Moving offers an excellent opportunity to clear the old out of your life and make way for the new. There is no need to take old furniture, that you will likely never use again, to your new home. Instead, use the occasion to get rid of anything you don’t need. Here some great ideas of how to get rid of unwanted furniture when you move.

Organize your home cleanout

As you begin the laborious process of preparing all your belongings for the big move, organize your furniture according to which pieces you are taking with you and which ones you don’t need anymore. Use self-adhesive labels to identify which is which. 

Leave the pieces you are keeping for your moving company and turn your focus to the ones you are getting rid of. Divide them up into “Dispose,” “Donate,” and “Sell” categories. 

Sell what you can

Once you’ve decided which items you are going to sell, use online platforms, such as Craigs List, Facebook Marketplace or Nextdoor, , to advertise them and find buyers as quickly as possible. You could also offer them to friends and neighbors if you think they might be interested. Always make it clear that the buyer will need to collect the items in their own vehicle, so as to save you any further work. If you want to sell quickly, a good, old-fashioned yard sale will also do the trick.

Donate to charities

Send your donatable furniture to a reputable charity. The Salvation Army is a good option. You can call them and arrange a time for them to come and collect the old pieces.
