We accept vehicles in any condition. Our staff and volunteer mechanics repair as many vehicles as possible. Some vehicles are not economical to repair, but provide income to Wheels4Hope when sold for parts.
Currently, we have locations in the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) and the Triad (Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point). We will pick up vehicles within 60 miles of either of these locations, and use our discretion for vehicles outside of that area.
It’s Easy. Fill out our online form or contact a hub near you. We will coordinate drop off or pick up. If necessary, we will have your vehicle towed to our location at no cost to you.
The title to your vehicle must be reassigned to Wheels4Hope. North Carolina titles require the seller to have their signature notarized. Do not sign the title until you are in the presence of a notary. Our offices have notaries available by appointment. Most banks also have a notary. You may choose any North Carolina notary that is convenient to you. Some states do not require a notarized signature. If your vehicle is titled out of state, please confirm that state’s requirements. If there are two names on the title, both people must sign as the seller in front of a notary.
Wheels4Hope can help you obtain proper documentation if you provide us with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). We can also assist with filling out a duplicate title form (MVR4). You can also go to the DMV and request an immediate duplicate title (cost $75).
We prefer that you schedule an appointment to drop off your vehicle, title, and keys at one of our locations. If we need to pick up the car, we will schedule our volunteer car runners to pick it up at a convenient time.
If the car is not driveable we may schedule a local tow company to pick up your car. Wheels4Hope must have the title prior to the tow company picking up the vehicle.
We accommodate car pick-ups as best as we can. Our volunteers are available to pick up running vehicles on certain days of the week. If your car needs to be towed, we will request pick-up after we receive the title.
No. We assume all costs associated with towing the vehicle to our location, if a tow company is used. However, you must pay all outstanding repair bills and loans encumbering the vehicle prior to donation.
Please remove the license plate prior to donating the car and turn it into the DMV.
After the license plate has been turned into the DMV or expired.
Once you have signed the title over to Wheels4Hope, you can clean out your personal belongings, and leave the keys under the driver’s side floor mat. We will send our first available volunteer runner to pick up the vehicle.
Wheels4Hope will determine whether to place your vehicle into our program or sell it to benefit our organization.
If it is placed into our program, you will be notified by letter and you will be able to claim the fair market value. If the vehicle is sold, you will be notified of the sale price, and you can claim that amount on your taxes.
Vehicles that are in good condition, but not used as program cars, are repaired and sold to the general public to support our mission. You may claim the fair market value as your tax deduction.
