How can I donate a1 bedroom trailer home in Naples Florida

I have a 1 bedroom trailer home to give away in the SE Naples, Florida area, as I am getting a bigger model. It is in fairly good condition with fridge, cooker (gas) air condition. It has no hitch or excils and can only be lifted on a trailer for removal. It has a Title and taker has to sign the receiving form.

Google the following two search phrases for several organizations which take house trailer donations - though generally this sort of donation has to meet current building codes so not as easy as it might sound. Most organizations will only take a to-code trailer so they can resell it, because generally they would lose money just scrapping it (as opposed to cars where they can generally make a couple hundred scrapping one).

If those do not pan out, phone a couple of the ones which take cars and ask if they know who in your area accepts trailers.

Note if this is a usable trailer, if you intend to take a deduction on it for tax purposes, you will have to get it appraised (almost no non-profitsprovide a valuation), and the donation value amount is this is going to have to be a formal signed appraisal by a professional appriaser with documentation - not just a one-liner on the tax form.

See IRS Publications 526 and 561, report using 1040 Schedule A (line 17 give or take) and Form 8283 forthe donation appraisal/receipt.


If the donation does not pan out, then selling to an individual or a used trailer broker is an option.
