When Furniture Removal Isn't DIY

Posted by Junk King on Mar 5, 2021 5:00:00 AM



We live in a DIY world. Almost anything you want to do yourself can be done with some help from online videos and websites. Except most furniture removal.

Unfortunately, no amount of How-To videos is going to make that giant sofa any easier to move! And when you need to get rid of furniture, just "knowing how" to do it doesn't mean you can do it. Fortunately, you have other options.

The Old Furniture Dilemma: Should It Stay or Should It Go?

Unless you're already in the process of picking out new living room or bedroom furniture, you still have a choice about whether to keep you old stuff or not. The problem is often knowing when it's a good time to get rid of the pieces.

With some furniture items, it's fairly straightforward. If you sit on your cushy armchair and it pokes you in the back side with broken springs, that's probably a good sign. 

  • Your recliner? Maybe the cracked or flaking upholstery is an indication that it's past it's useful life. Or the fact that it doesn't want to recline anymore without a fight!
  • And the coffee table? Those chips and dents are making it look a bit second-hand, not to mention the interesting pattern of water stains from cups and glasses.
  • And your bedroom? Does your bedframe make a racket every time you lay down or get up? And that chest of drawers that refuses to cooperate? You know, the one with the sock drawer you can't open any more?


Some people choose to decorate in an intentionally "retro" look and opt for furniture pieces that are classic 1970s relics.

But what if you just ended up with them? And they are definitely NOT your style? Maybe it's time for a new look.

Whatever the reason, old, unwanted or damaged furniture needs to be gotten rid of somehow. And, if you've tried moving some of those pieces, you already know that furniture removal is not a DIY task for most people.

No worries! Junk King is ready and able to take care of your furniture removal needs professionally and affordably!

Expert, Efficient, and Green Furniture Removal

While we understand that you could remove your own furniture and dispose of it yourself, we also know that there's great reasons not to.

Furniture is heavy, bulky, awkward to move and carry, and requires a truck to be hauled off to a suitable disposal facility. That's a big chore for most people - not even possible for many. 

Far better to use a firm like Junk King that is professional, reliable, and insured, and that specializes in residential junk removal, like furniture. In addition to having the expertise for furniture removal and disposal, Junk King is also the only truly nationally recognized "green" junk removal firm.

And this is important because that ugly, old, unwanted dining room table you need to get rid of doesn't have to end up in your local landfill. 

Believe it or not, many of the materials that your furniture is made from are recyclable.  While this does require that the furniture be dismantled, but once this is done all the steel, wood, plastics, and even most fabrics can be recycled. 

The bottom line is that your old furniture can find new life even if it's not sold or given away to a local non-profit.
