As you can tell by some of the Titles of these places you'd never tell them in the phone book. They like to hide, less work and saves their resources. That's it! I hope and pray that this helps many people to get their jobs, save their jobs, and get to and from the doctors offices.
Where Donated Vehicles Are Sold
Believe it or not, a large percentage of charities sell their vehicles through online auctions, such as Ebay Motors. Depending on the proximity to an auction house, some charities will sell their cars locally through an auction. It is important to note that many of these car auctions are only accessible to dealers and wholesalers - not to the general public.
One technique that can save you a lot of time and effort is to contact the auto donation programs in your area and inquire about direct purchasing. Unlike auto auctions, direct purchasing will provide you with the ability to test drive the car before deciding to purchase it.
When you call the charity, tell them of the type of vehicle you are looking for and your budget. Ask them to contact you when they obtain a vehicle that meets your specifications. Most charities will gladly sell a vehicle to a private individual, rather than
going through the complex auction process.
1. Check with your local high schools and community colleges that offer car repair training. Talk with the auto department instructor and explain your situation. They may also be able to provide repair services at a very low cost.
2. Get estimates from repair shops and ask for financial assistance from your church, a charity, or an organization in which you have membership.
3. Tell everyone you know about the problem and ask for ideas to solve it. Someone may know of a resource that can help you.
4. Call the social services office in your county or city and explain your situation. See if they have any programs, resources or referrals that might be assistance to you.
1. Tell your family, friends, neighbors, and those you work with about the problem.
2. Ask your church and other organizations to which you belong to put an appeal in their newsletters. Someone in those organizations might know of a vehicle that can be made available.
3. Call the social services office in your county or city. Explain your situation and see if they have any problems, resources, or referrals that might be of assistance.
4. Some car dealers let people pay for a car by the week. This is usually called “buy here and pay here” and might work for you with a low income. Call around and see what is available for you.
