NABC partners with 1-800-Charity Cars for Recycled Rides program

June 7, 2011

June 7, 2011 — The National Auto Body Council (NABC) has teamed up with car-donation nonprofit 1-800-Charity Cars to strengthen the Recycled Rides program.

The partnership is meant to provide a systematic approach to the titling process, as well as a mechanism for paying titling fees. In the past, many charities have assumed the role of intermediary vehicle owners because some insurers that gift vehicles require the title to be transferred out of their name before the vehicle’s release_notes and the start of repairs.

“The addition of 1‐800‐Charity Cars will help us to gift more vehicles and lighten the burden of the titling process from the repair facilities,” said Michael Quinn, co-chair of the NABC’s 2011 Recycled Rides initiative. “We see this as a big breakthrough that will make it more attractive for a local charity to participate in Recycled Rides with a repairer in their community.”

Rocky Pallatto, who will work as the liaison from 1-800-Charity Cars, said once a vehicle is targeted for a specific shop, his organization will start processing the title and handle all the administrative work.

“We want to do everything we can to help make it easier for shops to do what they do best—repair vehicles—so we are taking on all the bothersome paperwork,” he said.
