Want to Get Rid of Your Floating Home Quickly Before It Sinks?

Owning a houseboat can be such a fun and unique experience. It gives you the freedom and flexibility to move your home anywhere on the lake or bay where it’s floating, allowing you, your family, and guests to enjoy scenic waterfront views and live the minimalist lifestyle that comes with living on a boat.

Unfortunately, there will come a time when your vessel starts showing signs of disrepair. The older it gets, the more frequently it will experience issues — issues that will cost you a fortune to fix. If your houseboat is already in this state and its accumulated repair and maintenance bills have already reached sky-high, you’re left with no other choice than to say goodbye to it.

No matter how much sentimental value that vessel holds, getting rid of it is the practical thing to do. If you’re thinking of selling it, that might only bring you more headaches, which you surely don’t deserve. You’d need to have it fixed and refurbished to make it attractive to potential buyers — and that would cost you plenty of money. Moreover, you’d need to exert tons of energy and spend a lot of time looking for a good buyer.

There’s a much simpler solution that will take just a couple of minutes of your time and in the comfort of your home: Donate that houseboat to us at Goodwill Car Donations. It’s not only a hassle-free option to dispose of an unwanted boat, but this charitable deed with also allow you to be of service to your community as you extend a helping hand to the struggling underprivileged folks living among you.

We’ll have your houseboat auctioned off to generate funds for the Goodwill organizations serving your local area. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits are dedicated to helping disadvantaged Americans — those who are saddled with disabilities, lack of education, job experience, or essential skills, and other limiting personal issues, such as being welfare-dependent or having past prison records.

Your local Goodwill organizations use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with job and skills training, employment opportunities, scholarships, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, family support, educational services, financial assistance, and many other essential support services.

These services will equip your needy neighbors with the tools that they need to attain economic independence and enjoy a better quality of life.
