Where Can I Dispose of Unwanted Furniture During or After A Move?

The moving process is difficult and can sometimes feel overwhelming. Depending on the size of your office or home, making a move to a new location can take up to 22 weeks. This period of time is often fraught with issues and unexpected delays. Just when you’ve found a property, you’ll find yourself thrown into the mortgage approval process, building surveys and the hiring of removal firms. Though the actual moving of your belongings may only take a few hours — depending on the efficiency of your removal team, the size of your house, the amount of furniture and the location of your new property — the total moving experience extends far beyond this. Even the post-move process takes a long time, with many people saying they’ve spent months unpacking into their new home.

With all the stress that’s associated with moving, having one less thing to worry about is important. And moving furniture is a big worry. You might start to ask yourself about the logistics of moving certain things:

  • How did I get that sofa upstairs in the first place?
  • Will the removal men be able to get it out of the house?
  • Am I going to have to disassemble that IKEA bed frame in order to get it out the front door?
  • Will that old dresser fall apart if we try to move it?

The examples are endless and it's often hard to predict which pieces of furniture might pose an issue until the actual moving process is underway. And then there’s potential cost implications. What if keeping certain pieces of furniture forces you to upgrade to a bigger removal van? In some cases, it may actually cost less to dispose of old furniture and buy them new on the other side, once you’ve moved in.

A big benefit to this is that getting rid of your old house’s furniture and replacing it once you get to your new house allows you to redecorate and give your home a fresh look. You can choose new furniture that is better suited to the house’s layout, colour scheme and size, making your new home even more lovable.

But how do you get rid of unwanted furniture during a move? That can feel like a stressful process in itself, but there are a number of ways of doing it:

  • You can give the furniture away to family or friends
  • You can donate it to local charity shops
  • You can sell your furniture online
  • You can recycle unwanted furniture at a local recycling point

The trouble with all of these options is that the disposal of unwanted furniture becomes another stressful task on your to-do list. In most cases, you will have to move the furniture yourself, which can be difficult or even impossible for some people.
