Most homeowners do not want to take everything from their current house to their new house when moving. So, what do you do with the perfectly fine items that you don’t want to keep?
There are a few options that homeowners have when deciding what to do with unwanted household goods and furniture. Some people just leave the furniture behind when they move but this often times costs more because they are usually responsible to pay to have these items removed if the buyers do not want them.
In some cases, people have great luck with putting unwanted furniture on the curb with a sign that says “FREE.”
A couple of other great options are:
1. Sell the items online:
If you look online at such sites as eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and other such sites, you will find that people buy and sell just about anything. These sites are great for people who want to get rid of old furniture and appliances and also make a few bucks while doing it.
2. Donate to your local favorite charity
Schedule an appointment to have them pick up your unwanted furniture. Keep in mind that there is up to a 2-week wait before they will be able to come out to your house because they have to service a very large area with a small amount of trucks and employees. Also, make sure to describe your items accurately because if the items are not in any condition to resell they will leave them behind and then you are back to square one.
3. Hire a professional junk removal company
If you are moving soon and you have some unwanted items and furniture that you were unable to sell or give away, it might be time to call a trusted, junk removal company. A good junk removal company will help you get your house ready to show by clearing out large accumulated piles of trash and other items throughout the house, in the garage, or side of the house that need to be removed in order to show your house in its best light. Often times they will work directly with your real estate agent and other contractors that might also be prepping the house for sale.
