We Accept

Our mission is to provide our clients with the essential items needed to create a home, such as chairs, tables, sofas, dressers, beds, and housewares.

When considering using our service please consider the following:

  1. Is the item in good condition?
    All items MUST be in good, usable condition – free from stains, tears, odors or major damage. If you feel comfortable giving items away to a family member or friend in it’s current condition, we will most likely accept it.                                                                     

  2. Is the piece free-standing, shorter than 6ft, and does not require major assembly/disassembly?
    In the majority of cases, our clients are moving into smaller apartments. Many also do not own tools. We want to make it as easy as possible for them to move in, set up, and get back on their feet with furniture that will fit their units and that doesn’t require complicated assembly.
