Donate Your Vehicle

ARS supports the Humane Society of Boulder Valley by providing a vehicle donation program. The process is simple, free and rewards you with a tax deduction and with knowing you've made a difference.

ARS arranges for your donated vehicle to be picked up at a convenient time for you, at no charge to you and sold to gain the best price. You will receive a hassle-free tax deduction for your vehicle donation.

ARS accepts virtually any kind of vehicle, running or not. No emissions certificate is necessary.

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Boats (must have a trailer)
  • Motorcycles
  • Planes
  • RVs
  • RV Trailers
  • Some farm equipment and trailers

* We don't accept vehicles that have been dismantled or had their parts removed.

There are 3 easy steps to donating your vehicle:

1. Locate your title - it must be free and clear from liens.

2. Call 888-755-5435

3. An ARS representative will arrange a pick up time with you. All personal items and license plates should be removed.



How do I donate? You can donate over the phone.

What happens to my car? Your vehicle will be assessed for the correct sales venue that will yield the best sale price. Most vehicles are sold through wholesale auctions; older, damaged, mechanically impaired vehicles are often sold directly to dismantlers or recycles for parts. If there is something special about your vehicle, please let ARS know. Every dollar gained from the sale of your vehicle goes directly to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.

How much money actually goes to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley? ARS does not take a percentage of the sale. An admin fee ($55) is invoiced and 100% of the net sale proceeds are returned to the charity. ARS is a licensed wholesale used vehicle dealer.

My car doesn't run; can I still donate it? Yes! ARS accepts cars, trucks, boats, planes, motorcycles, RV's, RV trailers, and even some farm equipment- running or not, no emissions certificate is necessary. We do not accept vehicles that have been dismantled or had their parts removed.

Do I have to pay for towing? No! Towing is free!

How long will it take for ARS to pick up my vehicle? After ARS receives your Donor Information Sheet, tow representatives will arrange a convenient pick up time and location with you, generally within 1 week. Bad weather, heavy volume, and weekends may cause additional delays. Need to arrange a more immediate pick up? Call 720-387-5124  and let them know.

How long will it take for the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to receive the proceeds of my vehicle sale? The typical time frame from the beginning of your submission of the Donor Information Sheet to the distribution of revenue of your vehicle sale to your charity is approximately 4 weeks. Please note, there are instances where ARS needs additional clarification on your vehicle's title for the auction.
