What sort of things do we take?
We take items which are of good quality, under 10 years old (except Antiques), including: dining suites, tables, chests of drawers, dressing tables, sofas and armchairs, beds (without mattresses), wardrobes, coffee tables and all sorts of wooden furniture.
What sort of things don’t we take?
Currently we are unable to take Wall Units and some types of bed frames
Are there any legal restrictions on what we will take?
Unfortunately we can no longer take electrical items. There are other items that we cannot take due to health and safety laws. For example:
- All upholstered furniture must have ‘fire tags’ attached. On sofas and armchairs this will read — “complies with the furniture and furnishings (fire)(safety) regulations 1988” and/ or “this item does not require a schedule 3 interliner”.
- Any glass larger than 21cm x 30cm (the size of an A4 sheet of paper) must be toughened or laminated. This is usually indicated by a BS kite mark or number.
Is there a charge for collection?
Generally there is no charge for collection of donated furniture within our area, providing it can be collected in our own vehicle. (We do, however, reserve the right to charge in exceptional circumstances or degree of difficulty)
