How do we do this?
We improve the condition of EVERY donation with minor to major material improvements in order to increase their selling price making it a win/win for the donor and the charity. We are a licensed auto dealer, enabling us to retail vehicles which further increases the selling price of donated property. We also own the auto auction and towing company so we are able to keep expenses to a minimum allowing more money for the charity in the end.
Why donate to Able Heart Charities instead of the “other guys”?
A: The “other guys” are almost always out of state donation programs. Able Heart is an AZ donation program helping Arizona non-profits. Our donors are glad to know that the proceeds of their vehicle is sure to help their local communities. Additionally Able Heart evaluates each and every donation on a case by case basis. Whenever financially beneficial, we will repair, refurbish, and properly prepare donated property for sale. The ultimate goal being to maximize the selling price. Because all our work is preformed locally Able Heart also has the option of selling property on the retail market (not wholesale) in order to achieve the maximum resale value. When feasible, property which is sold at auction, is carefully prepared to bring the maximum price. The importance of giving this kind of superior attention to improving donated property prior to sale cannot be over-emphasized! This unique feature of the Able Heart program results in significantly greater income for the charities per donation. And can dramatically increase the maximum legal tax deduction available for the donor.
Q: Will there be any cost to me?
A: No. Able Heart will pay for the cost to tow your vehicle donation, do any paperwork we assure you will never get charged for anything EVER.
Q: What can I donate?
A: Cars, vans, trucks, RV’s, boats, jet skis, ATV’s, trailers, busses, heavy equipment, and real estate, we accept most vehicles running or not. Because we do business locally we can also accept vehicles without titles.
Q: Can I donate a vehicle that hasn’t run in years?
A: Yes! Able Heart will accept whole vehicles in any condition (Exceptions include few vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing)
Q: How long does it take to get my vehicle picked up?
A: The same day you provide our donations representatives with your information, we will establish a convenient time to pick up your vehicle and have it picked up within 24 hours. (Most pickups can be handled the same day.)
Q: Can this process be expedited?
A: In most instances, we are able to accommodate you if you need to have your car picked up sooner. Just explain the situation to our donation representative.
Q: Is my donation tax-deductible?
A: Donations to any of our participating charities are tax-deductible.
Q: How does the new tax legislation affect how I value my donation ?
A: Under the old rules, when you donated a vehicle to a charity, you could value the donation at the “fair market value.” This year, if you donate a vehicle to charity, you are limited to the sales price if the vehicle is sold. This is what makes Able Heart your best option for donating a vehicle in Arizona. We are able to get you the maximum value for your vehicle because we are handling the donation locally.
Q: Where do you pick up vehicles?
A: Because our goal is to provide our participating non-profits the best service and highest returns on their donations.
