Whether it’s furniture that you’ve inherited or simply just something you’ve outgrown, having unwanted furniture can be a real pain. While you can shift furniture to another room, it can make your space look cluttered and unsightly. Many times you can’t just leave it out on the curb due to HOA rules and township regulations. When it comes to unwanted furniture there are several things to do with it.
How to Get Rid of Unwanted Furniture
How you get rid of your unwanted furniture depends on how quickly you want it gone and how much work you want to do. Some options are more labor-intensive while others are nearly entirely hands-free, so it’s up to you. You can learn more about that on the wiki page we’ve found.
Here at WeCallItJunkin, we’re all about saving things from an untimely end. We regularly look for antiques that can be repurposed and given new life. Therefore, this is the option is one of our go-to methods to get rid of unwanted furniture. Chairs can easily be upcycled into cute garden benches, while drawers make creative necklace organizers, tables, and shelves.
If upcycling isn’t for you, consider getting some cash out of your unwanted furniture. If your furniture is still in good condition you could sell it on your local Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, apps like OfferUp, etc. If your furniture is old enough to be considered an antique, take a trip to your local antique dealer and see if they’ll buy it from you. This lets others enjoy the furniture without it going straight to the dump.
Donating is another option if you don’t want to put in the time and effort to sell or upcycle your furniture. Many different non-profit organizations take furniture donations. Several organizations like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore and the Salvation Army even offer furniture donation pickup, meaning there’s little work for you to do beyond arranging the pickup time. Other organizations that commonly take furniture donations include Goodwill, Homeless Shelters, Battered Women’s Shelters, etc. Some junk removal and trash removal companies also work in conjunction with non-profits that accept furniture donations and will donate your furniture for you.
