Donate your car in Illinois

Are you an Illinois resident getting ready to explore “Mile after Magnificent Mile” in your new car? Don’t waste time trying to sell your old car; donate it to benefit a worthy cause of your choice. Let the Vehicle Donation Processing Center help you find the right Illinois non-profit to accept your vehicle donation. The proceeds of the sale will benefit others, and you’ll avoid the bother of trying to sell the vehicle on your own. It’s an easy way to give back to your community!

Whether you live in the richly diverse Chicago metropolitan area or in one of the prairie towns in Central Illinois, the Heart of Illinois, the VDPC can arrange to take your unwanted vehicle off your hands and get the proceeds to the non-profit of your choice.

Don’t delay heading out to the outdoor recreation mecca of the Starved Rock State Park in Northern Illinois, or the Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway in Southwest Illinois. Let the VDPC save you time and energy by taking care of selling your unwanted vehicle for you. We will handle the pickup and all the processing.

Call our toll-free number from the university town of Champaign-Urbana, or from the capitol city of Springfield, where the famous Lincoln Home National Historic Site is located. You will talk to a real person about your donation. Or, you can fill out an online donation form for the non-profit of your choice. Your benefits include free pick-up, no paperwork to do, and a tax deduction. Call or click today!
