Donate a Vehicle to a Charity

If you are looking to get rid of a vehicle you no longer need or want, why not choose to donate it to charity? Eggleston Automotive accepts vehicle donations from all over Hampton Roads. Operational or not, we accept any and all vehicle donations and you are eligible to receive a tax deduction. When you donate a vehicle to Eggleston, you will be working with an Eggleston employee through the entire process. That means 100% of the proceeds go towards supporting our mission and programs.

Once you donate your vehicle, our team will clean, repair, and prepare it for a donated car auction. Your donation helps people with disabilities develop important job experience and people skills. When you donate a car to a charity like Eggleston, you are benefiting the community as a whole.
