When you buy new furniture, you're left with the problem of what to do with your old furniture. You may even want to get rid of your old furniture a day or two ahead of having your new things delivered so you can clean and prepare the area. Here are some ways you might be able to get rid of appliances, sofas, beds, and other old furniture.
Have The Furniture Store Pick It Up
Ask the furniture store if they can take your old furniture away when they deliver your order. They might not, but if your furniture is in good condition, they may want to take it for resale. You might have the best luck with appliances since an appliance store can use an old refrigerator for parts or to recycle the metal.
Sell Or Donate The Furniture
If the furniture is in good shape or if the appliances still work, then consider selling your things or giving them away. If selling them seems like too much work, or if you can't find a buyer, then list them for free on various online groups or websites. You could also haul them to a thrift store or find a thrift store that will come and pick up your donation.
Set It On The Curb For Special Collection
If you only have a piece or two of furniture, your local trash collection might pick it up at the curb. Call to find out if there's a limit on how much you can put at the curb and how much they charge. This might be another option if you can lift and move heavy furniture to the curb yourself.
Use A Junk Removal Service
If your furniture is old, or if you just want the quickest and easiest way to get rid of it, then use a junk removal service. This service will come to your home and move your furniture out of your house so you don't have to do any lifting. A benefit of using a junk removal service is that you can get rid of everything else you don't want at the same time. If you have stuff piled in your garage or your attic, the junk removal service will clean the clutter out according to your specifications and haul away the things you no longer want.
You can call the service to remove a single recliner or an entire room of furniture and a garage of junk. You only have to pay for how much space you use rather than rent the entire truck. Some junk removal companies take time to sort through your things so good items can be donated and metal items can be recycled. That way only the old or destroyed items end up in the landfill.
