3 Ways To Dispose Of An Old Sofa

If you have purchased a new sofa, you first need to figure out how to get rid of the old one. If you bought it new from a furniture store, it is likely that they will haul it away for you. However, if you bought a sofa from a retail store and are assembling it yourself, or purchased it used, you have to haul away your old sofa on your own. Here are three different methods. 

Use a Rolloff Dumpster

Your first option for getting rid of an old sofa is by renting a rolloff dumpster and having it picked up. You shouldn't pick this option if the sofa is the only thing you are throwing out, but if you are doing a lot of remodeling or renovations in your home. For example, you might not only be getting rid of old and broken furniture, but also remodeling inside your home by tearing down walls or adding hardwood flooring. This will leave you with a lot of remodeling waste that needs to be thrown out. Using a rolloff dumpster is a great way to get rid of it all at once.

Pay a Hauling Company

If you are just getting rid of the soda and possibly a few other items, you might want to simply pay a hauling company to pick it up for you. They do all the hard work, even picking it up from inside you home if you don't want to place it outside. They will pick it up and dispose of it properly. Some hauling companies also do recycling, so this can also be an eco-friendly way to get rid of an old and worn sofa. Others work with charities where they repair it and reupholster it before giving it to a family in need. Hauling companies will charge based on the weight of the items.

Donate it to a Charity

Your last option is to donate directly to a charity. You can either drive it to charity drop-off location or have them pick it up. Like hauling companies, the charity might ask for a small fee for the trouble of picking it up and hauling it away. This is a great option because you know the sofa will be going to someone who needs it. Even if your sofa has some stains, don't worry too much about that. They will either have it cleaned or put brand new upholstery on it.
