Furniture Removal Services in Downtown San Diego




There are many reasons why folks living in and near Downtown San Diego may find themselves in need of furniture removal services. 


Relocating is a common one. When people move from one home to another, it’s not unusual to have certain pieces of furniture that you no longer want and don’t want to pack and move either. It may be that the piece is too far gone to donate, nor could you hope to sell it. 


So, getting rid of it is a natural decision. But if it’s large or bulky – or both – then getting someone else in to remove it and then haul it away is a typical option.


But furniture removal is rarely that simple…

The Dilemmas of Moving Your Furniture



If you are moving, furniture removal can be a time-sensitive chore meaning that you need to have it done within a small window of time. If you don’t have a truck, some moving equipment, or some capable help to do it all yourself, that means finding a service to do it for you and just when you need it done.



If you’re a renter, there can be an issue of liability for furniture removal. Damage to walls, corners, ceilings, flooring, and doorways is not unusual when people remove furniture from houses or apartments. 



And that doesn’t even take into consideration any potential liability issues for people getting injured while carrying out your furniture removal



Another seemingly insignificant dilemma is the actual distance for furniture removal tasks. It’s one thing to take a large sofa from a living room, down the hall, and out the front door to a waiting truck.

However, having to haul that same piece from an upstairs den, down to the ground floor of an apartment or condor, out the front door, and then across the property’s complex to the street just to load it – that’s something else altogether!



Of course, we haven’t even addressed the dilemma of simply moving large furniture, never mind loading and hauling it. 



Six-piece sectional sofas, for example, can weigh well over 1,000 pounds with each section being close to 250 pounds or more. How do you even begin to move items like that? And a large power recliner can weigh in at 170 pounds or more. 



Things You Should Know Before Starting the Furniture Removal Process

When it comes to the furniture removal process, it’s important to keep in mind that removing furniture does not need to be a DIY function. 



Even if you feel you are fully capable of handling large, heavy, and bulky pieces of household furniture by yourself – or with the help of an equally capable partner – there really is no need to do so when you have easy access to professional furniture removal services right here in Downtown San Diego.



But, for argument’s sake, let’s assume you still want to do it all yourself. With that in mind, here are some tips for moving heavy furniture:



Plan Your Work

  • Map out the path you’ll take with your furniture pieces
  • Measure your furniture as well as doorways, stairways, and corners
  • Gather your supplies and tools such as blankets, dollies, hand trucks, etc.




Disassemble Pieces

  • Many large items, such as dressers, desks, and bookshelves are easier to move if they are taken apart
  • Remove any drawers from dressers to lighten the load



Cover and Wrap Pieces

  • Wrapping your large furniture in a moving blanket or shrink wrap held in place with packing tape to ensure it won’t move or slip as you lift can make handling far easier



Use Furniture Sliders

  • Some heavy furniture can be slid along wood or other smooth, uncarpeted floors with the use of furniture sliders
  • In addition, specialized sliders can be utilized for moving heavy pieces across carpets



Up or Down Stairs

  • Cover handrails and corners with blankets or padding to prevent damaging them or your furniture
  • Use a hand truck or furniture dolly and a partner



Sometimes, however, you may still find that some pieces are just not going to be safe for you to manage on your own. And that’s when you will want to call on the services of a reliable and local furniture removal service.

Couch Removal in Chula Vista : The Complete Guide



Junk Removal Coronado


This thriving city of more than 275,000 residents is not only the second-largest city in San Diego County, but it also truly lives up to its name of “Beautiful City” with some of the most breath-taking views in the San Diego region.


Its scenic harbor, for example, offers dazzling views and easy access to southern San Diego Bay.


Chula Vista’s more than a quarter million inhabitants live in several distinctive neighborhoods that include Rancho Vista, Woodland Hills, Verona, Hillsborough, and Eastlake, among others. But one of the things that almost all those who live in the stately homes, the more “middle-class” neighborhoods, and all the various condos, townhomes, and apartments share is the need for couch removal.


furniture removal guide group 2


Okay, maybe not all the time. And maybe not even more than every few years or so. But when you need your old couch removed and disposed of, you also need to figure how to make that happen quickly, easily, and affordably.


Which is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in couch removal and old furniture hauling.


