Why ACTION CAR DONATION SERVICES™ is the BEST SERVICE to use when you Donate a Car, Truck, Boat, RV, Motorcycle, Aircraft or other Property Donation in the Los Angeles area:


trusted and exclusive

We have next to Los Angeles County a two acre processing center where we maximize the value of donations benefiting the donor and the charity. We do this by “fixing up” and selling donations when feasible in both the wholesale and retail markets. We believe that we are the only company in the area processing donations for some of America’s finest charities in a way that maximizes the potential tax deduction for donors and maximizes the income going to the charity!

Action Donation Services® provides “Donate a Car” and “Donate a Boat” services for a number of America’s premier charities in the Los Angeles area. We follow all DMV procedures and IRS guidelines. When you donate your car we provide all the required receipts and IRS forms promptly to donors.


Many car donation programs simply pickup the vehicle and take it to a recycler or a wholesale auction. We do much more whenever it is financially beneficial to the charity and the donor! Maximizing the dollar value of donations greatly benefits both the donor and the charity providing increased income for the charity and the highest possible legal tax deductions for the donor. Current tax law in most cases only allows a deduction equal to the gross selling price of your donation when sold for the charity. Therefore it is very important that when you donate a car or other property that you use a service to process your donation that is committed to maximizing the selling price of your donation. Our service does so – most of our competitors do not. Our program also offers the potential of partial cash payments (IRS “bargain sale”) to donors for higher value donations. In addition to having our own auction and retail facilities convenient to Los Angeles, we contract with the most reputable towing and auction companies in the nation, allowing us to minimize handling fees and maximize the return on all donated property nationwide. Action Donation Services is totally dedicated to providing friendly and competent customer service to every donor.

Donors love our service!


“I owned a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado that I absolutely loved. However, it needed some very expensive repairs. A couple of years ago I had donated another car to Ronald McDonald House and it was a great experience. I wanted another good experience so I called Action Donation Services and everything went very well. I couldn't have been more satisfied. Everyone I came in contact with was friendly and their response time was unbelievable. They explained everything to me so I could understand it and made the whole process simple. When they sold our donated vehicle, my husband couldn't believe what they got for it. Our tax deduction will be a lot more than we expected!”


--Thelma, Riverside, CA, (ID#613965)—


“We thought about trading in or selling our old trailer so we could get a new one but figured we couldn't get much for it. We are so happy we decided to donate it to charity instead! ADS did an incredible job in refurbishing our old trailer after we donated it and then sold if for twice what we thought we could get for it. We appreciate the fact that we got a great tax write-off and we were also able to help a great charity. Action did a great job for us and we recommend them to anyone in a similar situation."


-- J & G, Temecula, CA, (ID#922868) --


“We hoped the sale of our boat could somehow benefit our local Naval Medical Center, where our daughter received such wonderful care. Action Donation Services made it happen! From that first phone call on, we knew we were working with an outstanding organization and one that shared our commitment and enthusiasm for the Armed Services community. ADS went above and beyond in improving our sailboat and truly maximized our donation potential. Their passion and expertise took our donation a long way. We were thrilled to not only reach, but surpass our donation goals! Action Donation helped us repay our favorite medical team in a much bigger way than we ever thought possible by processing our donation in an efficient and professional manner."
