Free Cars for Low Income Families: 1 of 8: 1800 Free Cars Review

A while back I wrote a post called where can I get a free car for my family which became incredibly popular with the Millionaires Giving Money Community. After receiving a lot of comments and emails on the subject I decided to write detailed reviews on all the free cars that are available in the USA. This 8 series post will give details of all the organisations which offer free cars and will give you specific information on how to get a free car for your family. If you need money quickly check out the following posts giving ideas on how to generate money legally. Using these legitimate strategies you could supplement your income.

How to Get a Free Car From a Charity

Knowing how to get a free car from a charity could make an enormous difference to your life and the life of your family. Some of the organisations which will be reviewed in this 8 part series include 1800 Auto Donations, Online Car Donations, Vehicles for Change, With Causes, Modest Needs, Donate a Car, Free Gas USA and Free Car Autos. Hopefully this post will assist low income families who need help with car. Most individuals and families look towards payday loans, short term loans and bad credit loans to finance their car. Before you consider borrowing any money you should try your best to find a free car so you can save your money rather than pay off a loan. So without further ado here is the first review on 1800 Cars.

Free Cars for Low Income Families Review: 1800 Cars

If you’re on a low income and need help with a car you can turn to 1800 Cars to see if you are eligible for a free car. 1800 Cars was established in 1996 and is the first organisation to offer cars to low income families and individuals. The Mission Statement of the company was “To Engage in Activities That Will Uplift Humanity”. The free car organisation focuses its energies into providing free vehicles to assist struggling families who are making the move from dependency to self sufficiency.  

1800 Free Cars operates one of the largest free car distribution programs in the United States and has awarded over 5000 free vehicles nationwide. The award winning program has received acclaim from celebrities such as Oprah, Montel, People Magazine, as well as Disney.
One of the reasons why 1800 Cars give away free vehicles is it has a profound effect on the outlook of a recipient’s life. Many low income individuals and families who have received a free car have remarked how it has helped give them a second chance in life by improving their quality of life and standard of living.

How to Get a Free Car

Who is Eligible for a Free Vehicle?

Most low income families will be eligible for a free car from 1800 Cars. There are some groups of people who will have a priority over others and these groups include the following; (1) Victims of Domestic Violence, (2) Disabled Veterans, (3) The Medically Needy, (4) Struggling Families, (5) Victims of Natural Disasters, and (6) The Homeless.

How Does the Process Work?

There is a two stage process when transferring a car to a needy person. The first stage is where 1800 Cars receive the donated vehicle. Donors fill out a form or call the organisation. A pickup of the vehicle is arranged and then the donor receives a tax receipt of full fair market value which is tax deductable when possible.

Once the free car has been inspected properly it will either be in working condition or need repairs. If the vehicle needs repairs it will be passed on to other organisation who repair old cars and then pass them onto to low income families who need help with a free car. When the vehicle is in working condition the it is offered to needy people all over the United States.

Low income families and individuals can apply for a free car by going to the Free Charity Cars Website. The process is very simple. You need to register for a free account. You then need to write a compelling profiling explaining why you need the free car. These profiles are then shared with the free Charity Cars website community as well as friends and family. When someone reads the profile they can vote for the person to receive the free car. Whichever person receives the most votes is then considered for the free vehicle.

How Can I Increase My Chances of Getting a Free Car?

To increase your chances of getting a free car you need to be in one of the groups which are preferred to receive a free car. This group as mentioned earlier includes (1) Victims of Domestic Violence, (2) The Medically Needy, (3) Victims of Natural Disasters, (4) Families Transitioning from Public Assistance Work, (5) Families Living in Transitional Shelters, (6) The Working Poor, (7) Non-Profit Organisations and (8) Veterans/ Military Families.

To increase your chances of getting a free car you need to create a compelling profile. You need to explain in depth and detail your current circumstances and how you are experiencing financial hardship and financial despair. Explain all the financial misfortunes you’ve had in the past. Once you’ve written about the past you need to write about the future. Explain in great depth and detail how a free car would change your life and how it would uplift yourself and your family.

Once you’ve perfected your free car profile you need to promote your pages to as many people as you can. Start by asking friends and family for votes to get a free car. You can also reach out to the community and ask for votes. You could also personally reach out to the members of the organisation and ask them for advice and guidance. These members include CEO Founder Brian Menzies, Spokesperson Ms. Rose Hill, and site administrator Miss Michelle Key.
You can also promote your free cars profile on other places such as Facebook.com, Twitter.com, Pinterest.com and other social media sites. Another great place to get votes is in YouTube. You can create videos and then reach out to people and ask them to help you out by voting on your profile.

Free Cars for Low Income Families

You should definitely turn to 1800 Cars if you’re on a low income and need help with a car. Before you consider any short term loans or bad credit loans you should see if you can get a vehicle for free. If you’re circumstances put you in one of the preferred groups your chances of receiving a free car increase. If you can promote your profile and get votes actively there is a very good chance that you could get a free car for low income families. In the future I will be writing more about getting help with car repairs for low income families so watch this space.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am 32 years old had my tertiary education in Purchasing and Supply in the year 2013 but jobless till now. I decided to start something on my own by running a transportation business in my country. The main idea was to run Royal Transport as any transport business, starting with ten vehicles but do not have the capital. I am pleading with you if you can be of help in any kind , even if a partner in the proposed business.
    With my vision and mission, we will be one of the fast growing transport service provider in Ghana within a year. Royal Transport will be the name of the transport service I will be offering with a royal treatment. I believe everyone deserves to have a feel of royal treatment at least once in a life time but Ordinary Ghanaians may not have the money to go to expensive hotel to experience royal treatment .The only way for ordinary Ghanaian to have a feel of Royal treatment is through Royal Transport service.
    A free car will be enough for me to start my transportation business with. For now I will like to start with one vehicle and I promise to refund to you any amount you will invest in this business. I should finished paying back within five month even with interest.
    Please your suggestions will be helpful.
    I hope to have a favorable response from you in the shortest possible time. Thank you in advice.
    God richly bless you

  7. This is a last resort because I take pride in working and paying my own way and not having to ask anyone for anything, it all started at the end of February 2015 I finally found a job what I didn't know was they pay once a month, and to get a full check I had to wait until April to get a full check well in February my cars engine seized and I had to take it to the dealership they came in and told me it needed a new engine and that I would have to come up with $500 I had to barrow from my brother, I finally got my car back and it ran really bad and upon looking at the engine it was not a new engine it was the same engine well I ended up losing the car over a dispute of $100 which I paid OTP . Then in April 6 days until the due date they repoed my car without sending notice or getting the proper paperwork after that I lost my job so everything has been going downhill since then no transportation no job no job no home so now im getting worried because I was served by the sheriffs office I have 5 days to send an answer then 30 days to get out .... so if you can help me I will pay it forward and be very grateful
