3. Re-home your sofa
Then of course there is the option of re-homing your sofa by either selling or donating it. Often this can be done through social media marketplaces, to friends or through locally based charities such as the British Heart Foundation or Age UK.
This is certainly an attractive option to many since you can either make money or provide charity from doing so. It sounds like a win-win, right? However, there is a slight caveat. If convenience is important to you, this option is often more hassle than it’s worth.
Foremost, re-homing your sofa is reliant on you finding somewhere to re-home it – again, a process which can prove tedious and take time (often weeks!). Not only that, but charities are unable to accept sofas in a poor condition and without the necessary Fire Safety labels, whereas collection companies can accept sofas in all conditions and sizes. This is definitely a factor to bear in mind when deciding how to get rid of your old sofa!
4. Call in the professionals
Alternatively, you could hire sofa removal professionals to do the hard work for you. Their expertise means that you can rest assured that your sofa is disposed of responsibly and without hassle.
Contrary to all of the alternatives, if you decide to hire a professional to do the job for you, the process is often much quicker. In fact, many waste removal companies offer same day waste removal services at an affordable price.
So, how should you get rid of your sofa? Well, there are plenty of options available and which one you choose will depend on your needs! If you are happy to wait a while and have a few spare pairs of hands to help, then re-homing or organizing council collection might be great for you. However, if you value convenience, professionalism and your time and space, opting for a professional to get rid of your old sofa is likely to be your most favorable option.
