Why do we charge a pickup fee?

At the core of this question lies the fundamental principle that guides us: We are a social enterprise dedicated to maximizing our impact through smart business practices. Imagine, for a moment, the alternative. Without the modest pickup fee that we charge, our operational capacity would be significantly diminished. Relying solely on the funds procured from municipal organizations, we would operate with perhaps four trucks—a stark contrast to the thirteen trucks we currently deploy. Contemplate for a moment how much LESS furniture we would be able to deliver to those in dire need. 

Investing in impact and community

But this isn’t just about numbers or logisticsit’s about people. The pickup fee directly supports those employed by our social enterprise through the Leg Up Program, creating crucial job opportunities for members of our community. These are roles filled with dignity, purpose, and a path forward—a tangible expression of our commitment to not just provide furniture but to uplift lives. 

A top-notch service that cares

The fee we charge is not merely a charge but an investment in a service—a top-notch furniture removal service to be precise. This isn’t about parting with something unwanted; it’s about the careful handling, the dependable removal, and the efficient team that treats every item with the utmost care.  

Would one question a junk service for charging a fee to remove unwanted furniture or household items? Likely not. The reason being there’s a recognition of the value in the service they provide. In our case, that value extends far beyond the mere physical act of removal; it feeds into a cycle of giving, receiving, and empowering. 

Our customers are purchasing a top-notch furniture removal service. The competitive fee we charge is strictly for the service we offer. This encompasses the full package, from dependable removal to an efficient and hardworking team that handles your furniture with utmost care.  

Like any business, furniture removal services, including us at Furniture Bank, must charge a feasible fee to cover service costs. This includes vehicle maintenance, driver costs, and a dedicated team that carries out the furniture removal. It’s important to understand; the items we collect are not a source of revenue for us. Instead, we distribute them at no cost to those who need them most. All profits generated through our removal services directly fund our ability to continue offering home essentials to clients. 

How much do you charge for furniture pickup?

There is a minimum fee of $160 for our pickup service. The total cost of a pickup will vary based on item quantity, distance, and location.  

Contrasting with typical junk removal services, the perks included in our pickup service encapsulate much more than just the convenience of picking up your unwanted pieces:

Don’t just settle for any furniture removal service. Choose Furniture Bank, avoid the dump, and make a real, positive impact within your community.
