Spring Cleaning Your Garage? Donate Your Car to Goodwill!

The spring season is finally here, and many people are taking advantage of the warmer weather to start some spring cleaning projects. If cleaning and organizing your garage is on your spring cleaning to-do list, follow these tips to get your garage in shape for the upcoming spring and summer months!

Organize tools, supplies, and storage areas

If you’re like many people, your garage is probably used for more than just parking your vehicles. Garages are also used for extra storage space, or as hobby areas or workshops, making it easy for them to become disorganized and cluttered. Start the spring cleaning process by moving all items outside of the garage, if possible. Then, sort the items into piles to keep, toss, or donate. Overhead shelving, pegboards, and plastic bins are a great solution to keep tools, cleaning supplies, and stored items off the floor and well organized so you can easily fit your cars in the garage.

Clean the garage from top to bottom

After you have organized the items in your garage, take time to give the space a thorough deep clean. Start from the top by using a broom to remove any cobwebs or dust from the ceiling. Then, sweep and mop the floors to clear out dust and dirt, and repair any cracks in the garage floor.

Donate unused or non-operating vehicles to Goodwill

If you have an unused, unwanted or non-operating vehicle that’s causing you headaches and taking up space in your garage or driveway, consider the benefits of donating it to Ohio Valley Goodwill! We make the donation process as easy as possible, with convenient drop sites located across Greater Cincinnati and free towing for vehicles that no longer run. Best of all, your vehicle donation goes further at Ohio Valley Goodwill! Not only will your unused or unwanted car, truck, or SUV be used by someone who needs it, but the proceeds from every Goodwill auto auction support Ohio Valley Goodwill’s programs to support homeless veterans, job training, and provide services for individuals with disabilities in Greater Cincinnati. Donating your vehicle to Goodwill not only frees up extra space in your garage or driveway, but it also makes life-changing differences for individuals in the community.
