When buying new furniture, we are often replacing existing items. Wouldnt it be ideal if we could have the old furniture removed at the same time we are receiving our new furniture?

Unfortunately, the removal of old furniture presents issues of health, safety and liability for furniture companies, and most of these companies do not offer a furniture removal service.  Some companies will move your old furniture to the curb where it will likely be transported to a landfill site.

Listed below is a list of major furniture stores in the GTA and the service they provide related to furniture removal:
