Unwanted furniture, either unwillingly inherited from a previous owner or outdated and now replaced by something more to your tastes, can take up a huge amount of space around a home. The problem is that furniture is not only large, and often heavy, but may require dismantling to get out the doors and all of that requires heavy lifting. Then the problems are only just beginning because most towns don’t let you just put large items of furniture out on the street for collection and taking large items to dumps is time consuming, and often more complex than you expect (opening hours, types of things accepted…). So let us take those troubles off your hands and free up space in your home or workspace by taking away that unwanted furniture for you. We are more than happy to do the heavy lifting and skilled at dismantling larger items of furniture that may have been originally assembled in situ.
Reuse and Recycling
If you’re feeling bad about just throwing away items that have, after all, provided loyal and trusty service for years then don’t be. We know full well that the cost of new manufacturing for furniture is counted not just in dollars but water and energy used in the process and we try to do our bit for the environment when we haul your old stuff. So where possible we will donate old furniture that is still usable, recycle materials that can have a new life, and even repurpose furniture for use as other items. We know exactly where every item should go to ensure the most efficient disposal for your junk and pre-loved items.
There’s another good reason to be careful when disposing of old furniture; hazardous materials. Yes we know, you’re wondering how hazardous a piece of furniture can be but believe it or not couches can be killers. That’s because an old law enforcing flame retardants in household furniture led to plastic cushions and padding across the country housing retardant chemicals that are toxic. So while that old armchair isn’t actually going to jump on you and wrestle you to the ground it is still worth treating with respect and that includes avoiding accidentally ripping open any of the padding. Let us treat those old furniture items with the respect they, and you, deserve.
Cadenzas and Double Beds
While not toxic there are other ways that furniture can pose hazards. Big items like cadenzas and double beds can be seriously heavy and if you don’t know what that means then just ask any chiropractor. Let us do the heavy lifting, literally, and those space hogging heavyweights will just float out of your life.
Still unsure about whether to get professional help to remove those items of furniture? Then there are two ways to play this. If you’re looking at a lot of furniture then you almost certainly need help and to get a price you can get us around to take a look and quote you happy. But if it’s just a couple of pieces and you’re unsure then send us a photo and we’ll send you back a price - then you just say yay or nay, it’s that simple.
