Furniture Bank's COVID-19 Strategy

Keep current with our ongoing plans for the charity to protect the community while supporting it.  

Let's #flattenthecurve together...Schedule your 'Distanced' Furniture Removal Service

How the service works?

  1. You get a jump on Spring Cleaning! Pack up, organize and group your donations.
  2. Move all items to be donated to the garage, driveway, the front porch or a storage/loading area in your building. Please mark each piece with tape that reads FURNITURE BANK
  3. Now Let’s Talk! Call: tel:14169341229 ex 2.
  4. Our team will review your items and give you an estimated value for your charitable receipt, the cost of service, as well as review the COVID-19 precautions being taken for your safety.
  5. You will pay over the phone prior to pickup or the day of. This removes an important contact point – no cash or payment terminal handling at this time (safer for both you and our drivers)!
  6. On the day of the service you will be provided an ETA and digital notices of our arrival time.
  7. Furniture Bank’s trained and professional staff will remove your furniture donations at a safe distance to you and your family.
  8. The only contact we will require is a signature verifying your donation has been collected.
  9.  Furniture will be returned and processed through our Health & Safety checks at Furniture Bank.
  10. Your tax receipt will be issued, right around the same time your items will have been shipped to families in need (about 72 hours).

What is 'Social Distancing'?

The Government of Canada’s website report “Community-based measures to mitigate the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Canada” states that:

Social distancing measures are approaches taken to minimize close contact with others in the community and include: quarantine and self-isolation at the individual level as well as other community-based approaches…

Hire us to remove your furniture!

We conveniently provide a paid pickup service! Your pickup fee allows us to keep doing good in your community. For a comparable price, why pay someone else to take your used furniture to the dump when you could pay us to pick it up, give it to a family in need, do your part to help the environment and give your furniture a second chance!?

  • Competitive pickup rates!
  • From your garage/driveway – physical distancing is a priority.
  • No tax! Pay NO HST when you hire Furniture Bank.
  • Support the charity operate!
  • Rush and weekend furniture removal service available!

A story of generosity, dignity & gratitude

When you give your gently-used furniture to Furniture Bank, you are the start of a chain reaction of kindness and compassion.

Watch this video to see what it means to a family to receive ‘new’ furnishings for their home and a fresh start in life.

If you’d like to give a family in need a fresh start, you can hire our team to pickup your gently-used furniture. Click here to request a quote.

Revenues generated from our furniture removal service are reinvested in the charity, allowing us to help even more families escape furniture poverty.

You have helped over 100,000 individuals!

That’s 100,000 individuals who – because of you – have the stability of living in a furnished home. And, while 100,000 is a really big number to celebrate, it is unfortunately just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in terms of need. With an estimated 50,000+ Torontonians experiencing furniture poverty annually, we know our work is far from done.

    Great organization that redistributes furniture to those in need of it. We had some furniture that we were not able to move into our downsized house and I'm glad that it is being put to good use, rather than being thrown out. I appreciate their work. Great communication on pickup time.

  • This is a great organization, all of the used furniture and other items is out to good use for people who need it. And you get a tax receipt! Dealing with them has been wonderful, so pleasant and efficient. I would use them again.
