Donate Cars 4 Wishes at Columbia

 

DC4W & Columbia Ford Kia

Donate Cars 4 Wishes (DC4W) is the new exclusive car donation program of Make A Wish Connecticut as of September 1st 2015. DC4W accepts donated cars, boats, motorcycles, and RVs in exchange for a 100% tax deduction based on the vehicle's sale price. The money made directly benefits Make A Wish Connecticut.

Currently, the average vehicle in the USA is 11.5 years old, and dealerships are being flooded with owners of these vehicles, potentially trying to trade-in their aged vehicle. Unfortunately, dealerships are forced to give out less and less for these trade-ins, as everyone is trying to trade-in their old, unwanted, "clunkers." While everyone is selling when no one is buying, dealerships are forced to offer much less for your trade-in than what the vehicle is worth. Plus, with increasing dealership expenses and costs of re-sale, dealers end up losing money on the trade-in 90% of the time.

At Columbia Ford Kia, this community-driven dealership is connecting with Donate Cars 4 Wishes and Make A Wish Connecticut to give you a better, alternate option, that will benefit every party included in the transaction. Columbia Ford Kia has offered to become an official Car Donation Drop-Off Location where you can easily donate your vehicle to DC4W & Make A Wish.

By donating your vehicle to DC4W, you will receive a 100% tax deduction of your vehicle's market value, which will most likely be more than what you would receive when selling or trading it in. The money made from selling the vehicle will be directly benefiting Make A Wish Connecticut.

Everyone wins! You receive a 100% tax deduction, that is potentially more than when selling or trading it in, and the money directly benefits Make A Wish Connecticut to help grant a wish to a child.

Make A Wish Connecticut and Donate Cars 4 Wishes want to thank Columbia Ford Kia for all their work and support of being one of our Official Car Donation Drop-Off Locations!

Columbia Ford Kia wants to thank YOU for reading about their support for a great cause.
