Whether you are moving and have items to remove from the house or want to upgrade your furniture, there are many reasons why you need to have large items transported. Here are some furniture moving and disposal options available to you.
1-800 Got Junk?
There are national junk removal companies, and 1-800 Got Junk? is one of the biggest around. Workers will haul just about anything, including moving large pieces of furniture. There are no limits on the types of furniture they will have available for you, be it large sofas, wall units or even trampolines. Simply call their 1-800 number or book an appointment online. Someone will come to your home to give you a quote on moving furniture, and if that’s okay with you, they’ll transport it to the location.
This company is also careful about how the furniture is disposed of and recycles or donates all possible items so that everything does not end up in the trash.
Some Goodwills offer pick-up services for large donation items, such as furniture. So if the rooms you want to get rid of are still in good condition, this could be a good way to not only make some extra space in your house, but also help others. In order to find a location on your own that offers pickups, call them to find out more. Donating to thrift stores is one of the easiest ways to access old furniture removal for free.
Ask your waste company
Every waste company is different, but some companies like Waste Management offer bulk waste services. It’s an additional cost, but they’ll pick up items that don’t fit in your trash cans or recycling bins. This can include furniture, appliances, and mattresses. Each company has different rules and costs, so contact your waste company for details. If you don’t have a truck to haul the items to the landfill yourself, this is a great option.
Free moving by furniture and mattress companies
If the reason for your unwanted move is to replace your old items with new ones, keep in mind that many furniture and mattress companies offer moving services. For example, Mattress Firm will drop off your new bed and transport your old one.
Head to the dump
If you’re the do-it-yourself type, you might consider going to the local dump. Of course, if the items are in good condition, donating them is a good option. However, if items have rips, tears, or large stains, throwing them away is sometimes the only option. This may require you to rent a truck if the furniture is particularly large.
