We Come To You And Tow Your Vehicle For Free

One way or another, you usually end up paying to tow your junk car to a scrap yard. Sometimes, they give you money for the scrap metal, but they subtract a fee for the towing.

Wheels For Wishes comes to you with free towing. We take care of the entire scheduling process so it’s convenient for you. Your donation benefits your local chapter of Make-A-Wish, and you get a great tax deduction.

Scheduling removal with a scrap yard can be a hassle. Wheels For Wishes makes sure the process is easy and free for you.

Donating Your Car Give You A Great Tax Deduction

Scrap yards sometimes offer a small sum of cash for your vehicle. They deduct towing expenses first.

Wheels For Wishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity. That means your donation comes with a great tax deduction! You are helping local kids live their dreams, and it pays to donate! After your donation is complete, we send your tax-deductible receipt in the mail. You can use this on your 1098-c form during tax season to claim your deduction.  

Save Space By Donating Your Car
