Thousands of people in Hampton Roads have found that donating a car or truck to Eggleston is an easy and rewarding way to make the most of a vehicle they no longer need. In addition to providing income, the Eggleston Automotive Center provides training and jobs for the people Eggleston serves.
Donated vehicles are cleaned, repaired and prepared for auctions by our people. Your donation helps them develop important job experience and, just as important, they learn people skills, getting along with fellow workers and dealing with customers.
When you donate your vehicle to Eggleston, the vehicle is auctioned locally, local people benefit, and every dollar realized from the eventual sale continues fulfilling Eggleston’s mission. There are no outside agencies involved, giving you comfort that your donation helps in so many ways.
Plus, the donation is tax deductible! If you’re considering donating a car to charity, donate your car to Eggleston. Call (757) 963-8393 (Toll free: (866) 386-4483) or use our convenient contact form on the right of this page to get started.
