Hills in Thousand Oaks CAResidents of Thousand Oaks have the advantage of being close to Los Angeles in the beauty of southern California without being surrounded by the Los Angeles traffic. If you do commute, you know how rough stop-and-go traffic can be on a vehicle each day. If traffic jams have taken a toll on your car, donating it can give you the perfect opportunity to upgrade to a better vehicle.

Driving in heavily populated areas can be stressful enough on its own, so that’s why Wheels For Wishes makes it so easy to get rid of a vehicle you no longer want. Rather than hold on to a car that’s seen better days or is just taking up space in the garage, donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties. Your car donation can do more good than you ever imagined!
