Wondering What To Do With Old Appliances? (Checklist)

Posted by Junk King on Oct 24, 2019 10:30:00 AM



If you find yourself stuck with a washer, dryer or refrigerator that no longer works you may be wondering what to do with old appliances? Wonder no more!

Getting rid of your old appliances can be a challenge. If they are still in working condition then you have a few more options. If they aren’t, it’s pretty straightforward.

There are a few major considerations to take into account when planning appliance removal. The first and most important one is whether the appliance in question still works. This is important because that will determine if it can be sold or given away “as is” or not.

If your unwanted appliances can still be used, then you have a number of options for finding a new home for them. There are a variety of venues for selling them as well as gifting or donating these sought after items. 

On the other hand, very few options exist for selling or giving away an appliance that no longer works.

What You Need to Know About Getting Rid of Old Appliances

As every homeowner knows, keeping old appliances around the house can be a hassle. They might be able to make good use of an old refrigerator, for example, by putting it out in the garage or down in the basement. And why not? Additional refrigerated storage space can always come in handy. 

But the added energy cost may not be a good thing. Nor the space that old refrigerator takes up.

It’s worse for other appliances. Who needs two dryers or two stoves or ovens? Especially if they’ve just upgraded all their kitchen appliances? Maybe you can get creative and use your old washing machine as a planter in the backyard, but that’s a stretch for most people. And very few appliances lend themselves easily to being re-purposed in this way. 

Not to mention that many old, unused appliances present a safety hazard if left unsecured and unattended. This is especially true for refrigerators and mini-fridge units. These appliances can be a particular hazard for small children who might climb inside and shut the door on themselves. 

No, these things need to be gotten rid of and this requires a few well-considered steps to make sure the process goes smoothly and safely.

With that goal in mind, we have created this handy appliance removal checklist for homeowners, renters, property managers and business owners.
