We at CARS are excited to welcome our new associates and partners from CCD! With this new alignment, we can expand our reach and continue to set a gold standard for service in the industry. Many nonprofits rely greatly on their vehicle donation programs as a stable source of funds, and joining forces will strengthen our programs and services. We provide an emphasis on donor satisfaction—offering gratitude for each and every heartfelt donation.
