FAQs About Car, RV, Jet Ski & Boat Donations

How can my car or other vehicle help?

Your vehicle donation will help enrich the lives of the developmentally disabled that Bello Machre serves. Your tax-deductible donation will help:

  • Stock the cupboards with food in our new home
  • Purchase a new kitchen table and chairs
  • Install a new barrier-free lift system
  • Finance a new fully wheelchair accessible home
  • Purchase a new lift van to take our folks to work and community outings

Do you only accept cars?

We accept more than just cars! accepts most auto donations, truck donations, motorcycle donations, vans, commercial vehicles, jet ski donations, snowmobiles, motor homes, buses, and even boat donations. The vehicle does not need to be running.

Will I be responsible for towing charges or any other expenses?

No. Our partner will provide free towing services when the scheduled vehicle pick-up occurs. Once the vehicle is picked up, it is no longer your responsibility.

Do you need a trailer to donate your boat?

Yes, our boat donation program is only equipped to pick-up boats on trailers. Not all boats have enough value to warrant us to accept the donation. Within 1 business day of receiving your donation, our boat charity program will contact you to let you know if they can accept your donation. Occasionally they may ask you to deliver it to their facility.

How long will the donation process take?

You will be contacted within 24-48 hours to set up a pick up time for your vehicle.

Do I receive a receipt for tax deductions?

Yes. After your vehicle has been sold at auction, you will receive a tax deductible receipt stating how much your vehicle sold for from Bello Machre that takes about six weeks.

What percentage of the vehicle’s value will go back to Bello Machre?

20% of the first $100 value plus 80% of the remaining value. Ex: Total car value is $1,000.00, 20% of the first $100.00 is $20.00, plus 80% of $900.00 is $720.00= total donation of $740.00

Can I donate if I don’t have the title?

Yes, if you do not have a title, please contact our donation program at 1-877-227-7487. They will determine whether they can accept your vehicle without a title. Some no title vehicles are acceptable.
