Nearest scrap yard? If driveable.

The metal must have some value

Park it on the side of the road, unlocked with a £1000 for sale sign on it. It'll be gone in the morning, sorted

If it could be used as a launching trailer, you could put an advert on here - free to a good home, donation to RNLI or similar.

Alternatively there's quite a few scrap metal merchants / collectors in Portsmouth that would take it off your hands.

I'd agree with Ebay. List as spares or repairs for a fixed £25... it should sell quickly.
