Donate Your Car®


Donate Your Car® is Kids Under Cover’s national fundraising initiative. It’s the hassle-free way to get rid of an unwanted vehicle at no cost to you, while making a valuable tax-deductible donation to help prevent youth homelessness.

How Does it Work?

  1. Click the button below to complete a quick donation form
  2. We’ll contact you within 3 business days to confirm your details and arrange the collection
  3. Remove the number plates before your collection
  4. Our tow trucks will come collect your vehicle (you don’t have to be there) and take it to our auction partner Manheim for auction
  5. We’ll send you a tax-deductible receipt within 8-12 weeks to thank you for your donation. Too easy!

About Donate Your Car®

  • We accept cars, vans, motorbikes, caravans, trucks, buses, tractors, boats on trailers, and much more. Have a different vehicle? Contact us to find out if we can accept your donation.
  • We collect vehicles within metropolitan Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Townsville, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin, and Hobart. If your vehicle is located more than one hour’s drive from one of these areas, contact us to find out if we can collect from your location.
  • We receive 100% of the sale proceeds from your vehicle, which will go towards preventing youth homelessness.
  • If you think your vehicle has a current market value of over $5,000, you are eligible for a valuation by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Your tax-deductible receipt will then be based on the ATO valuation amount. READ MORE or give us a call for more information.
