People donate cars and trucks to charities every year, but many different charities are also in need of boat trailers and other hauling equipment. If you have an extra trailer, or you have recently bought a new trailer, you can donate it to the charity of your choice and earn a valuable tax deduction. Rather than spending your time fixing up your trailer and spending your money advertising it in the paper, you can give it to a charity.

When it comes to donating a boat trailer, or other type of trailer, it's important to have the title and registration. Charities cannot sell trailers and other vehicles without proper documentation. If you no longer have the paperwork or you've misplaced it, you can contact the DMV to order replacements. Some charities will do this for you, so it's a good idea to ask before you call the DMV for yourself.

Easy Steps for Donating Your Trailer

The great thing about donating a trailer to a charity is the ease with which these items sell at auctions and other fundraising events. People who own boats simply cannot get them to water without the use of a trailer. Since most trailers take their power from the vehicle engine, they don't need much in the line of mechanical repairs in order to sell them.

If you're thinking about donating a trailer to charity, you can find a number of organizations that will actually pick up the trailer from your home. Donating your trailer is never more than a phone call away. Some charitable organizations even provide donors with online vehicle donation forms for added convenience.
