Frequently Asked Questions


Yes, most boat donations are accepted, running or not (exceptions include older boats whose value would not offset the cost of towing).

To find out if we can accept your boat donation, please call 833-772-2632, or fill out the online boat donation form.

We can pick up autos, boats, RVs, Jet Skis, and most any type of vehicles and trailers in the Southern California Area. 

Yes. We generally do need the trailer in order to transport the boat.


A local towing company will contact you within a few business hours of your initial call to us. Pickup is usually scheduled for 24 – 48 hours later.

If you need your boat picked up sooner than that, we will try to accommodate you as best we can (most often, we can!). Call us at 833-772-2632


You will receive a temporary receipt from the towing company at the time of the pickup. It will have all your boat information along with our name and phone number.

You just have to notify us once the boat gets towed and we will mail you the tax deductible receipt along with the hotel voucher.

No! Just clean the boat of any personal belongings and leave the keys and title in the glove box.

Pets A Lot and LA Pets Alive has a network of resellers who work hard to get you the most value for your boat. You will be contacted by a reseller to arrange a time of pickup that is convenient for you, free of charge.

Yes. When you donate a boat, we need the title.
We may be able to assist you in replacing it.
