Let's face it! Sitting around waiting for someone to give you a free car is a "long shot" and is not the attitude you need to portray to people. It's not easy to get a free car, however people are giving away free cars everyday.
To get a free car, you must do three things...
1. Let people know you need a car -
Start by asking family and friends to help you.
Ask your neighbors or associates to help you.
Search the internet for a free car - look in the "free stuff" section of Craigslist, Backpage, or Kijiji.
Use a nationwide searcher such as the USA Craigslist Searcher to find car donors (SEE BELOW)
2. Ask for a donation -
Be bold, yet humble enough to ask for help
Tell people why you need the car - say, "my company cut my work hours..." or whatever your situation.
Remember, don't give too many personal details - this can turn into gossip and destroy your opportunity.
3. Thank them for the car -
Send a letter of thanks or post card and tell how you are using the car.
Expression appreciation and you're done!
Things to Remember About a Free Car Donation...
1. You Need to Look the Car Over and Check Its Mechanical Condition (Use My Checklist)
2. You Need Proper Title to Make the Donation Legal
3. You Need to Get Liability Insurance and a Tag (to Register the Car w/City, County or Parish)
4. You Need to Make Appropriate Repairs and Have It Maintained
Use the USA Craigslist Searcher to Find a Free Car or Help You Give a Car to a Needy Family
To find a free car, type-in the search box above a manufacturer plus "zip or free stuff" - such as "acura free stuff" or "buick zip" or search the entire U.S. for free cars or trucks by clicking on the links below! "zip" is a free category on Craigslist
Acura, Audi, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chevy, Chrysler, Daewoo, Datsun, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Geo, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Jeep, Kia, Mazda, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Opel, Plymouth, Pontiac, Renault, Saab, Saturn, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Triumph, Volkswagen, Volvo
If no free cars are available, look for older model cheap cars that runs and can be bought for several hundred dollars. Ask the owner to let you pay a little each month. Type-in "1982 cto" or "1983 cto" or "1984 cto" or "1985 cto" "cto" means for sale by owner.
Check the "free stuff" section every day and keeping typing - miracles still happens!
To give a car to a needy family, read and evaluate requests being made by typing-in "free car wanted" or "car wanted" or "free car wanted cto" Use your heart and common sense to make the right selection!
Don't get frustrated if a free car is not found! Here's another little trick that will get you a free car - fast. For example, click on the acura link below and go to search. Inside the search box, you'll see "acura barter." Cars appear everywhere! Remove "acura" and add "audi + barter" and so on. Read the descriptions, and find a car that meets you need. What does the owner want? If you have something of value the owner wants, make the offer to trade! To find out more about bartering - click here.
Will This Work?
Yes, however if you expect someone to give you a car, be willing to give something away of value.
Visit the "wanted" section on Craigslist and make someone's wish come true!
It's a great thing to do during economic hard times when people are hurting from job layoffs or plant closings.
