have anything to be taken to
How do the following sentences with the 'have anything to be done' construction sound to native speakers? It seems that there are better ways to express this idea, for instance, 'Do you want me to...?'
I'm going to New York next week. Do you have anything to be taken to your son?
Have you got any letters to be typed, manager?
'Do you have anything to be washed?' mother asked me.
Thank you in advance.

Have you got...no

We never ask a question as you posed it. No one says "manager" at the end of a question. If you really had to be very formal you might ask:
"Sir, do you have any letters to be typed?"
