Donate Used Furniture
If you would like to see what dates we have available, and/or arrange for a pick up, please click the big blue button below!
Will I get an income tax receipt for my donation?
Yes! You will receive an income tax receipt for the fair market value of each item donated. The FMV is based on used furniture and not the value of what you originally paid for the item.
What Items can I donate?
Generally, we accept any clean and gently used items of furniture that could fit in to a small apartment or basement unit. We ask that items are not ripped, stained, torn, or broken as we do not have facilities to make repairs.
For a comprehensive list, please tap the big blue button above and see what we accept!
Will you pick up my donated items?
Absolutely! We will pick up your donated items for a nominal fee provided that you live within our pick up boundaries of Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington.
What are the fees involved with a pick up?
The pick up fees are as follows:
If you can have your items OUTSIDE the home and in the garage or on the loading doc of your condo building the fee is $40.00 for the first item and $10.00 for each item after that.
If you require our movers to enter INSIDE your home to remove the items, the fee is $80.00 for the first item and $20.00 for each item after that.
If you require an INSIDE pick up from an apartment or condo building with an elevator the fee is $120.00 for the first item and $30.00 for each item after that.
*One item constitutes one set ie: a dining table and 4 dining chairs is one item, a dresser with matching mirror is one item, and a set of matching end tables is a set.
If you have a house full of items to donate, please list the items and we will happily consider offering you a flat rate fee!
Why is there a fee for pick up?
Can I drop off my items at the warehouse?
We would love it if you could drop off your items at the warehouse! There is no fee to do so, and you will still receive an income tax receipt based on the fair market value of each item you donate.
Every THURSDAY between 9 am and 2 pm there is no appointment necessary to drop off your gently used items.
Every other weekday we can try our best to meet you with an appointment. Just give us a call and we will see what we can do!
We are located at 505 Iroquois Shore Road Unit #8 Oakville, ON just swing around back to our loading doc and ring the bell for service. We re waiting for you!
What if I want to donate an item that is not in the list?
Limited space or demand determines which items we can take. If your item is not on the list we probably can t accept it. You can always discuss these items with the driver when she/he comes to collect your donation.
What happens to my donated furniture?
Donated furniture we accept is stored in our warehouse until a registered social service agency refers a client in need.
