Getting rid of old furniture is not as easy as it may seem. Unlike excess garbage, you cannot leave an old couch or table out on the curb next to your trash cans without notice, and many communities may require you to bring the furniture somewhere to be disposed of. Flannery’s Handymen has some tips to get rid of your unwanted furniture without much hassle.
Hold A Yard Sale
Is your furniture still in good condition? Maybe you have a chair that was barely used, or a new couch that won’t fit into your new home. If you have leather furniture, the material can last for a long time, while appearing new. You can try to sell your furniture at a garage sale. Gently used furniture will not make back the money you initially put towards it, but you will make some of it back while benefiting someone else, looking for less expensive furniture. Publicize your sale online and around the neighborhood to make sure people know to come.
Donate Your Furniture
There are several types of organizations that may accept furniture donations. Small businesses, such as coffee shops or bookstores, may accept a gently used couch to add seating to their space. A local theater may accept furniture to use as set pieces. If there is a shelter or charitable organization nearby, they may accept gently used furniture.
Hire a Junk Removal Company
If your furniture doesn’t sell and local organizations are not accepting furniture, you will have to bring your unwanted furniture to the town dump or recycling center on your own. If your furniture is too big to bring to the designated spot, you can hire a junk removal company. They will come to your home and pick the furniture up, leaving you to continue redecorating or packing sooner.
