How much will it cost to dispose of my sofa?
For a quote for your sofa disposal, please send us over images of the sofa and the postcode. The cost can vary depending on the size of the sofa, and how many need disposing.
Typically, to collect a 2 seater and a 3 seater it is £99+VAT. A three piece suite can often be £125+VAT.
How quickly can you collect my sofa?
Subject to availability, we will aim to collect your sofa within 3 days of initial enquiry. There may be a chance we can collect the next day. We will work with you to get a date that works for you ready for your new sofa to be delivered.
Can you dispose of my three piece suite?
Yes, we can take away the whole suite for you. Just send over the images and we will quote for the full collection and disposal.
What if my sofa does not have the fire label attached?
This is no issue for us, we are simply disposing of the sofa on your behalf. It often happens where a charity shop or buyer has rejected the sofa due to not having the label, but rest assured this will not effect the safe disposal.
Old Sofas Collected & Disposed of Legally
In the UK, armchair and sofa disposal is the number one contributor to bulky waste, with more than 200,000 tonnes removed from properties every year. Yet unsurprisingly, this is also one of the most unpopular items to get rid of – mainly due to the cost and hassle involved.
With any kind of bulky waste – that is, anything that won’t fit into your wheelie bin – there are a number of options. The most straightforward is to pay a trusted company, like JS Removals, to dispose of your old sofa for you. We’ll arrive on a day and time of your choice, work around your schedule, and arrange for the sofa to be collected from inside your house, so there’s no need for you to do any heavy lifting in preparation for us. As long as there is a clear route to the sofa from the front door, we’ll be fine.
On top of this, you’ll get peace of mind that your sofa won’t end up as part of a mass fly-tipping event, or get dumped into a neighbour’s garden, but instead will be dealt with in an environmentally-friendly way. We are issued with a waste transfer consignment note for every deposal that we carry out. We hold this as proof that your sofa has been disposed of correctly.
Is there another way to get rid of my sofa?
Of course, there are other ways for disposing of or getting rid of your old sofa. You can always take it to your local waste recycling centre yourself. They’re generally more than happy to accept large pieces of furniture from the public, though if you don’t happen to have an empty van you can use to transport your sofa to the centre, you’ll find the whole thing an arduous task.
Your second option is to resell, usually through an online marketplace such as Facebook, eBay or Gumtree. Here, you can specify that the buyer is responsible for removing and transporting the sofa, so you don’t need to worry about getting it out of your house; there is always the risk, though, of prospective buyers not turning up, haggling on price or not showing any interest.
The third avenue to get rid of your old sofa is charity shops, especially those that specialise in furniture, as they will often collect the sofa and sell it on in one of their shops. This can be a good option if you’d like some benefit to come from getting rid of your sofa, but charities often will not come into the house to collect, so you’d still be responsible for getting the sofa out of the house before disposing of it.
The same is true of council waste collections, which often expect you to leave things outside your property in the early morning. This isn’t ideal if rain is forecast. Equally, many councils limit bulky items to two – not much use if you’re disposing of a three-piece sofa.
So when all is said and done, sofa disposal from a reputable trader is by far the easiest and most dependable option. It involves little effort on your part, beyond booking the collection and being at home when we arrive, and also gives your sofa the best chance of being disposed of in the most appropriate way. With JS Removals, we also offer a competitive pricing structure and a range of slots to suit your needs.
For professional, reliable sofa disposal use a removal company you can trust, book your collection with JS Removals and then sit back, relax and let us do all the hard work!
