They are all practical in their way, but at the end of the day hiring the best-price skip bins from Coastal Waste is the most economical and stress-free way to manage this process. Hiring a skip bin is the best solution for furniture disposal, especially when it is old, stained, broken and not likely to be used for any practical purpose ever again. If you want to explore your options, you can also consider these methods of disposal:
Getting Rid of Old Furniture: You Can Try to Sell It
If your furniture is still in good condition, it may hold value to other people. Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree are popular places to sell your furniture so you can make a bit of money that can go toward the new ones. This process is seldom easy, though.
You will experience tyre kickers, lowballers and people who don’t show up to collect. There are even scammers who will try to take your furniture without payment.
Getting Rid of Old Furniture: A ‘Free’ Sign on the Curb
If you have smaller furniture that will easily fit into a vehicle, putting it out on the kerb with a ‘free’ sign is an easy and quick way to get rid of it. Many people can’t say no to a free item, especially if it’s in good condition and easy to transport.
Getting Rid of Old Furniture: You Can Donate It to a Charity
If you don’t want to sell your furniture, you can give it away to a charitable organisation that can make good use of it. This furniture can be donated so that women escaping domestic violence can start again, for homeless people who have been newly homed or for sale in op shops so that charity organisations can make funds to continue their operations.
In many cases, these charity organisations will even come and collect the furniture for you, as long as it remains in good condition and is not stained etc.
Hold a Garage Sale
If you’re decluttering or moving, you probably have a lot of items to get rid of. Holding a garage sale is a great way to get rid of all that clutter while also making some money.
You Can Upcycle or Restore It
Old furniture can have a new lease on life with a bit of TLC. It can make a great project to send it back, repair it, put on new upholstery and restore it to life. It is a lot of work, but this can be rewarding for a lot of people and save furniture from ending up in landfills.
Trade it in for New Furniture
Are you replacing your furniture? Some companies may allow you to trade in your old furniture for a discount on your new items. When purchasing new furniture, make sure to enquire about the company’s policy on trading in/trading up.
They might even be willing to haul it away for you if you’re getting your new items delivered! Remember, it never hurts to ask.
You Can Take It to the Tip
If the furniture is too badly damaged to sell or donate and you don’t have the inclination to restore it, dumping it is likely the best option. This requires a lot of work though, labour, the cost of the tip and the hours in your day. Many of us don’t have time or the ability to haul large furniture items to the tip.