The Different Ways to Remove a Couch


When it comes to couch removal, the question isn’t so much of how to remove a couch as it is, how do you remove a couch easily, safely, and properly?


The problem is that, in many situations, removing couches is a major task.


And “couch removal” means getting it out of a house, apartment, or other building, and then hauling it someplace for proper disposal. Keep in mind, too, that “couch disposal” doesn’t always mean dumping it somewhere.


So, what are the different ways to remove a couch? 


Well, there are really only handful of options when it comes to couch removal:

  • Remove it yourself
  • Have friends or family do it for you
  • Pay someone to remove it


The first option can be a killer, figuratively speaking. Couches (and sofas) are not only bulky and large, but they can also be quite heavy. In fact, even a small “loveseat” style of sofa can be anywhere from 48 to 72 inches wide and are most often 36 inches deep.


And, while 75 to 100 pounds may not seem like much, try picking one up by yourself!


But that’s on the smallish end of the couch spectrum. A 6-piece sectional couch, for example, can weigh more than 1,500 pounds with each individual section weighing from 210 pounds to 260 pounds each.

All of which are good reasons to enlist the help and assistance of friends or family to manage this chore for you. But the problem with this second option is that not everyone has someone else to help, or anyone else close to them that is capable. 


Which brings us to the third option, paying for a couch removal service. This option is made up of several further options which we’ll look at in a moment.


How Do You Know What Type of Furniture Removal Service Is Best for You?


furniture removal services downtown san diego


When searching for the best furniture removal service for your couch removal needs, you must consider the final destination of your old couch. 


If it is good condition and seems to have the promise of many more years of functional use left in it, then selling it or donating it may be a good choice. In that case, you need to look for services that are part of businesses or organizations that either buy used furniture, or those that are non-profits that you could donate to.


In many cases, this can mean free pick-up of your old couch or sofa, and maybe even some cash for you or a nice tax deduction. 


Okay, but what if your old couch has seen it’s final days already and you know you’d be hard pressed to give it away, never mind selling or donating it? That’s when you should consider the option of furniture recycling.


This means finding a furniture removal service that is not only “green” and eco-friendly but guarantees to recycle as much of everything they pick up as possible. 


And for Chula Vista residents that means Junk King San Diego Downtown.


5 Common Issues with Couch Removal that You Should Consider


So, we have already looked briefly at furniture disposal options and aside from selling, donating, or sending it off for recycling, what else is there?


Actually, when you’re contemplating couch removal there are some common issues that you should consider.


First, what are all the things you can do with an old couch besides getting rid of it?


You could give it a new home in your garage, perhaps, and create a bit of a “man cave” ambience in one corner of that space. You could find a neighbor, friend, or relative who could use another couch, or a replacement piece, and “gift” it to them.


One issue is that you might be considering the old “furniture removal on the curb” option. However, unless you make special arrangements with the city’s municipal waste removal service for bulky item pick-up, you can’t legally leave it on the curb.


The City of Chula Vista considers this “improper disposal.” As their website notes,


“’Improper disposal’” means the discarding of any item or items upon public or private premises that were not generated on the premises as a part of its authorized use.”



Some other issues include


  • Wanting to just dump your old couch in the local landfill. They might allow it, but both the County and City agencies recommend scheduling bulk item pickup instead.
  • Dumping your old couch or sofa on the side of the road or in a vacant lot is illegal and can be a safety as well as a sanitation issue.
  • Moving and loading a coach without sufficient help can lead to injuries. Getting because of poorly planned couch removal is not uncommon.
  • Selling your old but usable couch should include the seller’s condition that the buyer must pickup and remove the couch.


What Materials Can You Get Rid of With Junk King San Diego Downtown?


So, you’ve said to yourself, “I want to get rid of my furniture” and want to know what you can get rid of with Junk King. How about almost anything and everything? 


Aside from items or materials that are classified as hazardous waste, which you can have taken care of through the City of Chula Vista, Junk King San Diego Downtown can take just about all of your unwanted materials.


We invite you to look through our website, especially the “Items We Takesection, and read some of our Junk King reviews. We think you’ll like what you see, and we invite you to give us a call and tell us about your junk and old furniture removal needs. 


Got old appliances? We take those, too. Excess trash or household garbage? Remodeling debris and construction waste? Not a problem!
