When it is time to get rid of some furniture your options are pretty limited. Essentially you can donate it, store it or trash it. On the donating front there are many wonderful organizations that will do what they can to pick up that furniture from your home. The Dallas Furniture Bank is a prime example. They have been collecting usable furniture for years and making it available to individuals and families who might need a little help turning an empty house into a livable home.
Although this is a great service there are some caveats. First of all, they have the right to refuse unusable furniture items. That makes sense. If they don’t think a sofa or table is in good condition how can they be expected to pass that onto someone else? They also can only receive a limited number of furniture items. When they hit their quota they stop doing the pickups. Finally, there is a list of items they won’t take under any circumstances. These include:
- Large Appliances (Washers, Dryers, Refrigerators)
- King size mattresses or King size bed sets
- Furniture that is broken beyond repair, heavily stained or torn, or affects hygiene or health concerns (e.g., cigarette smoke, urine, pet hairs, dry rot or mold)
- Toys, Books, Dishes/Kitchen Utensils, Bath Towels
- Kitchen Cabinets, Ceiling Fans, other items that attach to building structures
- Commercial Office Furniture (e.g., cubicles, very large desks)
- Water beds
If you have a piece of furniture that falls into the above category, you might be stuck with it. Without the means to toss it out that item can be stored somewhere around your home. Usually this will mean shoving it in a garage or down in the basement or in a spare room nobody is using. Maybe it’s an old mattress that is too lumpy to sleep on. Or maybe it’s a sofa with broken legs. Now those things are just taking up valuable space in your home. This brings up the third and best option: trashing it. That can be easily accomplished when you hire Junk King Dallas Fort Worth as your junk removal specialist.
Junk King is the Dallas based business that loves collecting junk. They don’t hold onto it very long. That’s because by the time Junk King gets a hold of your stuff, it is meant for the trash heap. They’ll be able to load up that lumpy mattress or busted sofa right onto the back of their truck and drive it off into the sunset. You won’t have to worry about throwing out your back; the Junk King Dallas crew does all the lifting. Whenever possible, consider donating but when it is junk call Junk King DFW.
