Get a Fresh Start: Donate Your Car to Goodwill This Spring!

It’s no secret that the pandemic and supply chain issues have changed the car-buying game. Uncertainty at the dealership has emphasized one hard truth: One of the worst times to buy a car is when you need one in a pinch.

Finding yourself without a car and at the mercy of a dealer’s pricing and timeline is a less-than-ideal scenario. You never want to walk onto a car lot knowing you need a car to get to work on Monday. It’s almost like the salesperson can sense it!

With summer road trips right around the corner, now’s the time to consider making a move and upgrading your ride. But before you get a new car, you may be wondering what to do with the older vehicle you don’t need anymore. Luckily, Ohio Valley Goodwill can take it off your hands!
