You can sell your furniture online on auctions sites such as eBay, classified sites such as Craigslist or you can get rid of them through a yard sale.
Donate the furniture
If you don’t feel like selling the furniture or disposing them using junk removal services, then you can as well give it out as a donation. There are quite a number of organizations or establishments which would be interested in your old furniture, however shabby you might think they appear. Such organizations or establishments include local coffee shops, homeless shelters, local theatre etc. For instance, if you have an old book case, or an old, but clean couch with a few tears on the cushions, a nearby shelter may have better uses for them than the junk removal services.
Pass the furniture down
Some of the nice furniture you see in people homes has been passed down the family for many years. If you want to get rid of a an end table, a desk, a sofa or any other piece of furniture, you can probably ask among your family members if there is anyone who needs them. You may probably want to target family members who are still in school or have not made a lot of money to consider purchasing high end furniture. Such will always be a huge blessing to them.
Use junk removal services
Junk removal services should be the last resort if you don’t have any other means of disposing your furniture. With all the options above, none costs you money, and if you manage to sell your furniture, you will even get more money. But with junk removal services, you must dig into your pocket to have your furniture disposed and this is the bad thing about it. Again, if you have upholstered furniture, you may find that they are classified as hazardous or dangerous wastes, meaning that their disposal is highly regulated and the junk removal service company will have to charge you extra if you want them to carry away your furniture.
