You've Kept Us Busy!

You've been keeping us exceptionally busy this year with furniture pick-ups... thank you! 

Our volunteers and truck go out Tuesdays and Thursdays to pick up furniture.  We have very well organized donors who have been booking well in advance this fall.  So, if you're planning a move, getting new furniture or are tired of that piece of furniture you keep bumping into, please call us 3 to 4 weeks in advance to ensure a booking.

Just a reminder, we pick up quality furniture pieces from your home which are in good, saleable condition.  Unfortunately, we don't have the appropriate space, zoning or volunteers to fix or do a heavy cleaning of furniture.  Therefore, we ask that upholstered furniture not have any rips or heavy stains and comes from a smoke free, pet free home.  Some other items we don't pick up/sell are: large appliances, large televisions and wall units (unless they are made of SOLID wood).

We ask that you drop off all household articles to the shop at 50 Kent Ave., Kitchener.  Due to the truck's schedule, furniture is jam packed in the truck, which does not allow for household items and clothing to be picked up. 

Once again, thank you for allowing us to resell your furniture, keeping it out of the landfill and helping us to help others.
