For some people, household furniture is primarily a functional item. In other words, they don’t spend much money on furnishings and tend to select pieces that will “do the job” but may not be potential heirlooms or intended to last for decades.
Others of us invest in furniture pieces, seeing them as both utilitarian items as well as part of our home’s decor. We buy furniture that we expect to be substantial, sturdy, and long-lasting.
So, when it comes to time to get rid of furniture, how people approach that chore is often dictated by how much the pieces cost us when we bought them, and what condition they are in by the time we’ve decided to replace them.
But almost everyone faces the challenge of how and where to dispose of furniture, especially the heavy, bulkier items.
And that’s why Junk King Cincinnati specializes in furniture removal.
1.Furniture Removal and Disposal: You Have Options
No matter where you live in the Cincinnati area, furniture shopping can be exciting. Even if you’re only shopping to replace old pieces that are worn out or even broken-down.
This is true for those of us who live in Lawrenceburg, Camp Dennison, Hamilton, Addyston, and Clarksville.
However, regardless of the reasons for your new furniture, getting rid of the old furniture is still a challenge for most people. Regardless of whether you’re upgrading your furnishings, replacing old or broken pieces, or even making the decision to downsize, you may not be sure how to manage your old furniture removal.
The good news is that there are easy ways of getting rid of them.
2. You Might be Able to Sell Your Furniture
Thanks to the popularity of online shopping there are also multiple platforms available to people for online selling, as well.
Most people know of eBay, for example, and probably the other most popular site for buying and selling is Craigslist. So, if you’re looking to remove some old furniture and make some money in the process, these platforms as well as many others can be a great way to make that happen and make some room for all your new furniture!
Today, the online listing and selling process has become much simpler and user-friendly with online tools that are easy to use.
3. Make Room While Being Green: Recycle Your Furniture
When it comes to disposing of broken-down or unusable furniture, recycling is an option that many people don’t realize is a viable one.
As we all know, recycling is a way to turn trash into raw materials that can then be used to produce new goods that can be sold again. Most of us tend to think of paper, plastic, glass, and metals when we think of recycling – and mostly what comes out of our household trash.
But the reality is that most household furniture is made of, well, you guessed it – plastic, glass, and metals. And, of course, wood.
This means that recycling furniture is definitely a viable option when you need to get rid of your old pieces. And the good news is that most furniture can be recycled most of the time.
So, why should you consider recycling your furniture and what are the benefits?
- Conserves limited natural resources
- Saves up to 95% of the water used to make furniture components
- Prevents waste products from going into oceans
- Preserves forests which help to reduce CO2 emissions
- Reduces fossil fuel use, which also reduces CO2 emissions
Furniture Donation: Doing a Good Thing with a Good Piece is a Good Option
The biggest key to getting rid of your old or unwanted furniture effectively is to determine what you want to achieve.
If you are in a hurry to get those pieces out of your home, then selling them online may not be the fastest path to furniture removal. In those situations, it’s important to keep in mind that your goal is fast furniture removal and not necessarily to make a lot of money.
And, if you feel you have plenty of time to remove your old furniture, you may want to think about what pieces are best suited for selling online because of their overall condition and quality, versus items that might be better off being donated, or even given to family or friends.
In other words, think strategically about which furniture items you would rather try to sell online versus those that you feel should be donated.
For some of us, making some money from our old furniture is not that important, but giving our gently used pieces a new home is. And that’s when furniture donation can be a great option. The good news is that there are dozens of organizations and outlets that will take almost every type of donated furniture items.
In addition, almost any kind of used furniture that is donated will often be sold to provide much-needed funds and resources for those who are less fortunate and at risk.
