Your vehicle donation is the key to improving the lives of others.

Donate My Vehicle Now

Any vehicle, any condition, any charity.

ADESA Richmond works with multiple charities to help improve the lives of others through our vehicle donation program.

Our Mission is to engage a broader range of philanthropic Canadians by providing accessible and inexpensive auction solutions to both donors and charities to promote – and ultimately increase – charitable giving through vehicle donations.

Donate any type of vehicle or power equipment, any time, for any reason worthwhile to you. Charities receive much needed funding while you receive a tax receipt for your donation. Any vehicle can be auctioned; boats, personal watercraft, snowmobiles, highway tractors and various heavy equipment, farm or construction equipment, cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. Big or small, every donation makes a difference!

We’ve made the vehicle donation process as simple as possible for you; fill out the form below and let us know which charity you would like the proceeds of your vehicle donation to go to.

ADESA Auctions can and will sell any motorized vehicle, including cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, boats, snowmobiles, campers and pretty much anything with a motor. It doesn’t even have to be running! In addition, trailers that can be pulled behind a motorized vehicle will also be accepted!

Terms and Conditions

By donating my vehicle, I confirm that I have disclosed all material facts that would affect a reasonable buyer’s decision to buy the Vehicle or the price a reasonable buyer would pay. I hereby confirm that I have not misrepresented or omitted any material facts about the Vehicle and that the information provided above is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, true.

I hereby consent to any personal information provided in the donation process be shared between the charity and the remarketer, ADESA.
By donating my vehicle, I accept that the donation of my vehicle is legally binding and that the donation of my vehicle cannot be terminated or cancelled after the vehicle is sold. The legal vehicle ownership will be transferred from me to the buyer by ADESA at the time of sale.

ADESA will, in their sole discretion, evaluate my vehicle in its current condition upon arrival at its facility. I understand that if ADESA deems my vehicle to have no resale marketability, the vehicle will be valued and sold at current scrap metal values to local vehicle recyclers.

I understand that if my vehicle is deemed to have resale marketability it will be sold either in a wholesale or public auction. I understand that a vehicle’s final auction value is the highest offer received in a competitive bidding auction process. The tax receipt will be issued to me by the charity selected by me. The tax receipt amount will be the final auction value of the donated vehicle less any work/detail that you choose to do through ADESA. Tax receipt values are not based on retail or wholesale automotive price evaluation tools.
