How to Get Rid of Old Furniture
Unusable furniture can begin to stack up and get in the way or begin to overtake the storage areas of your attic or garage. And, did you know a couch or old furniture and appliances could become a magnet for rodents? Here are five ways on how to get rid of old furniture near you.

Old Sofa Removal and Disposal
One thing you will want to consider is the weight of a couch. Couches, sofas, and loveseats can be quite heavy, especially if they recline or if they are sleeper sofas. Also, when the couch is located in a basement or the second or third floor of your home, getting the furniture out without damaging walls and floors will take some muscles and expertise.
A simple home renovation or update can leave you with a pile of unwanted furniture. Especially if it’s furniture that’s too massive to store. And paying for a storage unit can be costly if it’s going to be filled with items you’ll never use again. But Quikhaul LLC’s furniture removal services make it easy!
2. Place your old furniture on the curb to get rid of it
Do you have time to wait? Call your local waste management office or go online to schedule furniture and bulky items removal and disposal. The furniture can be placed on the curb after you have a scheduled pickup date. Do you need to get the job done quickly? Call Quikhaul LL® at 910-475-7000. Check with your HOA or go over the covenants and restrictions where you live to make sure it’s OK to do this first! Getting rid of old furniture can be time-consuming. It depends on what the furniture item is and what condition it’s in. Putting the furniture out by the curb lets others know that it is free for the taking. The only thing is, the neighbors may have some objections if it’s by the curb for too long.
Other items that Quikhaul LLC® will pick up
- wet Paint liquids (must be dried)

3. Donate your old furniture to local charities
If your couch, mattress, table, chairs, are still usable, call your local charity to see if they might have a family that is in need. The Salvation Army and Goodwill also provide pickup of old and slightly used furniture. The items they accept at each location will vary. Craigslist is always an “easy and free” way to advertise that you have items for free. They just need to come to pick them up. But, if they are soiled, worn out and broken, chances are they will not take them. This will leave you searching for someone to get rid of the old furniture for you. For a quick solution for the furniture, pickup contact Quikhaul LLC®.
4. Get rid of old furniture by advertising
There are many free listing services where you can advertise free old furniture. Notify your neighbors and friends at work that you have some items that you are giving away for a small fee or for free.
5. Call a friend with a truck
Do you have a friend or neighbor that has a truck? Call and check with them to see if they have any plans to visit the local landfill in the near future. If not, then you can rent a truck yourself. Renting a truck will cost you money and you might have to take some time off of work to get the job done. You will need some help getting the old furniture loaded and unloaded at the dumpsite. And, you will have to pay the landfill fees based on the weight of the used furniture. Get a quote today or call 910-475-7000 to schedule your appointment to get rid of your old furniture.
