Furniture Disposal: How Junk King Can Save You Money

furniture removal


With inflation, rising prices, and gas costing almost six dollars a gallon, it’s understandable that people want to find ways to save money. And this extends to the costs of getting rid of old furniture.


In addition to saving money, most of us seem to be busier than usual, especially if we’re working more than one job just to “make ends meet.” And the prospect of taking the time required to move old furniture out of the house, out to the driveway or sidewalk, and then loading it all into the back of a truck is distressing.

Not to mention the time required to drive all the way to the nearest waste transfer station or, worse yet, to one of the few landfills in San Diego County.


So, what can you do about old furniture disposal while still saving money? And time?


Why Furniture Removal is Important


Furniture Removal and Disposal


No matter how large your home is, there’s still only so much space for furniture. So, when the time comes to replace a piece or two – or even entire rooms of furniture – most of us need to have some old furniture removal take place. 


Who needs two dining room tables, for example? Or four sofas? Even large, palatial homes only have so room for furniture pieces. And, while that might seem like a somewhat silly illustration, the reality for many homes is that old pieces of furniture often end up in spare rooms, attics, basements, or – more often than not – in the garage.



New Call-to-action



And because most furniture takes up quite a bit of space, most homes don’t really have the room for old furniture storage. Which is why furniture removal is important. So, when new pieces are purchased, the removal and disposal of the old pieces must be taken care of. 


And, when it comes to furniture disposal, you will never go wrong with making a call to Junk King San Diego.

How to Choose a Professional Junk Removal Company in San Diego


Junk Removal La Mesa


There are probably many other factors that can go into choosing a professional junk removal company in San Diego. But there are just a few that are most important and should always be considered when selecting the firm you want for this task.


Reviews and Reputation


When vetting junk removal companies, it is critically important to read reviews, as well as getting word of mouth referrals from trusted friends and colleagues. Regardless of how flashy their ads, website, or logos, when it comes to reliable junk removal, the “proof is in the pudding,” as they say.


For example, when it comes to Junk King reviews, San Diego residents are unanimous: “These guys are great!” – Jack P.


Our high number of five-star reviews testify to the fact that Junk King San Diego provides reliable trash hauling and junk removal. 


Fair and Transparent Pricing


There are several pricing schemes that junk removal and furniture disposal firms can use. The problem is that many of them are confusing and don’t always favor the customer in the end.


For example, some firms charge by the weight of your load. This can simply mean that six pieces of lower-end, lightweight furniture could weigh far less – and be charged less – than a load of more expensive but old pieces that weigh far more.

Others charge a flat fee, while there is no shortage of firms that have added fees or extra charges, and that are not always clearly noted.


Junk King has always stood by the philosophy of providing fair and transparent pricing for our customers and we only charge by the space your junk – furniture and otherwise – takes up in our trucks.


Green and Eco-Friendly


Being “green” is one of those things that, today, every company wants to be onboard with, but too many are just saying it and they’re not really doing it. 


Taking junk, debris, and waste to our landfills day in and day out is the farthest thing from being green. In fact, the only alternative that is worse would be to engage in illegal dumping. And when you consider that up to 80 percent of the solid waste we throw out each day is potentially recyclable, it makes less sense to operate that way.


Not at Junk King. We pioneered the concept of green, sustainable junk disposal when the company was first founded back in 2005, and we continue to be green to this day. All of which means that we endeavor to recycle or reuse up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up in the San Diego area – including old furniture.


Why Junk King Has the Best Services in the Industry


Old couch disposal


Junk King has been rated as Number One for service in our industry and our reputation really does speak for itself. And, as we noted earlier, our customers love us, and their hundreds and hundreds of five-star reviews underscore the quality of our service. 


In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say we are one of the best furniture removal companies in the San Diego region. 


From reliable and affordable residential junk removal services to professional and insured business-to-business commercial junk removal, we cover it all. And we do so in a friendly and courteous manner regardless of the customer.


And, best of all, we always do all the heavy lifting, and we even sweep up after ourselves when we’re done!


Important Tips to Keep in Mind When Using Furniture Removal Services


Any furniture removal company worth their salt will never require you to bring your old furniture pieces out to the curb or your driveway. Part of the service you’re paying for is “full service” furniture removal, or at least it should be.


Also, avoid hiring furniture removal service companies that only offer you a six or eight hour service window on the day they’ve scheduled for picking up your old furniture. A quality and reputable firm will always value your time and work to make everything as convenient for you as possible. And they’ll show up on time, as promised. 


Find out if the furniture removal service you are considering has processes for donating your used but still usable pieces. And, while you’re at it, you might want to confirm with them that they actually do work to recycle as much unusable furniture and other junk that they can. 


Finally, any trustworthy and professional furniture removal service will be able to provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate or quote before they load your items. 


Why Hire Professional Furniture Disposal Service and Make This an Easy Process?


The truth is that, if you have a large pickup truck or can get hold of one, you can probably manage your own furniture removal and disposal. Of course, that would also mean that you can manage moving, lifting, loading, and then unloading all your old furniture items.


