Finding Easy Furniture Removal in San Francisco

furniture removal san francisco

Many of those over the age of 40 or so might remember the days when hefting a piece of furniture wasn’t a big deal. In fact, some guys could probably pick up a recliner or dining room table by themselves. 

The rest of us were content to hold the doors open! 

However, when you’ve gotten older, or the furniture happens to be a sofa or large credenza, lifting it yourself isn’t really feasible. And moving old furniture out of the house and into the back of a truck? Forget it!

But if you live in or near San Francisco – as more than 880,000 people do – getting rid of furniture is something that has to happen every once in a while.

This is why Junk King San Francisco offers furniture removal services.

Please Take My Couch

With apologies to Henny Youngman, this is a true sentiment for many folks. From the Richmond District to Golden Gate Heights, and from the Mission District to Russian Hill, people are getting rid of old, unwanted furniture.

And it’s not always easy. 

In fact, if you can’t sell your old furniture pieces – or they’re not in good enough shape to sell – and you’re not able to donate them, you’ve still got to find a way to get rid of them. For most folks this means hauling them away somewhere. 

But what does that entail exactly?

Kitchen chairs, dining room tables, recliners, sofas, and bookcases take up a lot of room in a vehicle. And you have to get them out of the house or apartment first. This can be challenging if you have stairs – and who doesn’t in the City?

And once you get your old furniture pieces, or pieces, outside you still have to figure out what to do with them. You can’t just leave them out on the curb, as tempting as that might be. In fact, it’s quite illegal, unlawful, and simply bad form to leave an old couch abandoned somewhere. 

Even if you do put a sign on it that reads: “FREE”

So, you need to get your hands on a truck or large cargo van then haul it all to a waste transfer station someplace. 

Seriously – there has to be an easier way! 

And there is when you call Junk King San Francisco.  

Furniture Removal for San Francisco Doesn’t Have to be Hard, Does It?

Unfortunately, there are people who dump their old furniture on the side of a road, in empty lots, and sometimes they simply dump them in front of a thrift store. 

Yes, it’s unlawful, but if no one sees it happen then nothing further happens. Yet, no one likes having old, broken-down furniture or mattresses lying abandoned in their neighborhood, either. 

Debris, junk, and old furniture can bring down the overall quality and safety of a residential block as well as contribute to a rise in crime, according to numerous studies

Trying to transport old furniture is a challenge, especially if you don’t own a truck or know someone who does and is willing to help you. Once loaded into a suitable vehicle, however, you still have to know where to take your old furniture and be ready to pay whatever the fee is for that waste management facility.

While you might still be able to simply dump your old furniture items at a transfer station or an actual landfill (if you can find one), it’s a far better solution to have your unwanted furniture recycled if it can’t be reused or repurposed.

According to an article at RecycleNow.com,

“Furniture at the end of its useful life can often be recycled, especially items made from wood and metal.”

However, this is a somewhat ambiguous topic since so many wood furniture items are made of material that has been chemically treated in some way or another.

A post from Recycle Nation describes it well,

“End tables, coffee tables, bookshelves, dining room chairs and the like all have one thing in common: They are made of treated wood. That makes them difficult, if not impossible, to recycle. The main uses for recycled wood are compost, garden amendments like mulch or burning it for energy.

The chemicals in varnishes, paints and other wood treatment products make your old furniture a bad candidate for all those applications. More and more furniture items are made with less-expensive particleboard and chipboard, but these products fall in the nonrecyclable category as well.”

However, there are other ways to dispose of these items that do not involve simply tossing them into a landfill.

Our Office Furniture Removal Process is “Green” Furniture Removal

Too many junk removal companies operate with the end goal of taking as much as possible to the nearest landfill. And, while it may seem to be quicker and more efficient, it’s certainly not the way we do things here at Junk King San Francisco.

In fact, our junk disposal process involves taking the junk and trash that we’ve picked up from you, including your unwanted furniture, and transporting it all to our local Junk King warehouse.

Once there, it is all meticulously sorted through. We do this because most of the items can either be reused, repurposed, or at least recycled.

When it comes to furniture, most items are constructed with a variety of materials, and many pieces like stuffed chairs, couches or credenzas need to be dismantled. The good news is that many of the materials are easily recycled such as the plastics and most of the wood. 

While there are other products such as certain foam padding materials that require special handling, all of the steel and aluminum parts can be used as scrap metal, and even all the solid wood furniture can be easily recycled.

At Junk King, it has always been our corporate mission to recycle as much of your waste and junk items as possible since the company was founded in 2005. We have always done this, and we continue to work to protect the planet and provide a sustainable alternative to landfills. Our trained and licensed crew even operates a fleet of bio-diesel trucks for many of our jobs.

We’ve been named “America’s greenest junk removal service” in large part because we understand that you want green removal and disposal of your junk. So, we take care of it for you!
