How To Remove Your Old Couch

affordable dumpster rentals Chattanooga

What do you do when you have an old couch lying around in your storage unit or garage? If you are moving to a new place, getting renovations done, or simply decluttering, then it’s best to get your old furniture out of the way first.

Here are the ways you can easily remove your old couch:

1. Dumpster Rental

When you call a company to rent a dumpster, they will drive over and drop it off at your location. There are primarily three sizes available, and you can order any size according to the measurement of your sofa or other junk items. You will need to move and load your sofa in the dumpster, and then the company will take it away. You will also have to pay a fixed fee for renting a dumpster.

Renting a dumpster is also beneficial if you have a lot of junk or furniture to remove, especially if you are moving to a new place or downsizing your home.

2. Sell It

Here you have two options; either sell it as it is at a low price or renovate it and sell at a higher price. To renovate your old couch, you can reupholster it and it will look almost brand new! You can attach a price to it and sell it on different social media platforms like Esty, Facebook, and others. If you have a lot of stuff, you can also hold a garage sale at your house.

3. Donate

Donating your old furniture is a great way to get rid of it, and more importantly, an excellent way to give back to your community. You can donate your unwanted couch to charity centers or needy people where they can make good use of your old furniture. But make sure it is in usable and clean condition before dropping it off.

4. Disposing

Before you dispose of your old couch, remove all the cushions. You can even reuse them if they are in good condition. Check for food debris, litter, coins, and other small items on the sofa as things can slide inside. Clean it with a hand vacuum and dismantle the fabric by taking it off. Sometimes the fabric is stapled on, so you will need to unscrew it. Next, remove all the small metals with a plier. After disassembling the couch, you’re left with a wooden frame. If you have a saw, you can easily cut the wood into small pieces that you can pack in bags and dispose of it at the landfill.
