Free collections

We collect furniture free of charge!  As we have limited storage space we must therefore be selective with the furniture we collect.  Our van drivers are briefed as to the standard of furniture we can accept.  If they evaluate that the furniture is not suitable for our needs, they have the authority to leave it behind.  We apologise for this in advance, but as a small charity, we are unable to take items that we cannot sell. Thank you for your understanding.

The easiest way to arrange a collection is to email our office ( with a brief description of the items you would like to donate preferably with pictures. This enables us to do a first assessment of the suitability of the items. We will then contact you to possibly arrange a collection.
