    It felt so good to know you are truly helping a family make a home.......the furniture is FREE to people who qualify through the accepted agenccy of the Furniture Bank, You do pay for the professional furniture bank movers..who, by the way, will go to your upstairs.....However a healthy tax receipt is given......so we see it as a very worthwhile win win. It is a terrific IDEA! P and P Tinson

    I have used the Furniture Bank in the past and I was very happy to donate this furniture to them.. The 2 gentlemen that came to pick up were very kind and very professional. I hope to be able to donate again soon and I encourage everyone else to donate.

    An excellent way to dispose of unwanted furniture. The furniture bank team were very efficient. It was easy to organize a pick up of my gently used furniture and ensure it finds a home where it will be of use to someone in need. To cap it off they provided a tax receipt. Everyone wins!

    What a great service!

    Was provided with a quote for removal of items and estimated amount of tax receipt, by Sam, who was responsive and courteous. Fellows who came to take away the items were also courteous. This service is a win-win for donors and recipients. So glad I found them.

    We’ve been doing some renos in our home and Furniture Bank helped me repurpose the wall units that we took out of our TV room (are in great condition) to someone who can use them. So so happy to get another family to enjoy them! Thank you for the great team of people who helped set up the pick up and donation!

    Thank you very much - your company made the process easy and efficient, and the men who came to pick up my furniture were very professional and respectful. I'm happy to know that it will be given to someone who needs it, and not sold for profit, and I will definitely recommend your organization to others.
    Sincerely,

    We arranged to donate our mattress that we had purchased at Goodmorning.com but decided to exchange before the trial period was completed, so this was a three-way arrangement. Communication was excellent. The gentlemen who completed the pick up arrived within the allotted time frame and, in good covid style, waved and communicated from a distance. We received acknowledgement of the pick up (allowing us to process our refund with Goodmorning) and our tax receipt promptly. Excellent experience. We loved to know that good furniture is going to good use. Thank you for everything you do, Furniture Bank!

    Investing in the Furniture Bank service was well worth the $150. Less headache for me (selling furniture is such a pain) and I got tax receipt. The guys showed up on time and were very professional and courteous. The best part is the furniture didn't end up in the landfill and a family is able to enjoy it. Everybody wins!

    My experience with the furniture bank was fantastic. The team was wonderful, helping unload my car, giving me a tour of the facility and explaining the business operations to me. I highly recommend. Such a great way to give back to the community and re-use furniture that you don't need anymore.
