Why a Junk removal Company makes it even easier to Donate

dogs4If you want to donate items to the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill or you just want to recycle a lot of what is piling up at home Call 2 Haul can help. We take the SORT out of the equation for you because you can put everything in one spot, and we will do the sorting for you. Think time VS money.

A gift to a qualified charitable organization may entitle you to a charitable contribution deduction against your income tax if you itemize deduction. According to the Internal Revenue Service, a taxpayer can deduct the fair market value of clothing and household goods.

You may be thinking that a donation of more than $5,000 is a lot. But consider this, if you loose a loved one or someone moves into a nursing home and you, donate sheets and towels, furniture and kitchen utensils, that may be the most practical way of cleaning up. The total fair market value of a large donation like that could easily top $5,000. We obtain a tax receipt for you.

Because we really don’t want to throw any usable junk into landfills, we are constantly looking for places that will accept items we find on jobs. In our search, we have found community centers, local shelters, synagogues and churches can help us redistribute household goods, toys, books, clothes, shoes, appliances, and much more! When we are not able to find a local organization to take our donation, we try to donate directly to the people through online postings. Please email us and let us know if you know of a donation center in our area.

Here are just some of the items that we recycle and donate:

Appliances Books Cardboard Carpeting
Clothing Electronics Furniture Glass
Housewares Metals Paper Plastic
Styrofoam Televisions Tires Yard Waste

Think about parting with books you no longer look at. If you are looking to downsize, books are something to give up if you don’t think you will read them again.  You could also get a reader like a Kindle and borrow books from the library that way.  You can explore the Free Library of Philadelphia HERE. If you have a Pennsylvania Library card you are eligible to be part of this Free Library.
