Who We Are

Harold began helping charities increase their funding with vehicle donations in 1997 with the help of his used car dealership in Los Angeles, CA. 

Owner of Harold's Car Donation Service


As a California native, he obtained a college degree in auto mechanics and went on to become a factory trained Datsun/Nissan mechanic, working in dealerships for 9 years before opening his own car repair shop. After California began regulating car donations, Harold’s Car Donation Service was formed and registered as a bonded Commercial Fundraiser to help assist donors and charities with the legalities of donating a car.
After a very successful trial run with one charity, other charities began contacting them to come on board. The charities were very impressed with how simple the process turned out to be with Harold’s Car Donation Service to help them with the legal administration and selling of the vehicle. In many cases substantially increasing their ability to fund their programs because vehicles were being sold for more money after going through the highly trained mechanics of Harold’s Car Donation Service.

Harold: The drive and purpose of Harold’s Car Donation Service’s is to help charities help their communities and make the donation process for donors fast and easy. We are very good at what we do.

Please contact us and we will get right to work for you! Donating a car is easy.
A Unique Car and Vehicle Donation Service
Personalized service utilizing 25 years of car repair experience to evaluate each vehicle to determine how it will be best handled for maximum profit. If it is proves cost-effective to have a car repaired to increase profit, this is done. At times this has more than tripled the value of a car. Many cars receive a full detail job making them look their best which greatly increases the numbers of interested buyers which drives prices higher.
Not only does the charity receive more money with this strategy, the donor often also receives a higher tax deduction as allowed by the IRS.
Types of Vehicles Accepted
Just about any vehicle is accepted. Cars in great condition, disabled cars and even wrecks, which currently are getting top dollar. Almost any DMV issue can be easily resolved. Cars, trucks, vans, as well as some boats and RVs. If your vehicle fails smog, that’s no problem! We can still take it and get top dollar for the donation.
