"Great job Furniture Bank team! The pick-up team arrived early on during our pick up window. They were friendly, courteous and hard working. We had a lot of furniture to be picked up and they were out within an hour and a half. They came prepared with everything that was needed. And to top it off, I feel good that someone else will be able to enjoy our well-loved furniture. Thank you so much; what a great service you provide!!"

Reviewer C

"I found Furniture Bank on Google. Their website explains all kinds of furniture they need. I sent an email explaining what I wanted to give away, and received an answer the next day with the pick-up price and amount of deductible tax. Within a few days, they sent a pick-up service and they collected the furniture, as easy as that, hassle free. Furniture Bank has a fair amount of pick-up trucks and most importantly, they answer your questions kindly and precisely. Thank you for all your work. Your team made this process smooth and I am so grateful for your hard work. "

#7 Better than Junk Removal

When looking to get rid of old furniture, you might consider hiring a junk removal service. However, choosing Furniture Bank instead offers several distinct advantages that go beyond simple furniture removal.

Here's why Furniture Bank is a much better option:

Fighting Furniture Poverty:

Unlike junk removal services, Furniture Bank takes your gently used furniture and gives it a new life by redistributing it to individuals and families in need. You’re not just getting rid of furniture; you’re helping to fight furniture poverty and make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

Your Environmental Sustainability:

Furniture Bank is committed to promoting environmental sustainability. By choosing us over a junk removal service, you’re preventing your furniture from ending up in a landfill and contributing to a healthier planet.

Charitable Tax Receipt:

When you donate furniture to Furniture Bank, you receive a charitable tax receipt. This is something junk removal services don’t offer.

White Glove Service:

Furniture Bank offers a premium White Glove Service where we handle all aspects of the furniture removal process, making it as convenient as possible for you.

Here's what our reviewers have to say about choosing Furniture Bank over a junk removal service:

"Choosing Furniture Bank over a junk removal service was a no-brainer. Not only did I get rid of my furniture, but I also helped someone in need."

Reviewer JJ

"Great experience dealing with Furniture Bank. From the first phone contact to the crew that came to pick up my furniture, the service was excellent. I originally had a junk pick-up service quote on taking my furniture away but it was twice as expensive and the Furniture Bank provided a tax receipt and the furniture would go to someone in need, not the dump. Consider the Furniture Bank if you ever have some furniture you no longer need."

Reviewer KK

"The charitable tax receipt I received from Furniture Bank was an added bonus. You don't get that with a junk removal service."

Reviewer LL

"Furniture Bank's “White Glove” service was fantastic. They took care of everything, making the process much easier than if I had hired a junk removal service."

Reviewer MM

"Choosing Furniture Bank was the right decision. The impact they make on the community is something a junk removal service simply can't match."

Reviewer NN

By choosing Furniture Bank, you’re not just removing furniture, you’re creating homes, supporting environmental sustainability, and making a positive impact on your community.

#8 - Providing Homing Solutions

At Furniture Bank, we don’t just provide furniture; we create homes. The concept of “homing” – personalizing a space to create a sense of comfort and identity – is central to our work. The importance of a fully furnished home is apparent in the words of our beneficiaries:

"Furniture Bank helped us turn an empty house into a home. This has made a huge difference in our lives."

Reviewer J

"It's more than just furniture. It's about creating a home. I can't thank Furniture Bank enough for this."

Reviewer K
