Since you brought your sofa into your home for the first time, how many hours do you think it has been in use? How many different people have sat on the sofa? How many pets have taken a nap there? How many naps have you taken there? How many sodas and snacks have been spilled on the sofa?
Your sofa has seen a lot of action.
The same can likely be said for most of the other furniture around your house like recliners, futons, love seats, beds, and chairs. And, sooner or later, that furniture will either wear out or need to be replaced because you’re upgrading, remodeling, or both.
So, instead of cramming your old furniture into the garage why not get rid of it?
And that’s a job that Junk King San Diego can handle from start to finish.
How Many Ways Can You Get Rid of Old Furniture?
Some people attempt to get rid of “still usable” furniture by putting it on the curb by the street.
But, unless someone happens to be driving down the street the moment that piece of furniture gets placed on the curb and picks it up, chances are it’s going to be ruined in no time. For example, it would only take one session with sprinklers or a visit from a dog to totally ruin that sofa.
And that also means that, if it doesn’t get picked up by someone, it’s going to sit there until the city gets around to picking it up, which could be several weeks.
And if you choose to dispose of it that way, you’d better hope the city doesn’t figure out where it came from! That’s because “dumping” your old sofa or other furniture at the curb is illegal in San Diego according to the city’s official website,
“Illegal dumping is discarding of any waste, whether it is oil, furniture, appliances, trash, litter or landscaping cuttings, etc., upon any public right-of-way, City property or private property, without consent of the owner.”
Another common and popular approach to “old furniture removal” is with a yard sale, garage sale, or advertising the items in an online shopping site like Facebook Marketplace and others.
And this can be a great way to dispose of sofas, recliners, and other old furniture that you no longer need or want.
But it can also take time. And you might be asked to deliver it. Or you may find that no one else wants it either.
Then what do you do?
In those instances, and for furniture that is so badly worn out that you couldn’t give it away let alone sell it, there may seem to be only one other (legal) option: taking it to the dump. Which, if you live in San Diego, is no picnic.
The Joys of DIY Furniture Removal (Not So Much)
Furniture can be heavy.
Okay, maybe not the particleboard and plastic coffee table you bought from some European furniture place for less than thirty dollars! But most furniture is made of solid wood, metal, and sometimes glass.
An average-sized sofa, for example, can easily weigh as much as 240 pounds. And, if it’s one of those bulky sofa bed types, you’re looking at 350 pounds or more! How about a quality recliner chair? Over 100 pounds. And a solid wood dining table that seats eight? That would be closer to your sofa at around 250 pounds or so.
The point is that, in order to get your old furniture to a landfill or, more likely, the nearest waste transfer station, you have to move it to a truck. Then you have to pick it up and load it into the truck. And then, after you’ve secured it all and you haul it to the waste disposal facility of your choice, you have to move it again – off the truck.
All of which means a great deal of heavy lifting.
Oh, and did we mention a truck? Yeah – you’ll need a truck since the average recliner won’t fit into the back of your Prius and probably not even an SUV.
Then there’s the time and expense. Moving, loading, tying down and securing, driving, waiting in line, untying, unloading, driving home… that can make for a long day. Then there is the cost of gas, maybe tarps and suitable tie downs or rope, dumping fees, and – possibly – additional fees depending on the type of items you are dumping.
All of which is why we say that the smarter move is to simply call Junk King San Diego.
