Who runs this car donation program?
This program is a legacy of the public radio show Car Talk. For more than three decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers) answered listeners' questions about cars, and provided laughs, comfort, and trustworthy advice to millions. While Tom passed away in 2014, Ray and the rest of the staff decided to continue this program as a way to give back to the stations that were our friends and partners for decades–and whose programs we listen to every day.
Along with our car donation partners, we're proud to work with your local public radio station and help you turn your car into more of the programs you love. And we thank you for the help you are providing to our hard-working stations!
How much of the money is returned to Marketplace?
Our partners at Advanced Remarketing Services return 70-80% of the gross selling price for car donations back to Marketplace, to support the business and economics news you love.
What kind of vehicles can I donate?
We accept almost all car donations. We also accept trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, trailers, RVs, boats, and planes are accepted on a case-by-case basis. You can donate your car online or by calling us at 1-877-215-0227.
