One Community Auto takes pride in helping the Land of Enchantment be a great place to live. By partnering with the local organizations listed below, we are helping to empower groups that are changing lives of our fellow New Mexicans for the better.
By donating your car through One Community Auto, your money stays right here in New Mexico. These local non-profits are on the front lines, providing much-needed services and support, with a local perspective on issues that are important to communities in our state.
We do this by refurbishing your donated vehicle, then selling it on our used-car retail lot in Albuquerque. Most other automobile donation services will just send your vehicle directly to an auction, where it will probably only sell for pennies on the dollar. One Community Auto is different. We will work to get the best possible tax deduction for you by maximizing your car's value, and generating as much money as we can for your designated charity.
If your car is wrecked or won't start, that's OK! One Community Auto will accept anything on wheels, running or not. Even if the vehicle is totaled, you might consider buying it back from the insurance company and donating it to charity. Car donations, truck donations, van donations, bus donations, RV donations, boat donations, ATV donations, motorcycle donations, or any other vehicle donations, we'll accept just about anything. A vehicle that you consider a junk car can help your community
You can also call us if you prefer, at 505-901-9510.
One success story is Gary Peterson, a retired Air Force (USAF) Major and the owner of One Community Auto in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His firm was built upon a lifelong passion for automobiles and his post-service mission of giving back to the community.
After 23 years of military service, Peterson became a business adviser at his local Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC). While there, he was inspired to start his own company and, by working at the VBOC, he learned valuable insights on how to run a business. Peterson took the Boots to Business Reboot course, which helps veterans interested in exploring business ownership by leading them through key steps for evaluating business concepts and providing the knowledge required to write a business plan.
