Unwanted household items – what are my options?

There comes a time when that old sofa or chest of drawers is no longer wanted. Maybe you’ve redecorated, ready for Christmas, and that dining room table doesn’t quite fit in anymore. Or maybe you’re moving house and that sofa is just way too big for your new front room. What are your options for disposal of these large household items?

Giving it away

You could try rehousing it. Check with family and friends to see if anyone is in need. At this time of year especially, not everyone has spare cash to spend on new furniture, and your unwanted item may be just what they are looking for.

You could try advertising on social media – there are lots of local selling pages on Facebook. Sites like Gumtree or Preloved are also great ways of finding new homes for unwanted items and you can post adverts for free.

If you are doubtful that your item will ‘sell’, why not give it away to a charity or advertise it as ‘free for collection’ in a newspaper or shop window?
