Charities are often on the lookout for high-quality pieces of furniture, so if your items aren’t damaged or overly worn, donation could be something to look into. As long as the charity will be able to sell the pieces and make a profit, this option is great for those looking to make a difference.
To find charities in your area that sell furniture, search online or take a walk through your local city centre. You can then get in touch with each charity to see whether they would be interested in taking some of your unwanted furniture and selling it on.
It’s also worth asking whether they have a collection service or if you would need to sort out transportation, as some charities offer a free collection service that you could take advantage of if you don’t have a large enough vehicle yourself.
Here are a few charities that are based throughout the UK and accept furniture donations:
It’s important to remember that if you’re looking to get rid of a large amount of office furniture, you may need to go to quite a few different charity shops. This is because just one won’t have the space needed to store the furniture and may not believe they will be able to sell all of the pieces.
Note: The original fire label must be securely attached to all upholstered furniture for charities to accept them.
