Donate Your Car
We’ve seen your car…and we still want it!
To donate your car call contact John Shoemaker at 850-656-8000
Location: 2800 W. Tennessee Street in Tallahassee, FL.
We accept donated cars throughout the 22 counties in the Big Bend that we serve. At this time, we only sells cars in Tallahassee. Vehicles donated outside of Tallahassee are brought back to Tallahassee to check, clean, and sell.
Companies such as Boeing and St. Joe Paper have donated, as well as individuals. Donations have included vans, RVs, Mustangs, Toyota’s and more.
In Panama City, vehicles may be taken to the Goodwill facility at 3207 E. Fourth Street Panama City, FL.
A vehicle does not have to be running to donate it. Goodwill provides free towing, usually the same day. The donor does not have to be present when the car is picked up, but the title is required at the time of the donation.
Once Goodwill has possession of the vehicle and its title, the donor receives a receipt which explains how the IRS handles car donations. Basically, you get to deduct a minimum of $500 or a maximum of whatever the car sells for. If Goodwill sells the car for more than $500, you will get a follow up letter and the IRS form.
Goodwill sells most cars from the Tallahassee car lot within one to two weeks. The cars are priced well below dealer prices, many between $1,000 and $2,000. They also have handyman specials and cars that mechanics buy for parts.
Goodwill does not finance vehicles. All are cash sales.
Like donated items sold in their stores, Goodwill does not give cars away. Low prices make them more affordable and income from their sale helps fund wages and expenses for jobs and job training for people with disabilities and other barriers.
