Find some great deals and get the space of your dreams with these helpful tips:

1. Visit the Free Section of Craigslist

Sometimes, people want to get rid of furniture, but they don’t want to move it or deal with the hassle of selling it (and they don’t realize a team like ours would come to pick the furniture up and drop it off for them). As a result, they turn to Craigslist to offer quality used furniture with just one catch: the buyer has to haul it.

If you’re looking for a couch, dresser, or virtually any other piece of furniture for your home, this is a great place to visit first. Check the “For sale” section of your local Craigslist site and scroll down until you see the “Free” segment. You’ll find everything from sofas to televisions, display cabinets, and more.

Once you’ve found something you like, borrow a truck from a friend or call our free furniture removal team to pick up the furniture for you!

2. Head to a College Campus on Move Out Day

Opportunism is everything when it comes to finding free furniture. While the items you locate here might not be in as pristine condition as what you’d find on Craigslist, you can bet the choices will be many. When college students move out of their dorm rooms, very few elect to take their old furniture with them. Instead, they give it away or recycle it.

This means there’s a wealth of options available for anyone who is enterprising and dedicated enough to show up and take advantage of them. On a good day, you’ll find nightstands, bookshelves, bed frames, and more (all of which make great upcycle projects!)  Be sure to leave enough room in the trunk to haul your treasures home at the end of it.

3. Scout Curbs in Your Neighborhood

Each week, most local cities offer a heavy trash pickup day. If you’re searching for free furniture, this is a great day to take a drive. Most of these funds will be parked on the curb with signs that mark them as free.

If you’ve got room in your car, and you get there before the trash truck does, you can haul these pieces home at no cost to you. Another great option? Visit yard sales toward the end of the day. People are more willing at that point of the day to give away the items they’d previously hoped to sell, and you might be able to haul them home.

4. Ask Around

Tell your friends and families that you’re looking for free furniture. More likely than not, you’ll find that people are willing to point you in the direction of free finds, or give you the items they’ve been considering selling or donating. Bonus? This approach will likely set you up with higher-quality items than you’d find on the web.

If you’d like to take your search digital, you can also post an ad on Craigslist that states you’re looking for free furniture. You’ll likely get many responses pointing you to free finds. You can also head to a Facebook group for similar results.
