Have you ever heard the expression “out with the old and in with the new?” That phrase can apply to many things in our lives such as a closet full of clothes that don’t fit because you’ve been hitting the gym or a pile of shoes that are horribly out of style. Or maybe in extreme circumstances, that expression can apply to an actual person in your life! Most often though, when you think of getting rid of the old to bring in the new, you’re referring to your household furnishings. Nothing lasts forever and that’s especially true for sofas and chairs.
When you decide it’s time for a new living room or dining room set, what are you going to do with your old furniture? Chances are you might not have the storage space for it and besides there’s a reason you’re getting rid of it, isn’t there? It’s probably a bit worn out and is not something you can pass on to another family member. That’s when you should call in the services of a Columbus furniture pickup company. Columbus, Ohio, just like most major cities, poses quite the challenge to removing large items from your house or apartment. These challenges include securing large enough trucks and moving bulky items in tight spaces. One appointment with a professional furniture removal company and you’ll have plenty of room for the “new.”
Many companies who sell mattresses throw in the removal of the old mattress as part of the deal. They do this as an incentive to pick their company because they know how hard it is to get rid of an old mattress. You can’t just toss it out on the street and hope the garbage men will take it away: they won’t! And storing it in a garage or basement isn’t an option either because it’s just going to get in the way. All of that applies to new furniture except not many furniture companies over a removal service of the old furniture. Once you’ve picked out a new sofa and loveseat, you will need to call up a professional Columbus furniture pickup service to get rid of your old sofa.
One of the other benefits of hiring a furniture pickup company to remove your unwanted furnishings is that it will give you the opportunity to clean the floors or carpets before the new furniture arrives. Even the best housecleaners don’t often get to clean under the furniture because it’s just too heavy to move. Once the furniture pickup company has done their job you’ll be able to do a complete cleaning of those spots left behind by the old stuff.
You can also make sure that your furniture pickup company has gone “green.” Many businesses are aware of how important recycling and eco-friendly practices are to their customers. Removing old furniture is no exception. That junky sofa or busted up table can actually be recycled. Wood can be chopped up for mulch or sawdust and repurposed in hundreds of new ways. The same can be said for sofa cushions and fabric. All of this means that your “old stuff” could turn out to be somebody else’s “new stuff”; at least part of it anyway! And most importantly, think about how you won’t have to lift a finger to do anything; except of course calling or booking online to set up a free estimate.
