I want to scrap my car. Will you take a scrap car donation in any condition?
Yes. Scrap cars are our specialty. Even if it hasn’t been on the road in years, we will be happy to tow it away and give you a tax-deductible receipt.
How do you determine the value of my scrap car for purposes of the tax-deductible receipt?
Federal law now allows only the actual value of the car when it is sold, either at auction or to a junkyard. “Blue Book” values are no longer permitted. The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a)the value of your car donation up to $500, or
b)the amount we sell your vehicle for - if it is more than $500. After you donate your scrap car, we will issue a receipt based on this law.
Once I scrap my car, how long will it take to arrange for the scrap car pick- up?
We are usually able to take your scrap car within 1 to 3 days of your call.
Where do you operate?
We are a nationwide operation and will pick up scrap cars from any state.
Do you take any other vehicles besides scrap car donations?
We also accept vans, trucks and boats.
What do you do with my scrap car?
Cars are sold either at auction or to a junk-yard for parts and scrap metal, depending on their condition.
What do I need to have in order for my scrap car to be picked up?

Are there any hidden expenses?
No. Scrapcar.org is totally free to the scrap car donor.
