car Removal, and we will give you a fair-quote, pay you, take your car away, and leave you with one less thing to worry about.  We’ll offer you same day and quick friendly service, and you don’t even need the title or registration in most circumstances.

OR

Option #2: You Can Donate Your Car to Charity

With charities, the process is a little different, but one of the best and ARS Towing’s favorite is the 501(c)(3)  Wheels for Wishes.  To get a better idea of their service and how your charitable donation benefits others, visit their FAQ page.

With Wheels for Wishes, it is usually required that you have the Title to donate the car.  Once the call is made, the charity will schedule a time to have your car picked up, and paperwork filled out so it can be filed.  After this, the transfer will begin and the car will then be covered by the charity’s own insurance who will take care of title transfer stuff.

The charity will supply you with a basic receipt or supply you with a receipt stating the final sales price of your vehicle within thirty days of its sale.  You will then be able to claim a deduction on your taxes for fair market value of the vehicle up to $500.00, or if the gross proceeds for the sale of your donated vehicle exceeds $500.00, your deduction will be limited to the actual sale price. You will also be asked by the donee organization to provide your Social Security for the purposes of completing its IRS Form 1098-C form. If your vehicle is sold, all net proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation®.

The trickiest part of the donation is determining the tax processes and filings, but the Wheels for Wishes website provides excellent resources for how to work with the IRS.

 

SO, there you have it.  There are two ways to clean up your yard for Spring Cleaning, and both are excellent options that HELP and ultimately generate VALUE for you!  If you have ANY questions give me a call at 617-719-6436.
