We own and operate the Cars for Kids donation program. We operate in all 50 States and we have our friendly donation specialists available 24/7. We accept just about any type of vehicle, boat, motorcycle, RV, pop-up, camper, watercraft, etc. (Running or Not). We have our own title specialists on hand to assist in any title concerns or issues. We offer free towing and can in some instances offer same day pickup. We try to accommodate donors and arrange for free pickup at a time and date that is convenient for our donors. Our policy is to provide temporary receipts at the time of pickup and mail the IRS form 1098C within one week of the sale of the vehicle. We have the ability to provide our donors with on line printing of their 1098(C) directly from our web site.

We own and operate our own Public Auto Auction. We have auctions 50 Saturday s out of the year. When a vehicle arrives on our lot we evaluate the condition and place into inventory. We have our mechanics review each vehicle to determine the vehicle s condition and if warranted we do minor repairs to help the vehicle sale at auction. We verify the status of the vehicle s title and our Title Staff has the ability to provide our donors with the appropriate paperwork to help us with title issues. Once a title has been cleared we put it in an upcoming auction. Our Auction Staff process all auction sale paperwork and file the appropriate documents with the state for processing and titling of the vehicle.
Why should you buy from Cars for Kids Auction? Not only will you get a great deal on a used car, bidders set the price and you know that the proceeds go to support a great organization that has such a great cause, the Texans Can! Academies.
We operate one of the most successful Consignment programs around. We use our leverage as a Public Auto Auction to generate the highest possible sale price for our customers. Our added value of not only local buyers but an increased number of on-line number buyers, allows our customer a significant advantage from that of the typical auto auction process.
The consignment process is a program where we auction off your vehicle, for a small agreed upon fee. This takes the hassle away from you of selling your car; advertising; having strangers test drive your vehicle; making sure the appropriate title paperwork is filed to transfer ownership; and making sure you receive your payment as promised.
We make sure that your vehicle is looked at by hundreds of people and we ensure that your vehicle gets the highest possible sale price and we do so by being open to the public.
