About Us

Richard Smith started Car Donation Services in 1990 and it has grown to serve over 200 charities here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

CDS has sold over $1 million worth of donated vehicles five of the past six years. We are large enough to make a difference, but small enough squeeze every penny out of every car. Over the years, CDS has developed a broad base of repeat and referred buyers

We are constantly striving to ensure the maximum return on each donated vehicle so the charity receives the largest amount possible. We achieve this by securing and constantly monitoring low cost and high quality service from the companies we do business with.

In addition we use a variety of methods to sell vehicles, including retail, wholesale, auction, via the Internet using craigslist and eBay, and yes, sometimes a dismantler for those low value cars the "other guys" turn down. We are currently accepting over 95% of all vehicles offered for donation.

Over the years CDS has built a reputation for providing fast, fair, friendly and professional service to both vehicle donors and to the non-profit organizations we serve.

CDS is licensed by the State Attorney General’s office; we are bonded and insured, and we comply with all tax reporting requirements, so not to jeopardize the charity’s tax exempt status, nor your tax deductibility.