In addition, you would need to be able to secure your own load, know where you can take your old furniture to dispose of it legally, and know what items may or may not be accepted for disposal. Not everything is at every facility. 


And, as we alluded to at the start of this article, you would need to have the available time for doing all the work as well as being willing to spend the money on fuel and dumping fees. 

Or you could go the far more cost-effective and less time-consuming route and hire a truly reputable furniture removal service like Junk King San Diego!

How to Dispose of a Couch in San Diego

Have you ever found yourself driving from San Diego out to, say, Jamul or Poway, for example, and along the way after you’ve gotten out of the city you see an old couch sitting in a field? Or maybe it’s not even that far from the road!


We’ve probably all seen the old sofa, couch, or recliner that has been surreptitiously dumped onto a dirt shoulder of a backroad somewhere. 


furniture removal guide group 2


Not a pretty sight. And quite illegal, by the way.


However, most of us would never consider taking this drastic and totally uncool alternative to disposing of a couch in San Diego. Unfortunately, when it comes to old couch disposal, most of us are also hard pressed to figure out how to do so easily and affordably.


What is the Best Way to Dispose of My Couch?


If you live in or close to San Diego, couch disposal can be challenge. In fact, for those who live in San Diego, furniture disposal of any kind can be challenging.’


Sure, you can grab your phone and do a search for “San Diego couch pick up” or even “how to get rid of sofa” but most of the options that can pop up are either costly and require you to have a truck or some other means of transporting an old couch.


Never mind just moving or picking the thing up!


Couches, as you have probably already figured out, are heavy. In fact, depending on the size and the construction of your old couch, it can be well over 200 pounds. And if you’re lucky enough to be stuck with an old sofa bed unit, it could weigh up to 350 pounds. 


This is not quite the same thing as moving a club chair or even a loveseat. And to dispose of an old couch yourself also means not only moving it out of the house or apartment but also lifting and loading it onto a truck bed.


So, to answer the question, “What is the best way to dispose of my couch?” it is simply this: have someone else do it for you!


How to Dispose of a Couch in San Diego with No Hassle


Couch Removal



In order to determine how to get rid of old couches in San Diego, you could start by searching for couch removal services or, better yet, an old furniture disposal service in San Diego. More than likely, however, you’ll probably just find a series of general hauling services and the odd person or two who takes old items like couches to refurbish and resell. 


For many of these services you have to navigate through their booking process, interpret their often confusing pricing arrangements, and then end up with a four, six, or even eight hour time window on a day that they’re available. 


If, however, your old couch is still in good shape and could actually serve its purpose for a few more years, you could consider either selling it or donating it

In order to sell your couch with no hassle, you’ll need to use one of the more popular, free sites for selling items such as furniture, like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. And you will need to specify that the buyer is responsible for pick up and removal. 


Donating might be a commendable alternative, but it isn’t always a “no hassle” process when it comes to bulky items like old furniture unfortunately. 


Many non-profit organizations and charities that do accept item such as used couches will also require that you deliver it to their location yourself. And, as we’ve already noted, that can be a hassle. In addition, not all organizations accept donations like old couches so you will have to do some research beforehand.


However, there is a sure-fire “no hassle” approach to disposing of your old couch and that’s by making a call to Junk King San Diego


And we’re affordable, too!


How Much Does It Cost to Get Rid of a Couch?


Even disposing of your old couch or sofa yourself will require some cost. Fuel and waste management disposal fees, for example. And possibly truck rental and some materials for securing your load for the trip to the nearest waste transfer station.


To determine the average couch and sofa removal prices in the San Diego Area, you could look online at some of the several home services directory-type sites. One popular site notes that the typical range for “furniture and mattress removal” is $75 to $200.


And, while that works for getting a rough “ballpark figure,” it doesn’t let you know what your project is really going to cost you.


The best way to determine your actual couch removal and furniture recycling cost is to get an estimate directly from a reliable and local furniture removal service – like Junk King, for example. 


In fact, with Junk King, you can actually get an estimate on your own with our online Pricing Estimator


Top 3 Ways You Can Dispose of Your Old Couch


While there are probably many more ways to dispose of that old couch, not all of them are great options nor affordable. And some are just plain poor alternatives. The good news is that there at least three great ways for you to get rid of your old couch.


Sell It


We mentioned this option already, but it bears repeating: if your old couch is clean and still in good condition, there is probably no reason you can’t earn some cash from it. 


How much cash? 


Well, if it’s in really decent shape and is a large sectional, for example, you might be justified in asking up to $1000 for it. On the other hand, according to one site, not so long ago the median price of a used couch or sofa was $250 dollars.


Donate It


Again, we touched on this alternative earlier in this article, but it, too, bears repeating. 


A couch or sofa can be a wonderful addition to a group home, a lounge in a woman’s shelter, or in the home of an older resident that is on a fixed income. And these are just a few of any number of scenarios where a used couch can be a welcome and needed addition.


So, where can you donate couches in San Diego?


Here are few places to look online:
