Bulky Junk: Sofa Removal Made Easy

Do you live or work in a home or office with an outdated sofa? Too many homes and workplaces have decades-old furniture that really just looks like an eyesore. Old sofas typically have stains, creases, faded colors and all sorts of other unpleasant characteristics. Nobody wants to sit on them and they are not pleasant to look at. Some old sofas even carry nasty odors that just can’t be scrubbed out no matter how hard you scrub.

If your sofa is ready to be replaced, the first step is to find someone or some way to handle the existing sofa removal.

Don’t try to Remove that Heavy old Sofa by Yourself

It is awfully tempting to slide that old, dirty and ugly sofa out of the living room, through the doorways and out to the side of the curb. However, the sofa will likely sit there for weeks until your local large item removal crew swings by to pick it up. Perhaps they will not have the resources available to remove it. Or, maybe there is a fee in your jurisdiction for large item and/or sofa removal.

How to Dispose of Old Furniture The Right Way

As time passes, junk will inevitably pile up in your home. This includes old furniture. Even if you don't have a pile of old furniture in your basement that you don't know how to deal with, you might just want to buy some new furniture to upgrade your home's style — but your old furniture is in the way. Regardless of why you want to get rid of it, you've got to figure a way to dispose of your old furniture properly, because putting it out on the curb with the rest of your garbage just won't work. Here is how to dispose of old furniture:

How to dispose of old furniture that is in great condition

 

Sell it

When thinking about how to dispose of old furniture, you may have considered what value you could get out of it. This is smart thinking, because a single piece of high quality, good condition furniture can net you anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. Getting the most out of this requires the right approach.

Even if you're posting it online, you should always consider advertising your old furniture on multiple listing websites. By thinking about how to dispose of old furniture through sales like this, you maximize your chances of selling it quickly and for the highest possible amount.

Even if you're going to sell it, your old furniture could be too heavy to move around on your own — a single section of a sectional sofa can weigh up to 300 pounds! This doesn't mean that you should be forced to let it sit there, in the way of your new furniture and your feet, until someone comes and buys it. In this case, you should call a pro to have it moved into your garage, storage unit or other open, out of the way space. Even if you can move your old furniture on your own, calling a pro is still a good idea, because they will be able to move everything through tight spaces without damaging it.

Donate it

There is a need for charitable donations for everything, including furniture, so this is always one of your options when considering how to dispose of old furniture. If you're making a donation, you shouldn't be forced to haul everything yourself. Have a professional come and do all of the work for you.

How to dispose of old furniture that is all banged up

If your old furniture is badly scratched, dinged, dented, broken or cracked, then you won't get any money out of it and no charity will take it. This means that you are quite literally just getting rid of it. When thinking about how to dispose of old furniture that is worthless, you will definitely need the help of a professional.

When you hire a pro to come and haul away your old broken furniture, you don't have to do anything. They will take it out of your home for you and haul it away on huge trucks designed to carry just about anything.

How to dispose of old furniture that you just don't want to deal with

Sometimes, even if it is in great condition, you just don't want to deal with that heavy, cumbersome, in the way old furniture. In this case, you should dispose of it in the same way that you would get rid of furniture that is all beat up. Just call the pros and let them handle the job.
