Moving is a hassle. Everything from making an inventory of the items to be moved to collecting moving supplies and arranging for transportation can be overwhelming. The additional stress of having to lug old furniture to your new home can be off-putting. You certainly want to avoid moving items that you don’t need any more to your new home to save valuable space and make the whole moving process much easier.
While it’s a good idea to get rid of your old furniture before you move, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what to do with the bulky pieces of furniture.
In this article, we’ll share some suggestions on how to get rid of furniture you no longer want.
Holding a garage sale is an effective way to get rid of old furniture before you move. A garage sale is ideal when you want to get rid of other unwanted possessions, such as clothing, appliances, tools, toys, home décor, musical instruments, and more. Make sure you publicize the event and give the buyers a good deal.
You can always donate used furniture to charitable organizations. As long as the furniture pieces are in good overall condition, there are many charitable organizations that can find a beneficial purpose for them. The organizations can arrange a collection from your home or they may require that you deliver the furniture to their store. Do a simple Google search to find charitable organizations that accept used furniture.
If you don’t want to go through the hassles of selling your old furniture before moving, you can gift it to your friends and family. Ask your friends and family members if they would love to have the furniture. You can take a photo of the furniture and post it through messaging apps like WhatsApp. Although this option does not bring money, it takes the burden of moving bulky furniture off your shoulders.
Another effective approach to getting rid of old furniture is to take a picture of the furniture you want to sell and post it on the Craigslist website. You can also sell your old furniture on eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree, and auction houses.
When you can’t sell your old furniture or donate it, the next step is to call a reputable junk removal company to help you haul it away. A junk hauler will come in with pickup trucks or flatbed and haul away the furniture.
