Recycle, Donate, or Get Cash Back!
The reasons for needing to get rid of an old couch, removing pre-owned furniture from your home, storage, or office are numerous. When contemplating downsizing, moving, relocating, the task of how to dispose of the home goods and furnishings you no longer want can become a daunting one.
Some of the challenges in figuring out how to get rid of furniture include dealing with heavy and awkward pieces to move, plus many cities also don’t allow furniture items to be left on the curb, meaning municipal services are not always an option for furniture disposal.
One: logistics. How do you dispose of furniture? Not many of us own large trucks or vans that can fit even a small sofa. Now you’re faced with making the rounds, calling all your friends to see who might have the means and ability to help. Or, there’s the hassle of renting a truck for a day (how comfortable do you feel driving an extra large vehicle around the city?!).
Two: destination. If and when you finally figure out how to haul away the items you no longer want, where do you take them? Simply dumping everything into the local landfill is not a good option for the environment as it can literally take centuries for those types of large items to decompose or break down. What organizations take used donations? Is there a recycling center in your area? The whole ordeal is not as easy as one may think.
Upcycle, Resell, Make Some Cash
The best option for you, your wallet, your community, and the environment is a proper decluttering service; one that provides great customer service and a hassle-free experience. Remoov is Phoenix and the Bay Area’s top hauling service, offering you a free estimate on the cost of removal and the potential resale value of all the furniture you’ll be passing on to its next owners.
How It Works:
Get paid. After pick up, items are sold via the best resale channel and you receive 50% of the value.
Pay it forward. Items not sold are offered to charities and you receive the tax deduction. The items we give to local nonprofits and donation centers, helps our community while reducing landfill waste. Many nonprofit organizations use furniture for offices, break-rooms, and meeting spaces. There are also several shelters and agencies that we are partnered with that provide household goods for families in need as well.
Remaining items will be taken to a disposal center for responsible decommission. Remoov recycles every bit of material possible. You can feel good about doing your part in being environmentally responsible when working with us. This is a good choice since many of our cities have enacted Zero Waste initiatives and Landfill Diversion plans to increase recycling efforts and reduce overall waste and landfill use.
To give you an idea, here’s a range of furniture items we take:
- File Cabinets
- Sofa Beds
WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS

In other words, your unwanted items do not have to end up in a landfill.
